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.

Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

We went to the Thali event at Indigo, it was an amazing experience,the staff were dressed in traditional Indian costume. The food was served in small bowls on a tray, twelve dishes for each person. It was a very nice selection of Indian food. The staff as always were very attentive and polite.

“Some of the best Indian food in NZ”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

Excellent well presented and sensibly priced food with good service to match. A massive choice and a good winelist too, plus a choice of four shelves of whisky from behind the bar.The place is a little cavernous, but who cares!

“What a place”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

Dined at Indigo for the first time last Friday, I read in the paper that they had won the Award for best ethnic restaurant for the 2nd time so thought we best give it a try
I can certainly see why!
Friday night jazz was great
Fantastic wine a beverage list
The food was so fresh so plentiful, the tandoori platter we had to start was amazing, the quality of meat was 2nd to none
The service was very friendly and efficient
A really nice evening, thanks Indigo

Have dined here 3 times now, never been disappointed. The prawn kebabs have even got me eating prawns now, which I'd not been into before!

“Excellent Food”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Had a mother/daughter lunch here on the basis of the Trip Advisor reviews, and wasn't disappointed. Lunch prices were excellent value, and the quality of food the best Indian we have had in NZ.. The lamb was particularly tender and lean. Top service, reasonable wine. Would definitely return.
