We never compromise on quality and offer a range of traditional and unique dishes, constantly offering our guests new experiences and tastes.

All dishes are cooked from scratch specifically to your order. The Drinks Menu Indigo offers the largest selection of Hawke's Bay wine in the region and is proud to offer one of the broadest selections of gin, vodka, rum and bourbons. What are you famous for?

On a passing trip through Napier we decided to go to Indigo. Pleasantly surprised by the quality of the establishment, staff, and food. The restaurant was not noisy even though they were busy and wait time on food was short. Great whiskey selection if that's your thing.

Average priced menu, with lots of tasty choices. You must book during holiday periods as it is popular, and one of the best Napier City eateries on offer.

We did order a take away from there, the quantity they served in one portion was little for the price we paid. Taste of the foods were mediocre as we had expected something really delicious by the looking the review that restaurant had.

Indigo is a nice change from the NZ European food on offer in most places. Nice friendly staff who will explain the extensive menu. The portions are plentiful and the food is really tasty. We had ample with two starters and a shared main. A good choice situated in the heart of Napier.

Four of us went to Indigo Indian Restaurant. The food was good but not as good as we had hoped for and heard about. Don't get me wrong, it was nice but we were expecting something more. But, the service was outstanding!!! It was probably the best I've ever experienced. Excellent thanks you guys.

I thought I had left my sunglasses there and the next morning I went to the restaurant (we were moving on that morning) there was a painter and decorated there but the restaurant was closed, the p & d said we could look round but we could...

Once again Indigo didn't disappoint! My mum was in New Zealand for a holiday and we took her to Indigo a 2nd time around. She has been to this restaurant last March 2015. She really enjoyed it, hence another visit. We also invited a few friends with us in this visit. I think it was their first time to try... More

We ordered an entree paneer mint tawa for our daughter, with mains of vege manchurian and acchadi prawns for ourselves. Accompanied this with a Linden Estate non-alcoholic sparkling Sauvignon (as we... More
