“The service and food was amazing!”
Reviewed March 30, 2014 via mobile

Our first day was a bit rough. We were learning to drive on the other side of the road and the place we are staying wasn't the best. As soon as we got there our day turned around! It was the best service I have ever had at a restaurant. They were polite and friendly and the manager even came over and told us where the best beach was. They really wanted to make it a good experience. You could tell they were passionate about Indian food and really cared about the costumer. We felt at home. The food was also superb! We will be back.

Dear Virginia,

Thanks for your review. We actually used to serve bubbly by glass before, but we found out that it didn't sell well and the bubbles do not last long. Hence, we decided not to. We always look forward to feedbacks so that we can alter to improve our offers.

We appreciate your comments.

Warm regards,
Chef Adil.

“Great service, Good food”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

The service was great, in fact one of the best we've had. So why the 4 rating. Well the food wasn't in line with a 5 star in my mind. Close but not what I expected for all the hype and being the #1 rated in St. Lucia. The prices are not great either. Well more accurately I should say they nickel and dime you to death. At every other indian restaurant I've ever been too, rice was included with the meal. Yes you may have to pay for a second plate of rice but never the first. And also not $4.50US for each plate of rice. Stuff like that adds up pretty quick.

Dear Happycow,

Thanks for the feedback. Four stars after a very long time.I am pleased to know that you enjoyed the food and service at SOI. Sorry about the price of the rice though. It is literally impossible to include the price of rice (Basmati) in the mains. Everything is imported on the island and it becomes very expensive due to the duties involved and is beyond our control.

I am glad that you enjoyed the food and service though, which is in our control.

Looking forward to seeing you again.

Warm regards,
Chef Adil.

“Yum Yum!!!”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

What a fab restaurant. My mum, sister and I went there recently. Being Indian, living in London and being used to fabulous home cooked punjabi food we were a little apprehensive about trying Indian food in St Lucia. We needn't have worried as the food was truy authentic, spicy and delicious.The owner was charming and extremely hospitable as were the rest of the team. What a find! Well done!

Dear Kavita,

It is always an honour to serve SOI Indian cuisine to Indians and get good feedback from them. My chefs are from India and we have always prepared Indian cuisine just like it is done back at home in India with a very clean and fresh approach. Thanks for taking time to write this review.

Warm regards,
Chef Adil

“AMAZING!!!”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

Never having tried Indian food before we took a chance and made a reservation here on our first night on the island.

Everything was PERFECT.

The staff is amazing. Truly passionate people who take pride in what they do.

The food - AMAZING. I'm afraid we may never find Indian food as good ever again!

The owner came over and asked how our meal was...great guy, down to earth and has a real passion for what he does.

5 Star establishment all the way -- absolutely nothing bad to say about our experience.

We loved it so much we went back a few days later for lunch which was equally as good.

A must try for all -- even if you have never had Indian food before -- you will be pleasantly surprised.
