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.

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!

Had dinner here for the first time and was blown away by the food! The flavors and presentation of the food were wonderful! I had the Vegetable Biryani. It came to the table in a large "mountain" shape in a bowl to be scooped out onto my dinner plate. The freshness and "al dente" texture of the vegetables integrated with the savory basmati rice were a feast for ones eyes. The taste was amazing...one of the best Vegetable Biryanis I've ever eaten. As a vegetarian, this is my "go-to" dish to test out Indian restaurants and Spice Symphony took top honors!

My dining companions had the Shrimp Biryani, which she loved and the other 2 ladies had the Chicken Tikka Masala...and they both also raved about that dish too!

I had the Curried Cauliflower Soup as a starter. The flavor was amazing and the texture was smooth, creamy and delicious. The best Curried Cauliflower Soup ever! I could have eaten another bowl but wanted to save room for my entree!

Can't wait to visit NYC again to go to Spice Symphony for another fantastic meal!

We would not recommend this place - Despite having an OpenTable reservation and the restaurant having only three tables occupied, we were seated at a table under a leaking AC unit and were told that it's the most comfortable seat in the house and that the AC unit leaks just a little bit and we should be just fine. We came for Indian food, but we were asked if we are familiar with Indian food and were suggested to try the Chinese food they offer as well, and that is kind of unexpected in an Indian restaurant. The food was mediocre (both the Indian my wife and I ordered and the Chinese our daughter ordered). At the end we were asked to leave a good review online - which confirms the suspicion why a restaurant with such great reviews is in fact mediocre at everything (food, service, ambiance, etc.)

Very good Indian restaurant, affordable for NYC. Our server was amazing, service was prompt and professional. Food was excellent, even gave use extra rice for our leftovers. Portions very generous. Overall, an excellent choice for an evening out in midtown Manhattan. About a 20 minute walk from the theater district.
