We ordered a takeaway for the first time from the Indian Ocean and it was the worst Indian meal I have ever tasted. Please don't waste your money going to eat in this restaurant. I would rather starve 🤢

Visited the Indian Ocean on a Sunday lunchtime and selected dishes from their lunchtime special menu with two courses for £9.95. The food was served speedily and was excellent in value for money and quality.

We visited this restaurant on a Monday evening we were made to feel most welcome and relaxed. The food was lovely but not amazing. The staff were really nice and the decor of the place in typical Indian style. We had a most enjoyable evening

Food tasted good. Didn't leave hungry. It was quite pricey though. $80AUD/46 pounds. Got off on the wrong foot with server when I only wanted water when offered beer and wine. Another odd thing was being given the bill directly after receiving mains, fair enough...More

I love Indian food. I love the different regions with their special dishes but not from the Indian Ocean area. The restaurant was central and I found it while wandering around as my first 2 choices for dinner were booked. The restaurant was pleasing to...More
