Who would have thought, amazing Indian food in Bocas del Toro?! I was so happy to find this restaurant, serving up some of the most delicious and authentic Indian food I have ever eaten. The menu is really extensive and includes a good variety of vegetarian dishes. The cocktails are amazing and very inventive. There is also great dessert and... More

Came to Om on a recommendation from my friend, Judy. The first thing you notice is the delicious aroma of spices followed by the sight of all food being made to order in the open kitchen! Def order one of the thalis, so you can try everything!!!! Don't miss the Chai tea...some of the best I've had in a long... More

In our view this is the best Indian meal we have had since leaving the UK three years ago and better than many we ate there! We shared the mixed starter and each of the four dishes was beautifully spiced and perfectly cooked. We then shared a fish curry which, after the shared starter, was quite sufficient as it was...

Great atmosphere and even better food! We had difficulty finding somewhere good to eat in Bocas. This place was only recommended to us on our last night unfortunately. We all agreed food was delicious and would love to have eaten there again! Kitchen in view looked very clean also. Enjoy!

I went to Om all the time with friends and family back in 2011 and 2012. Was one of the best on the island and you could always count on getting great Indian food for a decent price and with good service. A lot has changed. It moved, the food is bland, the ambiance is bad, and prices are ridiculous.... More

We enjoyed some great food at Om Cafe, while enjoying a bottle of wine on the balcony. The prices were great and the portions were very large. We shared a couple of baskets of naan and recommend the butter chicken and vegetable curry.

This is one of my favorites with THE OLD "El Pecado" If you are looking for something different, fresh and tasty, this is the place. The owner made almost everything herself. The team is great too, you feel like home at OM ; ) They've been there for a while, the food is always good. If you go to Bocas,... More

After months on the road I've been grasping any chance I can to get a good curry! The service was friendly and the building has a fantastic ambiance and low lighting - people often taking photos of the decor. For this reason I'd recommend it for couples. I had veggie red curry one night and although a little too spicy... More
