Staff at the restaurant were very kind and attentive. Myself and my partner dined with them for his birthday and they picked up on my booking request that we we’re celebrating his birthday. They tailored food so it was vegan, and they came out with a dessert which had a candle and handwritten personalised birthday card. It was a very personable, memorable and high level of service. Not to mention the food was exquisite. If I lived in New York I would be there all the time. Thank you team for making our trip memorable and for being genuinely lovely and friendly people. 5 stars from us!

I can’t say enough! The food was delicious, nice ambience and attentive service. I had noted when booking that a birthday was being celebrated, not only did they bring a dessert and sing to me but gave me a lovely card. So special, highly recommend.

Amazing food and overall experience! The place is very nice and service was outstanding. The spiciness of the food was adjusted to our tolerance level, so that was a plus.

Food was significantly overpriced for the portion size. We requested mild-medium spicy food. We were served spicy food. When we questioned this , they laughed it off saying well it is an Indian restaurant. What a shame as nyc had been amazing until this.

I am a big fan of Indian Chinese food and recommend everyone to try it. Spice symphony serves some of the best indo-Chinese fare. However, there were 2 people (I think the managers!) who were extremely rude while seating us and taking our order. Important to note- the wait staff who served us our food, cleared tables and poured water were all very friendly, the complete opposite of the others. Management should assess their attitude towards customers or they will lose business. I will give them another shot because the food was very tasty- kudos to the chef.

I booked this restaurant to celebrate my wife's birthday whilst in New York, the restaurant was close by to our hotel and within easy walking distance. Our host for the evening was a lovely gentleman by the name of Nisar and he provided excellent service throughout the evening. This restaurant can not be faulted, the quality of the food was exceptional even to the point that the chefs made a dish for my wife that was not even on the menu - first class. Nisar was attentive bot not overbearing, he did not at anytime make us feel as if we were rushed in anyway, in fact all the staff were fantastic and we felt very much at ease, especially when all the staff presented a desert with candle at the end of our meal whilst singing "happy Birthday".
I would highly recommend that you book this restaurant if you are lucky enough to be in the neighbourhood and enhance your time in New York.

Spice Symphony is a lovely restaurant--the food is especially well prepared, the service and ambiance are very good, and the price is reasonable. I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to a friend, especially one who appreciates unusually tasty and fresh Indian food.

Valentines meal . It was a set menu which we didn’t know about however they let us order from original menu . Table was right at back by kitchen and reef rooms and a little cold . Service for drinks was a little slow . The food was some of the best Indian cuisine we have ever tasted cooked to perfection . We would definitely visit again

The prix-fixe valentine’s menu was wonderful. So full of flavors and the perfect amount of food and we left with a free rose and thoughtful bag of candy. I absolutely recommend Spice Symphony for the food and the extra touches. Thank you for an amazing Valentine’s Day.

It was my birthday and we went to have dinner with my 2 small kids. The staff was very sweet and served rice and Naan to the kids very early on so they did not need to wait for the food to arrive. The food tasted great and the place was really very well managed. In the end, the staff surprised me with a yummy desert cake and a card to celebrate my birthday. They just made it super special. I definitely recommend this restaurant!

First time diner at Spice Symphony. Our waiter, Aldi, was great guiding the three of us through the menu. He recommended several appetizers and entrees. We ordered two appetizers plus two types of naan bread to start. For the main course we ordered three dishes family-style from several Aldi recommended - avocado chicken, a goat entree and a spicy lamb entree. All of the dishes were fabulous. We had one bottle of my favorite white wines and one bottle of a favorite red wine. Both were very reasonably priced. I will definitely return next time I am in New York.

This is a great spot for so many meals. It was busy — so many not a date nite. But lots of tables of friends enjoying good food. Staff was fabulous. Doesn’t look like much on the outside. But pretty decor on the inside. Did a great job of feeding the hungry vegan.

It was great until the bill came... we were 5 and the policy is tip was added for 6 or more. I tip generously, but they had added it!! The waited pointed it out or I would not have known. Come on!! That’s just dishonest, and just left a bad taste in my mouth. fine meal
But already pricey, why trick your customers???
