The cross of Indian and Chinese dishes doesn’t work for me. If the food were a fusion of the two it would be different, but there’s a section of the menu that is Indian and another that is Chinese.
We had Indian food only. It was good but nothing stood out as unique or fantastic. Our waiter was unhelpful in suggesting items our group would enjoy and his suggestions sounded like the same thing he tells every table.

Online reservation worked fine, four of us dined leisurely on a Saturday afternoon 4/13 at the 50th St location, and we had a fabulous time. Food was exotic and delicious, healthy and servings were generous. Service impeccable, ambience subdued, decor elegant without being fussy. Good value for our experience. Highly recommended, we'll definitely return.

Had to dine in a super hurry. As I finished my main course, they clearly made me understand that I have to leave, if I was not going to order anything more. The locale had many empty tables, so I cannot understand this behaviour.

Being a typical "Brit Abroad" we went on the hunt for a curry house in NYC and we were not disappointed. Genuinely one of the nicest and authentic curry houses we've eaten in both home and abroad. Definitely one of those meals where you eat more than usual as you do not want to leave any. Highly recommended!

Delicious. Everything was spiced perfectly with all these hidden flavors bursting through with every bite. Was that cinnamon, cardamom, raisins? It was simply a symphony of flavor. Appropriately named. If you love Indian food like we do, try it. You won’t be disappointed.

We had a great dinner at Spice Symphony. The service was impeccable. One sip of water and the glass was already being re-filled! Food was tasty and served in a timely manner. Even brought a complimentary "taster" to the table as a small appetizer before dinner was served. Will def go back.
