I'm usually not a fan of buffets but today we tried the lunch buffet. Wow! Two soups were available, lentil/tamarind/chili/herbs that I thought was unique, and a carrot/tomato and ginger concoction that also was delicious but the lentil was my favorite. The 10 hot entrees ranged from chicken, lamb and salmon to vegetarian . The curried salmon, I just couldn't... More

I am not sure why this restaurant get such amazing reviews. It's not awful but it is not good either. The food is very bland. This is what my husband and I ordered: Appetizers: - Aloo Tikki Potato patties - The aioli sauce was good but the rest was not very tasty - Crispy Lentil Doughnuts (Vada) - The chutney... More

I read the reviews and thought I would give it a try...what a disaster. First off NO PARKING thank you to the business next door so I didn't have to walk forever after finding a parking spot. The seating was beyond cramped and uncomfortable pray you don't get seated beside a loud mouth because simple conversation at your own table... More

This is one of those places you prob pass by everyday not knowing it even exists. A friend of mine brought me here and parking ia limited, so we parked in the lot across the street. As soon as I open my car door, the delicious aroma of Indian food poured in. I was surprised to see how busy it... More

A most enjoyable experience. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the food from this area of India and helped us make excellent choices from the menu. I intend to return with my husband and have already recommended this place to friends who love Indian food.

Will definately return. Nice but not big restaurant. You may want to reserve for dinner. Even on Wed it was busy! Staff very polite. If you enjoy south indian food, this is THE place to go!

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
