Had dinner here with friends after a very cold Army Navy game. We were seated very quickly and welcomed with a taste of soup as we sat down. Food was wonderful with tons of flavor. Would eat here again.

A bit underwhelmed with IndeBlue, frankly. The space itself is very nice and tastefully decorated. We went to the Center City IndeBlue location on a Tuesday night, and the service was attentive without being overbearing. We started with the crispy vegetable chili and sweet potato pakora, and the chili appetizer was quite good. Our entrees of aloo bhindi and tikka paneer were rather bland, no hint of spice and generally not memorable. My expectations for IndeBlue were high, the reality was rather meh.

I happened to find this place after a colleague suggested that we find an Indian place to go for dinner. I am so glad we did.

This is upscale Indian dining- there's no skeevy buffet of items cooked hours previously, you're not rushed and the wait-staff is very knowledgable about the menu.

Vegetarians will be very happy as there's a pretty good selection of food- I selected two half servings to make a whole meal. YUM. I had the paneer and the eggplant. Highly recommend both. The rice is perfectly cooked as well.

My colleague got the chicken masala and it was amazing. He was so happy!

We shared a nice bottle of wine- the wine list was pretty good- wines aren't cheap so plan accordingly.

I would go back in a heartbeat. This is the kind of Indian food that will make the run of the mill place seem really unsatisfactory. You do pay for the premium atmosphere and food but really, it's worth it.

Being of Indian descent, I hold Indian restaurants in the USA to a high standard, and usually find them lacking. Not so and Indeblue. The drinks menu was interesting, and the happy hour menu for both food and drink were reasonable. The vegetarians in the group were very pleased by the variety of choices. The spinach chaat, baingan bartha and mango panna cotta were standouts. The flavors in the food were authentic. Service was friendly and attentive. I hope to return to try some of the meat and seafood dishes.

We are lovers of Indian food and have eaten in many restaurants in this
area and this bistro ranks among the best. The ambiance and service is
excellent and the cuisine is outstanding. There are many vegetarian and
gluten free options plus a full bar. The location is great since Thirteenth
Street has become one of the best restaurant destinations in downtown
Philly.
