Had a beautiful meal here just minutes ago and I would recommend this to anyone that's like Indian food. It's the best Indian we've had. Great vegetarian options and a few European optician too. Only think I'd add is when they say medium its quite mild. Other than that, spot on. We'll be back!

Came here Wednesday 29th April during our short break in Inverness after reading reviews and we are very glad we did. The restaurant was clean and the staff very friendly but most importantly the food was very good, well presented and tasty. Well worth trying if you like a good curry.

Best Indian in Inverness by a country mile! I moved to Inverness about 3 years ago from Glasgow and it was dfficult to find a restaurant on a par with those back home. Thankfully my husband and I stumbled upon the Indian Ocean and it has become a regular haunt. Great food and fantstic staff.

A very fine and detailed menu, with many dishes we had not experienced before, including several fish dishes. The Staff were attentive and knowledgeable. The food was good and not too spicy, albeit more expensive than a typical Indian Restaurant.

The carpet might be ageing, and the music a bit strange, but this is a great restaurant, struggling under scaffolding, the food, and the service are brilliant., I had the Chicken Tikka starter, which was so tender , with salad ( which I never normally eat in Indian restaurants ) and a wonderful Lamb Karahi , with thickly chopped onions,...

Returned to Indian Ocean restaurant for a meal last Saturday and as usual we were not disappointed. The restaurant was almost full when we arrived,and we had not booked,but there was no problem getting a table. We did not have long to wait for our orders and they were up to the usual high standard. Reasonably priced, nice atmosphere and... More

Well prepared and presented food. As some of the other reviews have said the restaurant currently suffers a bit from the building in which it is located being covered in scaffolding. And on a mid week night in March it was probably not that surprising that it was a little quiet. But we were very well looked after and this... More
