About 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.

We decided to meet outside Indique for a friend gathering and had a nice relaxing time on the summers evening.
The service was attentive and patient, the food well prepared and enjoyable.
The only problem we had was the firehouse is next-door so if you sit outside you'll just have to get used to it.

Another successful return visit for us. Chatted with one of the owners. Great Kerala fish curry Rogan Josh, Dal and other dishes. Really enjoyable evening with good friends, good food and service. Good value.

But, Indique needs to use their pin pan to avoid rejecting chip and pin cards. Also avoids fraud.

Two friends and I went to Indique for dinner last Friday night. We were a little delayed for our reservation due to metro issues, but the hosts were patient with us and allowed us to change our reservation without any issues. The restaurant was spacious and not overcrowded, but not empty either. All of the staff were very helpful and friendly. We had a lot of questions for our server about the dinner and drink menus and he was very patient and eager to help us pick the best entrees. We ordered a number of street snacks and appetizers (samosa, duo of chaats, puchka shrimp shots, mini appam pancake, and chutney sampler with naan) and an entree (paneer pasanda) for all of us to share, and it was so much food! We were all stuffed by the end of our meal, which came to be below $30/person, drinks included! Very, very good Indian food with good spices and flavor. We were very happy with our meal, especially at such a reasonable price. We will definitely be returning!

Indique is a terrific Indian restaurant in Cleveland Park which we have often visited with uniformly positive results. The latest visit was problematical, not because of the food quality (still very high) but because of the service. Specifically, we ere told, the kitchen has changed menus and it was taking a while to master the new dishes. That was an understatement: we waited over an hour for main dishes to arrive, and when we asked the reason for the unusual delay, we were given the explanation 9by a very well-informed and apologetic waiter) about the changed menu. They will master the new menu undoubtedly, and the restaurant will return to its top rating, but the kitchen needs to master the menu without further ... delays.

I have eaten Indian food at dozens of restaurants including all across India. Indique is by far the best and most interesting food I have experienced outside the subcontinent.

The traditional dishes are expertly prepared with multiple layers of well balanced spices and flavours. Unique to Indique are the creative reinterpretations of Indian street food and other dishes on their small plate menu. These could be a fascinating introduction to Indian food, or a fresh new take on the cuisine for anyone used to seeing the same old standbys reproduced everywhere.

Everything we had was fresh and hot and the spice level manageable for almost anyone.

This is a treasure for local residents and should be a destination for visitors.

It is also literally steps from a subway station.

Frankly, we came to Indique because of the food possibilities for vegetarians and for the convenient location. In fact the food was great and plentiful, politely and ably served. (We had the eggplant dish and cheese and spinach, with naan.) Our table was next to the window overlooking Connecticut Avenue, upstairs in a large but quiet dining room. We three old friends could easily handle our conversation.

Indique was a great place for a quiet meal with friends or family. It is not the new hot-spot, but it is a good restaurant with reasonable prices and tasty food. The service was not great. The waitress was a little awkward, and it took 30 minutes for her to come take our orders. Maybe it was an off night? It wasn't that bad, we just chatted away. If you live nearby and are craving Indian, I would definitely recommend it.

This is a great Indian restaurant, one of the best in DC. The chicken tacos, shrimp varuval, and crab papad rolls are all great starters. My favorite mains include the tandori shrimp, chicken curry Indique, and lamb either rogan josh or vindaloo. Great garlic naan as well! Indique is just a great neighborhood restaurant; casual, not pricey, great food. I've eaten here at least 30 times and never had a bad experience of either food or service. Highly recommend!

When my friend recommended Indique for brunch, I was a little surprised because I had never thought of having Indian food for brunch. But, it was delicious and very reasonably priced!

The brunch price includes bottomless cocktails and three small plates, per person. So my friend and I started with drinks, then selected six plates out of about 19 choices -- about eight each for vegetable and meat, and then three for dessert. My favorite was the Vegetable Samosa Chaat, but the Veg Mini Dosa and the Lamb Shepherd's Pie were also excellent.

For cocktails, they have the usual mimosa, bloody mary and screwdriver, plus a rum mango lassi and a tamarind margarita if you're adventurous. AND, you can switch to a different cocktail if you want to try more than one! I stayed with the rum lassi even though it is fairly filling -- it just tasted so good!

We got there fairly early so it wasn't crowded when we arrived, and they put us upstairs where we had a nice view of the neighborhood. A large party came in about half-way through and amped up the noise a bit, but it wasn't annoying.

Overall, we had a very filling, delicious lunch with several drinks, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We will definitely do this again!

Food was ample but disappointing and of one note (flavor); Chutneys were the best part. Menu promised more than it could deliver--mini-dosa more like a soft crepe than a crispy dosa, for example. $2 or $3 for a single piece of naan seems to be too much. Service was fine. Not likely to return--there are many other choices in the DC area that are better

Food was great but service was VERY slow. The wait staff was attentive but food took forever to come out, which was particularly evident given that we were doing the 3-course restaurant week menu. The wait time between courses was absurd. But overall I'd recommend this restaurant.

There were signs in the window indicating they are hiring most floor staff. I think that may explain why service was a bit slow and awkward. Aside from that, the food was solid and good. Was with a Kerali who said the flavors were as they should be (high praise if you know Indian food)

Definitely give it a try. Make a reservation if you can so you don't have to wait.

We visited Indique for the first time. The place was quite busy with many non-indian clients. the food was exceptionally good, creative and cooked with effort. This is probably the only restaurant that serves "Appam" billed as a "hopper" in the menu. I would recommend the appam and stew to everyone. The appam is much lighter than a dose, thick like a pancake and spongy like injera! The appam was light, fluffy and flavored. The stew looked pale but was very well flavored with lemon grass. The other items we had were good, better than the mill-of-the run and different, The wait staff is mostly spanish speaking and mixed up one of our appetizers. When we pointed this out, in panic, they took both items away - even the appetizer that was ordered - they took it back to the kitchen and then brought the same plate back. He gave us two free papadams to apologize. I had a nice chat with the Chef owner Vinod's son Rahul who informed us that at 10 pm the same night of the Food networks broadcast of Chef Vinod vs Bobby Flay. I wish Indique a long stay in the DC area.

I have eaten here many times. Food and experience has always been good, but this time the service was weak. We had a new waiter who didn't know much about the food or the menu, and he was not adequately backed up. We were pretty much left on our own until we hailed someone to get us what we wanted. Let's hope this is not a trend, bec the food really is quite good, across the entire menu, tho we were disappointed to not try the pumpkin curry soup. They had run out of it by 7.30 pm.

Every dish is extremely flavorful and delicious. The owner, who's name i cant recall , was very accommodating to my group. I even had a friend who had never had Indian before and gave him a Mango Lassi and garlic naan on the house. The curry soup, the goat, the Indian vegetables were all so splendid and literally had our taste bud doing cartwheels! I cant wait to go back.
