I decided to try the Coconut Lagoon lunch buffet after I read about the restaurant in Anne Desbrisay's book, Ottawa Eats as the best Indian restaurant in Ottawa. I am not a big fan of Indian food so I was a bit skeptical going in. I was surprised to see the peppered lamb dish that is featured in the Ottawa... More

Had the buffet for lunch , the food is very well prepared and has a unique taste. The Indian food served is slightly different than many of the other Indian restaurants around. I am not as big a fan as some friends but it is very good.

Been here twice for dinner. Staff is friendly and helpful for first timers who aren't sure of the menu. Food is incredibly delicious - there isn't anything so far that I haven't relished. As mentioned, exterior isn't inviting, but inside is perfect.

Came here with my fiancée and her grandfather for her birthday. The food was incredible, the service impeccable and they even came out and sang happy birthday with a special birthday treat! We come all the time and drive half way across the city for the food. Cannot speak highly enough!!

Don't let the exterior of this restaurant stop you from coming here. Once inside, you'll find an comfortable room with just enough space between tables so that you don't feel crowded. To my eyes, the room looked like it had recently been redecorated. The staff is friendly and helpful. As we drove past to park on the street, one of... More

We had visited Coconut Lagoon in its beginning and liked it but did not love it. Given the glowing reviews and recommendations by friends and colleagues, we visited it again in August. It was absolutely delicious. We ordered what we are used to: biryani, butter chicken. It was so flavorful, we would have licked our plates if we had been... More

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

Lunch was great, lots to choose from and great selection, lots of flavours and nice wait staff. Not too busy at lunch, would also recommend take-out.

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
