I popped into Indian Ocean for dinner at about half-past nine in the evening when many other sorts of eateries have already stopped seating for dinner. But I was seated right away and my drink and dinner orders taken within a reasonable time. I had ordered the chicken tikka locknow with a vegetable rice, which arrived after about 25 minutes....

Ideal for folks who are staying at the Travelodge Seafront in Bournemouth as it's literally just around the corner. Other than the fact that the first waiter that came to serve us was a touch surly (no smile, going through the motions kind of thing) this cracking little Indian was one of the best I've been to in some time....

Six of us dined at the Indian Ocean while we on a stag weekend in Bournemouth. The restaurant was very handy for us as it was located opposite our hotel (The Bonnington Beach) indeed, the guy on reception recommended it to us. We dined early evening as we were heading into town for the night and although we didn’t have... More

I have ordered food to this restaurant several times and the result has always been the same a very good food for a take away menu and a quick delivery. The quality of the food is quite good and the amount is more than enough to feed one person.

Been here about 9/10 years ago and remember it being good then. Come back here and exceeded my expectations. From the outside the restaurant doesn't look much but once you go inside it is very nice. Friendly welcoming service, food is outstanding. Would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys a good ruby murray :-)

We booked this restaurant using a local discount scheme and it was our first visit. On arrival we were greeted and shown to a table. We were then offered a window seat when one became free which we felt was a nice touch. I noted that some of the upright chairs were ripped at the seams on the back and... More

We were Yanks and it was our first time in England, let alone Bournemouth, and kind of stumbled upon this place. Food was excellent and service was very good - efficient without being pushy. Glad we had a bit of a walk back to our hotel as we needed it after the filling and delicious meal.

We were directed to this restaurant from our hotel nearby and were very pleased with the food and the service. I had a King Prawn Biryani which was excellent and my wife had a vegitarian curry which was also very good. We like spicy, aromatic rather than burning hot so this was perfect,

Liked the look of this place from the outside and it seemed busy which is usually a good sign! Managed to get a table straight away and the menu looked great! Service was quick and our food arrived in no time at all. Food was lovely and we were very pleased with our choices and would certainly recommend this restaurant... More
