    Amazing and inventive Indian food! We were super impressed that we found our new favorite Indian restaurant. The decor was modern and clean with an impressive bar in the front. The presentation of each dish was works of art. BUT they tasted even better than they looked. I will most definitely be back!

    Indian Accent had unusual dishes that were delicious. Be careful, because there is a fair amount of heat in most of them, but the heat suits my palate. Each of the four of us chose to eat 3 courses and we were all quite full by the end. One person chose a dessert, which turned out to be perfect. We had just enough room to be happy to sample the dessert.

    Appetizers was Ok! Every cocktail tastes similar with over sour. On Main course they just don’t know how to balance a plate. You can’t just give a main course meal without starch. It feels like just eating curry. And their desserts is whipped cream with saffron and dust of rose petals. Service was good. Overall I don’t recommend this place for the money.

    This is the 2nd time we’ve been here. I loved it so much the first time (pre pandemic) that we returned as soon as we travelled again to NYC this week. Wonderfully creative snd delicious food. It’s fun to try dishes that aren’t the typical Items on Indian restaurant menus. Good value for the quality and variety of food offered. Highly recommend!

    The food as well as it’s presentation were amazing! Considering there were 3 courses per person in the pre fixe, the quantity of food was considerable and we had to take some home which was a pleasant surprise! Service was great as well and the staff was very nice. The ambiance was ok. You wouldn’t feel you were at an Indian restaurant and there didn’t seem to be any music/energy and we could hear the conversations around us. Overall, pricey, but for a special occasion, I would definitely recommend for the food!

    Ive been to Indian Accent many times over the years and had previously had a good time. It was near impossible to get a reservation. Has to try for weeks. When i got there many tables were available. However you would have thought it was always booked out, based on how hard it was to book. The big issue this time was the food. It was equivalent to nice pub food (but Indian). The dishes that mase it special in the past were all gone. Many dishes relied on oilly bread and has little else in then. Also i like spicy food but most dishes were extremely spicy - even though we told the server we wanted mild. Lastly, this was a dining experience where the server was attentive till the deserts came. After that to get anything involved chasing him down

    The less than average service took away from the quality food. Do expect a more courteous and personalized service for a restaurant of this caliber. Not once did anyone come by and ask if the food was good, we saw our head waiter just once after ordering and then at the end , being served by multiple others during the course of the meal. The dining experience is not all about the food.

    This was quite honestly the worst experience I’ve ever had at a restaurant. I mean even Waffle House treats you better. I come in by myself to this restaurant and I get sat down by a very very nice hostess. I then wait for my waiter for 30 minutes to order. I place my order (4 course meal) and I swear that was the last time I saw him. I get my small plate (by the way I didn’t even get silverware to eat) so that essentially sits there until my appetizer comes and another guy brings silverware. The entrees came out well and quickly so no complaints there but keep in mind I still haven’t and don’t see my waiter (because I never saw him again after placing the order) then once I finish everything obviously I’m waiting forever for my bill but while I’m doing that another guy sets up the table and another guy asks me if I’m ready to order… so I’ve seen like 4 different people who are all doing random different things while I wait for the bill. I tell him I literally already ate and another guy comes over and asks if I want dessert (of course none of them are the original waiter) I say no and like 15 more minutes later he brings the check. This was honestly so bad. Maybe it was just me but I’m definitely never returning

    This is my second time at Indian Accent. The food was delicious as always, their menu doesn't seem to have changed from last summer. I think the food is some of the best Indian food you can get in the City. My only criticism is the service could be better. There was no small talk with the waiter (like asking "Have you been here before?") or offers to help us with the wine menu etc. Also, we were there celebrating a birthday and it would have been nice to have been wished a happy birthday or given some sparkling wine etc. Overall, amazing food and I'll probably be back, just not for the service.

    Absolutely loved it! Elegant setting, amazing food. James (Bartender) was funny and charming, whipped up two craft cocktails with our preferences, Richard (manager) was attentive, and our server (his name starts with an S) was adorable, and helped us navigate the menu (vegetarian for me, animals for my husband). We had no wait whatsoever, so perhaps other reviewers just had the misfortune of going when they were understaffed (and let's be honest! That happens everywhere these days, so be patient!) While it's not totally equal to Indian restaurants we've dined at in India or London, it was delicious and one of our favorite experiences in NY. We'll definitely be back!

    I have had the privilege of enjoying many different Indian food experiences during multiple trips to India. Dining at Indian Accent reminded me of India in every wonderful way, while elevating every taste and course to a level rarely experienced. You need not be familiar with Indian food to enjoy dining here, but if you are, you will be amazed at how fantastic Indian can be

    We chose the four course option and each ordered different courses so we shared eight tasty courses. The food was awesome. The presentations were creative and beautiful to look at. The staff was attentive and friendly. The wines section was robust and our choice complemented the meal well. The restaurant ambience was great and the decor was smart. We’ll be back for sure. If your ever near West 56th- try it out. You won’t be disappointed.
