Booked last minute on Christmas light switch on night. Service slow in places. Food and prices average.

A really central location. Menu was really varied and ranged from the usual standards to chef specials that I haven't heard of. My party sample a range of items and all went down really well. Staff friendly and attentive. Prices are a little higher than you might be used to but Hay is a remote place. Enjoy.

We were able to get a table despite not booking ahead - we were greeted by a friendly girl at the bar, and then by an attentive waiter who showed us to our seats, took our drink order & then left us to peruse the extensive menu. Food was hot and flavoursome & abundant - good sized portions. Exactly what's... More

My wife and I dined at the Red Indigo in Hay on the off chance. We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food and service. I had the chicken reama which was fabulously tasty. My wife had an equally good lamb dish. Veg, rice and bread all well cooked. All at a very reasonable price. Unusual dishes on... More

This a restaurant with a very modern appeal therefore it was a little disappointing to find a very traditional Indian menu. Having said that we were served with good food well cooked and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The waiter was a bit frantic but served us well and the prices charged were very reasonable Yes, I would recommend it to... More

Ordered as a takeaway our order was ready on time, staff were friendly. The food was really good with the meat being tender and the veg not over cooked, the dishes were delicately spiced and the sauces just right - not being overly rich. Would definitely eat from here again.

Had a meal here whilst staying in Hay on Wye & upon arrival we were shown to our table that we had booked, the restaurant looked pleasant enough but thats where it ends! we waited 45 minutes for our meal which is just not acceptable, when the food did eventually arrive there was no apology for the wait (maybe they...

To be fair, they were very busy as we went in Festival week. The food was average and the service wasn't very good as we had to wait a good while and felt quite ignored. I don't mind waiting when it's busy but please acknowledge your customers.
