If you like hindi food this is the place for you! Cozy and moody restaurant setting the right mood for a special dinner. Its a little bit expensive compared to other restaurants in the area but you are paying for unique dishes and big servings.

Real tasty Indian style cuisine. Try a assortment appetizer served with raita and different chutneys. Lotus sangria was a good aperitif drink, but the highlight of the meal was absolutely delicious Kulfi ice cream. Service was very friendly, English, French, and Spanish languages spoken

The food here was amazing, probably my favorite meal in town. The service was laidback but good. We had drinks, appetizers, and a meal; the prices were decent. They are able to accommodate vegetarian diets.

OM Cafe, established in 2002 offers authentic Indian cuisine in our new location over the water with a beautiful deck overlooking the ocean and with the only retractable roof in Bocas! You can also sit on our street side terrace to watch to people watch. We have an amazing selection of Indian classics such as Samosas, butter chicken, vindaloo, naan and more. We have recently added some international specialties on our menu like our famous pad Thai and our creme de la creme chicken. We offer the traditional yogurt drink called lassi and we also have an array of fantastic cocktails like our Twisted Madame, our Lotus Flower white wine sangria made with rose water. The decor, the ambiance and the location and of course the food will ensure a wonderful dining experience. The owner was born in India and raised in Toronto, Canada and has been I Bocas for over 14 years.
