Outstanding

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.

We've missed Indigo over the last few months it's been shut. The new refit looks great and the layout is better. Since reopening, there are some new staff but Islam (the owner) is still there. Excellent service from Islam and his staff - the food is even better than before; with a revised menu. We have always been a fan... More

First visit here but not really impressed. Waited ages for our starters, then we waited ages again for our mains. Not sure why as the restaurant was not really that busy. Scallop starter was ok but my vindaloo main was below average. Restaurant was also very cold due to the air con being on to cold a setting. Staff were... More

So pleased this restaurant has re-opened after refurbishment. Meals and service were brilliant even though they are still sourcing more staff.

A party of 8 of us visited this restaurant on 19/08/14 and each and everyone one of us were very impressed with the fabulous food served. We all chose the weekday specials, 3 courses for £6.95/£7.95 and the portion sizes were fantastic. We added extras of chips and a variety of naan breads and including drinks our bill was only...

The chicken tikka massalla main from Indigo is the outright nicest curry I have ever tasted! If that's not reason enough to come to this fine restaurant, the service was quick and efficient, yet friendly and they threw in a free drink of my choice and a couple of extras with the main! 10/10 keep it up!
