This place did not have a table for us even though we had a reservation, then we had to wait 15 minutes while they set up a table near the entryway, but told us the service would be slow because they were busy. Then they made us move tables when a table opened in the dining room. They promised to get us out in 45 minutes but did not - it was over an hour. They do not have their act together - horrible experience. And then they put an automatic 20% tip on the bill. Do not go here.

I also ordered a couple of g&t’s with my food order but it wasn’t until I got my bill that I realised the cost. I requested a copy of the drinks menu but was told there wasn’t one, the waiter said the manager would look at the bill which was later reduced. Very good food but beware that spirits are very expensive, pretty much like every bar in NYC

Samen met mijn vriendin een vorkje geprikt bij dit indiaanse restaurant. Wij eten regelmatig uit de indiaanse keuken, dit restaurant weet hoe om te gaan met kruiden en specerijen! Echt een aanrader. Houd wel een beetje rekening met het geluids-niveau, het is een levendig restaurant!

Spice Symphony offers Indian-style dishes that we haven't seen in other restaurants in California, Texas and other spots. The food is excellent, as is the service, with fair value overall. Get reservations in advance. We don't get to NYC often, but we'll dine at Spice Symphony the next time we're in town.

First impressions were great, the staff were lovely and very welcoming. However, unfortunately our waiter was overbearing - up selling is fine but there is a fine line between adding value and being over the top eg asking us if we wanted a lobster (all three were already having curry). We found the waiter very irritating and too attentive so that we couldn’t properly enjoy the meal - he even tried selling us more rice when we were almost finished the meal. One of us had the Rogan Josh and thoroughly enjoyed it, however the chicken tikka masala tasted like tomato soup. It was disappointing and based on the food I would not return or recommend to a friend.

While in NYC for a week, we went to Spice Symphony twice because we liked it so well. We are not very familiar with Asian cuisine, but this opened up our eyes to the unique and flavorful dishes of India and China. The service was exceptional and the atmosphere delightfully quiet and elegant. The owner/manager, Prem, and servers, Amit and Nisar, were fabulous and friendly. Try it. You'll be back, too.

The best indian food I have ever eaten, and I've been to three cities in India itself. Loved that they made me a custom Shrimp Vindaloo (very spicy) that wasn't listed on the menu. He asked prior to ordering, if "I wanted it Indian spicy, or just North American" So I went for spicy and it was delicious! Highly recommend that dish for authentic flavours and spice level customization. We had two appetizers, the shrimp and chicken lollipops - both were good, but go for the shrimp, despite the petite portion, it is far superior!

Very attentive service. Large variety of Indo/Chinese food. Tables are well spaced so that even when crowded, noise level didn’t prevent conversation. Tandoori food prepared so that it remained moist. Roasted eggplant has the perfect amount of heat.

I haven't had this good Indian food in a while. The place was clean. You get a decent meal with great taste. We couldn't even finish the 2 dishes the 2 of us ordered. One of the dishes we wanted wasn' t even on the menu but they made it anyway for us. Great place with great food and clean. Also very friendly personel. In total we had an excellend evening here.

Loved this place! It was our first choice for restaurants in NYC And we were so pleased! We loved the soups, and our meals and the Naan!! The meal was so reasonably priced too!!! We had dinner other places that week and payed twice as much as we payed at Spice Symphony. They are a hidden gem that I’m sharing with everyone I know!
