The dinner that my partner and I had at IndeBlue was the best meal that I have had this year, or perhaps in several years. The tasting menu featured ample portions of delicious and surprising food - the brussel sprouts with Indian spicing and burrata cheese was my personal favorite. The double-friend cauliflower was crispy and delicious, as were the tandoori shrimp, the lamb vindaloo, and everything, really. And the service was even better. Our server, whose name I didn't catch (he has long hair and is a hiker) was attentive and friendly, and happy to tell us about the history of the restaurant - many of the fusion items on the menu reflect the many places in the world that the owner/chef has lived. If this were a city with a Michelin guide, I am confident that this would be a two star restaurant, and the price, including a bottle of fine prosecco, an additional drink, and a deservedly generous tip was under 200 dollars.

Probably due to the worries about the virus the restaurant was mostly empty at 1:00 PM. for lunch. We got excellent and friendly service from the waiter who had a bit of a bond with one of the diners as they shared a name.

We all had a tasting talis which is a bargain at $16. It allows you to choose entrees and sauces and come with rice, dal, flaky naan, a samosa and dessert. I had also ordered a breadbaket which contains a number of the delicious types of naans served in the restaurant. I had expected that my nephew would take most of it home, but it was gone very early in the meal. And everyone was full after the talis sampler. For lunch it is the right amount of food

The focus in the tastefully decorated dining room is a wall sized golden tapestry which is a great backdrop for photos if you are there fo a special occasion. I have been here a number of times and is a first choice for a place to take guests who like a little spice in their life and their food, and who like it served with care and attention

I loved this place when it was in Collingswood,N.J. but alas they closed last year. Very good food but pretty noisy. Loved the choices and the cocktail menu is very accessible.

Indieblue never disappoints. The food, while not strictly traditional Indian food, is novel, well prepared and tasty. Josh our server was friendly and helpful.

The food was undoubtedly good, but the servers made the whole experience uncomfortable. Had two servers for reasons unknown and kept bothering us while we did nothing. The first server kept checking up on us every 5 minutes asking if we can order when it wasn't even busy. It felt like she was rushing us out. Again we ordered an entree and sides for each of us and it was not busy. Halfway through, a second server came by and asked if we were done. I don't understand if it's because we look young or because we look Asian. But this is an Indian restuarant and Indians are Asian. At the end, we didn't even stay for an hour for dinner. We barely ate our food because it felt so uncomfortable. Such a shame because I was very excited to try their food.

We enjoyed our waiter and his knowledge of the dishes. We tried Brunch and was surprised at the choices. Recommend making a reservation. We arrived with our reservation when Indeblue opened on Sunday and within an hour the place full!!

A surprise like no other for 2 foodies happened to be of Indian descent. Philadelphia has had Indian restaurants galore and they have all failed to impress us. IndeBlu was very special. The ambience was great but the food was simply amazing and so was the service.

We ordered the tasting menu and it was a good call. The combination of Indian food with an European flair made this a unique restaurant. The chicken and lamb we had ordered were tender and cooked at the right levels. Different dishes cooked at appropriate temperatures and they catered the spice level to our level which is higher than normal. The desserts are very unique with the western blend to the traditional recipes.

I have written over 300 reviews for restaurants and there were only 2 other Indian restaurants I had given 5 stars to and IndeBlu would be the third one.

This is not a restaurant for people who wanna shovel Indian food. It's about quality, unique tastes and incredible service. Kudos

IndeBlue is an absolute gem; one of those rare places where everything clicks and is consistently spot-on: the food, the people and service, the ambiance! We've been coming to IndeBlue for many years and as great as it has been, it only gets better! Josh —always a warm gracious host and our waiter, Bennet, —just superb! His knowledge and thoroughly engaging enthusiasm for the foods never disappoints. The entire operation runs so smoothly and evenly, that it makes for a meal/occasion to remember…and talk about!

The crispy spinach chaat —an absolute delight, the samundri —a unique and special dish! Time and again, inedible consitiantly excellent! And we're so glad they brought back the stuffed long hot peppers!

Great food, nice atmosphere. We did the chef tasting menu and portions were kind of small for the price. If this is a tapas place that's on me for not knowing. Overall enjoyed the experience. Definitely recommend to those who are fans of Indian food or want to try a few dishes.

IndeBlue never fails to impress. We went for our 5th Anniversary and did the tasting menu (which is our usual choice here). It was decadent the whole way through. We had our all time favorite, the Sea Bass Vindaloo and the Lamb Laal Maas, both of which were delicious. Highly recommend the scallop appetizer and the sampler for dessert- both the banana one and the chocolate one were to die for. Our server was attentive throughout the meal and they sent out a nice celebration surprise at the end.
