Really enjoyed the meal here, i know it's an Indian and the curry was decent, but the Red Thai Curry was really good. Cocktails were pretty good too

Again another restaurant trying to get as much business as possible by claiming to be something they are not. This is not a vegan restaurant and barely passes as a restaurant serving Indian food. There was one vegan dish offered on the menu. The chef needs to be told that a curry is a blended sauce. You do not simply... More

If you like noodles with peanut butter order the pad thai. That's what it is. Like most restaurants on the water they let the view talk for them, the food however here for me, well, nothing was very good

I've mixed feelings about this place. The curry was pretty good but the portion size was too small. Also what they call a naan is really a chipati. You need to get more food for the money.

The food was good, a little on the expensive side for what you get. I do not recommend the lamb shish kabob as it was not what we expected. It was not chunks of lamb, but rather ground lamb.

We very much enjoyed our dinner at Om Cafe. The location is really nice and atmospheric, with a terrace over the water, fairy lights, lots of paintings on the wooden structure of the house - you really feel yourself transported to India or Sri Lanka... So a welcome change of scenery in Bocas town - just remember your are on... More

This place offers a range of Indian and Thai food :) it is slightly more expensive but pretty good! The place is right on the water and open during the week but not on the weekend.

We really enjoyed our evening at Om. Friendly, fun atmosphere and delicious food. I had the butter paneer and enjoyed it! Situated right on the water, it was a beautiful spot to watch a powerful evening thunderstorm roll through.

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.
