Best Indian Food in a Long Time!!

How about this place then!! What a Stunner!! Even though it was Rugby night and the place was fully booked, they found room for us. As for the food and service - absolutely faultless!! Tasty and with the correct amount of heat asked for. It's easy to see why Indigo has such a high rating.

Indigo is well known for it's buzzy atmosphere and dining consistency throughout Hawke's Bay. What's less known, is how to go about being ushered upstairs for a drink after dinner. Until recently, this wasn't possible, however a new bar area has been created specifically for those of us who enjoy imbibing a local wine or international spirit or three. The... More

After reading the reviews we thought that we would try Indigo. The first night it was fully booked so we went early the next night and managed to get a table. We ordered the vegetarian platter for 2. It was very dry and all the flavours seemed the same.(Samosas, onion bhaji, vegetable pakora etc). We also ordered the Mild Lamb... More

Theres a reason why Indigo is the number 1 restaurant in Napier. Outstanding service; Gagan was very attentive and shared his wisdom on Indian culture. Besides our meal being delicious, Gagan service was a highlight of our dinner meal (sick boy). In terms of the meal we had the chicken tikka as an entree and the butter chicken and mango... More

The food was lovely - takeaway - and the restaurant was nice. But I had to say hello 3 times before the person at the counter responded with a greeting, and he also did not respond to the next customer's greeting. A very young lad seemed to be being trained - he was very rude to the staff helping him... More

Went with a colleague to Indigo when we stayed in Napier. After previous Indian meals in New Zealand, I wasn't expecting anything special. But, I was WRONG. Indigo was first class. Well presented restaurant with an extensive array of dishes to choose from. All the standard dishes were also there. However, i happen to like Shashlik dishes (i don't know... More

Was in Napier on business and decided to give Indigo a go on one of the nights i was there. The food was sensational. They have extensive menu and bar options. Ordered a Korma and it was cooked exactly as requested. I would most certainly eat here again when in Napier
