I have been to many of the Indian buffets in Baltimore and I think Indigma does the best job. There are so many choices, all the food is fresh, and it's not drowned by butter. Though we have other great Indian restaurants in the area I appreciate the fact that the food at Indigma seems healthier. There is a great salad bar, always fresh fruit, and they bring fresh nan to your table. The location (right on mt. Vernon square by the first Washington Monument) and atmosphere of the restaurant is top notch. If you can get a table in the front room, you will have a grand view of the monument from the huge side window.

Indigma has undergone a resurrection after the fire the gutted the previous location (next to Donna's), just across the street in Mt. Vernon. The last time we ate there, it was an improvement over the previous fusion restaurant, Saffron, but still left a bit to be desired. (Saffron was a mess).

This visit was a marked improvement over the food at the previous location. Staple Indian fare (Chicken Tikka Masala, Tandoor, Rogan Josh, etc.) complemented with experimental fare (open faced samosa, mango paneer, dahl and corn soup). All of it, for the most part worked well. The decor is beautiful (but a bit more subdued than the previous location across the street), service solid and attentive.

It is definitely higher end Indian food (I'm honestly happy up the street at Kumari too) and gives Ambassador Dining Room a logical and worthy foe, even if Baltimore is not an Indian food mecca. :) Still enjoy the trek to DC for fave spots like Rasika.

No other Indian restaurant in the Baltimore area comes close to the innovative variety of Indian and Indian inspired dishes you'll find at Indigma. And, the "grand buffet" is a great way to sample them. I especially enjoy the Malabar / South Indian inspired dishes that are hard to come by in Baltimore -- fried fish, egg curry, coconut flavored potato.

All the Mughal favorites are here as well and all are expertly prepared. Don't miss the creative salad selections such as the kale/kumquat, the brussels sprouts and the interesting array of chutneys -- turnip, strawberry, ginger to mention a few.

Our server was a little too inexperienced to be on his own. Thankfully, the owner was an attentive, gracious presence who was able to keep things moving along.

We love good Indian food. We used to go to the Ambassador where the food and the porch (though not the inside of the place) are outstanding. But after they turned up their noses at my grandkids (though well-behaved) and looked down on our sharing food, I no longer go there. Much too snobby for my tastes. Resulted for a time in a "cut off our nose to spite our face" situation...where to get good Indian food. We have found it at Indigma. Extensive menu! Very nice owner! Attentive wait staff. Unpretentious. Comfortable.
