    My boyfriend and I decided to try I Indieblue on a whim and result of googling. It just so happened to be restaurant week so we had the four course meal which we did not regret. Our server Chris was quirky but nice. We did have to wait a bit for our food or drinks at times but it was partially the kitchen/runners fault. The couple near by and ourselves had to wait a bit for our desert to go. He also gave us some complimentary Chai tea. We ordered the crispy spinach salad which was unexpected and amazing. We also got prime rib simosas and the blue cheese sauce was to die for. Our entree was chicken tikka makhani which was delicious as were the garlic Naan and spinach cheese. Would definitely return and recommend to friends!

    We booked dinner here for a last minute anniversary meal. We've dined here before and always have a good experience. The waiter was great and he allowed us to move our table to a quieter setting. He was kind and attentive. The restaurant took the trouble to call us after we booked on Open Table to let us know it was a special restaurant week menu -- a thoughtful gesture. The food was excellent and the courses seemed full size even though it was a four course menu. We have always been pleased with this restaurant for both food and service.

    My dish (medium spicy Goat with ginger & peppers) was excellent. My wife had saag paneer (spinach & cheese) which was salty. When the server asked how the food was, we said it was not to my wife's taste. Even though there was nothing wrong with her dish, they remade another with less salt for her, which we greatly appreciated.

    I love it here. The food is beyond delicious. If you like spicy and aren't accustom to Indian food, I recommend going medium spice. Our waiter this trip may have actually been from India so he was a little hard to understand. What he was recommending might have been helpful could we have heard him. He seemed to speak quietly. But alas it wasn't too much of an issue. Everything is always good and the man was very polite and prompt.

    I have just relocated to the area and in my search for a good Indian restaurant I came across Indeblue. My expectations were exceeded after a lovely meal; the flavors were complex and the medium spice had the right amount of kick for me. The highlights were the onion bhahi and the sweet naan paired with the dhansak. I will definitely be returning and hopefully next time I won't forget the Tiger/Cobra Beer!

    We took 4 friends for their first Indian food. The waiter was very helpful and we tried an assortment of dishes including the goat biriani. What a great night. Everything was delicious. You must have some of the Kashmiri naan. It's a BYOB so don't forget to bring a bottle to complement the meal. I can say we now have 4 more Indian cuisine lovers. We'll be back.

    I liked my meal, it was not great but it was good. However, eating "upstairs" does get noisy, if you value dinner conversation don't sit upstairs. The front porch may be the best locale. The price of the meal was high, I've eaten her three times and now considering each experience I'd say the value is not there. I've had better Indian food for about 60-70% of the price I paid here. I had the gluten free Naan on each occasion and only enjoyed it once. But, on that one visit it was great. A really good idea. The regular Naan is good not great, but it will cost you $4.00 per serving of one piece. Every other Indian restaurant gave us as much Naan as we wanted for free.

  • Very good Entree, Naan was poor
    goodfish
    Dined on 8/22/2014
    Three of the four of us ordered the Sea Bass and we all loved it, really nice, fresh, spiced and cooked just right. The bread basket was unimpressive but not bad, just not worth the $12 we paid. I ordered the gluten-free Naan, it was awful; doughy and limp. I had ordered it before and that time the gluten-free Naan was just great. So, I'd say this restaurant is inconsistent, sometimes great, but not reliably so. When we ordered our entree the waiter asked if we'd like it: Spicy, Medium or Mild. We ordered our fish medium and it was fine but the risotto was way too hot, so I guess he meant the risotto and even then they over did it in my opinion. My salad was a bit dry but the Yellow Lentil soup was good. All in all expensive, not a value.

    IndeBlue in Collingswood is a great option for your Indian food fix. The food is always outstanding and BYOB makes it a good value overall. Outdoor seating is available if the weather is favorable. In addition to a nice a la carte selection and seasonal specials, for the price of two entrees they offers a Thali combo pre-fix (available in Veg, Non Veg or Seafood) that includes 2 entrees, appetizer, dal makhani, chutneys, raita, and Naan. I particularly like to go Thursday night when the Sitar and Tablas duo play which adds to the experience (pls tip them to support their appearance). Caveat: The indoor ambiance suffers a bit from noisy acoustics in the dining room, especially if there are obnoxiously loud patrons which is hit or miss.

    We went to IndeBlue with a group of 6 people. 4 of the 6 were never at an Indian restaurant. They were wowed by the look of the restaurant. We had excellent service, and the food was AMAZING. We ordered 4 appetizers, and they liked one so much we had to order another (crispy spinach). We each got an entree, desserts and the famous chai tea. Everything was excellent. They could not wait to return! They also loved the music, and the energy of IndeBlue.

    We go to Indeblue often. We love the variety (changing specials menu with exotic or unusual choices) and the standards. The service is almost always top notch. Occasionally, we have gotten a bad waiter or waitress, but the owner is on top of that and they never last long. My one complaint is very inconsistent spices. I've gotten the same dish dozens of times and sometimes it is perfect, others it is barely recognizable. It isn't just the hotness of the dish, sometimes new or different spices are used. I find this incredibly frustrating, but when it is perfect, it is worth those frustrating times.

    I made reservations for my friends and I to celebrate a birthday. I left a special request on my reservation and to the hostess over the phone mentioning that it was for a friend's birthday. I asked that if my friend doesn't order a dessert if they could bring out a small scoop of ice cream and she said that it wasn't a problem b/c they provide this service. Unfortunately, the server did not acknowledge my special request. There was a considerable/noticeable wait for our food. We went on a Thursday night and it was NOT BUSY AT ALL. There was no excuse for such a long wait on the food. I'm really disappointed because this place is one of my favorites and reflecting on this experience, Indiya's service (downtown Collingswood) is far better.
