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 **

    I went to Indique last year and thought the food was great! Unfortuneatley, a year later the quality of the food and the service have gone down hill. I would pick another Indian resturant next time.

    We have brought friends with us often to Indique and love the food and the ambiance. This time the experience was almost ruined due to a large party at the next table. The noise level in the dining room was so high that my ears hurt and I couldn't enjoy a conversation with my companions. Once the the group left (thankfully, before we did) and the room thinned out a bit, we were able to relax, talk over our meal and enjoy the evening.

    The dining area is not fit for for small children. The noise carries tremendously and interferes with the rights of other diners. In my opinion, they should not be allowed. Otherwise, it was a good experience, and I would go back again.

    Lovely atmosphere, caring wait-staff, initeresting food. I am not a great fan of Indian food because I am not familiar enough with it. I like to go with friends who know more about the food than I do (which I did this time) and learn what I might like. This is a great place for such learning. What I had was delicious.

    Indique was very nice. I'm very cheap, but was okay with paying about $70 for dinner for two. Indique has great food and a nice view overlooking the balcony from the second floor. Outdoor balcony is ideal for a romantic dinner, but there are only a few tables outside on the second level. Two Thumbs up!!!

    Love Indique - always enjoy the food. This time, though, the service was a bit slow and inattentive. We were seated outside and sometimes felt as though we were an after thought. We had to ask several times to get our order of naan - finally came towards the end of the meal. We had 2 or 3 different people tending to our table, but they didn't seem to be communicating with one another and we couldn't tell who our lead server was. But as always, the food was great.

    The food was good, especially the appetizers. My tandoori lamb chops were gristly and not very crisp. The service was poor; the (Chinese) waiter seemed distracted and came to our table only when called. He wasn't overly busy; he seemed to wait at the end of the room, doing little. Even our food was brought by someone else.

    Indique not only has a fantastic atmosphere and inviting wine selection, for it also has an oustanding menu. Taste if of course key when eating out and Indique is completely satisfying and delicious. Most Indian food restuarants in DC pale in comparison to the fusion of tastes this restaurant maintains. The Restaurant also has a quaint balcony fit for a private dinner of two and it overlooks Cleveland Park. The staff is polite and they allow you to enjoy your meal without pestering you or rushing your experience. Overall Indique is agreat find!

    As always, the food at Indique was delicious. The breads are always my favorite thing-fabulous naans, kulchas, etc...One problem; the restaurant has gotten very rundown looking. The bathroom was dirty and had towels thrown everywhere. The carpet looked unkempt. One toilet for such a large restaurant is simply NOT enough.

    Very nicely done, fairly authentic Indian cuisine (mini-dhosa seemed a bit flat in flavor). Very flavorful and subtle sauces. Nice selection of spicy and not so spicy dishes with accurate descriptions provided for each dish. Very convenient after spending late afternoon at the National Zoo and easy to get back into DC from the Metro right outside their front door.
