Quaint little romantic booths and gorgeous food - what more can you ask. This restaurant is reasonably priced and the staff are fab. Food was well cooked and presented and extremely tasty. Also has a menus with desks on so ideal for families. Will definitely return!

Visited Indigo on Saturday night after a few drinks in Shields, got there around 10.10pm and only one table of customers in. Waiter was so miserable when he took our order, not a thank you in sight. Food arrived relatively quick but again no conversation on its arrival. Ordered chicken chat starter which was ok but nothing amazing, main course... More

Visited Indigo Indian restaurant last week for first time. Essentially went in by chance as we had agreed we would go in whichever one was nearest where we parked the car! We were pleased we did as the welcome and service was excellent even though very early evening and initially we were only 2in there. Other couples soon followed. Food... More

Ordered a take away from this restaurant, ordered it via the just eat app for 18.30 hrs. I got an e mail saying that they received my order and it would be delivered at the time we asked for.

Located on the famous South Shields Ocean drive the competition is fierce so each restaurant has to be good and this is no exception. The waiters are very smartly dressed and the service is excellent . The food is good but not great and I have eaten better although the tandoori lamb chops were delicious . Decor is cool and...

First trip to Ocean Road & hopefully not the last. Only a small place but a really enjoyable meal with a varied menu with one or two dishes I've never seen before. I had the scallops in a Karahi sauce which were lovely as were the tandoori port chops to start with. Menu is available online

having never been thought we would give this a go, we all ordered from the special menu yet when the bill came it was at least £10 more than it should have been, one of the dishes a prawn balti was very bland and left uneaten, the manager did remove this from the bill but overall very dissappointing

Very nice curry and very reasonable prices- as is all of ocean road, with the usual special menu available here too !.... However this place nicer than the other restuarants to sit in, service was good and food itself was very tasty. Would return

Thank LJmose
