Great food! Seems to taste different every time?

My partner and I have been eating in and ordering out from Indian Ocean for around three years now and it's certainly our favourite Indian takeout. The food is delicious, I can't fault a single dish, and (particularly if you order out) it is very reasonably priced. Of course it is fattening, there... read more

Indian ocean is the answer for a lazy night where you can't be bothered to cook! Food is amazing, delivery is super quick! Never fails to impress! Perfect for a night in!

One of the best indian food in Bristol, plenty of choice if you like spicy food, loved it, I order takeaway from the restaurant from time to time, the food is really nice, I only tried mildly hot and proper hot dishes, which I were always satisfied with their quality.

Visited Indian Ocean with 2 friends on a Thursday evening and when we arrived we were the only customers there. Service was poor considering we were the only people in the restaurant. Poppadoms and drinks took longer to arrive than any Indian restaurant I have ever visited. My Dr Pepper (soft drink as driving) was flat (minor detail but still... More

Thanks for your review, we are sorry for your disappointment. we do value all of our customers honest opinions, all of our naan breads are freshly made, and we do stuff Keema(mince Lamb) inside the naan bread. About curries, some of our curries are dry and some of the curries are saucy as well. Sag dishes are mostly dry. please... More

We had a craving for a curry on Sunday evening so took a wonder out and came upon Indian Ocean and thought we'd give it a go - compared to the other two Indian restaurants nearby, it was the only one that had anyone else in it. We were really pleased when the poppadoms arrived as they were lovely and... More

Whilst in Bristol with work came here on a Thursday evening around 19:00 with my eldest daughter for a 'bit of a feed', after a recommendation from one of her friends. We're glad we did. The service was fine, the food was very tasty (we were warned about the spiciness of one dish which was a good touch, though we... More

This restaurant is fast becoming one of our favourites in Bristol. The food is delicious, tasty, hot and fresh. The staff are helpful and will gladly recommend a dish to suit your palette. It is fully licenced but also has a BYO policy, which is very handy. It has a good atmosphere and I would definitely recommend it to friends... More

We went here as a group the other night. It seemed although the restaurant was mainly empty that service was slow. Although the food looked freshly prepared so perhaps we were only waiting due to cooking times. The staff member serving us was polite and also provided our party with free Papadums with the dips for them. We all opted... More

My last review of this restaurant was glowing, friendly service, fantastic food and a great home delivery service. I believe it's changed hands in the last 12 months as I don't recognise most of the people working there now. The service is now poor, bordering on rude. The home delivery has gone downhill too, bits missing from orders, and while... More

Thank you for your review. We like the fact that you still enjoyed our food even though there were things missing from your order. We are really sorry for missing out your poppadoms. On that night there were hail stones so because of the weather conditions the delivery drivers could not keep up with the time promise. This is our... More
