The place is popular and buzzing. Being an Indian I found the food tempered down a wee bit too much for the authentic INDIAN palate. Being a vegetarian did not taste any meat.

This is our official favorite eating stop in Ottawa! Been here twice so far, and both times was exceptional. Everything from the food to the service. Wish the place was a bigger so that is a separate area for those waiting for a table to stand (so that they don't have to be watching everyone eating) - other than that,... More

Very expensive for what you get, I've never been full after eating here. Not sure what all the hype is, their buffet is limited selection and their dinner prices are sky high for tiny portions. Sure the "quality" but you still need to provide some sort of fulfilling experience where the client doesn't leave hungry.

This was the second time I ordered take out from this restaurant. The first time I was extremely happy with the quality of food and the size of the servings. I can't say the same for this last time, which was August 17th for dinner. The serving sizes for the pricer were ridiculous. The containers were not even half filled.... More

Ottawa has a handful of indian restaurants, and this is my personal favourite place to go! I have never gone to their buffets, but for dinner I would highly recommend the butter chicken served with the lachha paratha, the flavours are spot on yet still unique (having the keralite influence). The parathas are light, always made well, and accompany the... More

I had visited this restaurant expecting authentic South Indian cuisine but was disappointed. The Dosas and Utappams were a bit cold and bland in taste. The Idlis were too hard. But the Aloo tikkis were spot on

Went there for dinner last night and luckily we got there early, because the resto was full by 7:00. This was our first time, so we asked for help and we chose the lamb Thali, which was exceptional. Service was also exceptional. I will go back and will recommend.

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
