We were part of a group of 8 people, the service was great no one had to wait long for their food to arrive. The food was lovely and reasonably priced. We had a great night at the Indian Ocean.
We ate here last week and loved it. The food was excellent, the service was fantastic and the restaurant was clean and vibrant, lovely toilets, a brilliant experience and a and only 3 minutes walk from our hotel. Would totally recommend a visit to this place if you are in Bournemouth.
Wonderful menu choice and meal, surroundings and first class service. Would recommend without any hesitation. Many thanks and will return in the future. Thank you !
Very good, tasty food (I would recommend the masala dishes), excellent staff we did not feel rushed throughout the meal. The restaurant is perfectly located. When in the area we will return.
We booked a table for 5.00pm as we were going to a concert. Although only just opened for the evening everyone was friendly and attentive. The food was delicious and as a result we ordered rather too much. But we were offered what we couldn't manage in a doggy bag! Fantastic - we had seconds later on!
Lovely food and great service , worth going to Indian Ocean staff very friendly . We alll had a lovely time , place is clean and tidy .
We received a warm welcome, the starters and mains were cooked perfectly and were very tasty, and we were served by friendly and helpful waiters. The only minus was the choice of desserts which was so uninteresting we gave it a miss, otherwise we would have chosen one and therefore spent more.
The food was very good and a great atmosphere as well however they were very busy which unfortunately caused a few mistakes such as forgetting to bring glasses for water, putting chilantro in our food even though we requested it without and so on. All in all a good experience and I would recommend the place.
Very nice and particularly good Vegetarian Masala cooked without potatoes on request. Only slight criticism could be that the service was a little slow although the restaurant was busy (always a good sign). Nice atmosphere and friendly staff.
Visited the Indian Ocean restaurant to eat before a show at the nearby BIC. Don't be put off by slightly tatty exterior as the food and service were really good. Would visit again and recommend highly.
