My husband and I went here for our 1-year anniversary, and it was spectacular! A true feast for the senses. The food was so interesting, beautiful and delicious. I would definitely recommend. It was elegant.

Fantastic food as always (Lamb is not to be missed), innovative cocktails and white glove service that manages not to be overbearing...

Indian Accent is by far the best Indian restaurant we have been to. We did the lunch tasting menu and every dish was better than the last. The depth of flavor for every dish was beyond anything we have ever had before! The service was impeccable- knowledgeable and so friendly. The ONLY negative was the $24 we paid for our sodas. My husband and I each had 2 small glasses of Diet Coke. We understand NY prices, but when you can have a fabulous meal with the opportunity to have more of whatever entree we wanted at no extra cost for $55/person, $24 for sodas seems ironic. We will be back many, many times...and we'll have water.

Too noisy. Person on next table was literally shouting in our ear. Not expected from a fine finding restaurant where you spend 200 dollars per head.

They ran out of scallops and didn’t give us a choices. They simply gave us a large portion of Cornish hen in a Kerala masala which was good but we would have preferred to make another selection.

Most over priced restaurant I have been to in a long time. Waiter expected you to have a degree in Indian cuisine and if you want to avoid dairy you are stuck with a 30.00 falafel. Hipster place that is a rip off.

We had the 10 course dinner. Each and every dish was piece of art. The taste, presentation and quality of food get 10 stars. For scotch fans, Smoke and spice is a must try!

In one word: spectacular. Imaginative menu, food, presentation, service, setting. Prices are reasonable for this area, around the corner from Carnegie Hall. Best Indian meal ever, and one of the best meals of any kind.

Hands down the best Indian restaurant that I have been to in NY. The food is delicious, the staff is incredibly professional and no detail is missed. I would recommend it to anyone with reservation. It is truly a different caliber than the many other Indian restaurants that I have eaten out in NY.

Great food and great place if only it was inviting. Every time I go the reception is never kind or welcoming. It’s as uninviting a hostess as any place in the city. Yes the food is amazing but we you start feeling you are not wanted, you really have to re-evaluate why you will ever come back.

The greeter was extraordinarily rude and unfriendly as if she were doing us an enormous favor by even acknowledging us. We waited over 20 minutes for our table without even an apology or an invitation to sit somewhere or a realistic estimate of the waiting time until we asked.

Wonderful! Endless plates of delicious, inventive, unbelievably good deshi cuisine. Loved the tiny phuchkas, lamb chops, kulchas (my chicken and my friend’s duck), the cod, and lamb chop. The scallops were ok. The desserts were incredible - carrot halwa ice cream in a cone, a roshogollah wrapped in a “mousse” (?) and an airy mound of deliciousness with saffron, 24 karat gold and a lit candle for my birthday. And the cocktails were delicious as well!
Service was very good - although it was odd that it seemed each plate was served by a new server. I would’ve preferred just 1-2 servers! But I did appreciate the staff member who came running out into the cold street with my bag of leftover kulcha!
This restaurant is accessible. I use an electric mobility scooter and was impressed by how discreet and helpful the staff were... Top marks!

Our reception was terrible:first ,we fane 17 min late and they said they gave our table to somebody else,so we waited for 2 hours and came back on time,however,they asked asked us to wait for 15 min as our table was not ready.they don’t have dishes with curry..so their indian accent is quite small

Truly original gourmet Indian cuisine, with creative reinterpretation and presentation of traditional Indian cuisines. Simply outstanding and the "tastiest" Indian food you will find, not only in NYC, but top tier globally.

Three friends met up at Indian Accent and we impressed by the food and service. We ordered the brunch tasting menu and it offered us delicacies we may not have tried on our own. We were impressed with every dish artistically arranged and a treat for the tastebuds. Sevice is top notch too! A wonderful find, we will be going back again.

Unique presentation on all four courses. Amazing flavors and textures with just the right amount of heat and sweetness. I was in NYC for 8 days. This was by far the best recommendation by our concierge. It should have a Michelin star for sure.

I booked a table for my mom’s 60th birthday celebration. I loved the whole experience and I was worried what my mom would think, but she had a great experience as well! Our server Moynul was very attentive and it’s like he knew what our taste was (he recommended the sea bass and I wish I had chose that instead of the scallops; don’t get me wrong, the scallops were good but everything else he recommended was so good that I now regret not being able to try the sea bass!). We loved the pepper chicken, lamb chops (OMG, I texted my husband right away that someone finally out-did his lamb chops!), my mom loved the baigan bharta (we loved the presentation), Assamese dumpling was okay (but again Moynul recommended that it might not be my taste), so glad Moynul gave us a sample of it instead! Crab claws were good. Cocktails were perfect. This place was not pretentious at all, menu was flexible and food was perfect level of spicy! I also texted my family who was in London at the time to try Indian Accent London! Can’t wait to come back to NYC and eat here again (or try all their locations).
