We had An excellent meal at Om . We had the curry chicken and butter chicken and they were both delicious. It is an opened restaurant on the water so I got some insect bites but I should have expected that and brought insect spray with me. It was a lovely evening despite this.

Everyone was as happy as I was with their food and we were a group of about 7-8 people. We had to wait some time for the food but when the food taste like this,... More

My wife and I had a bottle of wine the mixed starter and shared a buttered chicken. The wine took a little long to arrive at the table.

We had a fantastic dinner here last night. The food was great and the spirit in the restaurant was amazing. We sat on benches with pillows (real tables are available) and enjoyed some strolling minstrels. My teenagers loved it. Vegan food options. Prices were reasonable. Would certainly come back again. Thank you for a lovely evening.

We love indian food no matter where we are and this place was no exception. The butter chicken and the curry were both amazing. They had live music the second time we went and really enjoyed ourselves. The atmosphere is very cool and the restaurant sits out over the water. The service was always good, and the food even better!

Description
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.
