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.

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.

What a find, just a short walk from MOMA. The food was fantastic -- subtle and layered spices and textures. We loved everything -- particularly the coconut/pumpkin amuse bouche and the tandoori trout. The $38 lunch PrixFixe is a bargain for a restaurant of that caliber. The space is lovely and the service was both professional and friendly. Great experience!

We had a terrible experience at Indian accent. We had a 12 PM brunch reservation for 4 people. We were presented the menu and we chose the "Brunch Feast". Now, 2 of us were vegetarians, while the other 2 were not. The feast menu required us to make choices and many of the choices were between vegetarian / meat dishes. When we requested (given our dietary restrictions) to accommodate us by giving us dishes based on our dietary preferences, the servers flatly refused to accommodate. Nevertheless, we decided to go ahead with vegetarian choices (because it would have severely restricted the variety) for half the group. There was also an omelete curry (which on menu said had shrimp), but the server who took the order from us informed that they would give us a non-shrimp version. Since, we were not being accommodated with the meat dishes for the feast, we decided to order something else on the side. Now, apart from the above mentioned refusal to accommodate us, several things happened which made our experience terrible.
a) The side dish of chicken that we ordered never came
b) The omelette curry never came. When we inquired about it later with another server, he said they don't do any non-shrimp version of the curry as part of the feast. When we told him that the server who took the order from us had told us otherwise, he simply denied. Moreover, even after that the omelette curry never came (it was part of the feast menu).
c) The brunch feast is supposed to enable us to order unlimited courses of any dish. We wanted to try the desserts first before the meal. When we asked them to bring us the desserts first, they refused
All these things, combined with the way the server staff spoke to us made our experience terrible for 4 star restaurant. I must admit the food was good (as a vegetarian), however my friends who ate meat felt a bit disappointed given they could not try out any meat dishes
