Since opening in 2002, Indique, coined by the marriage of India and Unique, has strived to redefine Indian dining in the district. A fixture in the historic Cleveland Park neighborhood, the restaurant sits in a beautiful two-story space filled with bold colors, rich fabric, and white marble railings. True to its mantra of Unique Indian Flavors, the diverse kitchen features modern twists on classical fare from the North and South, and continues to create innovative takes on American favorites including lamb chops, mussels, and pork belly. Indique continues to be among the 100 Very Best Restaurants of Washington according to the Washingtonian Magazine - January 2013.
Chef K.N.Vinod and his partner Surfy Rahman from the mid eighties often thought of a simplistic approach to serve fine Indian food in a warm and welcoming atmosphere with prompt and attentive service. The realization of this dream started in 1991 in the form of Bombay Bistro, a unique dining experience. Bombay Bistro set itself apart from the very beginning with a completely open Kitchen and menu, which combined regional dishes from the North and South of India. The decor is very ethnic Indian with warm colors and clever use of Indian artifacts.
