Indigos in South Shields is Amazing, always a fantastic curry and they even made me a curry that wasn't on the menu, the starters are amazing, food is well presented on the plate, everything's fresh. I would rate this out of a 100 as 100. Best Indians I've Ever been too. Very friendly staff too.

Visited this restaurant with a group of work colleagues in the early evening. It was my first visit and found the staff very welcoming. I particularly liked the decor and atmosphere. There waz a gud choice on the menu and not too confusing. The meal itself was lovely and I will be visiting again with my family.

Recently visited this restaurant with my boyfriend, mam and nana - have to say it was without a doubt the best curry I have ever had!!! We all know that bloated and heavy feeling we get when eating a curry and usually the next day we pay the price however here it was so different. The curry was light and... More

I visited this place with 4 friends on a wet Wednesday night but the restaurant was warm and the food was nice and very good value for what we paid. I would go back there.

We took 2 separate parties of friends to Indigo and both groups enjoyed the varied menu and the high quality of the food. The waiters were efficient, friendly and proffessional. This is a restaurant to be recommended.

If you visit Ocean Road in South Shields, you are spoilt for choice by the wealth of eating establishments, in the past couple of years we have tried most of them, the majority being good, some need to try harder but there are one or two that are of the highest standard. Indigo is truly one of the best! An... More

Food is absolutely excellent and I understand service is usually pretty quick. Was not on the night when I was there, but I'll give them benefit of doubt. They also have a loyalty discount, so it's a restaurant I'd head to.

Visited as a group of 5. Food and service good. A clean and welcoming restaurant. It is small, but a fairly large group were dining. There are many restaurants in the area and have tried a few, the food here was very good and will go back, we didn't book, but because it is small I think would book next... More
