5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

This was the best Indian food we've ever tasted. Really great for vegetarians and very authentic. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We will definitely be back.

“Great new lunchtime menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Just been to Coconut Lagoon to try the new lunchtime menu and thoroughly enjoyed some very authentic south Indian food. We both had the South Indian Thali which includes popadum, pickles, rice, 6 portions of different curries and a small desert, good value at £6.95. Highly recommend.

“Good South Indian experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

This is the first time I've been to a South Indian style restaurant in England and I enjoyed the experience. Had masala dosa to start, which was very good; the curries were all kerala style, so they were a bit different from the standard UK Indian restaurant fare. Ordered some idli which were a bit too big and stodgy for my taste (even with the sambal), but not too bad. All the dishes came with lots of fresh herbs and spices (not necessarily hot), which was good. If you're in York and fancy a different type of Indian restaurant I'd definitely try it.

“Interesting menu, with some real star dishes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

A Truly Indian restaurant, with usual classics, plus interesting regional dishes to try. I would recommend the lemon chicken to start it is incredible, when i pick up a take away I order three between the two of us.The coconut rice dish is a must to try as well. Unusually for chinese or indian restaurants they really cook seafood perfectly here.
