We decided to try the Coconut Lagoon tonight after hearing about it from several people, and we were not disappointed. The food was delicious, the service friendly and efficient and the setting, while not fancy, was gracious, clean and inviting (the delightful aromas that greet you on entering are mouth-watering). We enjoy Indian food, but our experience has been limited... More

At first blush, this place may come across as a veritable hole in the wall, but each and every time we walk into Coconut Lagoon the mouth-watering smell of roasting spices reminds us why we love Indian food. We’re no experts on authentic Indian food, but everything is delicious (the parathas are to die for!), and the attention and service... More

I had heard of this restaurant a few years ago but only went for the first time in August 2014. It's true that there isn't a lot of parking but you can park in the adjoining streets. The restaurant decor is medium not luxurious but comfortable enough. I had the lunchtime buffet which is priced at 14.50 before taxes and... More

We went here with a group of 10 from work and were easily accommodated as we had reservations. Parking is difficult as there is limited parking, so you have to park down the street, so get there early! The buffet is $16.95 and it had 2 soups, butter chicken, masala chicken, lamb and salmon curry, a vegie dish and my... More

We went to Coconut Lagoon in the end of June with a friend to finally try one of the dosa spots in Ottawa. Being from South India, I consider myself a little bit of a dosa snob so I have pretty high standards when it comes to my favourite south Indian crepe. The medhu vadas and sambhar were what we...

In Ottawa it is difficult to find reasonably-priced restaurants that also serve good food. I have found many mediocre restaurants that are reasonably priced and many expensive restaurants that are just okay. However Coconut Lagoon meets all needs. One does not go there for the decor but the food is sublime. Wonderful flavours, excellent menu choice and very good servers.... More

We asked them to be sure to not add too much spicy to our dishes because our kids do not like it, but the food was so spicy, but the waiters was so nice and he changed the dishes to mild ones. The best dish we ordered was the chicken butter with nan ( testy) , shrimp & cchicken biryani... More

The Kerala fish curry - all the others seemed like standard Indian fare ! Aggressive wait staff. Parking is limited.

Don't be fooled by the rather ordinary plaza the restaurant is located in. Though it is not a big restaurant, it certainly packs a punch. The menu has more winners than losers and that is high praise coming from a native South Indian! The mango lassi is great (the mango beer not so much). The best thing were the piping... More

Very good service and absolutely delicious food! We met friends here for dinner and were not disappointed- I wish I'd discovered this place years ago! The lentil doughnut appetizer was very generous, and the light and fluffy texture divine. The veg thali plate was resplendent with 7 different mini-dishes (along with rice and porathas); the delightful hint of coconut milk... More
