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!!!

We have visited before but this was our first Saturday brunch here. It was excellent. The concept of ordering of a set menu works very well as you do not have to leave your table to get food so the conversation continues and flows. The food was delicious, the service was acceptable and it was very enjoyable. The portions are... More

My wife and I enjoyed dinner at Indigo. Food is spicy but not overly so. Generous portions both for our starter( Chicken Soup) and mains( Lamb Curry). Attentive but not intrusive service. We did not have room for a dessert.
