Indies is a real gem for all the vegetarians and veg food lovers out there. And even if you are not a big fan of vegetarian food this place has the capability to change your mind!
Indies is a fine dine restaurant, expertising in multicuisine vegetarian delicacies.
Concealed in the lanes of Shakespeare Sarani, the restaurant is easy to locate using the Google Maps. You can use both Rabindra Sadan as well as Maidan Metro Stations. Bus route is not really an option here, and the restaurant also does not provide any car parking. It’s best to get a cab or walk from the nearest metro station.
The ambience is really calm and serene. The dim lights and comfortable sofas makes you feel cozy and relaxed. Seating capacity is about 30-35 at a time. Decor is minimal yet extremely classy.
Now coming to the food, we started off with the
Turkish Borek, it is basically baked filled pastries made of a thin flaky dough. The super thin phyllo sheets are sticked to one another with a mixture of yogurt, eggs and olive oil. The filling is spread in the middle of layers. The stuffing was a bit bland, but the pastry gave it a nice crunch. It was served with a yellow dip and tomato salsa, which went really well with the dish.
Next we opted for the Paneer Angara. This dish had a wonderful theatrical pleasure. It was flambeed in front of our eyes using a blow torch. The paneer pieces were coated in a spicy tomato based marinade and it was super sucullent.
We then tried the Paneer Tikka pizza, the base was thin and soft, it was topped with ample amount of cheese, veggies and chunks of panner Tikka. The pizza was extremely flavourful and tasty.
We also didn’t wanted to miss the delactable Indian main courses. So we ordered Shaam Savera. It was a very innovative dish. The paneer play hide and seek inside the spinach koftas, cooked in a rich and creamy tomato based gravy. It went really well with the Cheese Chilly naan. The naan was loaded with cheese and it tasted delicious just by itself.
We also tried the Paneer butter Masala, which is cottage cheese cooked in a luscious gravy made with lots of butter, cream and rich Indian spices.
We gulped all of these down with two mocktails – Russian Mojito and Virgin Mojito both were very refreshing.
We ended our meal on a sweet note with the all time favourite Sizzling Brownie. A hot brownie topped with a scoop of vanilla icecream on a hot sizzler plate, and then warm chocolate sauce is poured over it to get the sizzling effect. Definitely you can imagine the heavenly taste.
We were really impressed with the quality and the quantity of the food.
The staffs are polite and hospitable. Overall we were really satisfied with our dining experience at Indies. Weather you are a vegetarian or not, you can definitely try out this place with your family or friends and have great time.
