Good Food and prompt service

Good Indian food. We went to this restaurant with an expectation of combination of comfort and exquisite food, and both those expectations were met.

I eat Indian food every other week and have my favourite restaurants near my home so it is easy to compare when ordering similar dishes. The Indian Ocean just did not cut it for me. The lamb was tough and the saucing rather bland.

One of the best Indian restaurant in Inverness. The staffs are great and the food has been full of flavour and fresh! Highly recommend eating here. The Lamb curry and Chicken Korma with Garlic Nan, is like true Indian taste. Service is very good.

I like spicy vegetables and paneer dish. Where ever I visit look for my favourite paneer dishes. I found my favourite paneer Garlic Chilli dish at Indian Ocean. Lovely, full of spice. We enjoyed Shob jydo Dall which was awesome. Definitely we will go again to try again.

A friend recommended Rajah Restaurant. We were lucky that Rajah was completely full that night. I asked the waiter at Rajah, if he could recommend a restaurant. He said for us to try Indian Ocean. We ordered 3 starters that were larger than entrees in some restaurants. Taste was great, price was cheaper than Indian restaurants in Miami. If you... More

Lovely friendly restaurant. The food was as good as we've ever had and the choice of meals was vast. I can't fault this and would have loved to go back and try some of the other dishes but as we were touring it wasn't possible. Highly recommended

The food was pretty average and nothing great to write about. The restaurant was neat and clean and the staff helpful. Ok to go if you desperately want Indian food.
