The food here is great with something in every spice range. I personally don't like hot food. The mild butter chicken was perfect. My husband had pepper fish and they added just the right amount of spice for his request of medium. The service is attentive without being annoying and the price is reasonable for the quality of the food.

I went to this restaurant to try something new in Bocas Town and I was surprised. The foot was quite tasty and the staff very friendly and genuine. The atmosphere was relaxed. It is probably one of the best places in Bocas and the price is very reasonable.

Om has been around for a long time and serves outstanding food. We eat there frequently and are never disappointed.

Best Indian cuisine I have ever had. We had a client fly in from Aruba to spend 24 hours with us, and he had never had Indian food before, so our first thought was "OM" . The meal was incredible ( vindaloo chicken) is my best recommendation, the atmosphere is really swanky with cultural paintings and bangles hanging from the... More

Had a really great dinner here recently. Normally I avoid Indian restaurants and really dislike the food, but this was different, I would have ordered seconds it was so good. The restaurant itself is beautifully decorated and really cosy, the staff are really friendly which is hard to find in Bocas town! There was a really great guy playing live... More

We have been here twice in the past 3 weeks. Coming from the UK we crave curry on a regular basis. Nice little place, nice atmosphere, can get a bit busy and the second time we were there people were waiting 20 mins to get a table. We like our curries quite spicy and on the first visit the starter... More

Om cafe is the cutest, most cozy little restaurant in Bocas town with quite honestly the best Indian food I've ever had. We were surprised to love this place so much, but everything was on point. I had the rose sangria which was light and heavenly and then the chicken masala - it was wonderful and we are every bite.... More

Great Flavour and I love the little Balcony to watch over the street. The wine was good, It is pricier than many places in Bocas but the flavour was awesome. I had the Shrimp Tikka Masala and my friend had a Fish Curry dish it was all very good. We took the left overs home and they were great the... More

Who would have thought the most amazing Indian food I've ever eaten would be at a restaurant in Bocas del Toro, Panama. Between the amazing food and lovely atmosphere it's a must eat while you're on the island!
