If you like Maroli in Toronto..then you will like the Coconut Lagoon in Ottawa.
We went on Saturday nite to find out that it was just about packed. There is a reason its packed..coz its DELICIOUS ((and different).
The cuisine is from a province in Southern India...so there is an emphasis on Seafood.
So we started off with a shrimp appetizer followed by a mussel appetizer.
The shrimp was red red red from the spices and hot hot hot..but I loved it.
The mussels were in a coconut cream sauce full of spices that we also loved.
Then we ordered a mango lassi that was probably the best mango lassi I have ever had.
For the main course, we split at vegetarian thali.
The service was outstanding too.
Worth the drive to the east end (in the event you are staying at a hotel downtown or live in the west end).
