Have been several times to this restaurant. Although it's a bit pricier than most Indian restaurants in Ottawa, the food is well worth it. Authentic, delicious, and easy on the stomach. If you want a good Indian meal, you gotta try this place

My husband, son and I went to the Coconut Lagoon on the recommendation of a friend. Excellent South Indian food, we had the SignatureThali plate, Nilgiri Chicken and beef curry along with very good appetizers of aloo tikki, prettily presented with great lime sauce, and chicken pakoras, crispy and delicious. A very enjoyable meal, and we would highly recommend for... More

We tried the soup of the day that was fantastic followed by the Chicken, the Lamb and the Vegetable Thali. The food was wonderful and the service was great!

We took a chance to find a table at lunch time and arrived before 12:00. We had heard that it is very busy. There was no problem being seated and glad we arrived early within 15 minutes the restaurant was full. The buffet lunch was the best my sister and I have had in a very long time. A variety... More

We couldn't wait to come to this restaurant, craving South Indian cuisine. It is hard to find parking near this place so you will have to park near a residential place. The owner abruptly asks each walk in if they have a reservation and then seems to have a problem with walk ins. I asked if they have a childrens'... More

We had the pleasure to celebrate our daughter's baptism at this authentic Keralite restaurant. The group was a mix of those you had not tasted Indian food, to my parents that we born in Kerala. My parents are old school and critical of most Indian restaurants. To date, this has been one of the restaurants that they were fully satisfied... More

We visited this place once. The food was good, tasty but the staff response was insulting. The person who took the order (maybe at his age forties, who was wearing a black semi formal coat) was very rude (at least to us, maybe he would have thought why should he care us being from the same country), didn't even have...

Been going once a week for lunch. Again today food was great, very tasty, not too spicy, in and out in 25 minutes, definitely my ''go to'' when in the St Laurent area. Awesome lunch buffet. Good Service and atmosphere. Highly recommend it.

This is one of the few Kerala style restaurants in Ottawa, with the majority of Indian restaurants catering to the North Indian style. Coconut Lagoon is a small restaurant but packed during lunch buffets especially on Fridays. The wait is never too long, but budget for a wait for 15-20 minutes during peak time. Food is excellent, which makes the... More
