A word from Indique
Indique is coined by combining India and the unique. The two-story courtyard is bordered by carved white marble railings. Bold colors and rich fabric lend a refined yet casual ambience to the inviting space. Stark white stylish tableware works as the canvas for the artful creations of the kitchen.
Appearances and flavors are given equal attention and both excel. Appetizers, named First Tastes draw on traditional Indian favorites and contemporary innovations like tapas or meze and served on small plates. Tandoor specialties shine here with rare coastal seafood and regional dishes from the south of India. Attentive service complements the sophisticated kitchen. **For parties larger than 4 people, please book through the restaurant website; www.indique.com **

Another great dinner at Indique.
The lamb shank bhuta is so delicious that I find it impossible not to order every time I dine at Indique. If you enjoy lamb shanks and spicy Indian sauces, this is a perfect dish for you. Service was attentive without intruding. Both of us are already thinking about another visit."

The name Indique is combination of
India and Unique and it describes the restaurant perfectly. Everything we had was both unique and delicious. In particular, the salmon sliders were an awesome appetizer. I had heard that the Lamb Niligri Korma on the Curry menu was a favorite, and it did not disappoint. I might just order that again next time I am there. Service staff was extremely friendly and welcoming as well. I consider this to be a great find in Cleveland Park. Don't miss it."

This is a really great Indian food
joint in the DC area. It is a bit under rated compared to some of the so called "well Known" ones. This is one of the few places, where the food is as close to authentic Indian food that you can get in the DC area. They do have some cocktails here which have a distinct Indian flavor to it. Well worth trying out. The biggest attraction here is the Uppam and Stew. I have not come across any other restaurant, which offers this dish. It is made really well, and definitely worth a visit just for the Uppam and Stew. Highly recommend this place!!"

We made a reservation at 9:30 pm
and had a very relaxed meal of varied kinds of foods served by a very friendly staff"

This was my second time dining
here (it's been years), I came back due to a Groupon that I had to use. I dined with my husband, it was his first time here. We both enjoyed the food and service. We had samoas (which were delicious), lamb vindaloo and chicken tikka. The portion sizes were good and the food was tasty. We enjoyed our meal and would definitely come back in the future."

This is a consistently outstanding
restaurant. Excellent food, great service, quiet, reasonable prices. One of the best places in DC! Thank you!"
Dined on 6/18/2014
The food was excellent as was the
service. I ordered the Acharo Chicken taco as an appetizer and the Chicken Tikka Makhani for the main dish--both delicious. I also enjoyed the Sula Chenin Blanc. I didn't know what to expect from an Indian wine, and I was pleasantly surprised. I also like that fact that it was just outside the Cleveland Park metro stop (west side)."

I had not eaten at Indique in many
years, though I had eaten at its younger sibling, Indique Heights. I found the menu at Indique more interesting, with several dishes (including appams) that I had not seen in Indian restaurants for a long time. The food was excellent, with the exception of one order of underdone rice."

We have now been to Indique twice,
once with a larger group(birthday party), and once after a downtown matinee. We have had chicken, lamb and shrimp dishes, all of which were superb. We shared --it's just too hard not to sample a little bit of everything. The garlic Naan was so good that we ordered extra. Since we were there early in the evening it is difficult to gauge the noise level, but when we were there for the party the place was full and we could still hear each other talk. "

This is the best Indian food I've
had in DC. To top it off, great service and lovely presentation. Highly recommended."

My husband and I are fans of
Indique, but haven't been in a couple of years. We had a rare date night and decided to get back to Indique. I like that their menu has a good variety to please different palates. I tend to stick to more familiar Indian dishes, while my husband likes to branch out and try new things. We were both very happy with our meals and I forgot how yummy their mussels appetizer is! Their cocktails are very good and quite generous. The service is a bit aloof, but the food far outweighs that. Hopefully it won't be so long until our next visit!"
Dined on 5/17/2014
Great greeting upon arrival. I
included in my Open Table reservation and when I arrived to my server that we were celebrating my friend's birthday. But nothing special was said or done. Indique has a great, varied menu. I had stuffed pepper and tomato, my friend had chicken. Both very good. The service could have been a bit more attentive and enthusiastic. I'll go back here."
Dined on 5/14/2014
My friend and I have dined at
Indique three or four times in the past and have been very happy with the ambiance and quality of the food. While my friend's meal was fine (vegetarian) this time, my soup was bland as was my curry chicken. Neither was very hot (actual temperature and spicing). The restaurant was very quiet with only a few people at the tables. One gets the impression that either the food was prepared in a slapdash manner and/or left under a heat lamp and cooled. The service on the porch was inattentive and very spotty. The restaurant needs to be more attentive to all aspects of its operation."

I had heard great reviews about
this place but have never been, so when Mother's day was coming up I decided to surprise my mom and reserve a table. It was definitely worth it because not only was the food delicious, but it was a lot of fun. I gave a 4 for ambience because at times it did get a little bit loud and our table was directly next to the window and this bright street light was interfering with our vision. We asked a waiter to see if he could do something about it, but I guess they couldn't. Other than that, it was a great experience and would definitely love to come again"

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely
spring evening on Indique's outdoor balcony. We dined on an assortment of delicious small plates. The salmon cake and chicken taco are wonderfully flavorful. Service was excellent "
Dined on 5/8/2014
Went here on a Tuesday night, sat
upstairs on the tiny outside balcony (which was wonderful, there was a guy playing jazz outside the metro station so if I closed my eyes, it felt like I was in New Orleans). Food was great, drinks were great, only complaint was how MIA the waiter was, but I assume it was because we were on the balcony, so it was probably easy to forget about us. Would definitely go again!"
Dined on 5/6/2014
This was my 1st visit, for lunch.
Outdoor seating has wonderful Wisconsin Ave. vista. Decor & ambience inside were very nice, & noise abated after noon crowd thinned. Service, though, was uneven. Two requests to the hostess for a menu went ignored, until I got the attention of what appeared to be a manager or senior waiter. Only then did my companion and I finally get menus and decent service. Menu was varied & looked very interesting, but for a lunch, individual items seemed pricey, which drove us to the buffet. Items there were varied, but there seemed to be only 1 chicken & 1 fish item, & only 1 dessert selection. What we had was fine, but it was buffet food. Parking garage available below building; Mazza Gallerie and other shops nearby."

We had a great experience. We got
a groupon that covered all of the meal and it was a great way to explore the diverse menu for a reasonable price."

I always liked Indique due to its
ambiance and good food! also it is conveniently located near Cleveland Park Metro stTion !!"

We'd be regulars if we worked or
lived closer. We started with the mussels--because we love mussels and have had them at many fine restaurants in DC but never cooked a la Indique: Prince Edward Island mussels stewed in their own juices with garlic, shallots, tomato, coconut milk, and curry leaves. We ordered naan to soak up every drop of the broth. Along with the mussels, we had the Mini Dosa, a chicken-stuffed crepe served with assorted chutneys ranging from sweet to spicy hot. For entrees, I had the lamb chops, which were coated in the most amazing concoction of spices--just the right amount of heat to let the various flavor notes glow. The Tandoori salmon was nearly as tasty. We'll get a group together and go back soon. "

Indique is a fantastic restaurant
that offers both great food and a nice ambiance. It is located right next to the metro however there's not a lot of noise or people loitering around it. The food is fantastic and the wait staff is very friendly and nice. They do have a very tiny outdoor patio however only about two tables can fit on it and you have to take a big step up and basically go out through a window. I know people love eating outdoors in the summer; this is not necessarily the place for it. Overall the restaurant definitely earned their 5 stars; if you love Indian food you will love this place."
Dined on 4/12/2014
I have been going to Indique since
it opened. The service is consistently gracious and prompt. While I describe the service as prompt, it is not a rushed dining experience. Unlike most restaurants in DC, you don't get rushed through your meal at Indique. I met friends I had not seen in a year or more. We had a leisurely dinner, lasting around 3 hours. The wine selection is perfect for Indian food. We ordered the Clin Zinfandel, which was perfect. Dinner was elegantly served, not overly fussy -- just perfect. This experience is consistent with all my other visits to the restaurant. Sorry I have not been there for lunch. I always go at night."

Had another very nice meal at
Indique. I have patronized this restaurant since it opened, albeit infrequently, as it is not in my neighborhood. Previously, it was very difficult to get in, but the past couple of times that I went, it was quite easy. I'm not sure why this has changed, or if it was just my timing, but it was to my benefit! I recommend the food and atmosphere."

This neighborhood is often ignored
by residents and tourists a like, but Indique gives you a great reason to check out the area. It offers a nice blend of South Asian cuisine; highly recommend the shrimp curry."

Indique is my favorite spot for
Indian food in DC. Delicious food, prompt service, and a cozy ambience. Highly recommend that lamb vindaloo."

My husband and I have been here 5
times. Always a joy. We especially enjoy making a meal of a variety of small plates."

A very romantic location just at
the western entrance of the Cleveland Park Metro. Unusual layout, with a second floor balcony overlooking the first floor. If possible aim for the second floor table by the window. Food is quite good, sort of nouveau Indienne, if there's such a thing (and if I got my tenses right...). Could have used one or two more standard dishes, and a few seemed to push their luck in terms of combinations, but overall quite distinctive. Mixed drinks are excellent, including the margarita with tamarind. I also ordered out food during a snow storm, and it proved to be a quite unusual carryout option."

Everything I come to this
restaurant I am never disappointed. Always a delight to come here I will continue to tell my friends."
Dined on 3/9/2014
Always good. Can count on this
place to be food for bringing out of town guests who want Indian and unusual food. Yet not expensive. Always had goof service as well."
Dined on 3/7/2014
This was our first time dining
here and really enjoyed our meal. We shared the mussel appetizer and it was so delicious that we didn't leave any sauce. We each had the mulligatawny soup (very subtle, light and delicately delicious). My husband had the lamb shank (excellent) and I had the chicken appam, a dish that I've never had (and we eat lots of Indian food as well as cook it at home). The chicken dish was so-so - rather bland. Loved the appam, though - it reminded me of Ethiopian, injera bread. For dessert, my husband had the rice pudding and I had their yogurt dish (can't recall the name but if you like yogurt, it's great). All in all, a great restaurant, location (right outside the Cleveland Park metro)."

Tasty small plates offer a gourmet
take on street food, plus good Tandoori dishes, classic curries vegetarian and meaty. Indique is always a treat. Better ambiance in Cleveland Park than Friendship Heights."

I went with my girlfriend for
dinner here on a Sunday night during Restaurant Week. The food was delicious but the actual waiter was not helpful at all. We arrived early and had phenomenal drinks made by the bartender downstairs. He even allowed us to try parts of the concoction he was whipping up, great service. The waiter was not helpful at all and simply asked us what three courses we wanted and that was it. I have been to Indique before and the wait staff was phenomenal and explained the difference between a lot of different dishes."
Dined on 1/19/2014
The prices at Indique are low
enough and the portions large enough that 2 people can easily share an appetizer, 2 entrees, and a dessert and get out for around $30/person."
Dined on 1/18/2014
The dinner was fantastic and the
service was great. My friend and I never had an empty glass and both of our entrees were delicious."
