    Coconut Lagoon left us with mixed feelings after our recent visit. While we had hoped for an exceptional dining experience, the reality fell short of our expectations. To start with, the overall experience was mediocre at best. Upon arrival, we were greeted by a host who could have been more welcoming. Despite having made a reservation, we were made to wait for an unreasonably long time—30 to 45 minutes—for our main course to arrive. This prolonged wait only added to our disappointment. Moreover, halfway through our meal, the restaurant turned off the music on the patio, dampening the vibrant ambiance that initially drew us in. When the food finally did arrive, it was a mixed bag. While the crab samosas stood out as a brilliant highlight, offering a burst of flavor with every bite, other dishes failed to impress. The Kerala parottas were excessively oily, leaving a lingering taste that suggested the oil was not fresh. The rib beef and lamb biryani, while decent, lacked the unique flair we had hoped for. Considering the price we paid, we expected more in terms of both taste and portion size. Which brings us to the most glaring issue: the price point. We were shocked to discover the exorbitant prices attached to the dishes. Each parotta was priced at $4, which seemed excessive given the quality. The biryani, priced at a staggering $38, arrived in a tiffin box that resembled something meant for a kindergarten child's salad. The portion size was woefully inadequate for the price, leaving us feeling shortchanged. We tried to justify the cost with the taste, but even that fell short of our expectations. In conclusion, Coconut Lagoon failed to deliver on multiple fronts. From the late food to the unfriendly service and unjustifiable prices, our experience left much to be desired. While there were moments of brilliance, they were overshadowed by the overall disappointment. We won't be rushing back anytime soon.

    Excellent all around! Our table shared a variety of plates and they were all very tasty. We had the KFC appetizer and it was the amazing - like a burst of flavours in your mouth. It was my second time at Coconut Lagoon and it sure didn't disappoint. Highly recommended.

    Food was delicious, service was very courteous but a bit slow. Restaurant ambience is nice but we chose the patio seating which has a fair amount of road noise. Overall a lovely evening.

    Service is excellent. This restaurant is more expensive than most, but the quality of the food and the attention you receive will make it a very pleasant dining experience you will not get anywhere else.
