Very friendly restaurant

Nice atmosphere and the owner and staff make time for all their customers remembering lots by name, a nice touch. Onion Bhajis are lovely, Mushroom pilau really nice, will make this a regular place to eat.

We all went out for a holiday treat with my visiting inlaws. We decided to try Indigo and we were not disappointed. The decor is modern and clean. The staff were very welcoming without being over the top. We all enjoyed our food which was presented well and tasted fresh clean and perfectly spiced. Will be returning. Loved the relaxed... More

Small little restaurant in contrast to the many others that sit along the road. But this one punches way above it's weight. Welcomed politely by the attentive staff that work here. They portrayed the same level of friendliness and professionalism to all of the customers that came through the door. The atmosphere was also emphasised on the relaxing and comfortable... More

I used to come here all the time before it closed for refurbishment and always had excellent fast and friendly service plus great tasting food. This is mine and my friends first time back since it reopened. The food was excellent again but the length of time between starter and main course was over 20mins. When the main course did... More

Came up north to celebrate our grandsons 10th birthday. He chose an Indian meal. Arrived at Indigo, on the " curry mile" in South Shields without having booked a table. There were 5 of us. We were warmly welcomed and a table was found for us. Brilliant staff, couldn't have bettered their attitude. Food was excellent, great portions, well presented.... More

Shields is not spoilt for choice when it comes to Indian cuisine. In 2015 You can trace the history of takeaway food on Ocean Road from multi coloured rice to monotone coloured mains (yellow / orange and brown ) to those fab desserts. You know the ones - pictures of lemon sorbet served in the lemon Itself. The Indigo is... More
