We calculate the superconformal indices of recently discovered three-dimensional N = 4,5 Chern-Simons-matter theories and compare them with the corresponding indices of supergravity on AdS4 times orbifolds of S^7 in the large N and large k limit. We find perfect agreement for orbifolds without fixed locus, and argue that the agreement can continue to hold for orbifolds with fixed locus provided that the mass shifts of the twisted sector states are properly taken into account. We also discuss the index for the so-called "dual ABJM" proposal.
