I am gluten and dairy intolerant so absolutely love this place. It's such a relief to know you are eating safely. This is the first time we've been for a while and I have to say that the standard is even higher than before. Every dish was delicious and beautifully presented. Can't wait to go back and try the tasting menu.

Wanted a pre theatre dinner and found this online. Good and not so good reviews on trip advisor but good reviews won through! Very close to the Aldwych Theatre. Whole experience was good from arriving, being seated, ordering and eating. Service was attentive and covid safe. We had the pre theatre menu which offered a good choice. Didn’t feel rushed although on restricted time. Good to do some people watching over the bar area below. Enjoyable experience and would happily go back.

My sirloin steak was over cooked, I asked for medium rare to rare and it came out medium, albeit the flavour was nice it was over cooked.

The desserts were bland and lacking in flavour.

However, we cannot fault the service. The waitresses were very accommodating for my fiancée’s dietary needs.

Was grateful that they were able to make substitutions as I don't eat eat & can't eat soya. Definitely the top celiac-friendly restaurant I've been to.

It was my Birthday, and it was very nice of the restaurant to bring a browny with a candle at the end of our lunch. I wasn’t the biggest fan of British roast, although the soup for the starter was very nice.

Indigo was phenomenal. It has a dedicated gluten-free menu, but you wouldn't know it based on how good the food is. The service is equally exceptional.
Indigo's unique butter served with the gluten-free bread is the best butter I have ever had. I will surely return to Indigo on my next trip to London.

Excellent service. Considered dishes, well presented. Calm surroundings amongst hubbub of west end. We're not gluten or dairy free - but the menu was. Absence of both was not noticeable in the food we ate. Noted as a recommendation for coeliac friends.

Such a pleasure to be able to visit a restaurant with my (coeliac) wife and not be offered the book of shame (allergens list) or something from the menu where we can remove this or that.

Wonderful experience, food was great, ambience was spot on and the service was faultless, the guy waiting on our table was just the best!

Restaurant situated on the 1st floor above a busy bar , to be fair the noise level was not a problem.
Service and ambiance was good , if I could criticise I would put at least one more starter and one more dessert on the menu.
The halibut was the best I have ever had, would throughly recommend.

Early December 2021 visit so beginning to liven up for Xmas. Were taken to our table - waited 15 minutes before anyone brought us a menu or even came for drinks. Starters were a bit average - pumpkin veloute was ok but nothing special and the seafood omelette was so undercooked it got sent back and far too big for a starter - more like a brunch and if anything it spoiled my enjoyment of the mains rather than enhancing it. I'd pre-empted by asking if the smoked salmon was available as a starter (it's on the evening menu so shouldn't have been difficult and how difficult is it to rustle up a plate of smoke salmon in a London restaurant) - "if its not on the menu its not available" came the reply. Not even the pretence of 'checking with the chef'. Main course and dessert were very good although service was again a bit slack and the waiter even argued with me when I tried to order an extra side - 'you don't need it with the roast'. We've been here before (let's face it if you're DF & GF when you find a place you don't let it go) and had better experiences. Like all restaurants they are struggling with covid issues (particularly with staff) but it's really started to show and I'd expected better for a £300 bill.

Very high quality festive afternoon tea in Indigo, with different from the norm delicacies. This made it more interesting for my best friend & me who have enjoyed their Charlie & the Chocolate Factory afternoon tea several times before and fancied a change. Service was a tad slow, we think due to lack of staff, but it didn’t spoil the experience. Highly recommend.

All GF, DF and Delicious. Allows for a totally relaxing meal without having to check every plate. And the food, the flavours are no compromise.
I understand why they chose to pair with English wines but they are inferior, insipid and can’t stand up to the excellent food. In particular the Pinot noir was a washout beside the beef.
