There were six of us and it was the second time we had been to Indigo. We love indian food and this is by far the best indian food we have ever tasted. Also the portion sizes are much larger than what you normally get at an indian restaurant. The range of wines are superb, the service second to none... More

Huge menu consisting of the usual Indian fare. The daily specials were excellent. We shared the Tandoori chops as an entre and the special salmon as a main with Chana masala to compliment. The naan breads were very interesting - with dried fruit. Definitely recommend. Service and food were superb. Amazing to find this calibre of restaurant in this lovely... More

The food is fantastic. It really is. Lovely freah flavours. The service efficient and well-timed. The ambience is a little cold, with the building being a large space. The bathroom smells. It seems that there is either poor ventilation or poor plumbing...or both. It really put me off my meal.

Hi Many thanks for your review Unfortunately we did have an issue with our drainage in the gentlemens toilet, we had a blocked drainage pipe which had caused a back up, this occurred sometime over the weekend and has since been repaired. I am very sorry this effected your enjoyment and I sincerely apologise for this. We have been open... More

Definitely make a booking, we were disappointed the first night as they were already full at 6:00 pm when we tried to walk in. Nice upscale indian restaurant. The food was to a high standard and the place is beautiful inside. High ceilings, nice décor and the tables are spaced far enough away for privacy. The service was very attentive... More

An unexpected meal at Indigo instead of cooking tea was a real pleasure last night with both of us having something we had not had before - mine was Murgh Pasandey (stuffed chicken breast ) and his was Goat Masala. Both brilliant and would have again. The Restaurant was full with a really good hum about it and the service... More

What you can expect on the menu at Indigo We are a contemporary fine dining Indian restaurant where all of our dishes are cooked fresh to order. We never compromise on quality and offer a range of traditional and unique dishes, constantly offering our guests new experiences and tastes. Getting the spice right Our Indian hot is truly hot, so we only recommend it if you know you enjoy spice. We offer 5 more levels of spice from Extremely Hot,New Zealand hot, medium, medium-Hot and mild. Please ask us about which dishes suit the spicier styles such as Jalfrezi's and Vindaloos, as some dishes like Korma or Dal Bukhara are best enjoyed milder. The Kitchen We operate a traditional charcoal tandoor that you can be assured gives the best flavour to all our dishes including our selection of naan breads. All dishes are cooked from scratch specifically to your order. The Drinks Menu Indigo offers the largest selection of Hawke's Bay wine in the region and is proud to offer one of the broadest selections of gin, vodka, rum and bourbons. What are you famous for? We pour the largest whiskey selection in New Zealand with over 400 bottles on offer. Whiskey connoisseur and Indigo owner Paul Anderson will happily help you with a recommendation. You can order Indigo for delivery to your accommodation anywhere in Napier. This is ideal to continue sampling Hawke's Bay wines or global whiskies in your own time. You may also arrive at the Amber Bar after dining anywhere in Napier from 7pm. Where is Indigo Indigo is situated in the Parker's Chambers Art Deco Building built in 1932 in the heart of Napier. Table seating is ideal for groups, as well as booth seating for groups of 4 - 6. We recommend advance table booking Thursday through Sunday.
