Delicious food

The food was so good here! The menu is decent with a good few options. It's a nice little place, staff were nice. It has a nice laid back feel to it. I ordered the chicken korma which was really good! The portion was fairly good- not massive but enough for me. I had naan bread too- very nice... read more

The Indian food was quite authentic (mostly Northern Indian). The restaurant was filled with a continuous waiting line. This is a good sign of a very good restaurant. The prices were very modest and reasonable. ~$45 for two with a bottle of wine + dessert.

You simply must try this restaurant while in the Boca's! Great atmosphere is accompanied by wonderful fast, service! I had the Chicken Korma and hubby had the pepper. His was a lot spicier than mine, but none the less he loved it!

good ambient, tasty food, excellent live music and reasonable prices. Very nice menu and well served drinks. If there is a con, there is only a couple of desserts and the one we took(choco pie) wasnt amazing, but not bad at all. Staff was very friendly and we had a very good evening.

From the street, the atmosphere at Om was what first drew us in. Very relaxed, very unique. We started off with cocktails that were average, not really worth it. Our meals, however, were fantastic. Though the menu was quite limited the choices we did have were very delicious. Lucky for me mahi mahi was their catch of the day and... More

Nice balcony tables and good laid back atmosphere. Would have liked a bigger portion. No bottled water but buy by the glass or pitcher. Overcharged on bill but this was sorted out tho it should never have happened.

Om Cafe offers decent, but not great, indian food in Bocas town, near to the ferry landings. The price is somewhat steep compared to other resturants in the area, but if you are after indian food it is your best option. The balcony seats do offer a nice veiw of the street below, and you can people watch as you... More

I've been here a couple of times and everything I've had, I've loved. You can order individual dishes, or combination plates which are great if you have more people.

Liked food when we got it. Did not appreciate not being told that there was a group of about 20 in front of us and time for meal to be ordered an served would be well over a hour.

One of the best foods in Bocas del Toro. It's on the main street with all the other location in Bocas, but it makes the difference. This indian restaurant is outstanding in the offerings of Bocas and it deservers a visit. It's a little bit more expensive than the rest of Bocas, but if you like your special vacaction time...
