About

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.

I went there for the Indique special bottomless brunch with 20 of my friends and the service was superb. The items were brought to us in time and the food was delicious. I especially recommend the duo of chaats, achari tacos, chicken tikka masla, cookie butter dosa and the rum mango lassi. The Rum Lassi was special to Indique and the perfect bottomless brunch drink. Make bookings ahead of time as they are very busy during the weekends and go for the unlimited food platter and the bottomless drinks! A very good deal indeed!

Went for end of Restaurant week. We were seated right by the door- a lot of drafts when people came in and out! Service was great, and food was good, but maybe a bit subpar for the price. Solid 4 I think.

Go for the street food. Entrees were OK, but portions were on the less generous side. Their brunch looks great and return for that.

Food here is really good - solid indian food with lots of flavour. Their brunch deals are very affordable compared to other unlimited buffets/ bottomless deals. Well worth it!

We went to Indique to celebrate my boyfriends 30th birthday. It was delicious! As a vegan with celiacs dining out can be hard and navigating a menu and explaining dietary restrictions to wait staff can be a nightmare. That was not the case here, the menu was so clearly marked and there were a fair number of items that were both GF and V so that we could share our entrees and have a lovely meal together.

Get the morel stew....you will not regret it.

The Puchka shot was awesome! Having pictures and spice level next to the entree description would really help the diners as this restaurant menu has a lot of innovative dishes which people are not familiar with. I observed, lot of people asking the waiters what is the dish served on the next table and then wanting to try it.

The vegetarian options are very basic and regular. Would love to see innovative vegetarian version of the dishes ( like Puchka Shot) served here.

After having a wonderful experience at Indique, I went back for more. Although the servers were courteous, and the food good, I was disappointed by the experience. We had a 6:30 reservation, and were seated promptly. Our server came by to answer questions about the menu and to take drink and appetizer orders. By the time the drinks arrived we were ready to place our order for the meal. And then the waiting began--first for the appetizers and then for the entrees and sides. People came to the tables around us, were served, and some had completed their meals before we finally received our entrees. We decided to be proactive, and approached our waiter and a restaurant host on three occasions to inquire about when we might expect our food. We waited well over an hour (probably closer to two) for our food; one of the appetizers never arrived! We were offered a complimentary dessert and the missing appetizer was removed from the bill. The company was good and the food, once it finally arrived, was tasty, but not enough to overcome frustration from the inordinate delay in service. We arrived at 6:30, and the restaurant was closing (10 p.m.) by the time we completed our meal.

Our waiter was terrific and knew the menu and cocktails very well. He recommended several items and the ones we tried were all delicious - cauliflower chiles and pork belly aps - had okra and veggie stew for dinner - all excellently prepared. The version of margarita on their cocktail list was also quite refreshing. Thanks for a good evening!

The vegetable/pastry Samosa Chaat was very tasty as an appetizer. (split with friend)
The salmon crusted with coconut had good sauce flavor, but the salmon itself was a bit tasteless...as if it were farm raised:(
The mango rice pudding was runny and disappointing. (suggest you offer a coconut icing yellow cake dessert for those celebrating birthdays, rather than the cheese cake.)
The staff was very pleasant, the ambient good, nice decor, and easy to hear my friend (*!*).
Felt the vegan main dishes were pricy... for the offerings.
This was my first time and a birthday celebration.

Came here with a family member for unlimited plates weekend brunch and just had to come back! The price is definitely worth it for the incredible food. Meet all my expectations for taste, variety, and presentation. Service was great. And it wasn't loss at all, making it perfect to catch up with some friends.

Took a very long time to order and receive our food. Several of the dishes did not deliver, though the shepherds pie, biryani, samosa chaat and the chicken tacos were good. The service staff started uncomfortably cleaning up while we were waiting to get our check and leave, to the point where they were effectively asking us to get out of the way. The temperature control wasn't ideal; it was pretty cold. And the restrooms were not at all kept up during service.

Interesting space, great service, and a slightly different take on your usual Indian restaurant fare. The classics are there too of course, but feel free to branch out and try something you wouldn't normally have the chance to get.

Food was not good. Especially what the owners say from my hometown doesn't taste 1% authentic as all you can taste is a cream sauce. In addition the service was poor. They got appetizers and entree together and no one stopped by to ask for water or check on the food. If that was not enough the waiters got into an argument in front of us

We really enjoyed our dinner at Indique. It was our first time at the restaurant - we went to see Zoo Lights and wanted to eat in the neighborhood. We had a reservation but had to wait 45 minutes to get seated - the place was jammed! However, we did not mind the wait, as it was nice and warm inside. The food was very good, different from typical Indian restaurants we usually frequent. We will definitely return.

Indique has consistently served great good at exceptional levels of service since I first went there in 2003. I strongly recommend it. They even catered our wedding, and delivered the same high quality food and top-notch service to our 200 odd guests. We keep going back and are amazed at how they creatively re-invent their menu.

Surprise! an Indian brunch. Great service, great selection of vegetable and potato dishes. Watch for the spicy ones if you aren't used to Indian cuisine. Small plate portions are the rule here. There is a $20 all-you-can-order option (which cannot be matched anywhere else I have been in the area). The Masala omelet is delicious.

The service was wonderful. Our server was helpful in describing and recommending menu items. The food was delicious and the decor a welcome change from the sparse and industrial look. Members of our party were pleased to be able to have a conversation and not be hoarse when we left the restaurant.
