Great service, great food, great time. Highly recommend
Always wonderful! Thank you!!
This is our second time going to spice symphony and like our first time about 2 year's ago, it was just as great! I love the vibe of the place. Staff are very friendly. Overall ambiance is modern, clean and very comfortable. Started with some amazing samosas followed by splitting two entrees; Tellicherri Pepper Chicken and Dhaniwal Korma. Both were excellent and just the right amount of food for the three of us. I have a bias toward the Korma though, I'm still thinking about it... We also ordered Onion Kulcha served with our entrees -- again, I was blown away enough to discuss how it was made with our server. He in turn seemed as enthusiastic discussing how it was made as I enjoyed eating it. For dessert we had rice pudding and carrot pudding -- -- highly recommend this! Looking forward to coming back to Manhattan just to eat here again.
Linda experiencia y asesoramiento con la comida fusión que fue excelente.
I was skeptical of the “fusion” menu, thinking it would undercut both cuisines. I was wrong. Every dish we ordered was excellent. I would definitely visit again to try more of the menu.
The restaurant is a typical New York City one with the tables close together and rather noisy although less so than some. The food was excellent and well presented. The service was willing, but seemed a little inexperienced. Overall we had a very pleasant time.
One of the best Indian food I ever had, and the vegan food was fantastic!
By far and away the best Indian food I’ve eaten.
Chose Spicy Symphony because we were coming into the city and having dinner with our niece who’s vegan, plus we all love Indian food. Reviews were great and it lived up. Service was extremely attentive—waiter suggested a half bottle of wine we didn’t care for and he took it back and brought us glasses of something else. Then we were given the chefs selection, a delicious appetizer, and great recommendations, all of which were fabulous. Will definitely return!
Despite reserving a table for 7pm it wasn't ready until 7.15pm, though our waiter was apologetic and gave us a small complimentary dessert (when we had said we were full and weren't going to order any). Food was tasty and check was entirely reasonable I thought. My sons thought the dishes could have been spicier, but that is possibly a NY thing (we are British).
Amazing experience - great service and food - very memorable thanks to Aldi!
We enjoyed a wonderful meal last night at Spice Symphony midtown. We asked for suggestions and went with all of the recommendations, one of which was not on the menu. Well seasoned food and friendly service. Will definitely go back!
We went for dinner on Friday night and had a great time. The appetizers and entrees that Vijay, our server, recommended we’re great. We will definitely be going back.
Great experience from start to finish. First, they kindly let us change tables to one of our choosing even through the restaurant was near capacity. Aldi thoroughly explained many of the menu items to us and provided some recommendations (which we took). The service was flawless and my meal, the Baghare Baingan, was the perfect blend of sweet and savory. Try the carrot pudding for dessert - you won't regret it!
Spice Symphony had an amazing array of items to choose from and everything was superb. We appreciated that the staff supported our ordering a bunch of different items to share with the entire table.
Food was excellent but service was unfortunately very poor. We felt that we were “forgotten about” multiple times even when stopping waiters to ask about the status of our orders... took 30 minutes after sitting to get our wine delivered and food ordered. Overall 2.5 hours for what should have been half that time. Everyone was very nice, but we were disappointed with the level of service timeliness.
It was amazing... but the lamb holy crap was it spicy my sweat was sweating. But it was delicious
Didn’t tell us it was a set menu. Set menu was over priced and a rip off. One of the portions was two small pieces of lamb. Genuinely one of the worst meals I’ve ever eaten, the only flavour that was present during the meal was spice! Avoid the other reviews as they obviously haven’t eaten at a proper Indian restaurant
Loved the food and service
I thoroughly enjoyed it. It beat my expectations
Lovely staff and delicious food. Great dinner! Would definitely return.
A wonderful find...the whole experience was excellent!
Good experience. They have nice food with reasonable prices. Excellent services, variety of selections. Comfy atmosphere.
Great place for casual Indian food in midtown . We went for lunch and there is a very good choice of 3 set lunch menus, next to a la carte, complete with an appetizer and a small desert; very friendly service.
We needed to find a restaurant near my doctor's office, so I relied on reviews at Open Table and found Spice Symphony. This place is almost too good to be true in every category. It's a lovely room, a few steps down from the hubbub of E. 50th St. The luncheon menu is such a deal: for $14-18 you can have a lovely three course meal, Indian or Chinese style. My companion had soup, spring roll, shrimp Szechuan style, fried rice, and rice pudding. I had chicken tikka masala with dal, basmati rice, chickpeas, cauliflower, naan, papadum, and rice pudding. Everything was fresh, served beautifully. Tablecloths! Our tab was $35. We are not in that neighborhood often, but you can bet we will return.
The food was very good and adequate portion wise, although it didn't have wow factor. Over the top service.
The food is wonderful. The second time we were there was a much less busy. The servers kept needing something to do, even when there wasn't anything to do. A very small complaint; we look forward to our next trip to NYC to stop in here.
Fantastic restaurant. We made a point to go back when we came on another visit to NYC. Wonderful vegetarian and/or spicy options that delighted both my husband and me. Friendly, efficient service in a very welcoming, peaceful atmosphere.
The gobi Manchurian appetizer is amazing. It's like General Tso's cauliflower, with a good crunch and a nice spicy bite to it.
Service was fantastic and so was food!
Nothing wrong and everything right. This is the real deal and what Indian food should taste like. Decor is pleasant, service is efficient, and the food delectable. An unexpected plus is the extensive wine list, although beer may be more appropriate for the spicy food.
Excellent, attentive service, charming owner, nice ambiance and legit Indian food. What’s not to like?
Excellent food, good last minute table availability, restaurant very busy but service still attentive and timely. Would definitely return when next in NYC.
Excellent food and ambiance. The service tends to be a bit intrusive at times but that is not uncommon in Indian Restaurants. Overall i am happy with my experience and highly recommend it.
We have eaten at Spice Symphony four times now and the the overall experience, especially the quality and tastiness of the food has been wonderful. The Hakka Noodles and the soups were delicious.
Great upscale Indian cuisine with impeccable service by our waiter Vijay (also met the owner and manager-both caring and attentive to guests) plus a lovely ambience. Will def go back and recommend it friends!
Spice Symphony. Never fails to deliver. A warm welcome, professional and friendly staff and a fantastic menu that offers a variety of Indian and Chinese cuisine. The goat curry is amazing!
If you are a vegetarian, Spice Symphony offers a wide selection of dishes that will both surprise and delight.
We will certainly be back there very, very soon!
We went for my sister’s birthday. The staff could not have been more attentive or gracious. We received a free taste of an appetizer. Our order was so good and perfectly spiced. They sang happy birthday and gave us a lovely dessert. The kindess of the staff was exceptional! Would HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Outstanding food and service by very nice people. I will return at first opportunity. Ran is delightful.
always great, reliable, with teriffic service a true hidden gem!!!
