Wide ranging, authentic menu with plenty of choice for vegetarians. We've been coming here for years and it's probably my favourite restaurant in Inverness. Service has always been great.

Very disappointed! Have used Indian Ocean many times before, both for takeaways and sit in and even recommended to others. Ordered a takeaway of varied dishes but was let down on this occasion. The Tarka Dal tasted of fish, I had some at first and before I could say anything my partner was at the sink spitting it out. Being... More

We were looking for indian cuisine restaurants and finally we found this place in inverness town near north loch ness. We ordered Chicken Handi; Chicken Tikka Masala; Naan and Rice. It was generous quantity and we were full after having so much of food. Place is little small as we were on waiting list for 20 mins. which we usually... More

We had dinner with friends here on Saturday night and the food was lovely but the way we were treated by staff was awful! On entering the restaurant the waiter at the bar pointed to a table and said just sit over there. Eventually a waiter came over to the table and threw some menus on the middle of the... More

Authentic Indian food. Extensive menu. At lunch, the Executive's choices on the back of the menu seem to be the best value at under £10.

Food was beautiful. Quite pricey though. Service was absolutely appalling. Menus chucked on table, cutlery chucked down aswell, told to order food before drinks. Food arrived in dribs and drabs. Drinks took 15 mins to arrive. After paying bill we had to ask for change 10mins later.

Decent food but very pricey! We ordered Mix Veg, Paneer dish and few naan breads. It isn't the most authentic Indian food I'd say. Overpriced for sure for the quantity provided.

Whilst visiting Inverness we popped in here for lunch, was really looking forward to it as have visited here for the past 3 years when we visit family but on this occasion the food was just not up to its usual standard, sauces were a bit tasteless and watery and it seemed as if they were warmed up in the...

We ordered a few chicken and vegetarian dishes. The service was good but the food was really bad. The curries were not cooked fresh and the food tasted stale. None of the dishes were even average except for Palak Paneer which was made well. Absolutely avoid this restaurant if you want to eat Indian food.

We wanted somewhere to eat before heading off on the Sleeper to London. This restaurant is a short walk from the railway station and was chosen entirely because of this - but we were really pleased! The food was nice, best peshwari naan that I have had in a very long time, and portions were plentiful. Service was very friendly.
