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 **

    Had a good meal. Standard Indian food, nothing special. We in Capitol Hill, so we wouldn't come back because it wasn't anything special, but if we lived nearby, we probably would. The inside decor and ambiance was cute. Service was not terrible, but rather inattentive and slow.

    Better food than most, though your dish will reliably include a bit more oil than is optimal. Always excellent service. Salmon sliders are a top neighborhood appetizer. Tables slightly too close together along the big wall upstairs -- ask for one overlooking the 2-story entry.

    The food was very good, and importantly they were very accommodating to my friend who had a broken leg. They seated us up front. As requested. Gave us space for her "scooter". Did not rush us and were very polite. It is very attractive and not too noisy. We will return.

    I've dined here many times, and was less and less impressed each time...until last night! Best meal I've had here, hands down. Is the chef new? Excellent aloo chole and two specials: spicy chicken "tacos" that had a perfect kick, and the best okra I've had in life. A tamarind margarita (which is there one thing that's been consistently good) topped it off. Definitely will be back!

  • Just not very good
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010VIP
    Dined on 9/4/2013
    We were excited to find an Indian restaurant in DC with a good to excellent rating. Unfortunately, having been fortunate enough to dine on exceptional Indian fare at places like Nawab in Williamsburg and Newport News, we must respectfully disagree with many reviewers regarding food quality. While the protein portion of the meal was fine - fine, not good or great - everything else simply was bland and not in keeping with fresh and authentic Indian food. For instance, something as simple as Naan - awful - bland and tasteless. Accompanies to the naan - indiscernible. Service was good. Overall - no need for another visit. .

    The Food was incredible. Each taste was savory and filled with flavor. I strongly recommend this restaurant for great tasting Indian cuisine. Its best to get there by Metro since the Cleveland Park stop is literally right in front of it. Parking in that area was hard to come by (on a Wednesday). No matter how you can get there...get there! The food is worth it.

    Three of our family members thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Indique. We were seated at a table with a direct view of the activities of Connecticut Ave. The service was above par, Kimberly was excellent, very attentive, knowledgeable & very helpful. The food was exquisite in appearance & taste & the portions were plentiful enough that we had left-overs to enjoy the next day. The pricing wasn't painful, especially for D.C. We will definitely be back, particilarly the family member who lives within walking distance.

    My wife and I celebrated our three year anniversary at Indianique, and it was a special time there. Suddhir Kumar went out of his way to create a special table for us to include two glasses of champagne and two appetizers on the house. When we were greeted at the door, they made us feel very special, like VIP's which was a nice touch to the beginning of our evening. The flowers I had ordered for my table were already nicely placed, and in all appearances it seemed we had the best table in the restaurant. Not to mention how great the food was which my wife particularly enjoyed very much. The service again, was excellent. Definitely on our "Come Again" list of restaurants for Indian food. I highly recommend this restaurant again.

    I've been coming to Indique for years and they are always good. Their menu doesn't change much but you can always find something delicious. I recommend the Vegetable Samosas and anything on their tandoori oven section. My one complaint is that this last time I went (5/2013) they seem to have changed the makeup of their Daal. Before it was a delicious mix of brown lentils and spices but they have changed to a thinner mix of yellow lentils that is not nearly as tasty. With that small complaint, it is not enough to downgrade them. I will be back again soon.

    Visited based on recommendations of strangers. Menu is quite extensive and took us some some to pick out exactly what we wanted to try. We both stuck with vegetarian (quite easy) and items we had had elsewhere. The uthappan and dosas were much more delicate than I've had elsewhere and the biryani huge and well spiced without the blunt hot. A good range of chutneys from mild to hot to try. Go hungry as we took home two leftover meals from our appetizer/entree combo. As mentioned elsewhere, service is not as attentive as some would, but given my company, I wasn't in a hurry to be interrupted or rushed.

    This used to be a first-class Indian restaurant, but it has dropped a notch or two. The food was good, but not great. The decor has gotten shabby, particularly upstairs. I ordered tandoori salmon; the salmon was adequate but dry. We did have very good vegetable samosas as an appetizer. It remains relatively inexpensive, however, so it's still a pretty good value.

    I've been an Indique fan, but my visit last Friday was disappointing. The restaurant has expanded and was crowded. But the quality of food diminished. Salmon sliders dry as a bone; mussels unappetizing looking and again overcooked. I sent them back,was not interested in anything else and did not ask that thy be taken off my bill. I just asked for an order of Paratha to have something to eat. It never arrived. I'd think three times before going back

    I used to like this place a lot but had not gone back in a while and was terribly disappointed. We waited for a long time while the restaurant was almost empty, only to get disappointing food that was barely warm. Even after telling the waiter and the manager that our food was barely warm, it came back to our table the same temperature! I am not going back.
