This is an outstanding restaurant! There is a wide selection of food, and the quality of all the food that we ate was outstanding. Service was tremendous, and for a very high quality restaurant in NYC, the prices were reasonable. I would highly recommend Spice Symphony to anyone who enjoys Indian food.

Sunday dinner after concert, away from the crush and friendly plus great food...interesting choices of Indian and Chinese. Vijay the perfect waiter, unhurried but always there when needed. Especially loved the unique appetizers...crunchy spinach from the chef and spinach tempura, satisfying to even an omnivore like me, plus 2 flavorful chicken mains, one in a rich sauce and one grilled. Lots of locals, always a good sign. Will be a fave for us.

when our go to Thai restaurant on the west side turned out to be way below its previous qualit level we searched for a pre show place to eat along with some vegatarian friends. Trip Advisor and Open table both lead us to Spice Symphony which was an easy walk to and from the Broadway theater district. WOW what a suprise, from the warm greeting and friendly bartender who served us when we arrived early to the captain who educated us on some of the more special dishes that we had not heard of before. Then the food. The lightly fried califlower starter ( next time its and entree for me) to the coridander soup ( OH WOW) to some of the most amazing entrees our group had ever had in an indian restaurant. all served up by a happy and friendly staff

Their Maitre'D was extremely helpful in guiding us through the menu & suggesting appropriate dishes, & Management were very understanding when I had issues with my CC being initially declined by my (foreign) Bank until I had to call & resolve the problem. I'm pleased I found this neighborhood Gem!

It was our 17th Marriage Anniversary and Spice Symphony made this moment memorable. Whole staff was courteous, food was delicious. They went extra mile to make sure that our whole family has wonderful experience. I am sure that we will celebrate many more occasions there.

Table for 8 , we had Nisar as our server. What a great evening, the food was excellent and the atmosphere was superb. What a wonderful surprise was the quality of service we received and how awesome our waiter was. I could not believe how many staff they had working in that restaurant. You could not have asked for any better service than that. If was worth the visit to this restaurant and we would definitely recommend any of our friends who are travelling to New York to dine there. Thanks!!!

I went here with two friends on a Sunday night after seeing the Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall. It is a short walk through a nice area. We had read good reviews and our experience exceeded our expectations. The food was delicious! Every dish we ordered was outstanding. We especially loved the eggplant dish as well as the okra. I have an Indian friend who cooks me gourmet food, and this was even better!! The service was spectacular. The ambiance was serene and the servers were attentive but not intrusive. I would highly recommend visiting this restaurant. The prices are also very reasonable!
