New Indian Restaurant Opens in Centreville

Indian Ocean specializes in Goan seafood and North Indian cuisine.

A new Indian restaurant recently opened at 5639 Stone Road in the Village Center shopping plaza.

Indian Ocean specializes in Goan seafood and North Indian cuisine. The restaurant owner said he is emphasizing nutritional food in a traditional Indian style, and purchases many ingredients locally. 

“The style of cooking we have is Ayurvedic. The ingrediants are local, farmers’ market vegetables," said owner Raj Kapoor. "We use mostly organic vegetables and we go three times a week to the farmers’ market."

Kapoor relocated Indian Ocean to its current space in Centreville at the end of June. Previously, there were two restaurants open: one in Fairfax and one in Washington, D.C. Kapoor, a Hindu Indian who grew up in Afghanistan, said he wanted to work closer to his home in Manassas Park, where he's lived since 1988. 

Kapoor has been in the restaurant business since 1991, when he opened a restaurant, Viva Italiano, in Springfield. He first opened an Indian Ocean location in Fairfax about eight years ago, followed by a location in D.C. two years later.
