Love it here. Great menu for the kids with a good range of options for them to pick from. Food was yummy - this is the 2nd time we have been and both times great. Roomy inside - the don't have the tables jammed up by each other.

Very popular Indian restaurant, with exceptional food, amazing Art Deco building, jazz music and dimmed lights... book ahead to avoid missing out. This place gets packed out quick - which is indicative of how good the food is. Also had takeaway option.

Good menu. Shame about the food. I only return because I see the ratings but they cannot be true as it really is not a true Indian. The food is not authentic. A disappointment again.

Just do takeaway for our dinner, the Chicken Vindaloo was yummy, at a reasonable price with rice and Papadum package, this was a right choice for our dinner.

We went here on New Years Eve. The restaurant is clean, there was a live bad playing music of all genres and it was not so packed with tables that you felt jammed in. The staff were friendly and really so helpful. We were guided to dishes we wouldn't normally order and they were divine. I was with two foodies... More

We have been looking forward for one year to come back to Indigo from Erie PA USA. You know how that can go, big expectations and possible big disappointments. Nope, not here. Everything was perfect. The Spicy Grilled Lamb Chops were just like the memory, divine. I could eat them everyday. We ordered a smattering of other menu items and... More

If you can get in here for dinner you will be stoked. Large menu, beautiful food. We especially like the Dahl soup, lamb chops and chicken platter for entree and the home style chicken curry for main with chilli cheese naan. Never had a bad dish it's all yummy!

Based on a recommendation of a friend I decided to try Indigo on the spur of the moment one Tuesday night. I was surprised at how busy the restaurant was for a Tuesday night. The atmosphere was very nice, service very good as was the food. The dried fruit & coconut naan bread was delicious!

Thank RobynMaree500

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 400 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 - 6. We recommend advance table booking Thursday through Sunday.
