We regularly use Indian Ocean, and never disappoints. The food is always fresh and full of favour. The service is always great too. Give these guys a go. You will not be disappointed. A right little gem on the outskirts of Ipswich.

I visit the Indian Ocean regularly with a group of friends. We also dine at other Indian restaurants in the Ipswich area, but usually end up back here. It's all about the food. I wouldn't go here specifically for the decor, which has something of the bland "Dentist's waiting room" about it, and especially not for the strange blue lighting,... More

We visited the Indian Ocean for a nice sit in meal as we usually have take-aways from there. The inside is clean, atmospheric and it's a very calm and peaceful restaurant to eat in. The service was quick and efficient, and the staff were lovely and very friendly. The food, as always, was incredible! Nothing there can be faulted and... More

We had a meal from Indian Ocean recently and it was excellent. It was a little expensive compared with some places but the service and the quality of the food was fantastic. I would recommend it!

Set in a rather utilitarian side street, this place has friendly staff, a good but not wildly original menu but very good service and excellent food. I have very rarely been disappointed and when something has fallen short of my expectations, the restaurant has always offered an acceptable remedy. Highly recommended!

Found this small restaurant on google search on a recent visit to Ipswich. We found the place the day before and booked by phone for the night of our choice. The restaurant is small with only 6 tables, but the tablecloths and napkins were spotless, as was the whole place. Service was quick and polite and the food was excellent.... More
