Anyone who knows the area will be aware that there are literally dozens of restaurants to choose from - predominantly Asian. We have tried a number of others in the past but always return to Indigo as the staff are friendly and welcoming. This was a special occasion (our grand-daughter's eleventh birthday) and it was her choice to go there... More

We went here for a Friday night curry on South Shield's famous Ocean Road. We are not local, so we walked along and checked restaurants out as we went. Indigo looked nice, and had a very reasonable set menu. The food was super (lovely tasy curries, delicious light naans and the chip were some of the best I have eaten),... More

Regular at this restaurant and we are never disappointed, always consistently nice. You can't fault this Indian restaurant for quality and friendly service, modern layout and comfortable. All in all a top notch Indian for a meal out :)

Arrived at 7.55 at the restaurant, giving my details to one of the waiters which looked very shocked then called manager over, no booking in diary. I then showed the manager my booking... More

I've been many times and every starter I've had has been delicious, but they do have the best lamb tikka ever! Friendly staff are on hand to help with any questions you have about their dishes. Lovely curries with plenty of taste in a friendly and comfortable environment.

Great welcome from the staff and service was excellent. Food was nicely presented and tasted as good. Very reasonable and the comfort of the restaurant is first class. Spotlessly clean and comfortable seating. We will definitely be back.
