    Average food, average ambiance, nothing stands out in comparison of what Tripadvisor rates it as #1 Indian restaurant in NYC, there are far better options than this in NYC.

    First time here. As it was only me, the portions are great for two, but my server advised me well and I had the right balance of size and flavour. I left feeling satisfied and would return as this restaurant gives a fair balance of what to expect from the wide and diverse culinary treats of India.

    The restaurant was very busy, jammed in fact, because of the holiday weekend. We had reserved for 7:15 and arrived fully an hour early and had a drink at the bar to await the first table free. Their friendly staff attended diligently to serving us and to every request. The meal was absolutely delicious and served elegantly. This is an excellent restaurant! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    The food was incredible as was the service. We like our Indo-Chinese food spicy and were not disappointed! We got the Dry Chili Chicken, New Delhi Chaat, Vegetable Manchurian, Szechuan Rice & Noodles, Salt and Pepper Prawns, and Rose Kulfi. They brought out complimentary vegetarian cutlets; always a nice touch. A Shahi Tukra made an appearance for my birthday which was also delicious. Water refills were abundant and the drinks (Django Mango, Old Fashioned, and Baileys) hit the spot as well. Spicy Symphony continues to be one of our favorite restaurants in the city.
