Little place towards the end of town, you can soon find it by homing in on the Indian spice smells coming from its kitchen. Suprising also is that it dabbles in Thai cuisine with a passable Pad Thai on the menu.

We loved our meal here; the flavours, food choices and atmosphere. It was understaffed on a busy night but the meals came out within half an hour or forty five minute. We were impressed with the efficiency and kindness of the waiter and waitress. It...More

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.
