This lively Indian restaurant has been serving delicious house made curries and Indian comfort foods since 2006. Indian Ocean’s contemporary setting and authentic cuisine has seen it ranked as one of the best local eateries on Google and TripAdvisor.

The décor sets the scene in this cosy restaurant with Indian art, iconography and furnishings. Be welcomed with warm and friendly service while the chefs create delicious specialities from every corner of India. Favourites include a mixed tandoori platter, prawn coconut curry, chicken dishes and goat saagwla, all made with authentic spices and recipes. Curries are typically made with their traditional levels of spiciness, but staff are more than happy to advise if you’re looking for something
extra mild – or super hot! It’s all served up alongside fluffy basmati rice and a selection of soft naan breads and tasty side dishes.

We serve Halal Meats, Have separate Vegan menu.

Indian Ocean is a fully licensed premises.

We chose this restaurant because it advertised vegan friendly, and we where amazed when they had a separate vegan menu.

The food was brought to us very quickly and the vegetable Korma and Aloo Gobi was some of the best found in Christchurch.

I will be looking forward to revisiting next time I am in Ferrymead!

In stepping into Indian Ocean we could have been transported to India itself! The fitout is superbly simple but authentic and there’s nothing else like it in Ferrymead. From a large choice of entrees we started with the mixed platter - sizzling as it came to our table it was delicious. Curries top notch and authentic, service unobtrusive but attentive...we will return!

The sharing platter we chose (2people) was as good as any other we have tasted elsewhere. Everything was fresh and well cooked. The presentation of the meal was nice and the staff are super friendly.
The only negative, which is not a major one, is that on the night we chose there are a lot of take-out meals. This means a steady door banging as customers go in and out.
We sat out in the porch which is a great environment. The staff kindly turned on the heating for us as it was getting chilly

Tried the Mix Platter for 2 starter - nice to try but yet found anywhere that has better Onion Bhaji than Delly Belly in City Centre. The chicken and kebabs were nice. Personally I wasn't keen on the samosas but my husband said they were like a pasty and he thought they were ok. Whole point about the platter is to try things which we achieved. I had the chicken madras - medium to hot and it was really nice. Garlic nan was nice and crisp but still pliable so you can put your rice and sauce on top. Husband ordered Chicken Bhoona which was also very nice. I might try that next time. Would recommend and would go again. Brought home take a way menu !

great food as always - second time there and both times with not so much indian food fans they loved it - The vindaloo has both times been the star of the meal - Hint if you go through first table and get the set meun ($40)it works out to be a heap cheaper than buying individual
