An informal and relaxed restaurant situated on the mezzanine level of London’s definitive contemporary hotel, One Aldwych. Overlooking the bustling Lobby Bar, Indigo offers diners a creative and ever changing Modern European menu.

The contemporary menu uses only the freshest ingredients to create a light and healthy dining experience. Start with the hand-dived Orkney scallops before enjoying one of the main courses including slow braised beef cheeks, bourguinon garnish and mash potato. Finish with one of our signature desserts including the popular classic crème brûlée.

With its Covent Garden location, the restaurant is ideal for a bite to eat before or after the theatre.

    Enjoyable and comfortable environment with nice, if not remarkable, food, well located for theatres. We had booked for the 3 course set menu offer with Prosecco, at £25. However one of our number chose to have 2 courses. She was charged the same as if she had had the 3 courses. We felt this was not good value, and has affected our appreciation of our evening there.

    A very pleasant meal before evening theatre. Food was excellent and tasty and well-pesented. Wine was very slow to arrive-after we'd finished our first course. Waiters a little mixed in service-some good, some a little slow. Would recommend to others and will go again.

    Indigo, set in the mezzanine of this Aldwych hotel, provides a much nicer dining experience than the subterranean Axis but the food is nowhere near as impressive as the sister restaurant downstairs, even if they probably share a kitchen (and prices). It's a superb venue for a pre-theatre meal for any of the shows in the area but we will be returning to Axis One rather than Indigo.

    Nice not to be overfed especially when you're heading back to the theatre, but I'm not a person with a large appetite and I found the main course and starter portions extremely small. However, the tiny amount of ratatouille garnished with a very small plaice fillet was absolutely delicious. And I still had room for dessert. My husband's choice of pasta was definitely a much larger portion, so go for the carbs if you want a nice filling meal. Coffee was excellent.

    This was my second visit to Indigo in as many months. It wasn't quite as good as the first but it was still very good. I had the chicken salad to start, my only criticism would be that there wasn't much chicken, the cumin dressing was very subttle but very good! We ordered a side order of new potatoes with our mains and they were delicious as was the pork. There was a slightly disappointing pudding selection but I had the mango and coconut fool and I wasn't disappointed, it was light, refreshing and tasty.

    I have been dining at Indigo for 15 years. It's a super venue but it is expensive for what you get and 12.5% service charge/tip is steep. This time I had a rather indifferent mackerel pate for starters and some very plain pasta - not up to the high standard I expect and 2 glasses of wine - one at £13 and one at £8.50 is very pricey It's not cheap! and somehow the cooking seemed no longer special (which it use to be) A bit disappointed if I'm honest - although convent for Wolf Hall and BUTB double bill

    Service was good, staff pleasant and friendly with a sense of humour. One was over the top and almost uncomfortably subservient, dressed in grey. Comfortable chairs, not too close to other diners. My rabbit was delicious and tender and my daughter's vegetarian meal was good too. My friend was not asked how well cooked she wanted her liver, luckily what came suited her. Young staff need more help with the wine list and how to serve wine.

    Visited with two friends for pre theatre meal. 3 courses with a glass of prosecco for £25, was excellent value. Venue is very striking with huge arched windows and contemporary stylish decoration. We had table overlooking the bar from mezzanine level which was great. Food delicious and substantial, not the typical Nuevo cuisine tiny portions which leave you wanting. Service smart, attentive but discreet. Very impressed and would definitely return. Would also recommend bar for drinks, lovely setting.

    First visit to Indigo was a pleasure. Staff were very helpful asking if we had to leave at a certain time for the theatre & ensuring that our delicious meal was served promptly. We took advantage of the special offer-3 courses & a glass of Prosecco £20 & the presentation and cuisine was exceptional value for money.

    Dined as a party of four and enjoyed a wonderful lunch on the Open Table deal (3 courses and a glass of Prosecco - £25). The menu was quite restricted, but we all had something different and we all enjoyed our meals. The food was beautifully presented and very well cooked and we thought excellent value on the deal, the service was excellent without being over the top. Would certainly dine there again and would highly recommend.

The food was served in timely way for our theartre deadline without feeling rushed. The service was excellent and the staff attentive and considerate.

    We booked the pre/post theatre menu (three people) as we had been to the Aldwych Theatre which is very close as indeed is Drury Lane where most of the other theatres are situated. The restuarant is lovely and we had a very good corner table so very happy. Service was excellant and although the menu is necessarily limited as a fixed price offer everyone was happy with their choice. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a nice venue close to the theatre. Only downside - the cover charge of 12.5% although I suspect that is standard now, and the cost of the drinks which I felt were on the high side.

    I've was taken to the Indigo for a business lunch and was so impressed I booked it for my wedding aniversary dinner. I wasn't disappointed. We arrived an hour before our reservation for drinks in the lobby bar but the were no seats available. No problem, we were wisked to a private lounge area where we were looked after by a wonderful young waiter (can't recall his name). The service continued to be attentive but not intrusive and the food was great. My wife and I had a wonderful time and will return.

    Couldn't get into Axis so thought we'd try Indigo instead, as Number One Aldwych is so well-situated for theatres. Less formal than Axis and much noisier as it's on a balcony overlooking the cocktail bar. Fine for us, good food (well cooked and presented) and service. Probably not the best place for business - or romance! We'd go there again.

    Four of us had tickets for the Aldwych for 2 consecutive evenings, so booked at Axis for the first which we have reviewed, and Indigo for the second (both at 1 Aldwych). Both were 4 1/2 stars - extremely good. The food at Indigo whilst very good, was less adventurous than Axis, but the dining room in Indigo is brighter and airier being on the mezzanine. The service in both is impeccable. We had had a wine of a specific vintage we liked in Axis, and the waiter went down specially to find it for us the second day in Indigo. We would heartily recommend both to people who like food - but do not need very large portions.
