We hadn’t booked and were told on arrival that the restaurant was quite busy so might have to wait.

We were given free poppadoms and our food actually came quite quickly.

Attentive, friendly staff and very reasonably priced.

I live in East London and finding myself in Scotland (Inverness) for a few days I needed my curry fix.

I read a lot of reviews for curry houses in Inverness and it didn’t look good, but I chose Indian Ocean because the menu looked interesting.

I need not have been worried.

We were there early after opening and it was empty. Three staff, all polite, and friendly, especially a the young lad.

Popadoms and pickles to start. With wine for her and Cobra for me. Good stuff although popadoms were quite large and we probably didn’t need 4.

Then we shared Lamb Madras, Chicken Garlic chilli Masalam, Sag Aloo and some rice.
The garlic dish was v garlicky, nice flavours and heat. Very good. The Lamb Madras was just perfect for me. Hot and flavoursome and just enough texture in the meat.

If this place was local to me (there are 50+ Indian/Bangladeshi places within a mile) it would do v well.

Only problem is I ate too much, so was thankful of a long walk back to our hotel!

Chosen by chance from the hotel local guide. Very enjoyable Scottish style Indian!
Extensive menu.
Attentive staff but not over the top;
Most of my fellow diners seemed to be enjoying themselves also.

We decided to avoid the potential Friday night rush by dining early so the place was quiet as we'd hoped. The Staff were friendly and welcoming and we were seated straight away. I had the Lamb Bhuna and my husband had the Special Tandoori Chicken with cashews. He said it was the best Indian meal he's had in a long time. Starters, mains and a bottle of wine for £40 was good value in our opinion and we would certainly dine here again when visiting Inverness which we do a few times a year.
