It was my first time trying this place. Friday lunch times are very busy. You would have to get there before 11:30 to get a seat. Also their parking lot is way too small. You have to park down the street. Food: Small size buffet. 2 kinds of soup (one was ginger tomato and the other was lentil vegetable). A... More

Most Indian restaurants in Eastern Canada are North Indian. It is a rare treat to find a really good South Indian place, and this restaurant qualifies. The vegetarian thali is really good and the serving size is generous. I ordered the Malabar Style Biryani and it was good, but I much prefer the thali. I went for Sunday brunch and... More

The lunch buffet has a great variety of salads, curries, and other various dishes, as well as soups. Staff is very friendly. Great value for money. Lots of options for vegetarians. Overall... More

I was very surprised at how good the food was. I went for dinner with some friends and we shared a few dishes. The curry chicken tastes great and look freshly made. The naan bread was perfect, and the rice smells wonderful. The beef dish was second to none, it was moist and tender and hot enough to enjoy but... More

From outside it looks understated. Perhaps even a little shady. But inside is a comfortable dining room and amazing food. Lots of vegetarian and vegan options as well. Good service. Reasonable prices. Fabulous experience.

If you are craving south Indian cuisine drive to st. Laurent and visit coconut lagoon. The fabulous food is accentuated by the friendly staff. Every delicious dish will encourage you to return.

Made the first of what will become many visits to this restaurant for their buffet lunch. Having lived in India for years, their menu really hit the spot. Tasty, with a good variety of veg and non-veg dishes. Definitely a treat to find this place.

We've been at this restaurant for the past 3 years and it's always been consistent in food quality and service. Our favorite dishes are the nilgri chicken and the lamb korma. They also have Excellent samosas with a coriander sauce. We have never been disappointed so far it's worth the stop.

We visited Coconut Lagoon on a Monday night for a friend's retirement. The atmosphere was nice, and the service was very quick. The server was helpful in recommending food choices and we decided to share a mushroom curry, butter chicken and beef curry with naan between 3 people. The food was so tasty although the portions weren't very big for... More
