Last night we went for dinner at OM Cafe. The food actually was delicious but the service was awful. We waited 20mins to be asked for our drinks order. I helped myself to the menus as no one gave us any. They forgot the popodums til the end of the meal and forgot completely half of my dish. The guy... More

This was my best meal in bocas. I was a little hesitant and I wanted to stick to local flavor but this was amazing. Love northern Indian food and this place is fire. I got the spicy fish and the takkiI shrimp. The fish was cooked perfectly and the spice was lovely, although closer to mild curry than a spicy.... More

What a wonderful place to eat in Bocas del Toro Authentic food and a wonderful atmosphere, the owner is a really lovely person and I can't thank her enough. If you visit Bocas, make sure you don't miss this place.

Interesting, well made food. i'm a rookie with very few experiences with indian restaurants, and they weren't great. But Om does a great job and everything i saw or tried was tasty, even if i had no idea what the heck it was. If you're averse to spicy, talk with the waitress, because certain items pack a wallop, which was... More

Bar none the best Indian food I've ever had! The service was stellar and the portions very fair. Loads of cocktail choices, but I'd suggested going for the passion fruit cocktail (maracuya maravilla), made from homebrewed passion fruit alcohol.

Food was very tasty and staff was so kind! The place is close to the sea. A great spot for beers and food during the sunset. I would definitely come back there!

We had An excellent meal at Om . We had the curry chicken and butter chicken and they were both delicious. It is an opened restaurant on the water so I got some insect bites but I should have expected that and brought insect spray with me. It was a lovely evening despite this.

The most amazing food i've had in a long long time! The vegetarian choice I made was probably the best vegetarian food i've eaten ever. Everyone was as happy as I was with their food and we were a group of about 7-8 people. We had to wait some time for the food but when the food taste like this,... More

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.
