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

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
