Everything was fine. The service was excellent and they even helped my cousin who uses a walker in and out of the restaurant. While the prices a re a little higher than other Indian restaurants in the area , the presentation and quality was very good. Very well done. Will return

I've been here before and generally like the food. I've ordered chili chicken (dry) in the past and it has been good, but this time around the chicken was very chewy and seemed like there was way too much batter. Either the dish was a day old or the chicken was fried too much. The avocado chicken tikka was flavorful, but was not as tender as it should be.
Please maintain the food quality standards that had me coming for many years. Even one bad experience can wipe out a patron's past positive experiences from memory.

All the dishes were delicious. The service was friendly and generous with extra sauce, rice and two desserts that were given compliments of the kitchen.

It is now our favorite Indian restaurant. We will be back soon.

The food was good, very standard to any other Indian restaurant. Thought it was a bit pricey for the portions and the very standard quality, but overall it was a good experience and we enjoyed our meal.

Food was good, but I’ve had better in Indian row. Prices high even for manhattan. Not bad, but could use improvement in value. Overall, I’d come back if in the area.

The food and service at spice symphony 31 was even better than 50th St location. The room is smaller and more informal and the service was more personal. We loved all of the dishes.

Nice neighborhood restaurant. Attentive servers and great food. Small place which was nice because the service was really helpful and made recommendations on what to order. Would highly recommend it for a quiet dinner if you’re looking for Indian food.

We went on a Tuesday for lunch and were happy to discover they have a very good lunch special: 3 courses (appetizer, main, dessert) for $13. The main comes with rice, dahl, and naan. For the appetizers we had an excellent butternut squash soup and a good samosa chaat. For mains we had the chicken tikka masala and the lamb saag. The lamb was fine but the chicken was very good. Dessert was rice pudding. We thought it was an excellent value!

Food and service was fantastic! While we mainly stayed with the Indian foods we did try some of the Asian Foods and they were wonderful as well. Everything was very flavorful. The cauliflower appetizer was out of this world. This location on 31st Street is very small. I would recommend booking a reservation if you want to go to the 31st Street location. Staff was friendly helpful and attentive.

Great meal and great service.
Our waiter made several recommendations which we tried. All were great. Even the Cauliflower appetizer. Also had samosas which were tasty. Had one curry Lamb dish, one Chicken and some garlic Nan bread. They gave us a extra desert for free. All good!

Inspite of having reservations we had to wait 20 minutes. When we asked the manager why do we need to wait he mentioned they had nothing to do with open table.
So I had suggested they shouldn’t take reservations if they can’t honor it or else it defeats the purpose of using a great app like open table. Our server was really nice and the food was great. But I wouldn’t go back there , as the manager was unapologetic about our wait for more than 20 min.

Good food overall. Some difficulty understanding our waiter. Appetizers came quickly and were delicious. Lamb and shrimp were labeled as medium spiced and had just the right amount of heat. One fish dish was a bit too salty. Lentils came late but tasted the best! We appreciated being able to linger at the table without feeling rushed, chatting for a while after the check was paid.

I am a vegetarian.. thus, Indian food lover! This place has it all :) we enjoyed the diversity of foods and the service was impeccable. The waiters were also nice and funny! I had the Baingan Bartha - baby eggplants in coconut milk and the sauce was spectacular .. we had chutney, well done and not sour; some, at the table, had the classical chicken tikka masala and were happy with it, the biryani lamb was very successful.. all wonderful!
I will come back !
