Nestled at the heart of the Tameside area of Manchester, award winning Asian restaurant Indian Ocean has been delighting curry-lovers ever since its inception in 1993. The spacious, family friendly eatery has managed to marry the Indian and Pakistani cuisines to perfection and has long been recognised as one of the UK’s top ten restaurants, with chefs that perfectly understand the local taste buds and strive to meet the high standards that they set themselves every single day.
The kitchen team has been developed by combining the best local Indian chefs with some of the most talented from the Indian subcontinent, and this is clearly represented in the creation of a fabulously authentic and delectable menu that offers the best and most unique flavours and spices that the area has to offer.
There is so much on Indian Ocean's menu to choose from, it almost seems prudent to have a game plan in mind before visiting. Even the starters list will leave a diner toiling, with a multitude of possibilities that include a host of tandoori platters, the classic onion bhaji, and their twist on a prawn cocktail. These are nothing compared to the mains, which will leave even the hardened curry fan wrinkling their brow and taking a second look to ponder more over what to chosse. With choices that range from the traditional – in the form of the Madras and to the Vindaloo – to the house specials – which include a Jalfrezi, a Tikka Masala, and the super-hot Afghani. Not into Asian food? That’s no problem, as Indian Ocean also provide a selection of continental dishes, including tempting steak options and a succulent plate of sea bass.
The Indian Ocean philosophy is to mix the highest quality ingredients with perfect service and a welcoming atmosphere – and that couldn’t be more true – with an ambience that is ideal for any celebration.
