Cafe Om - Restaurant Bocas del Toro - Panama

Service is not particularly swift or attentive at this rickety-rackety, fairy-lit wooden restaurant. However, Café Om does have a certain charm, and you may well be enticed in by the deliciously spicy aromas that emanate from this incongruous, but authentic little Indian eatery in Bocas centre.

In the evenings CafĂ© Om offers a selection of typical Indian appetizers such as pakoras and samosas ($4.50 – 5.50), followed by a variety of styles of curries (vegetarian, chicken, fish or shrimp – $4.50 - 10), all served with rice, naan, and dhal (lentils). If you’re really hungry, though, one of the giant roti wraps ($5 – 8.50) or thalis (mixed plates) might be a better choice and better value.

The café is not open for lunch (nor on Wednesdays), but in the mornings it offers a variety of Western and Indian breakfasts, from omelettes, pancakes and bagels to spicy scrambled eggs and breakfast roti wraps ($3.50 - 7).

Beers, wines and spirits are available, but the fresh juices and lassis ($2.50-3) are appealing and refreshing alternatives to the alcoholic choices.
