Indu is situated in the heart of the CBD, offering modern Indian cuisine. The decor fits well with the theme, while the open kitchen provides a live cooking show. 

Pan Seared Scallops $19
This was our favourite dish of the night, the scallops were fresh and succulent. The mixed spices gave the dish a nice kick, and the garnish added nice vibrant colours.

Coconut Crusted Fresh Crab Kofta $14
These deep fried balls did make a good starter for the night, the outside was crunchy while the inside was soft. However, we found ourselves a little disappointed after searching hard for the crab meat, which was nowhere to be seen apart from some mushy paste. We found the spices a little overwhelming.

Sesame Rolled Beetroot Croquettes $16
The beetroot croquettes left us with a similar impression to the kofta, as they were presented in a similar fashion. The sesame crust was an interesting way going about croquettes, but again the pungent spices overpowered the beetroot flavour. 

Smoked Goat's Leg Dosa $18 
A playful dish of wrapping the meat in a thin pancake sheet. The use of ingredients were thoughtful, we liked how the combination of textures and colours worked together. But again a small minus goes to the flavouring of the meat. 

Masala Chai Panna Cotta  $12 
The presentation of this dish looked amazing, it was simple and elegant. Texture-wise it was spot on, the panna cotta was soft and smooth. The chai flavour was well handled, while the candied pistachio and rose added a nice crunch .

Peanut Semi-Freddo $14
Mr Piggy and I are quite a fan of nutty flavours so without hesitation we got the peanut semi-freddo. The presentation was flawless, the chocolate mousse was airy and smooth. But after digging into the semi-freddo, it was quite dense. Perhaps it just came out of the fridge and needed a little more time in room temperature. The salted caramel was overly sweet, as well as the rest of the dish, we had to get some tea in the end.
