“The atmosphere is good.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

It's a nice, warm comfortable restaurant. The food is good, but the chunks of meat oversized. The waiter spilled wine all over me, and on the day, the food wasn't good, and the service was poor and when I suggested to the waiter he might throw in the price of the wine, the most he could come up with was a voucher for a take away. Which would be grand if you were living in Dungarvan. Pales into insignificance compared to the food in the Saffron Indian Restaurant in Lismore.

“No other indian will ever taste as good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

The Indian Ocean offers a nice cosy restaurant with window seats over looking the harbor. The food is delicious! I have eaten in many different Indian restaurants, nationally and internationally, and no other meal ever came close to the Indian Ocean. The portions are generous and the service is good too. As a local resident, the Indian Ocean is a treat meal! Fab food in a fab restaurant.

“Never going here again”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014 via mobile

Tried to get a table here on BH Saturday. The restaurant was very busy. The staff looked unhappy that we walked in. No eye contact and ignored for 5 mins. We know they were under pressure but they should have been honest and refused us politely instead of pretending we were invisible. We ended up walking away.
A few nights later we decided to order a take away meal. I ordered it at 8.30pm and was told it would take 40 mins. It arrived at 10.55pm. We couldn't eat the food it was so bad. Both the chicken rasalla and chicken balti might have well been the same dish. Both were an artificial tomato soup colour. The only nice part of the meal was the Corriander nan. The mixed veg starter (photo included) was deep fried broken up scaps that didn't resemble food. All this cost €35 and ended up in the bin.

“Yummy Indian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

Went here on a Monday evening at around 6pm and there was a good buzz, lots of people. Early bird on offer but we chose a few dishes from a la carte with naan and rice - (alu saag, chana masala and a vegetable madras). The Alu saag was especially yummy and madras was v good. Didn't have room for dessert but would definitely return here - very tasty food and big portions, good value for money.

“Feel the wow factor!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014 via mobile

Did you ever get excited about heading out for dinner knowing your going to an excellent meal all round? This is how I feel when I know I'm dining at this Indian. Plenty of staff always working, place is immaculate and the food is simply mouth watering. This is the queen bee of all indian restaurant. In fact typing this makes my taste buds wake up. I honestly would eat here most nights. Superb superb superb. In my opinion it should rate the 1st restaurant on Tripadvisor
