“Back again! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013 via mobile

Just a quick shout out to say thank you for the succulent meal! Seafood soup, Tiger Prawn Moilee and Sea bass at it's very best! 'Twas a celebration of seafood!

Even more so, the customer service experience goes above and beyond taking orders and offering food. Anil and Javed are well-educated on the menu, and what their customers want.

I’ll be heading back soon!

“Delicious - signature dish is a must try!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

The signature lamb dish (Sikandari raan) at Indigo is AMAZING! It was suggested for two people but could have fed four. Such a fabulous combination of flavours (pot roasted leg of baby lamb, stuffed prunes, Goan pickled onion and cheese baked under a ‘purdah’ pastry and served with gravy). Don't be put off by the fact that it takes 40 minutes to prepare - the wait is well worth it. Have a few mango lassis while you wait. We also had the seafood platter which was quite good.

For two of us it was a lot of very delicious food (including amuse bouche). Service was excellent; admittedly it was not particularly busy as we were adjusting to the time zone and had an unusually early dinner. The complimentary chai tea offered at the end of the meal was a great note on which to finish. I don't know the Abu Dhabi market well enough to say whether it was a particularly expensive meal - however comparing the quality, service and location (in the Beach Rotana hotel complex) to its equivalent in Northern Europe, we thought the cheque was reasonable.

“First Indian experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013

After a very bad short experience with a cheap Indian place many years ago, I have never felt tempted to try Indian food again, however, I have now tried Indigo twice during the past few weeks for business lunches and it is nice to see that I had the wrong impression of Indian food. I can highly recommend Indigo, there are dishes for those who like hot and spicy food and for those (me) that like it more moderately spiced. The waiters are nice and have a very good knowledge of the food so if it is your first time to an Indian restaurant, you can safely go with their recommendations. Overall, a place that I will come back to with pleasure. Try their soups, they are delicious!
