I would have to go to India to find a restaurant as good. 10/14/2010

I live in the neighborhood and have been visiting Indigo for over 10 years. I have tried many NYC Indian restaurants, the expensive ones and many of the 6th street restaurants. My favorite restaurant is Indigo. Their basmati rice is light and fluffy, their curries are robust and soothing. Indigo has a fresh salad bar on the side so you can help yourself to cucumber, mint chutney and yogurt. Indigo has an all you can eat buffet for under ten dollars, which includes all you can eat naan and chicken tandoori fresh from the oven. They have fish on the menu, which you usually only find in the more expensive restaurants. The ambiance at Indigo is warm and clean, the service is genuinely friendly. I honestly can't think of a restaurant in NYC that is as generous. I honestly think I would have to go to India to find a restaurant as good as Indigo. more

Light, Flavorful & Great Value 7/8/2010

I frequent this restaurant often as it is in my neighborhood and the food is exceptional. I highly recommend the Shrimp and Lamb dishes as they are light flavorful and only as spicy as you request. They have expanded their menu to included dishes of Lamb, and chicken vindaloo. Pros: Best Shrimp, Lamb, chicken, Bread dishes Cons: Location would be better if it was at the corner more

Great food, great service, amazing prices 7/28/2008

If you're looking to get away from the outrageous prices in Midtown, the Indigo is just a few quiet blocks east from Lexington & 50th and has great food at great prices. The restaurant only had two other people dining there when I went last week at 8pm on a Tuesday night, but they seem to have a thriving delivery business (free delivery). The atmosphere is pleasant, service is attentive, portions were generous, and the food was deliciously spicy. I ordered a sampling of three different appetizers with a side of rice and kheer and my bill came to $20! I wish I had found it earlier during my stay! Next time business takes me to Midtown, I'll go there again. Pros: Ambience, price, service, food hot & spicy more

Wonderful atmosphere, great service, delicious lunch buffet 5/9/2008

Favorite Indian restaurant and neighborhood staple 3/5/2008

I have been living in this neighborhood for almost two years and my boyfriend and I have eaten at Indigo at least once a month since. It's definitely our favorite Indian restaurant in the city. The food is consistently fresh and delicious, the wait staff is friendly and attentive without hovering, and the prices are very reasonable. The lunch buffet is very high quality and inexpensive. The atmosphere is lovely to dine in; nice decor, clean, interesting but unobtrusive music. I highly recommend this restaurant. Pros: Excellent food, Great value, Wonderful service Cons: None. more

Great food. Great Service. 1/30/2008

This place is unbelievable. The staff is so friendly and are eager to recommend a delicious dish you haven't tried yet or that isn't even on the menu. The price is MORE than reasonable and the food is consistently good. Pros: food, service, price, basically everything Cons: nothing. It is a wonderful place to eat. more

fantastic 1/4/2008

Basera a restaurant that has recently been opened. OK, I have dined at many Indian Restaurants in NYC, and after my dining experience here, I will never go anywhere else--Indigo is spectacular! The ambiance is warm and inviting, the music transcendental, the lighting perfect and the staff excellent The service was impeccable and they seemed to read our minds--I am not sure we will need a menu next time. There are so many delicious items on the menu we left the appetizer choices up to the waiter and was that a good decision--If you come here and don?t try the Bhel Puri (puff rice, cilantro, noodle, etc) as an appetizer you don?t know what you are missing--that complemented with the Vegetable Samosas, Bhajias (fritters) and other assorted items I cannot pronounce--wow! So for dinner, and I love spicy, I had the Lamb Vindaloo (requested spicy+), My Lamb was so tender and the sauce--I am still thinking about it! The spices warmed and reached its residual heat index just as I finished--whoa! Just in time, one more minute and I would have pulled the fire alarm, but was that delicious. Dessert--Leaving without trying the Kulfi would be like stopping 10 feet short of reaching the peak of Everest. Now, if only I can find an apartment near by. Pros: everythingg Cons: parking more
