Heard about indigo years back while staying in delhi. When we shifted to mumbai 6 months back, indigo was on our list. We decided to explore this chain thru breakfast first and then into a lunch or dinner.

The guys serving food were good when it came to serving food.

When it came to selling merchandize they had no urge. In fact when I took interest in a product that was almost double my food bill, they were having non excited faces, ‘Lena hai to Le lo, nahi to Kat lo’ look. I assume they do not get commission on sales or too little commission to even bother to pitch a sake. Wierd I must say.

Detailed description – in case u hv the time to NJOY reading.

Pineapple, pear, chia seeds, mint Pineapple, mint & basil drink had a great balance of sweet and sour. It was a thick pulpy juice with chia seeds adding a unique texture. Loved sipping on this. Rate it 4.5/5

Eggs benny with butter poached Lobster, confit tomatoes and hollandaise was awesome. The bun was perfectly baked – crisp outside and soft in the middle.

The lobster had excellent flavours and taste, it was fresh and very good. Eggs used were organic ( not the boring poultry kinds) and the sauce was just YUMM. Overall it was a joy to feast on this. Rate it 4.75/5

Eggs benny with slow cooked pork belly, caramel onions and bearnaise sauce was just too good. The porkbelly melted in the mouth like marshmallows.

The crab cake was outstanding. It had full blown flavours of crab and had the sweetish tinge that is natural to crab meat.

For dessert we had Pecan pie. It was outstanding. The crust was super crisp yet moist. The pecan nuts were crunchy. The pie crust had a tinge of salt to balance the sweetness. Lovely sauce. Rate it 4.5/5
