    Spice Symphony wins the trifecta of attentive and friendly service, generous and excellent south Asian cuisine, and a comfortable spaced out environment where one can have a reasonable conversation with guests. It is also quite reasonable value for an NYC restaurant on the East side of Manhattan.

    It's a very good restaurant, with nice options. I came for the Indo-Chinese menu, but enjoyed my friend's Indian order more. We ordered spinach chaat, which was a standout dish, really great. I ordered Schezuan paneer, which was quite good, but came with fried rice and an egg roll, each of which were very boring. The spicy sauce would have been better complemented by plain,basmati rice, and the samosa would have been much more appealing as an appetizer. The vegetable soup was sweet corn and really not good at all. My friend's thali had amazingly good okra with potatoes, samosa, lentils and lamb that she really enjoyed. It was more food than she could eat, but she enjoyed everything. I was hungry when I finished and had to stop myself from grabbing my friend's dishes like an Indian food vulture.

    It was okay. Wish they had more Indian dishes. My gf likes Indian food and she wasn’t impressed with the menu. Not bad. Just not a broad selection of Indian food. I wish I had taken her elsewhere.

    Food here is always great and amazing so I decided to bring a friend for a birthday dinner who never had indo Chinese. This particular day, it was not super busy, there were plenty of empty tables. But I felt rushed to finish the food and dessert. My friend and I felt interrupted way too many times by staffs asking if we’re done when there were food still left on our plates. It wasn’t like we were sitting silently staring at each other.. Also, what is the point of saying birthday on occasion for reservation if they don’t even bother to give us a candle with dessert.. I love the food here so I’ll still be back for casual dinner but I don’t think I’ll come for special occasion.

    A truly lovely meal with kind, helpful servers. The only negative part of my experience was that there was some obscenely violent movie playing in true tv over the bar, which was right next to my table, I had to keep my eyes down so the images on the screen didn’t ruin my meal. .As a vegan, I love when I can find a place where there are multiple delicious options for me. So many delicious, healthy, traditional and creative dishes in their lovely restaurant. Samosas are my favorite comfort food, and this place makes an outstanding version.

    Really enjoyed our visit to Alice symphony. The items are tasty with the right amount of spice. We tried items from the indochinese menu and enjoyed everything. The chili paneer, Salt and pepper prawns, and chicken Manchurian were all very good. We were also pleasantly surprised by their wine selection and enjoyed the Pinot Grigio offerings.

    Great, classy atmosphere. My wife and I had a great experience with our server Monji, who was knowledgeable, funny, and attentive. We've had cocktails all over the city, but we were surprised at how good our drinks were! The starters/appetizers and mains were delicious. Each of our plates (hot for me, mild for her) had just the right amount of spice.

    Overall food was good. Very noisy. We were put off by the repeated and aggressive way the staff removed plates as soon as we finished a course, without asking permission, and after we asked NOT to remove plates until all of us were done eating. Better for carry out than dine in.

    It was bad. Went in for late lunch reservation. The restaurant was not busy. We sat for 15 minutes with no attention and had to ask for water and menus. Within minutes we were reminded that the kitchen would be closing and we were rushed to order. The food came and the next time we saw a server was half way through the meal when our check was presented. Food quality was satisfactory but service was nonexistent and insensitive. To top off an already bad experience, they failed to credit me points for dining there.

    The guy who took our order refused to return to the table as we were waiting for an appetizer long after the first one was served. After ignoring several polite requests ( while standing against the wall and doing nothing)for attention, he sent over a very junior person who had no idea what we ordered, seemed confused and uncomfortable and went back to him to ask a question about our seeking it. His focus on his elevated stAtus at the expense of serving the customer was a bit frustrating but pretty hilarious. He never approached the table to acknowledge the issue. Clearly too self important for facing the customer again after taking the order He has no idea what business he’s in. Food was surprisingly disappointing -mediocre Indian food. Would try the food again but given the attitude i won’t be back

    Simply the BEST Indian dinning experience on the eastern seaboard!!! From the moment we walked in and were greeted by the manager and also the owner of the resturant to when we got our appetizers and entrees; everything we ate was delicious!!! The service was terrific, especially given the fact that literally every table was taken including the nice bar area at the front. We will for sure be back soon for another amazing Indian night of fantastic cuisine!!

    Monji - he's one of the best best persons to serve anyone - delightful, helpful and lively. Service is par excellence as is the food! I'm Indian yet I thought the food was great and my Jamaican-American guest loved it! Ambience is good and the place does fill up. Like in most restaurants, I have some beef with dim lighting, I'm as blind as a bat after sundown. Still, my growing old will not stop me from wining and dining my Indo-food curious people here!
