The Food was really good and interesting. They had many gluten free and vegan choices which I appreciated. But we waited 20 minutes until someone took our order. When we arrived we were the 5th table in the place. The guy (who must have been the owner) was answering phones, seating people, taking orders and making drinks while the people dressed as servers 3-4 of them were only bringing out the food and after telling them we were ready to order said our server would be over shortly. Poorly managed.

We arrived early before our reservation and found it quiet for a Friday night at 6pm. We sat alone at the bar after seeing their window advertisement for happy hour and were greeted by the Maitre D who at the time seemed like the only employee there serving as host, bartender, and waiter. He told us the happy hour drink special was BOGO free! That was a great deal and my date and I took advantage with the (not so strong) cocktails. To pair with the drinks we got an open faced samosa that arrived looking like a boat filled with the Indian spices and potato filling- we had to pick it up to eat it! We eventually sat down at a nice corner window table and ordered the lamb and cheese croquettes- more lamb than we expected- it was tasty! And a chicken and lamb dish, and finally creme brûlée for dessert. The highlight of our meal was definitely the samosa. We did find it quite pricey for the extras, though: $10 for a basket of naan and $7 for a palm size serving of creme brûlée and it was a bit odd that it seemed like the manager was the only employee on a Friday night! Overall a good dining experience and will return to try their other dishes !

I will revisit this restaurant in the future. Food was absolutely great. Service was attentive and on time. Staff were friendly and accomodating. Female owner was extremely sweet and made time to speak with each table. Ambience was on point and temperature in the restaurant was perfect even though it was 30 degrees outside. Wonderful and well-run establishment.

I went to Indigma with my husband before a show at the Hippodrome. I wanted to go to a restaurant with both meat and vegetarian/vegan options. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the menu is labeled with vegan options, and lots of them. The food and service were outstanding. It's Indian, but not your usual fare, especially in the presentation. Also,they have meat, veggie and vegan platters with samples of different dishes, but unfortunately, they don't offer those on weekends. We'll definitely be back to try those!

I've had delicious meals here and tonight I was disappointed in my entree and was never given the opportunity to share that with the team. The service here tends to be low key but accommodating and attentive enough, but tonight we waited an unusually long time for our check. I'll return again because I've had such great experiences in the past.

We went to Indigma for a birthday dinner date. We expected a plated entree menu, but they were offering a dinner buffet instead. There were upsides and downsides to the buffet. We got to try a variety of foods. But the food was not hot. All in all, it was a good experience. We enjoyed ourselves, and every member of the staff was friendly.

Disappointing. This was a special birthday celebration and when I called the restaurant regarding the special tag on open table the person said it was for the fixed price meal offering and that it was still possible to order from the menu so I made the reservation. After driving an hour to get to the restaurant, the host said that they only had a buffet and if that was not acceptable we could try someplace else. We stayed because it was a Saturday night and no alternative place to go. We were also informed that the full service bar was only serving wine or beer. Food was okay, service slow. Not returning. Might have been different if I had been informed of the buffet when I spoke to the restaurant beforehand.

4 of us went on a Saturday during restaurant week. We got there right at 5 when they opened, service was excellent, and the restaurant was fairly quiet the whole time we were there. The food and drinks were all very good. Also, happy hour on drinks between 5-7. I would definitely go back and I'm wishing I had some leftovers!

My companion was gluten and dairy intolerant and the waiter took these into account. He also couldn't decide between the avocado vindaloo and the mango shrimp and the waiter suggested what if "we did a mango shrimp vindaloo for you". He was ecstatic. I had the vegetarian 8 dish sample. It was amazing. It was everything I was looking for. Small versions of 8 different dishes!!

We arrived about 7 minutes before our reservation and the host, which I believe was also the manager, said that we were a little early and that we had to wait. It wasn't crowded at all in there so I didn't understand why we had to wait. When we finally got seated, it took a while for the waiter, who was the same guy that sat us, to come and take our order. We were there for restaurant week. We ordered the watermelon lassi for our drink. If anyone knows lassi, it typically comes in mango flavor and it is a thick creamy shake-like drink. We decided to try a different flavor so we ordered watermelon but the texture was totally off. It was as if they took fresh watermelon pieces and put it in a blender with ice. It was very watery and all you could taste were the bits of watermelon. We then placed our order and order all 3 courses at one time. It took about 20 minutes to receive our apps. We ordered the samosa chaat and the deep fried vegetables. They were both really good. After that, we waited about another 45 minutes to receive our entrees. We ordered the curried shrimp and curried vegetables. They were ok. Nothing to rave about. Finally we received our dessert. We ordered rice pudding and Rasmalayi. Those were both really good. We were also given a complimentary dessert which was supposed to be chocolate covered coconut. However, it was frozen solid and not edible at all. They packed it to go for us. Overall it was an ok experience. It would have been better if the service didn't take so long. The food runners were very friendly.

I took my partner here for our 2 year anniversary and it was AMAZING! The service was fantastic, the bottle of wine that we had was AWESOME and the food... I can't say enough about the food. My partner is vegan so going out isn't always as easy for us, but the vegan options were easy to find and there were more than enough choices in entrees, appetizers, sides, and dessert.
The food was SO good I asked to speak to the chef... only to find that he had been serving us the entire time.. such a nice guy. We were given glasses of champagne to celebrate our love and we were sent on our way.

Thank you for starting off my night very well.

My Sri Lankan/American friend and I enjoyed a lovely dinner, pre-purchased via Groupon. We enjoyed a 4 course meal for two, and were treated extremely well by the owner and staff.
I am not accustomed to an Indian palate, but enjoyed the food recommended by my guest who knew what he was ordering! I don't think it would be difficult to order via the menu had I been there with someone else, however. Our food was delicious and my Sri Lankan friend was delighted with Indigma!

The service was terrific. The owner actually went outside to save me a parking spot on the street in front of his restaurant when I went to get my car from a side street. Get there at exactly 6 pm when the street parking is free, it fills up very fast with locals for overnight parking. The food was delicious and we picked some spicy dishes. I would suggest you get some "Lassi" as it helps quell the spiciness. (It is a yogurt fruit drink) The rosemary naan bread was delicious as was the broccoli fig soup. The menu is super extensive so it will take some time to go through it. This is an excellent restaurant and one of the best values in Baltimore.

This was our second visit to Indigma. We dined prior to attending Spotlighter's theater, which happens to be right around the corner! I love the venue, in an old Victorian house with super-high ceilings, marble entrance and major staircase. The colors in the dining room are gorgeous - a muted magenta with a peach ceiling and orange-yellow carved crown molding. Food is delicious, lots of options, including a prix fixe dinner for $32. I did the prix fixe and had Coconut Spinach soup, Lamb Saag and rice pudding. All yummy! My husband had the lettuce cups and the lamb with acorn squash. Staff is lovely, especially the owners. They are very attentive. There is construction on their corner, and the building is shrouded in scaffolding and canvas, but once you get inside it is delightful!

Flavorful (and plentiful) dishes, just the right amount of spice (but I like it on the hotter side), and perfect service - neither absent nor intrusive.
