Really delicious Indian food, with a good level of heat. Interesting and extensive menu. The paneer chili masala is a must-try!

Just finished eating my take away lamb rogan josh. Was one of the best I've ever had. Servings are large even comes with extras. Would highly recommend this to anyone in Inverness looking to munge down on some Indian food.

It was a rare delight to find a halal restaurant on our holiday to Inverness, so upon recommendation we visited Indian Ocean. The location was good, and it was fairly well decorated. However the greatest failing of this place was the service; after 30 minutes with no sign of the food we were getting impatient, in-fact upon questioning it turns... More

We visited here following recommendation. Brilliant food, portions of a good size, plenty choice. Service was very good in a relaxed atmosphere. Definitely worth a try.

We arrived in Inverness by train around 1 p.m. and found this little place just down the street. We were a bit tired of the hotel cuisine we'd been encountering on our trip, and were ready for something different. The waiter was helpful and friendly with a good sense of humor, and the food was plentiful. We made the mistake... More

Struggled to find a good Indian restraint, finally found this one. Defiantly not disappointed. Service was quick without being intrusive. Food, tasty and large portions. Decoration in the restaurant does need a bit of upgrading but did not take away from the whole experience.

After deciding to go to this restaurant after reading the reviews on here I was hoping that we were going to have a great night. Total opposite!!! Having arrived we were quickly greeted and sat at our table. There was only about 5 tables occupied. Drinks and food order were quickly taken and served poppadoms. We were then left waiting.... More

This restaurant put out a very good Biryani - good portion of meat, deep flavour and a good portion of rice too. I like the fact that it came in a heated server which kept the food warm throughout the meal. The service was good, but not the greatest ambience. Still, looked clean and overall a pleasant experience.

My partner and I called in for dinner at short notice. The food was very tasty with depth of flavour rather than just heat. The service was excellent and friendly and the food arrived in a timely manner. Will definitely go again and recommend it.
