There’s a reason why Indeblue ranks as one of Philadelphia is top restaurants. The reason is the innovative approach to their cuisine…melding modern and traditional Indian influences.
My family and I go here often and we have never been disappointed. On this past visit we were once again wowed by the monthly specials including an amazing chicken soup.
It’s hard not to fall back on some of the old favorites like the spicy cauliflower and the spinach chat... which I actually found out was invented by the owner, Chef Rakesh Ramola. Other Indian restaurants have now included it on their menus...Along with fish tacos, another original creation on this fusion menu.
My daughter and I could not resist the poutine fries which were topped with shredded lamb, cheese curds, and cheddar cheese...sort of like an Indian version of disco fries.My son also had a lamb dish which came with Indian bread and assortment of delicious sauces as toppings.
My main entrée was an Indian inspired seafood risotto. It was loaded with calamari,shrimp and scallops.
My wife would not let us leave without ordering dessert. I had a chocolatey pot Dr creme...my daughter had a spiralized pear that was deep-fried and served with a rose water drizzle. My wife had mango sorbet.
The service is always friendly and accommodating. They even let me have a drink that I created myself… It was a mango lassi on ice with spiced rum floated on top. Delicious and refreshing. We can’t wait to go back. The prices are very reasonable and they have an outstanding brunch that they serve both on Saturdays and Sundays. My daughter is graduating college and we are looking to have a gathering here. We cannot wait to return. Thank you Chef Ramola.

This is the best of Indian food in Philly and the service is tops! One caveat...the greeter upon arrival is not very welcoming. She showed us to the worst table and said we couldn't be moved since a large party was expected. The table for two is adjacent to the bar. It is very loud and you are frequently bumped into as the tables are very close to one another.

My companion and I were seated around 6:00 p.m., the time we had reserved. The restaurant was nearly empty, and so we had excellent service with a lot of attention paid to our needs. My companion had a cocktail to start off...I don't remember what it was, but she loved it...and then we split four small plates. All were delicious; we polished them all off. Although small, the four were substantial enough that we were satisfied. We sat and talked for a little while after we finished eating, and our server brought us each a delicious chai tea, gratis. That put a lovely ending to a delightful meal.

I normally don’t write reviews but I just had to do this. This restaurant is simply amazing!! Bennett whom I was fortunate to have as waiter and Lori who also was a waitress, and the entire staff were so welcoming, loving and amazing!! Bennett suggested food to try and every one of his choice was wonderful! The food was exquisite - the sea bass, lamb chops, kale chaat, goat mirchi and chai absolutely tasty and beautifuly balanced flavors. This is a gem of a place! Thank you Bennet, Lori, the talented chef and everyone at IndieBlue! You rock!!

Our first trip to Indie Blue and we had a truly amazing meal! We tried the tasting menu, giving us a chance to explore the incredible menu choices. Great creative dishes with traditional flavors prepared with hints of French, Italian and Asian cuisine. Had terrific cocktails from a large selection of options. The service was really good, attentive and personable. It was fun to hear how excited the servers were about the menu and meals, commenting on personal favorites and sharing information about the chef’s background and culinary style. Decor soothing and classy!

Went for Brunch, be warned the Sunday Lunch menu has a "limited" Indian food menu and has a more traditional breakfast \ Brunch menu for most of the period of time. We hit the spinach, the cauliflower and the chicken tika skewers and they were all excellent. Attentive wait staff, and good service. Will have to come back for Dinner and see the full menu.

Wife and I spent many years in DC and we miss the weekend bottomless brunch scene. Liked the idea of an Indian inspired brunch so made a reservation. The food was impeccable; very well done. Great presentation and flavor. Fairly quick from kitchen to table. The mimosas did what they were supposed to do (if you prefer sweet, go w/ the “Rose”; if you like tart, go with “Classic”). The venue is relatively small and seating is a tight. Overall, great ambiance, food, and drink. Highly recommend!

Amazing. Blown away. Perfection. From the food to the service to the ambiance- start to finish it was heaven. Our server Lori put the whole experience over the top. She made exceptional recommendations and was the perfect blend of engaged without being overbearing. The chai is beyond anything you’ve ever had. The tandoori platter was incredible. Makhani- best we’ve ever had. Naan was perfect. Dessert was mind blowing. I literally would not change a single thing. In the top three greatest dining experience of my life.

We have been to IndeBlue countless times but this was our first time for brunch. The place, as usual, was extremely lively and we knew we were in for a great meal and pleasant time.
We started off with the maharajah cheeseboard, a rose mimosa for me and beer for my husband. This cheeseboard was extensive and quite good with a variety of accompaniments. We also ordered the cauliflower appetizer, which was tasty as usual. For our meals I ordered the spicy chicken and waffles and my husband ordered Mahkani chicken which is his all-time favorite. I thought the breading on my chicken could have been more flavorful, but the dish itself was quite good. Another fine meal at IndeBlue

IndeBlue is gem as it provides the experience of Indian cuisine in more modern way instead of traditional Indian cuisine presentation. The menu options are excellent and each one we ordered exceeded our expectations. The service is very friendly. The decor is very charming.

The service and food was top notch! My son surprised me by giving me $20 to add to the 25% tip I was already giving our waitress Laura. We had the best conversation with her. A sweet person. My kids were impressed. She cried when we gave her the tip. This is now one of our favorite restaurants.

Food was really really good but the staff was truly exceptional. Not in your face at all, checked in the perfect amount. So friendly and helpful. We were three for dinner but wanted to split some things and they were helpful in our careful (and vegetarian) and meticulous order planning. Very patient haha.
