The food was DELICIOUS!! Will be back! Great service, lovely vibe! Great value for money. Was busy in the venue from 5:30 but still felt like you were the only ones in there, thank you.

We had a lovely evening at Indian Ocean using Eat out to help out scheme. Staff are very accommodating and the food was top notch. I have often glanced at the restaurant while passing on Manor Road but we finally had the opportunity. Its a...small but comfortable nook with not much of waiting crowd unlike many other restaurants with mile long queues!! Do try chilli machli!!More

This restaurant was always my 'tour de force', following yesterday, I am tempted to rethink. The staff still seem nice, the food is OK, but they seem to have gone down the road of many others in the shrinking of portion sizes. Price wise they...are now quite competitive, but I have to ask myself, it's one thing going 'to 'la balle', but do I want to come home hungry? Of course the restaurant and readers may say 'well just order more', that being the case, my feet would simply take me in another direction. The availability is there. It is a very thin line between profit margins and customer satisfaction. I fear this hungry bird may well have come home to roost!More

Went few weeks ago. Food came out and was given out to wrong people. Not once but three times. Did give my husband another meal as I had started eating his. But too many mistakes. The keema nan wasn’t as good as others I’d tasted....Was a Saturday night and very busy. But was unlucky with our choice. The table next to us was for 4 but 5 came in so they squeezed another chair in round the side so stopping out access to go to toilet. Very Unprofessional and wouldn’t return.More

I went to this restaurant for a change last week. The menu is very extensive, with a lot of different options. The prices are a bit more expensive than other surrounded Indian restaurants but the quality is good. There were two waiters, one of them...was friendly, the other one seemed upset, very serious and not many words. We had some papadoms, with some chicken dishes, rice and bread. Everything was very good. I will recommend it. If you go at the weekend, book in advance, as there are not many tables.More
