First impressions were great, the staff were lovely and very welcoming. However, unfortunately our waiter was overbearing - up selling is fine but there is a fine line between adding value and being over the top eg asking us if we wanted a lobster (all three were already having curry). We found the waiter very irritating and too attentive so that we couldn’t properly enjoy the meal - he even tried selling us more rice when we were almost finished the meal. One of us had the Rogan Josh and thoroughly enjoyed it, however the chicken tikka masala tasted like tomato soup. It was disappointing and based on the food I would not return or recommend to a friend.
The food excellent. Really enjoyed the Salmon, and service was very good.
Great experience. I am going back and I am recommending this place.. Awesome
The service was amazing. Our server, Aldi, was so sweet had great recommendations and we asked for something that wasn’t on the menu and they made it for us.
Will definitely be making it a regular restaurant for us. So tasty
Absolutely love this place!!! Food is fantastic, service is excellent, we stay at the hotel across the street and make it a point to get there one a month. An absolute favorite!!
second visit -- looking forward to third!
staff seems eager to recommend and please.
every dish was flavorful.
beverage prices were a bit high, but not out of line for manhattan.
Spice Symphony is one of our favorite spots. Great spice, well prepared, good staff and a comfortable ambiance.
Very attentive service. Large variety of Indo/Chinese food. Tables are well spaced so that even when crowded, noise level didn’t prevent conversation. Tandoori food prepared so that it remained moist. Roasted eggplant has the perfect amount of heat.
I haven't had this good Indian food in a while. The place was clean. You get a decent meal with great taste. We couldn't even finish the 2 dishes the 2 of us ordered. One of the dishes we wanted wasn' t even on the menu but they made it anyway for us. Great place with great food and clean. Also very friendly personel. In total we had an excellend evening here.
Outstanding Indian and Indian-Chinese fusion. Creative and unique recipes.
The food was delicious, and the service by Aldi was simply outstanding! Highly recommend this to anyone craving flavorful Indian cuisine in Midtown Manhattan.
Great food and friendly service. Don’t miss out on the tandoori lamb chops and the caramel coko pudding 😃
Loved this place! It was our first choice for restaurants in NYC And we were so pleased! We loved the soups, and our meals and the Naan!! The meal was so reasonably priced too!!! We had dinner other places that week and payed twice as much as we payed at Spice Symphony. They are a hidden gem that I’m sharing with everyone I know!
Very gracious service. Large menu with many options; food was well prepared and presente. Staff was accommodating when requests for changes were made. Tables set far enough apart that conversation was easy.
Awesome place!! Ambience is great - busy and not super noisy. Food is amazing!!
Very helpful and attentive service- food was delicious!
Good food and service. Very reasonable prices and friendly staff. Atmosphere was lively and fun without being overly loud.
Oddly very bland food.
All very good. Many locals dining in their ethnic food
The server was not at all helpful. Instead of helping his concern was more about the volume of food ordered. The food was disappointing not up to the ratings that it has received.
Nice place to have a great Indian food dinner. Great service and friendly staff
Amazing service and attention to detail, will go back!
We enjoyed the Indian portion of the menu; eggplant, goat biryani, and a fairly unique shrimp dish with vinegar overtones; all three dishes were well prepared and made a very pleasant dinner.
Best service I've had at a restaurant in many years. Attentive without being pushy, and friendly and genuinely cared about our dining experience. Food was excellent and the price was impressively low for the quality of the ingredients, presentation, and overall taste. Really a top-notch place.
A very attractive space. The menu is very varied and Aldi was very helpful in making suggestions for our group.
Great Experience!! Food, service and Nice atmosphere! Really worth it!
Looking for an Indian Restaurant in NY, we found a gem where we not only had a great dinner, but had excellent service
Great authentic Indian food . Wonderful craft cocktails. Price for the quality is very good. Great atmosphere
Food was delicious. Service was excellent. The ambience was elegant.
I would come back again.
I can’t say enough good things about this restaurant. The food is amazing, and the service was phenomenal. We tried multiple dishes and were impressed with everything. Be sure to try the Indian coffee after dinner.
Excellent food, wide variety, impeccable service, cold beer. We went there for dinner and liked it so much we stopped in for lunch the next day. We thoroughly enjoyed both meals. Aldi, our waiter recommended the lamb shank which was not on the menu. Yummy.
Had dinner here for the first time and was blown away by the food! The flavors and presentation of the food were wonderful! I had the Vegetable Biryani. It came to the table in a large "mountain" shape in a bowl to be scooped out onto my dinner plate. The freshness and "al dente" texture of the vegetables integrated with the savory basmati rice were a feast for ones eyes. The taste was amazing...one of the best Vegetable Biryanis I've ever eaten. As a vegetarian, this is my "go-to" dish to test out Indian restaurants and Spice Symphony took top honors!
My dining companions had the Shrimp Biryani, which she loved and the other 2 ladies had the Chicken Tikka Masala...and they both also raved about that dish too!
I had the Curried Cauliflower Soup as a starter. The flavor was amazing and the texture was smooth, creamy and delicious. The best Curried Cauliflower Soup ever! I could have eaten another bowl but wanted to save room for my entree!
Can't wait to visit NYC again to go to Spice Symphony for another fantastic meal!
Great place for informal lunch or dinner who enjoy Indian food!!
We would not recommend this place - Despite having an OpenTable reservation and the restaurant having only three tables occupied, we were seated at a table under a leaking AC unit and were told that it's the most comfortable seat in the house and that the AC unit leaks just a little bit and we should be just fine. We came for Indian food, but we were asked if we are familiar with Indian food and were suggested to try the Chinese food they offer as well, and that is kind of unexpected in an Indian restaurant. The food was mediocre (both the Indian my wife and I ordered and the Chinese our daughter ordered). At the end we were asked to leave a good review online - which confirms the suspicion why a restaurant with such great reviews is in fact mediocre at everything (food, service, ambiance, etc.)
High end Indian food - full of Indians eating!
Tries too hard to be something special when it is really just an overpriced, pretentious spot for mediocre Indian food.
We ordered a shrimp dish but they brought a fish dish. No matter - it was delicious as all the food here always is.
Great food. Service impecable.
It was a little nosy because we were sitting next to the kitchen. We were asked if we’ll like to seat in another more quiet table.
And they were busy. Great, huh?
Very good Indian restaurant, affordable for NYC. Our server was amazing, service was prompt and professional. Food was excellent, even gave use extra rice for our leftovers. Portions very generous. Overall, an excellent choice for an evening out in midtown Manhattan. About a 20 minute walk from the theater district.
Love, love, love this place! We are in NYC every other week on business and eat here every time. Food is off the charts great, good drinks and wine, super wait staff!
