The food was truly amazing, the ambience was just perfect and the service was immaculate. The raspberry sorbet that came at the end was truly the icing on the cake, the perfect way to wrap up the dinner. A special mention to Kanu, our server...who was very attentive, and friendly and did an excellent job at making sure everything was okay. Thank you to the entire team. It was a memorable dinner and we would love to come back!More

Had a fabulous evening dining at The Indigo. The restaurant's dining hall is located in a stunning heritage building in Penang. Food and drinks were fantastic and service was great. What would further elevate the dining experience for guests would be a dedicated server to...the table. There was no proper welcome once we were seated and three different servers approached us within minutes of each other asking if we are ready to put in our order. Since we had the 5-course dinner with wine-pairing, our experience would have been enhanced had the dishes and the accompanied wine been explained when presented. These small service improvements will propel the restaurant from being great to exceptional.More

The building is grand and very beautiful. Once inside directions to the restaurant are poor,,,, there isn’t any! We asked the bar staff down stairs who snapped at us, not a warm welcome all. Access the restaurant via the stairs in the internal courtyard. Table...settings are spacious as is the room. The little actions count in fine dining: we arrived with a wet umbrella, there was no offer to take it from us or for us to store it somewhere. Service was attentive but please do not use an ear piece and microphone to order our drinks while standing at our table. Chose your courses carefully. We felt the menu may have benefited from Asian influence dishes. I started with the scallops which were beautiful, perfectly cooked with perfect accompaniments, really lovely. I thought only 2 scallops was pretty poor though. My partner ordered the Miso Tempe which was exquisite . Main course cauliflower was disappointing, presentation very poor, lacked flavour was not balanced. I also ordered the foie gras, the balance of this meal was very disappointing so much that I chose not eat the dish and returned it. No questions of concern from the waiters. Other sides were fair but not overwhelming. A fresh side green salad would have been beneficial. Dessert was beautiful. The room became very noisy and warm. If you take away the building and critique the food only sadly I feel it did not have the wow factor for usMore

Mostly quite good but choose your dishes carefully. Lamb was wonderful; the chicken was flavorless and boring. Desserts excellent. Service very good and the setting in the Blue Mansion unique and interesting.

Signed up for a tour of the Blue Mansion and made reservations at the Indigo Restaurant for lunch. Tour was extremely enjoyable and informative but highlight was truly the lunch at Indigo — a definite must do if you are in Penang and want to...indulge your tastebuds. Be warned though- the lambshank portion is huge and more than enough for two persons! Service was attentive and prompt — top notch yet friendly!More

Eating here is not only a satisfying experience, but the surrounds are truly so unusual and magnificent, contained as it is with an old Chinese Mansion. The food was top quality although a slightly broader choice would have been appreciated by me since I don't...eat fish nor seafood. But there's a few other dishes which would satisfy including some vegetarian. The staff were very attentive, respectful and pleasant which make a huge difference when I go out for dinner. So I would urge all visitors to Georgetown in Penang.More

We visited for Christmas lunch. It was a set festive menu, four courses. The staff are very professional. You were never left waiting for a drink. They are more than happy to take photos of us in front of the magnificent tapestry on the wall....The food and cocktails were 5 star. The mansion itself is just stunning.

I had an incredible dining experience at Indigo, thanks to Javed and the exceptional service team. Javed was incredibly attentive, consistently checking in to ensure our comfort throughout the meal. His dedication to providing top-notch service truly stood out. What made the experience even more...memorable was the thoughtful gesture from the waiter team – surprising us with a birthday cake. We were genuinely touched by this unexpected and delightful addition to our celebration. The combination of outstanding service and the personal touch of the birthday surprise made our visit to Indigo truly special.

Three courses out of five very good. One neutral. One pretty bad, the main course, Australian beef. Even a cook in simple restaurant in Australia would rather commit harakiri than serve this kind of sinewy chunk. The polite and discreet staff totally unprepared to respond...to criticism. Nice setting. Good concept. Reasonable wine prices. I guess that we were just unlucky.More

Very bad service. Completely forgot my friend’s birthday even though I requested it (and it was written next to my name when I checked in for the reservation). Staff seems not to care much (took forever to find the upstairs restaurant despite many people working...there doing nothing). Food was fair but nothing special. Very little Malaysian influence on fine dining. Save your money and you could have several meals elsewhere beyond this touristy place.More
