We've been here many times. The food is delicious and the service is excellent. If you have any questions, just ask. The staff are well-informed. Restaurant parking is limited but there is lots of parking on the streets behind the restaurant. The lunchtime buffet is also excellent - lots of choices, including fresh dosas.

Loved everything I tasted. I went with a group of 10 friends for a birthday. They gave us the back room that would fit 20 guests comfortably. The service was professional and the food was so unbelievably delicious nothing was left over. Can't wait for my next visit. I'd absolutely recommend this restaurant for group events.

Food well spiced, excellent flavour. Portions more on the small size for the price. Service was average to above average. Decor was pleasant but a bit on the crowded side.

Classy and subtle food. A bit out of the way with parking not too good, but well worth the trip. The service is excellent. This one is a keeper.

It was busy and a little noisy but that was okay. I was there by myself and the service was very good and the waiter was attentive once they realized that I was there. Slight oversight. The food was very good and tasty.

Best spicy and south Indian malabari food around. Do try the Utthapam, the dosa, the egg appam. Thali is also a great option. Mouth watering spicy... awesome chili chutney.

Authentic and sooooo yummy. We are regulars at the weekday buffet. It is alway busy, if you do not have reservations, get there by 11:30am for lunch. It can be noisy, reminds me of India?

That restaurant marked me on my first visit in Ottawa 10 yrs ago and I returned tonight and it was perfect! The mango lassi was delicious just as I remembered! I will go back again sooner next time!

The typical buffet is usually not a "culinary experience". Well, this one was, and two weeks in a row! The buffet here is not about quantity (though the offering is quite varied) but rather about quality. This is Southern Indian cuisine (I think mainly from the Kerala region), so some of the choices are different than what you'd find in... More

Coconut Lagoon has been said to be one of the best Indian restaurants in Ottawa. We weren't disappointed in the food, we found the restaurant to be clean and the service good. However, we found the portions to be very small for the prices charged. A small dish of butter chicken contained approx. 6 small pieces of chicken and this... More
