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.

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

Food was beautiful. Butter chicken was one of the best I've had. The rice was cooked perfectly also. The tandoori prawns were amazing also. Service was nice and paced with food coming out relaxed between starters and mains not feeling rushed.

My husband and I went for our wedding anniversary. The decor looked Athentic and we were showed to a table straight away. We ordered a drink and water was bought over. We ordered the bread basket (we selected 3 breads) but requested this be served with the mains, us had a entree. For main I had the mango chicken - this is one of the best I have had, it was served was rice and a small salad. We were to full for desert, A very enjoyable meal - the service throughout was great and we will back.
