There are Indian restaurants and pseudo Indian. The Ocean is definitely a real Indian restaurant with, as an addition, great service. Don’t be put off by the slightly modern, unIndian, décor. I think it is great that the usual flock wallpaper is missing. Getting onto the food. The chef will put himself out to make sure you get what you want. Ask for more spice in your food at it is there, however that then takes away the real Indian feel. The chef knows what he is doing.
If you are in the area then definitely give it a try. Disappointed, you won’t be.

It was a very quiet Sunday evening and was easy to get a table, the food was all correct and nice. I think drinks are very expensive and normally you get offered a free one - the only negative is that before I ordered anything I said it will £20 each, I didn’t order much (only a dish and Naan bread) two popodoms and small drink, others were similar but bit more and the bill came to £20 each. I am suspicious of the bill as you can’t fully read it. Wouldn’t put me off but could be a welcome change from management straight away.
