A short 10 min car ride from the centre of town, but worth it. Great restaurant, run by an award winning chef with delicious food and friendly service. Popular with the locals. Would definitely recommend. Off street parking available - check out the website for details.

The flavours of the dishes are distinct, the food fresh and the service is spot on. Coconut Lagoon, although a small restaurant, is by far one of the best Indian food restaurants in Ottawa. They serve up a mouth watering salmon curry that i have not had anywhere else, and the peppered lamb fantastic....The vegetable dishes are unique. There is... More

I love coconut lagoon! It never disappoints with delicious authentic South Indian food. Everything is always fresh. They offer an excellent buffet as well. I've tried many dishes on the menu and all have been excellent!

Although we were staying in Kanata, we ventured across town because of the reviews written about this restaurant. We were very happy we made the trek (even during rush hour!). We appreciated the recommendations that were made on our selection. The flavours burst from each dish, enticing us to eat too much! The food was the best Indian that we... More

I was visiting Ottawa for the first time. I found out "Coconut Lagoon" online with excellent reviews by people all around the world. Being a keralite myself, I wanted to check out the restaurant myself. I went there twice (I became a fan of all their non-veg items after my first visit) out of my 5-day stay. I was impressed...

We have tried almost every dish on the menu at Coconut Lagoon and not one has disappointed. A small quaint location with excellent service, the menu has selections from Southern India, which are somewhat different from the usual, but don't worry they have a delicious Butter Chicken on the menu. Some selections that we love are nilgiri chicken, shrimp kakkan,... More

I have been wanting to write a review for this restaurant for a long time, it was my absolutely favourite restaurant when I was in Canada 5 years ago as an exchange student. I came back now to visit, and this was the first place I wanted to go back to. I wasn't disappointed, everything tasted exactly the same as... More

I have been to this restaurant several times and it has always been excellent! The service could be a little friendlier but the food is consistently good. I highly recommend it!
