Good food, but a little pricey. End of the day it's Indian and there's only so much value in a $30 Indian entree.

They have a very interested cocktail list and I was torn between the Karma Sutra and the Madras Mojito. I decided on the mojito and it was delicious. Made with a guava purée the presentation was not very pleasing, but once you give it a stir all is good. We were served warm naan and lentils while we perused the HRW menu. I decided on the fried okra salad. Wonderfully spicy and fried perfectly! Next up was the Chicken Biryani. Very spicy rice with crunchy pumpkin seeds, chicken chunks, and a hard boiled egg. For dessert, I chose the Chocolate Ginger Tart. Rich and delicious. It has a nice crunchy crust that reminded me of a Heath bar and it was served with a coffee whipped cream that I could eat by the bucket! A few tips: Parking is valet only, but it is complimentary. Also, as of this review the mango mousse DID NOT come with a Grand Marnier cake, even though it was in the description.

The chicken biryani was surprisingly delicious. I recommend this place for its ambience, service and innovative approach to Indian food!

Horrible food. They served overcooked nan 3 times. Service is not good at all. Waiter does not know about Indian food at all.

We had the 5 course tasting menu. The food was good, no doubt about that, but overall for almost $200 we were disappointed. The service, while very friendly, was not trained in how to serve a tasting menu. We didn't get good explanations of what we were eating, the time between dishes was inconsistent, and to start it off, the cocktail flight drink order was messed up and they brought us 6 cocktails at once, allowing them to get watery before we were able to enjoy them. Finally, I had to skip work today because of my stomach, I've eaten street food all over India and my stomach never felt as upset as it did this morning.

I can't believe this restaurant has been open for 14 years, and today was my first visit! The food is so savory and flavorful, it requires your entire attention to enjoy. I literally stopped talking to my friend for a good half hour and just reveled in each bite. The food at Indika is Indian with a modern twist...but, it isn't fusion. The food leans strongly towards its Indian influence and is loaded with spice. What I love though, for beginners, is the brunch. For $20pp, there is an unlimited feast of about 20 items or so. This is a great opportunity to try everything, figure out what you don't like, and order tons of what you do like. Another great thing about the brunch is that it's buffet style without a buffet line. Rather than the food just sitting out on a cold line, the servers bring food out to the tables as it is prepared in the kitchen. From the brunch menu, my favorite items include the Chicken Samosas, the Spinach Potato Cake Chaat, the Pulled Pork & Fried Egg, the Fish Kofta Curry, the Coconut Pancakes, and ALL of the desserts. If you don't think those few items will fill you up, you're crazy! PLUS, the menu has a lot more. I'm definitely adding Indika to my permanent brunch list!

Fantastic service, interesting food, loved the atmosphere. The waitress was great, very knowledgeable and friendly, while at the same time knowing when we were too involved in conversation to really be paying too much attention. A group of 7 and i went for my birthday, and it was the best decision i had made all weekend.
