Fantastic, as always! Love the food and the servers.
Celebrating a friend’s retirement.
I hadn't had the chance to visit Coconut Lagoon in over a year. It was just as wonderful as I remembered - food, ambience, quality of how we were treated - it was all excellent! I will make sure there isn't such a long gap between this visit and my next.
We really appreciated the guidance as to what flavours worked well together. Our visit was a terrific introduction to Indian cuisine of which we are now ardent fans! Although there was quite the crowd in the dining room, it was simply wonderful to talk without competing with loud obnoxious music! Thank you for an A+++ experience!

We enjoyed another fabulous meal at Coconut Lagoon. It is, hands down, the best Indian restaurant in Ottawa. There were four of us this time so we were able to enjoy more dishes. They were all superb. There really is no bad choice here. The chef’s dish the night we were there was duck and it was amazing. So many wonderful flavors and textures. The basmati rice that comes with your meal is our perfection!!!! The service is always excellent. Attentive but not hovering. This is our favorite restaurant. It’s always a great choice for any occasion.
Very good food, tasteful, spicy, various. I highly recommend it.
Love this place! Food was fantastic! :) Service was excellent and the staff are very attentive and kind! Thanks - we'll be back!
The Coconut Lagoon never disappoints! The food is delicious and the service always good. If we have any reason to celebrate or get together with the kids it’s the restaurant we all agree on.
One of my favourite dining experiences! The food was delicious and the service was excellent.
Amazing food, helpful service. Can’t wait to go back.
Love Love Love Coconut Lagoon - the best in Ottawa for Indian Food with great vegetarian and vegan and gluten free options!! A beautiful selection of South Indian (Kerala) cuisine and excellent service. A Very warm and friendly environment. Highly recommend making a reservation.
This is a must visit place when in Ottawa. I am a long time regular and always bring friends and family here, either for dinner or the amazing buffet they offer - food flavours and selection is outstanding. I have tried everything on the menu by now and thoroughly enjoy - so many favorites!!
A must appetizer is the Tandoori Lamb Chops and Byadgi Chilli Prawns - flavour explosion. Then main dishes...
Lamb Kurma, Lamb Chettinaa, Pepper Lamb, Butter Chicken, Naddan Kohzi Curry, Beef Vindaloo, Malabar Style Biryani and must try desserts (Mango & Sago Pudding, Warm Gulab Jamun with vanilla ice cream - sweet treat) and the signature Madras Coffee.
They also have the amazing cookbook by Joe Thottungal(owner & chef) -called Coconut Lagoon - take the flavours home -just saw it in the Rachael Ray in Season magazine- WOW!! I have the book and it is fantastic!
Cannot wait to go back - enjoy.
I don’t even know what to say other then the food is outstanding. I have never been disappointed. I have people come from the Mississauga area and this is the only restaurant they want to go to. Highly recommend.
Great food, overall great place for impromptu gathering with friends
I had the fish thali platter and it wasn’t good at all. The salmon smelled fishy and the other items were either very basic or not edible. I’ve had much better indian food elsewhere (in Ottawa). I really wanted to love this restaurant but I would not go there again based on this experience.
The food is well prepared and tasty. Excellent spice level with lots of choice, including vegan and GF options. Wish rice was included as the serving size of the main isn't very big. Overall a good meal, but a bit pricey for what you get.
Great meal, except I was disappointed to find no potato in my potato and cauliflower dish.
Great as always...wonderful selection and flavours at lunch buffet.
My first visit here and definitely not the last! The food was delicious!
Always excellent! The food was delicious and service fantastic.
First time I was here for the buffet.... very good, lots of variety & choices... would highly recommend to everyone.... I often do the take-out equally good... evening meals are a challenge due to crowds & noise level, but the back room affords a More quiet environment. equally good service!... reasonable wine selection... go!.. enjoy!..
The food is delicious and the service very efficient. Prices are a little high but the food is consistently excellent. Tables are close together, however the atmosphere is always pleasant.
Exquisite dishes with truly some of the best service in town. this is undoubtedly one of Ottawa’s consistently amazing restaurants.
Great place and amazing food. Super good value for the weekend buffet. Will definitely be returning!
We had a wonderful experience despite how busy the restaurant was. Parking is a bit of an issue, but well worth it for the fantastic meal. I think that even if you enlarged the restaurant or moved to a larger location, it would still be full.
Excellent food and service every time. We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience,
The food is excellent.
The food was wonderful! The environment was simple, clean, but unfortunately lacked character imo. I also felt crammed beside everyone else, no privacy, probably because it was Valentine's day. Service was average.
It was a nice experience, but only once.
This place has an Amazing lunch buffet. You will not be disappointed.
One of the best Indian restaurants in Ottawa. They menu is interesting. In addition to a few classics (butter chicken, beef vindaloo), there are less familiar dishes such as the seared scallops, paneer makhanwala, and spicy Goan shrimp masala. Try it all!
It smelled great as soon as I walked in. I started with soup which was delicious, then had a bit of everything from the buffet. No complaints, I just wish I could have eaten more!
We chose to try Coconut Lagoon for the first time as a couples date night. We made reservations. The server was very knowledgeable and friendly and offered lots of suggestions and advice for our first experience. The food choices were very good and tasty. We would definitely go back. My only negative was feeling extremely rushed the entire time. If you are looking for an opportunity to lay back and relax and enjoy your food with the company of great friends, I would not choose Coconut Lagoon. Though I can appreciate reservations are hard to manage, but in and out in under 90minutes with drinks, appetizers, full 4 dishes to share meal and dessert. Just rushed all around. Thank goodness we didn’t have coffee or another round of drinks.
Fantastic menu, lots of options including their infamous Thali menu, which we had. Biryani was great and everything was just the right amount of spice - not too tame. We adore their pathora (bread) and all tje flaky layers. It did take a bit for service but they were busy.
It took a good 15 minutes before we were served, but once we got served, the service was excellent. Waiter, Joseph made great recommendations. Food was outstanding. I would recommend that the web page makes mention of he lack of parking. We will be back for sure
Worth the 40 minute drive.
Outstanding food with incredible flavours! The only one of its kind in the Ottawa area. Always perfect!
I have been going to Coconut Lagoon with colleagues for some time now, and always enjoying lunch.
An excellent buffet with plenty of vegetarian and vegan options.
Parking is challenge at lunch time. Joe's team is always friendly! We will definitely be back!
Beautiful venue, excellent food and service. Buffet lunch was delicious, unique and plentiful. Thank you.
Awesome lay out. Service was excellent and the food, the best I've ever had.
It was a great experience.
As always dependable service and consistently good food!
