Great dinner and good service although it is irritating when they don’t bother checking when to fill up your wine but keep your bottle off the table. Also the key reason we chose Indigo was the fact it was gluten and dairy free, however when they brought the petit fours over we were told not all were gluten and dairy free. It was a shame not to continue on the free from theme right through to the end. Minor point though!

This was the 3rd time this year we have visited and the food was again beautifully cooked and presented. It is also a very peaceful enclave in the heart of the bustling capital which we particularly appreciate

Married to a gluten sensitive lady, this was a real treat celebrating our anniversary. Our waitress (french lady) was very nice, knowledgeable and patient to all our enqueries. Chocolate cake as gratis was delicious. Will be back for next Anniversary.

I have visited the restaurant at Indigo at One Aldwych several times and was pleased to go back now that the refurbishment has been completed. The food was delicious but it is the staff who make it so special. Unfortunately, I am unable to eat seeded bread, but they went out and bought plain white bread rolls especially for me. I certainly didn't expect them to do this, but was really touched by the thought. I can't imagine there are many other restaurant who would do this. Thank you for your thoughtfulness and kindness. (PS if the chef would bring back the onion bread that would make it even better! - if that is possible).

Fabulous dinner, great atmosphere, great service and delicious food. The only way to tell this was all gluten and dairy free was the sourdough bread and not-butter - still nice. The rest of the meal you'd never know. Wine and beer also on point and the bill was what you'd expect of a meal of that quality. Highly recommended.

Good is of very good quality, service is with attention, however they kept forgetting what I have got in the set menu. The venue is in a nice hotel, but the restaurant is overlooking the bar of the hotel where the noise is quite loud.

Another outstanding experience at this fabulous gluten free and lactose free restaurant.
Every mouthful was a gastronomic delight!
The ambience, the exemplary service, the amazingly delicious food, and the time between courses to relax was the perfect way to celebrate my Mum's birthday.
We'll be back!

Stunning venue with the most attentive staff without being over attentive. It was my first time following a recommendation and took my friend there for her 70th birthday who is dairy free. I couldn’t believe the food was dairy and gluten free, absolutely delicious food, beautifully presented. At the end of our dessert the waiter brought a plate with a chocolate dessert with Happy birthday shard of chocolate. We were so touched. Definitely the go-to place when I’m next in London, Thankyou for making it so special

Still great for my Girlfriend to be able to eat anything on the menu, but the redesign means the restaurant is not as nice as before. Also the food although good was not as good as previous visits. Some small things like changing the bread haven’t improved.

Spent a wonderful afternoon at this stunning recently refurbished restaurant. My wife being a coeliac she was spoilt for choice. Delightful gluten free and dairy free menu, she could eat everything and it was most reassuring to have such attentive staff who were very knowledgable about allergies. Food was delicious and presentation of dishes was a joy to the eyes thanks to the expertise of Executive chef Dominic Teague. Laura, restaurant operations manager made our day extra special when she found out we were celebrating our Sons GCSE’s and brought them each a complimentary slice of chocolate cake. We look forward to a return visit.

We booked Indigo because a visiting colleague is gluten intolerant and normally has limited choice, so it was great that they didn't have to search the menu or make awkward requests to change items. It must be incredibly nice to not worry about being different or perceived as difficult.

I have other friends who are coeliac or gluten intolerant and have seen this dance around a menu before. I've also had plenty of gluten free bread before, so I can fully appreciate the joy of anyone who is GI or Coeliac when the bread comes to your table at Indigo as it's nice by anyone's standards - I mean light crumb instead of dense and heavy or cardboard like!

There are lots of great dishes on the menu that has been thoughtfully put together and for those of us who are not GI or Coeliac, we did not once feel deprived in any way. The venison was excellent. My colleague went straight for the fish and chips - it's funny the things you miss! Chef Dominic Teague has demonstrated that those who are Coeliac or GI can be fully catered for without anyone feeling like they're missing out

If I had one comment, and it is a very minor thing - the serving staff should really have told us what is no longer available or if there were limited servings at the time the menu's were brought to the table. Other than that minor point the front of house team were also very friendly and attentive.

A special experience. A family group including 2 children. service and attention to children needs good. service a little slow. Food quality excellent. Wine was supposedly Chablis but not a good representation of steely dry character it should be.

I took my mum here for her birthday treat, the staff were lovely and the food came out quickly and was delicious! The only downside was the added service charge that we didn’t realise would be added (it was our fault for not reading the small print), we would have left a tip but it’s just nice to be able to decide ourselves. Also it wasn’t a problem but maybe if the waiters took the nuts and olives that we were given in the bar up to our table so we could enjoy with the lovely bread that would have been lovely. Overall we had a fantastic time and all the staff were brilliant. Thank you!

Fantastic choice of restaurant especially if you have GF dietary requirements.
The service was excellent & the location great for many attractions.
The scallops we're exceptional and the baked Alaska was to die for, all gluten & dairy free.
The music came from the Lobby bar area and wasn't in keeping with the restaurant ambiance.

I wish we would have found this place sooner on our trip. Everything on the menu is gluten and dairy free. For me, that was a huge plus. That the food was incredible warrants more than five stars. A great experience! If you do go, be sure to head upstairs to Indigo. There is another bar/restaurant on the main level.

It was my birthday so as my daughter-in-law is celiac thought it would be good to have a menu that she could choose anything from! We had a lovely time, the food was good and we were amazed by the bread. The waiter kept forgetting to get us our drinks and we poured our own wine, but we coped! Overall a good standard of food and I would definetly go back.
