Excellent Indian food. Many dishes you don’t see on other menus.
Staff at the restaurant were very kind and attentive. Myself and my partner dined with them for his birthday and they picked up on my booking request that we we’re celebrating his birthday. They tailored food so it was vegan, and they came out with a dessert which had a candle and handwritten personalised birthday card. It was a very personable, memorable and high level of service. Not to mention the food was exquisite. If I lived in New York I would be there all the time. Thank you team for making our trip memorable and for being genuinely lovely and friendly people. 5 stars from us!
Our best review is that we will definitely go back!
Attentive service and good food. We chose from the Indian menu but a couple next to us chose from the Chinese and this also looked very good. Would recommend.
Our party consisted of 2 women and we felt that we had to flag people down to get service. I had a dish that contained and they were chewy and overdone.
I can’t say enough! The food was delicious, nice ambience and attentive service. I had noted when booking that a birthday was being celebrated, not only did they bring a dessert and sing to me but gave me a lovely card. So special, highly recommend.
Amazing food and overall experience! The place is very nice and service was outstanding. The spiciness of the food was adjusted to our tolerance level, so that was a plus.
Food was significantly overpriced for the portion size. We requested mild-medium spicy food. We were served spicy food. When we questioned this , they laughed it off saying well it is an Indian restaurant. What a shame as nyc had been amazing until this.
I am a big fan of Indian Chinese food and recommend everyone to try it. Spice symphony serves some of the best indo-Chinese fare. However, there were 2 people (I think the managers!) who were extremely rude while seating us and taking our order. Important to note- the wait staff who served us our food, cleared tables and poured water were all very friendly, the complete opposite of the others. Management should assess their attitude towards customers or they will lose business. I will give them another shot because the food was very tasty- kudos to the chef.
Really interesting and delicious food and very reasonably priced for NYC. Nasir ( sorry if that’s not the right spelling) was an excellent server and extremely helpful. Great experience!
great food, attentive service, and was able to have a working dinner without screaming
Such friendly staff! The food is absolutely delicious!! Even when ordering spicy, the meals pack some heat, but they maintain the wonderful flavors. We'll be back again :)
I booked this restaurant to celebrate my wife's birthday whilst in New York, the restaurant was close by to our hotel and within easy walking distance. Our host for the evening was a lovely gentleman by the name of Nisar and he provided excellent service throughout the evening. This restaurant can not be faulted, the quality of the food was exceptional even to the point that the chefs made a dish for my wife that was not even on the menu - first class. Nisar was attentive bot not overbearing, he did not at anytime make us feel as if we were rushed in anyway, in fact all the staff were fantastic and we felt very much at ease, especially when all the staff presented a desert with candle at the end of our meal whilst singing "happy Birthday".
I would highly recommend that you book this restaurant if you are lucky enough to be in the neighbourhood and enhance your time in New York.
Great food and attentive service, but they did not seat us until 25 minutes after our reservation. That is a bit too delayed.
Spice Symphony is a lovely restaurant--the food is especially well prepared, the service and ambiance are very good, and the price is reasonable. I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to a friend, especially one who appreciates unusually tasty and fresh Indian food.
Great experience, sauces as service. Good for vegetarian
had the vegetarian Thali...food was good, it was a good value and a comfortable place to meet a friend for lunch
Dinner was amazing. We had the tasting menu and the items were customized to the needs and preferences of our party. Our server, Ninad, was attentive without being obtrusive. The timing of the meal was leisurely without being slow. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed our meal.
Absolutely the worst service I’ve ever experienced. Used to be one of my favorite places to eat but I doubt I’ll ever go back there.
The service was excellent. Very attentive. The food was delicious
Valentines meal . It was a set menu which we didn’t know about however they let us order from original menu . Table was right at back by kitchen and reef rooms and a little cold . Service for drinks was a little slow . The food was some of the best Indian cuisine we have ever tasted cooked to perfection . We would definitely visit again
The staff was very pleasant and helpful. Very attentive to everything
The prix-fixe valentine’s menu was wonderful. So full of flavors and the perfect amount of food and we left with a free rose and thoughtful bag of candy. I absolutely recommend Spice Symphony for the food and the extra touches. Thank you for an amazing Valentine’s Day.
Our lunch was well-priced and delicious. Service was prompt.
Repas tres bon.
C etait bien.
Best Indian cuisine restaurant in New York City!!
We had a family gathering. The staff were extremely attentive and Bablu and his team asked if it was a special occasion. Overall, good food and pleasant experience for the whole family.
We had a great experience! Aldi our waiter was awesome. His recommendations were spot on. Great atmosphere and friendly staff... win win.
Great food, service, price, atmosphere
The service was wonderful, the food was great, and the location perfect. Our waiter (Elias?) was extremely attentive and kind and had a great sense of humor. We enjoyed our evening very much and look forward to going here again.
Delightful meal, cooked to perfection served by an attentive waitstaff. Particular credit for an enjoyable evening goes to Aldi.
Aldi was a great server! He suggested some items we really enjoyed. Great place!!
This place came with great reviews but I was really disappointed. Starter was great but entree were bland and unimpressive. Service was excellent.
Took an hour to get food. Otherwise food was very good
Favorite restaurant, amazing food, always great service
It was my birthday and we went to have dinner with my 2 small kids. The staff was very sweet and served rice and Naan to the kids very early on so they did not need to wait for the food to arrive. The food tasted great and the place was really very well managed. In the end, the staff surprised me with a yummy desert cake and a card to celebrate my birthday. They just made it super special. I definitely recommend this restaurant!
First time diner at Spice Symphony. Our waiter, Aldi, was great guiding the three of us through the menu. He recommended several appetizers and entrees. We ordered two appetizers plus two types of naan bread to start. For the main course we ordered three dishes family-style from several Aldi recommended - avocado chicken, a goat entree and a spicy lamb entree. All of the dishes were fabulous. We had one bottle of my favorite white wines and one bottle of a favorite red wine. Both were very reasonably priced. I will definitely return next time I am in New York.
Aldi was great. Sprinkled in some Indian history along w great service and food. Great night!
This is a great spot for so many meals. It was busy — so many not a date nite. But lots of tables of friends enjoying good food. Staff was fabulous. Doesn’t look like much on the outside. But pretty decor on the inside. Did a great job of feeding the hungry vegan.
It was great until the bill came... we were 5 and the policy is tip was added for 6 or more. I tip generously, but they had added it!! The waited pointed it out or I would not have known. Come on!! That’s just dishonest, and just left a bad taste in my mouth. fine meal
But already pricey, why trick your customers???
