My husband and I dined here recently for the first time as we had heard a lot of good things about it and it was time to check it out. The food was great and also came in generous portions. So much so that I couldn't do justice to my main after a large and delicious entree. The decor in... More

Sub par. That's all I have to say, tried ordering takeaways and could not understand person at all, so really was a lucky dip as to what I got. Did end up with butter chicken which is what I wanted, but just had no flavour or spices what so ever and Naan bread was dry and old

Such a surprise! After living in Asia for 12 years we've become very particular about various Asian cuisines after authentic experiences for so long. Indigo was an incredible surprise serving up a table full of authentic tasting Indian dishes. Combined with excellent drinks too. Service was efficient and not over the top. We love the bar decor, modern and trendy.... More

Finally visited this place after calling in on two previous visits to Napier and not being able to get a table so we knew it would be good and the food didn't disappoint . It's the best Indian restaurant food we have tried on our travels around NZ and we have tried quite a few ! The fish tikka entree... More

We didn't book and just turned up on a Sunday night. We had chilli chicken, seafood Korma and butter chicken. All dishes were very yummy and were the perfect spicy level. Service was great and we would come back in a heart beat.

We were staying across the road at the Masonic Hotel & decided to order a takeaway from here. They brought it direct to our room for no charge. Hows that for service! Food was great tasting. Wish we had of dined in now!

Have always been a touch hesitant towards Indian after a bad experience, but their Chef's specialty menu has absolutely cured me. The Nilgiri (excuse spelling) Korma was so packed with flavour, and the lamb was perfectly tender. Service was swift and very pleasant, can't wait to go and experience again. Congrats to the incredible chef.

The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere with great lighting, aesthetically pleasing interior decoration and some euphonious live music. The waiter who served us was very polite and very knowledgeable about the menu. Every dish we ordered was cooked to perfection. The naan bread was delightful. When I lived in India for a 6 month work placement, I had to survive... More

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.
