Love the food and the restaurant, takeaway services let them down!

I LOVE Indian Ocean. Whether I'm wanting a takeaway for myself, myself and my partner or a group of friends, it's one of my top spots. I have only been into the restaurant once but it was divine! Service was great, food delicious and very nicely presented, and the drinks were reasonably priced. I... read more

Visited the Indian Ocean a couple of years ago whilst looking at the university, as we were back in town we thought we'd make a return. We pre-booked (not needed as it was reasonably quiet) and had a warm welcome on our arrival and quickly asked for our drinks order. There were a number of dishes that we new to... More

We ate here and didn't enjoy it at all. The poppadoms for a start were STALE. These were just a sign of what was to come I'm afraid. None of our meal could be classed as tasty. It was all so very bland. We eat in Indian restaurants a lot and we weren't impressed with the waiter either. We had... More

We were visiting Loughborough for the weekend and were just passing through town, looking for a place to eat, when the Indian Ocean caught our eye. With the only other curry place in sight being the considerably more expensive Salim's down the road, we opted for this one. The two of us were given a warm welcome and were quickly... More

We nipped in off the cuff, no booking, hadn't really thought about what to eat. It was a Tuesday night and the only traffic through the place was from the take away menu when we arrived. We chose our own table and had a couple of beers, followed by obligatory dips and popadums, then into the main course - a... More

We were desperate for a curry and glad we found this place. We started with a shared onion barji... Very nice. For mains i had a house special - Naka chicken, nicely hot and spicy. The missus had her usual king prawn korma which was again very good. The breads were ok but not the greatest. Just had the leftovers... More

We ordered a take-away and were told it would be 45 minutes. After a hour and a half they hadn't turned up. We tried ringing several times but the phone just rang out. After 2hrs they finally turned up. We sent them away. We will never use them again.
