Every time we come to Bocas we make sure to eat at Om Cafe at least once. It's always the best meal we have while we're here. So good!! The staff is great too. I could eat here every night!:)

Surprisingly good Indian style food reasonably priced for Panama. My wife had the butter chicken and I had the five spices chicken, not really an authentic Indian dish, but very good.

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful dinner at Ohm restaurant. I had the butter chicken, my girlfriend had the red coconut seafood curry, delicious. Service was very friendly, and a lovely atmosphere. We would highly recommend it. Best meal we had on the island.

After many days of rice and beans, I was ready for something different. Of course, the curries at Om were perfect. Overall dinner was a bit more expensive that other places on the island, but tasty, filling with friendly service and a nice atmosphere.

It's hard to get a spicy meal in Panama but Om delivers. We had the fish vindaloo, shrimp tikka, chicken korma, and butter chicken. All were juicy and flavorful. The presentation is wonderful as well and you can't beat the beautiful waterfront seating.

The food is good. Lots of yummy flavors and a nice change from typical local food. The service isn't the best, they did mess up the order but fixed it as soon as they could. The lamb appetizer is amazing.

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.
