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!

There's nothing wrong with this restaurant, but there's nothing unique either. The best part is getting a seat on the patio overlooking 3rd street. The menu has you typical indian basics, with a vegetarian section.

This Indian restaurant is AMAZING!! Such great food, lovely atmosphere, friendly staff and they even had some live music going on too. We went as a group of 8 and all had different things which were equally delicious. We liked it so much we tried to go back a second time, however it was closed on a Sunday night...we all... More

The wife and I ate at the restaurant one evening the food was to die for. While we were there we ran into the family that had the apartment rented next to ours. They are long term expats we discussed the marvelous food with them they advised us that they enjoy the food so well they eat there at least... More

I was skeptical about going to Om Cafe as didn't believe the indian food would be as good as back home (I'm half indian), but it far surpassed expectations. Truly authentic dishes in a lovely setting - sit out on the terrace to watch the world go by while you eat.

From the street it may not look like much, but it is a very nice restaurant & bar. Finding Indian food here in Bocas was a very pleasant surprise. The atmosphere of the places is very pleasant and you can watch people on the street below. Very nice background music !!! That is played at the perfect volume so you... More

This really was a truly awful meal- sorry to say. Papadams for starters with I don't know what- some kind of tinned jelly I think. Papadams were burnt. Then chicken korma which was flavourless. To top it off 17% added to the bill. This really was a rip off and not good at all.

We're not new to Indian cuisine (I've lived in India myself for three years), so we can tell you: that IS the place. Food is very authentic and original, and if you get seated at the balcony, the view will definity the great addition to your meal (arrive for dinner early for that). It's hot in there and the staff... More
