Great Indian Food

Great food and not too expensive for a restaurant in a hotel. If weather not too hot the verandah is a lovely place to eat.

We have eaten frequently at the Beach Rotana for the seven years we have lived in Abu Dhabi. This time we decided on Indigo. The manager herself took our order. Her attitude changed when we said no to the 6 course tasting menu. It got worse when we ordered the cheapest wine on the list (we did so because we... More

There wasn't one bite that wasn't sublime and the service was equally superb. We had the prix fixe dinner, 5 courses (choices of Vegetarian, Protein, and Seafood--I chose the Protein and my co-worker had the Vegetarian), and ate like Kings. Again, I can't compliment the Service enough. Just right--elegant and classy.

First class service. Amazing food. Staff were very professional and excellent customer service. The mixed starters tasted fantastic. Sikandari lamb was tasty and very filling. Lamb bhuna and biryani was also very nice. Mango lassi was the best I had made from fresh mango. Amazing experience the minute you walk in the door from staff parking our car to the... More

Everything at Indigo was exceptional from the decor to the food. Their service was top. Tried an indian cocktail and it was fantastic. Both the chef and the manager came to our table. Tried two types of naan and it was exquisite.

I wasn't expecting much when a friend invited me to Inidgo but I must say, I was pleasantly surprised. The food, the service, and all around quality were impeccable. I loved everything about the experience as a whole. Best Biryani and Butter chicken I've ever had the pleasure of tasting. Highly recommended!!!
