Description: 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 500 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 - 8. We recommend advance table booking Thursday through Sunday.

Five of us went for an early dinner at Indigo tonight, from the moment we walked in we could tell it was going to be awesome, the service is impeccable , the booths more than generous for seating and the ambiance perfect. Now for the food , we shared two tandoori platters which were both generous and authentically tasty. The stuffed chicken drumstick is a must as is the rest to be fair. We ordered five different mains to share( pure greed methinks) and they were all faultless , the chefs special ( lamb shank) was fall off the bone perfect. It's not often five people go out and everyone is perfectly satisfied . This was our visit to Indigo and believe me it won't be our last , by far the best Indian meal I have had in NZ. Great work all, your Hawkes Bay hospitality award is well deserved.

Hi
Thankyou so much for your review, we really do appreciate you taking the time to write a review.
It is great to read that your whole party of 5 enjoyed your experience at Indigo. We have 3 fantastic Chef's and a highly passionate front of house team.
The Tandoori platters are one of my favourites as well and they really are very different from most Indian Restaurants
Again many thanks for your review and we look forward to seeing you again
Kind regards
Paul

This restaurant is absolutely lovely. The staff were very attentive and well-trained, the decor/atmosphere was lovely, the menu was varied and very reasonably priced, and the food was served in large portions for the price, and delicious. A no-brainer, if you want a sophisticated evening out or a casual dinner with a loved one, then this place delivers spectacularly.

The modern furnishings & decor is very welcoming & tasteful. Our dishes of Lamb Korma & Butter Chicken were beautifully cooked. And we enjoyed eating our meals with rice & naan bread. The service we received on the night was both friendly & very professional. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at the Indigo!
