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.

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.

Fantastic night. The food was excellent. Service great, ambiance perfect couldn’t have asked for a better night. We are a family of four two young boys who also enjoyed the evening. I am now going to Zomato to place a review with a recommendation to visit Indian Ocean. Been coming here for a couple of years now and after living in London and being spoilt by choices of Indian restaurants this is probably the best in Christchurch. Thank Indian Ocean

Wow amazing. Fantastic atmosphere...felt like I was actually in India. Server was very professional and attentive. We love butter chicken sauce but we are vegetarians so they custom made our orders. The best Indian food I have ever had. And the place was full too. Thank you

Food was great. Fluffy naan, fluffy rice and tasty curries! We had mango chicken and the lamb shank. They were both really good except one thing the lamb shank wasn't as tender as expected. The chocolate naan was really good too! Overall a great experience!

After recently going to India, our food expectations have increased but Indian Ocean certainly delivered! The food was such good value and absolutely delicious. The atmosphere was nice, not too busy, nice indian themed music and nice and warm considering the miserable weather. Food came out quickly and waiter was great! Think this will be our new local for indian food!!
