Excellent food and service. Cocktails were excellent, good choice of wines and each dish was creative and tasted good.

Phenomenal take on Indian dining and a favorable turn at each course. Though each dish might seem familiar takes to bring out the best and freshest spices brighten each dish. The accompanying sides added to the mains while the fully stocked bar and wine offerings offered the Sommelier options to enhance the evening. Opt for the dessert selections and prepare to be enticed to try at least two. Worst case split one and take one home for the next day to remember last nights meal.

This is the first time i dined in for my birthday. Amazing food, courteous resturant staff and cozy resturant. The food were top notch quality and flavorful. The crab claw with cauliflower, pumpkin soup with blue cheese naan, lamb ghee roast with roomali roti, jackfruit and pumpkin kerala curry, truffle mushroom naan, doodhi barfi were my favorites. The wine selection was amazing.

We got the three course menu. I tried the eggplant bhartha which was tasty but hard to eat 3 of those out of a cone. Almost which it was the traditional bhartha. My salmon was delicious. My friend got the paper dosa which was good but she said the mushroom filling was really salty.

This visit was a slight miss given how much I have loved this restaurant during my other visits.

Amazing food and highly recommend this, however the service was strangely slow… Our guess was our server was either new or managing too many tables at once. Make sure to get the Makhan Malai!

We loved our visit to Indian Accent. We must say this is the best Indian food experience we have ever had. We have been to the top restaurants (will not name those) and the bar was raised at Indian Accent. We are not Indian, but it was a good sign to see that most of the patrons there appeared to be of Indian/S. Asian decent. The flavors and presentation were 5 stars and the service was kind. We plan to go back again!

Both the food and service here were impeccable. We especially loved the complementary starter with the little sipping soups, and the desserts we got were very impressive. For the quality, presentation, atmosphere and service it was actually a great value. Would definitely recommend to anyone who enjoys Indian food and it’s also great if you have vegetarians in your party.

Good meal but we were rushed. They don’t leave enough time between two reservations on the same table.

Took the wife to Indian Accent for her birthday and it was everything I hoped for and more than she expected. The low-key decor and easy ambience were welcoming, and a perfect counter for the complete flavor cacophony that came with each course. Flavor upon flavor upon flavor thrilled and satisfied throughout. Service was a group effort and very much on point. One warning, the portion sizes are decent and each course is filling, so maybe think twice before ordering the extra accompaniment…

Food was delicious, presentation was superb, service was fast and servers were polite and courteous. Nice casual environment, but they could improve the ambiance a bit. For such a pricey place, tablecloths on the tables would be nice (maybe it is COVID restriction?) and some fresh flowers/candles on the table were missed.

The food was great, especially the chili pork on phulka & ghee roast lamb were wonderful. The ambiance is the real dampener here, I have definitely been to much better places than this with regards to ambience. The staff was polite and courteous. The presentation of food was great yet it could be explained in a better way. Finally, the famous makkhan malai for dessert did not live up to the expectations, in my view it is saffron flavored whipped cream, nothing more nothing less. In short, it is good yet it leaves a lot to be desired and possibly my expectation was on a much higher scale.

I'm no stranger to high end, modern Indian cuisine but India Accent is truly in a class by itself. Opted for the outside dining to be able to order anything and everything from the menu and while it was a bit noisy and bright from the construction next door, absolutely no regrets as we feasted our way through the majority of apps as well as a main. Delicious, perfectly prepared and spiced with all the layers and subtlety of flavors one expects of fine Indian cuisine. Too difficult to choose anything to single out as it was all stellar, but do try the Transcendental Medication cocktail 😉. We were lucky enough to be able to nab a copy of their cookbook, which is a work of art in its own right. An absolutely amazing evening and we can't wait until February when we'll be dining at India Accents in Delhi (covid permitting)...
