Everything was spectacular. The sea bass was a little too dry and the rice with it was absolutely dry - rice should feel like it just came out of the cooker and this rice tasted like it had been sitting - but the excellent staff immediately switched it out for a different dish and every single other course was truly world-class. I was blown away and would come here again in a heartbeat.

This is the 3rd or 4th time we have eaten at the NYC branch (we have also been to the one in London and Deli). The sommelier was very helpful and we had some pleasant discussions on wine. The food was all very good- we skipped dessert since we were full. Only suggestion is to serve a slightly larger portion of black dal.

Excellent food, delicious cocktails. Priced like a Michelin star restaurant but rightfully so. The barfi is one of the best desserts I’ve ever had. The potato chaat and baked paneer were excellent fusion dishes. Ghee roast lamb is unbelievable. Highly recommend.

- hard to understand servers - very poor English and enunciation
- long wait for initial drink order and subsequent wait for drinks
- food is an experiment with several dishes leaving you wondering why is this restaurant supposedly Indian
- just as we are wrapping up, and spending $425 for two of us, a manager comes to our table and loudly proclaims that he he would like to offer us a complimentary glass of wine at the bar, rather than directly telling us that he needs the table, which in itself seemed rude to me as I don’t think much time had passed since our last course had been served and finished. All of this occurred by the way at 9:45pm, and the restaurant closes at 10:30pm - seemingly way past last seating. We said to give us two minutes, after which we just left. On the way out I let the manager know what he could do with his wine.

I really loved the casual but quiet atmosphere, where you can really enjoy food and conversation in a relaxed setting. Not super spicy, so I can recommend it to anybody who would love the experience of trying something new.

This is one of those must try restaurant's. You will not be disappointed. The food and cocktails are specialized and stand out as Indian Accent dishes.

19 feb 2020. Ambiance, service, cuisine et accueil de qualité, néanmoins les tarifs sont différents déjeuner/dîner, si pour le déjeuner vous avez la possibilité de prendre un seul plat, pour le dîner l’on vous impose minimum trois plats pour 79$ ...ou quatre pour plus... mais n’oubliez pas de compter les taxes (+15%) ainsi que le service (+20%) ce qui, augmente considérablement la note finale... dans nôtre cas, 2x menus a trois plats+ 3/4 vin a 30$ = 260$... ( pour les français donc avec un change a 0,93 + commissions) comptez 300€!!!

Indian Accent is a very special restaurant. Whenever we're in NYC, we try to go and always have the special chef's tasting menu which is superb.

I bought my girlfriend here for a post-Valentine’s day dinner. Indian Accent exceeded our expectations. The food was phenomenal; the flavors were incredible as well as the presentation. The staff was incredibly knowledge and courteous. Shoutout to our server, Andrew, for all the recommendations and excellent service. We intend on dining here again in the near future.

We are huge fans of Indian food and were really looking forward to eating at Indian Accent after hearing lots of great things about the restaurant. Made it all the more shocking that we had such a bad experience with the food. Lovely space, ambiance, service, etc. But the food was just awful. We ordered a lot of different dishes, and there wasn't a single one that I would want to eat again. The flavor profiles were very peculiar and unsettling. Not sure if it was just an off-day in the kitchen or if our tastebuds all decided to simultaneously malfunction, but we were honestly very surprised and confused by how un-enjoyable the food was.

The experience was lovely. We had great suggestions from our server. There were a couple dishes that we thought was under seasoned from our 7 course meal. The rest was outstanding.

I’m very picky with my old fashioned and it was quite tasty. I liked it because it wasn’t so sweet.

Service was very tentative and helpful.

Superb, savory, delicious ... and a non-ordinary variations on classical Indian cuisine. Outstanding, from the moment we walked in until the moment we left. Portions appropriate for a good meal ... not overwhelmed by tons of rice, etc. Sauces/curries were exquisite.

The most delicious Indian food I’ve ever had. This was my second time here and it was just as scrumptious the second time around. My husband and I each had the 4 course meal. Mine was vegan and his was vegetarian. Our servers were kind and courteous and explained every dish. Love love love it here!

Outstanding food ... among the best Indian food in NYC. Imaginative, flavorful and well-presented. Service unfortunately is a bit slow and ineffectual ... only reason I’m not awarding a full 5 stars.

Some of the most interesting/delicious food we have eaten in a long time. It’s an Indian restaurant serving anything but traditional Indian food. The preparations and spices were exceptional. A truly unique/marvelous dining experience.
