Reviews for Indigo

This business is a MenuMania SponsorOne of the Business' Favourite Reviews
In short – awesome
The food was exquisite. It’s very hard finding Indian food which is not ‘doctored’ to fit the Kiwi pallet. Indigo delivered a wide ranging menu which I for one had difficulty choosing from. My fresh fish curry reminded me of the one I’d enjoyed several years ago in Bangalore. Given my dilemma with the menu, I’ll be back!

Indigo was great, I went there with my sister and had a really good time. It had brilliant service. I loved it. It was a good atmosphere and the food was delicious I had butter chicken and a sundae and both were so yum! Overall great place to go for a nice meal.

Indigo rates 5 stars with our family. The whole dining experience was fantastic from the moment we walked through the doors. We were escorted to our tables and given enough time to decide and order our food, which was delicious. It was my granddaughters birthday and Indigo wished her a happy birthday by free sundaes. Would highly recommend a dining experience at Indigo.

Fantastic. What a find.
Decor clean modern sparse expensive…no stupid fake paintings and statues and red wallpaper here.
Service brilliant. Quick, attentive yet low profile and not pushy. Excellent staff that must be highly trained.
Started with immediate water, bowl of poppadoms, plate of free condiments of onion, mango chutney, lime pickle. Heaven.
Beer was local and on tap though lots of others available.
Starter perfectly cooked and tasty.
Rice best had for ages being light and fluffy.
Fish curry tender, tasty, fresh.
Naan fresh and tasty and light.
This place is seriously good. I travel and eat out a lot so have some comparisons.

We had dinner at Indigo once after being recommended going there by a friend. Now this is my first option when going out for a Indian meal in Napier. Ten out of ten ! Service was one of the best I have come across in Napier so far.

I visited Napier on business and ordered take away. Was pleasantly surprised by the prompt delivery and service. Visited the restaurant later that same week and enjoyed the warm atmosphere and friendliness of the staff and authentic Indian chefs.
The goat dish I had was delicious – complimented by the good selection of great New Zealand wines.
Will definitely visit next time I’m in Napier.

This was my first visit to Indigo since it opened, I had heard lots of good things about it and though I would give it a visit. I went with my wife who is normally not a great fan of Indian food. We started with the Tandoori Platter, the waiter had warned us that it was a lot of food and he was not wrong. We have never had anything like this at an Indian Restaurant before, all the meat was perfectly cooked and obviously fresh. I had the Goat Madras for my main and my wife had Butter Chicken, both where absolutely great even though we could not finish them all, the staff where kind enough to package the food that was left so we could take home. Overall the service was excellent and the food was outstanding, we shall definitely be back very soon

Beautiful food and very well priced.
Easily the Best Indian Food around
Friendly Staff who are very professional and knowledgeable.
I recommend the mango Chick and Onion Bhaji
The free delivery option is dangerous as I have no option but to keep ordering from Indigo!

Dont go to Indigo. You will be addicted and you will not be able to resist going back. The best Indian food I have ever eaten. All meats are cooked to tender perfection. The Nhari, Butter chicken, Lamb Rogan Josh, Lamb Madras have the perfect balance of spices. The creme de la creme on the menu is the Peshwari Naan…a must with any curry. There is no better combination. I must admit, I am finding it hard not to go to this fabulous restaurant at least once a week.

Quite simply the best Indian Restaurant in Hawkes Bay!!!
The staff are friendly and knowledgeable, and the food is fantastic. (Any Lamb dish will impress)
I went there for the second time last night with my wife. As before we were warmly greeted at the door and shown a large booth where we could take our time ordering from a good selection.
The dishes arrived in no time, with a smile and they were outstanding! Unfortunately we were in a little bit of a rush, but otherwise would have stayed and enjoyed the atmosphere. 10/10 Great to see this caliber of restaurant opening in Napier….can’t wait to go back!

I was in Napier on business for a couple of days last week and had seen reviews about Indigo so thought I would give it a try. I took a business friend who would not normally by a fan of Indian food.
My first impression was that the restaurant was very unlike any Indian Restaurant I had been to before, the decor is very contemporary and the place is spacious. We sat at a booth which was ideal as we could discuss business in relative privacy and interference from other diners. The wine list was unbelievable for an Indian restaurant with a large selection of good quality local wines. The menu had the things you would expect from an Indian as well as some dishes I had never seen. The Roti Baboti starter was fabulous, probably the most delicious Indian food I had ever tasted, I opted for the Chicken Madras as a main, again this was excellent, very flavorsome and made with fresh coconut.
The service was attentive and friendly
I would recommend Indigo to all food lovers

We had lunch at Indigo this week, and it was the best Indian experience I’ve had for a very long time. The chicken tikka entree was cooked to perfection, tender and delicious, and my main of Dhanshak beef was tasty and tender with just the right amount of spice. The naan bread was crispy outside and soft inside, due to the charcoal tandoor. The duty manager was attentive, friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back.

I had heard lots about Indigo and thought it was about time I gave it a try. Rather than eat in I decided to get a takeaway to try it out. I went to the restaurant to order and have to say the place has been fantastically refurbished from when it was the Kazba. I ordered a Tandori Chicken and a Rogan Josh plus Naans. The service was very promt and polite and while waiting I enjoyed a glass of Kingfisher (on tap). The food took a litttle longer then a normal Indian Takeaway (15-20 mins), I was told it would take this long as it is cooked from fresh each time.
Well it was certainly worth the wait, the food was superb, I eat Indian probably once a month and I have never had tastes like it. The next time I fancy Indian food there is no doubt this is where I will go

Not my usual sort of Indian restaurant – however after traipsing about for 7 years to find a decent Indian meal in NZ – I’ve finally found a place which serves food of the quality available almost everywhere in the UK (sic!).
The food at Indigo was excellent. The much raved about chefs know their stuff. I have a staple order on any 1st visit to an Indian – if they can’t get that right, I don’t bother going back. My onion bhaji and chicken madras certainly hit the spot.
The only ‘down side’ – apart from the poncy head water – is that I live in Auckland – so Napier is a bit too far to drop in for a curry. I’ll have to test their delivery policy!
In short – a great evening, wonderful food – and it won’t break the bank.

I was down in Napier on business from Auckland and was very impressed with my Lamb Nhari. The presentation was fantastic, the flavours were excellent and a there was a pleasant ambiance. All made for a great evening. Not to mention the great selection of whisky. Couldn’t be better! Highly recommended. I will definitely be back.

This is one of the best Indian Restaurants outside of India. I travel the world regularly for business and have also frequented India many times – in most cases I have come away from Indian Restaurants severely disappointed – I like spicy hot and usually get burning, tasteless hot – but not at Indigo. Entering the restaurant a bit sceptical I tried a combination of starters and entrées (sharing with my dinner companion) and both the mild and hot offerings were fantastic! This is charcoal cooking as found in India vs. gas found in most Indian restaurants outside India and the difference is certainly found in a very worthwhile culinary experience. Restaurant atmosphere and decor fits perfectly with Napier and prices are very reasonable – especially when considering the gastronomy! The whiskey collection is one of the biggest I have ever seen in a restaurant in New Zealand and they also serve Kingfisher on Tap. Whether you like it mild or hot you will struggle to find better Indian Cuisine anywhere else in the world!

Wow, what a fantastic experience and not the usual curry house I am used to! Great atmosphere and especially like the fact(I presume) they had created their own winelist without the price being over the top.
The food was fantastic. The Samosas are made on site I was told and they were so fresh and tasty. And a great twist on the onion bhajis too. Then, the main of Lamb Jhalfrezee was something I would recommend to anyone. So tender, so good. And the plates were warm!
The presentation of the food was also very creative which left a great impression. We were visiting from Christchurch and the meal was so good we went back for lunch the next day!

Excellent service and lovely decor. We had a great meal and the owners really ensured we were satisfied with everything. The lamb shanks are the best there is.
Indigos provides excellent Indian cuisine. I have eaten at several Indian restaurants throughout NZ and Indigos cannot be beaten

We had the three course lunch menu and thoroughly enjoyed every course, the flavours were to die for! The wine list was good, also great to see the light beer was cheaper than full strength beer. The service was fantastic as were the surroundings. We will definitely be back.

Visited here on a lunch deal voucher, first thing that struck was how haphazard the service was but entertaining at the same time (but it was first week)
starters of onion bhaji and Murgh Malai Tikka ,where as good as you will get totally delicious.
Main courses of butter chicken and lamb madras also hit the mark although the lamb was very salty but spiced perfectly, giving a nice spiced heat without the chilli burn that many Curry’s give.
Sweets again where lovely.
Also put in the price of the wine is competitive a place I would recommend to anyone
visited again .have to say still as good . staff still a little chaotic even though it was a quiet sunday dinner time
food again excellent. best curry in hawkes bay by far
my only little moan was i had my curry indian hot . very good heat but just needed the chilli cooking a through a little more as there was a sligh powdery/rawness as an underlying flavour
still would recommend to anyone .keep up the good work folks
28th April 2012
Enjoyed a 3 course lunch. Great service . Been very disappointed with so called Indian food served in Napier/Hastings but Indigo has given me hope that I can go out and enjoy Indian food cooked for me rather than spend hours in the kitchen preparing my own . Will definately return to sample other dishes.

Outstanding food. Weve been waiting for so long for a decent Ruby Murray in Napier. I dine here at least once a week. The flavours are not lost in the sauce like many butter chicken establishments. Bravo Indigo

Very tasty Indian Restaurant! Butter Chicken was the best I have tasted in a long time, and service was fantastic! Great setting with seats out the front, and comfy seating inside. Go Indigo!

very good food, excellent staff. , the whole experience made the evening a very relaxing and enjoyable occasion. The wine list was extensive as was the menu. From our being seated at the table to our paying the account at the end I could not find fault with this restaurant

Food was beautiful. As soon as we had the starter we knew we were in for a treat. The portions were exactly right. The service was excellent and the staff very friendly and obliging. We had a 3 course lunch. We ordered the lamb madras and butter chicken. The meat in both dishes was tender and juicy and the sauces were flavoursome! Most certainly will be back. Recommend this to anyone who appreciates quality Indian cuisine.

Big fan of Indian Food. Great place and fantastic service.
I had the spicy Lamb chops to start followed by the Chicken Tika Masala, the food was fantastic and the use of a charcaol tandoor really makes a difference
Will be visiting again very soon

Good service, nice surroundings/atmosphere, food pretty good though a bit salty, only real criticism is servings very big, which is fine in itself but a suggestion that we shouldn’t order so much would have been appreciated! We wasted a lot of food, as all very filling! Dessert was delicious!
