We love indian food no matter where we are and this place was no exception. The butter chicken and the curry were both amazing. They had live music the second time we went and really enjoyed ourselves. The atmosphere is very cool and the restaurant sits out over the water. The service was always good, and the food even better!

My fiancé loves Indian food and so do I. "Don't have high hopes, have medium high hopes" I said, after all we are in central America ;) . Oh my.. I was wrong!! The food was divine, fresh, amazing Indian flavours. They source their spices from Panama City, and the head chef and owner cooks her own mother's recipes, all... More

Lovely little restaurant with delicious food. Many menu choices for vegetarians, which is a big plus for me! My husband and I were not impressed with the cocktails we were served but we will try another when we return. All in all, a very good experience!

Pro's: Very nice restaurant with a quirky Indian menu (and also Thai menu). Great cocktail list Con's: None Note: Chat to the boss lady Sunanda who has been running this place for a number of years. Very interesting and cheerful person and will recommend the right food/drinks for you. She is authentic Indian.

You must eat at Om Cafe while in Bocas! I am from Los Angeles where we have great food yet I still crave Om and wish I could go back - that's how great the food was! I highly recommend this restaurant.

Description
OM Cafe, established in 2002 offers authentic Indian cuisine in our new location over the water with a beautiful deck overlooking the ocean and with the only retractable roof in Bocas! You can also sit on our street side terrace to watch to people watch. We have an amazing selection of Indian classics such as Samosas, butter chicken, vindaloo, naan and more. We have recently added some international specialties on our menu like our famous pad Thai and our creme de la creme chicken. We offer the traditional yogurt drink called lassi and we also have an array of fantastic cocktails like our Twisted Madame, our Lotus Flower white wine sangria made with rose water. The decor, the ambiance and the location and of course the food will ensure a wonderful dining experience. The owner was born in India and raised in Toronto, Canada and has been I Bocas for over 14 years.
