“.. a truly fine restaurant...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

was my second time there and will certainly not be the last.

in Abu Dhabi there are two indians that rank tops in my book - Indigo and Ushna. yes these are somewhat expensive and yes there is quality indian in Abu Dhabi at lower prices. but Indigo and Ushna are true dining experiences.

had a mixed grill, spinach & mutton, black daal and fish pakora. all with unique tastes, unique to Indigo. am having left overs as we speak...i am able to sense the many taste sensations running thru my mouth (as i am drinking water and no beers). actually indian is best eaten accompanied only by water.

altho it is now starting to be almost too humid and hot, they have a comfortable outdoor dining area.

indigo is dark. very dark.

i like this place a lot. one of my favourites and all times bests.

“Indigo's Kebob Week”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

A friend and I headed over to Indigo's for dinner last week. We are both residents of the Rotana Beach Suites so its easy access for us. Currently, Indigo is having a "kebob" special and the regular menu wasn't available (or if it was no one let us know). We enjoyed the generous selection of kebobs and the excellent service. Price was about right. Will definitely return when the full menu is available again.

“Amazing Flavours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Lovely greeting and superb service & food. The Shrimp Moilee is the most flavourful Indian dish I have ever tasted anywhere. Also the lamb cutlets on the 'meat' starter for 2 is unbelieveble - meat that melts in the mouth and the other parts of this starter are also amazing - shrimp, fish, chicken and more - all scrummy!!

“Dinner at Indigo- Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Came here for dinner. We sat outside with a beautiful weather. It was breezy and you could see the island next to it. So it was a great view. The food was very good. We started with the platter of assorted Chaat, which indeed had all the required spices as we would expect.
The main course was also well done with all the spices in correct amount. We told them how it prepare it for us and they listened to our details.
The service is good. They are attentive and ready to serve. We were greeted outside and were attended very nicely at the reception.
I would say well recommended to people who want to try Indian Cuisine in Abu Dhabi. Good job Indigo team.
