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

I was travelling for three months in central america, I still think of this place as the place with the best food I had. Order the plate where you can try 6 (5?) different dishes, Truly amazing.

Tasty food at fairly reasonable prices. A treat to eat . The building is a funky old Bocas original that has much charm. It has a balcony that let's you watch the activity on the Main Street below. We sat out on the balcony and enjoyed our meal. The service was quite good as well even though the place was... More

This place really had a great curry selection. The Fish and the butter chicken were two exceptionally great dishes. The samosas were over-priced (and a few other menu items) but all in all it is a tasty delight here in Bocas. The most note worthy part of the experience aside from the curry was the live music (amazing.) Check it... More

We love Indian food, and eat it quite often! Based on the strong TripAdvisor reviews, we decided to eat at Om. We started with Samosas (2 for $6) which were less than impressive and lacked the distinctive favors that we expect. I ordered Shrimp Tikka Masala and my husband ordered Buttered Chicken. His Butter Chicken was ok, but my shrimp... More

We sat on the outdoor patio, which was lovely as the restaurant was quite hot inside. The curries were delicious! One of the best kormas ever! Great options for vegetarians. The naan was less than spectacular, but the meal was good overall.

A place you wouldnt presume would be in Bocas. If you are tires of fried pargo or lobster go to om. Very good food and athmosfere! Price is also good on the expensive side. The only downside is that you can encounter a waitress from the US who basically has that attitude saying "I dont want to work" and will... More
