This friendly and funky place is best visited when the weather is warm enough to sit outside on its expansive patio, though there are a handful of tables inside as well. While inside, you can enjoy the Bollywood dance videos playing on the TV and scrawl a message in sharpie on the walls. You order inside, take a 18579220_10155342329988011_1744914738_nnumber and then wait. The food does sometimes take a while (20+ minutes) to come out, but that’s because it’s made fresh. Trust me, it’s well worth it. The spicy masala chicken is especially good, but you really can’t go wrong with anything here. The food is definitely heavy on the ghee (clarified butter) but that’s just part of what makes it so tasty. And please do pair your food with a Kingfisher, either from the fridge inside, or from the bar outside that’s open when the weather’s warm. Friendly service rounds out what is all-around a gem of a place.

Indigo is located at 243 K Street NE.
