With the Pandemic regulations the restaurant struggles to keep up its reservations, while food is amazingly great
The food makes the struggle worth it.
While they didn't seat us till 15 mins after the scheduled reservation. We ordered right away when we arrived at 9:15pm.
They were courteous and kept us busy with some free appetizers, they gave us our food as to go, just before they had to close down.
I was there during the summer around July this year and the food was amazing. Last night me and my friends thought this would be the perfect place for Diwali dinner. We made reservation at 8:15 because opentable didn’t have the correct timing for availability due to Covid we were sat at our table around 8:45. Which I am completely ok with due to the circumstances. It took about 15min to get a menu. We ordered our meal right way since the restaurant closes at 10pm. We got half of our order at 9:45pm and the other half we had to remind our server the missing dishes. The worst dish last night was the vegetable Manchurian with gravy, I had this before at their place and it was very good but last night everything seemed disorganized. I was very disappointed with their service and quality of food. Vegetable Manchurian was soggy and gravy was watery lasted like they just poured sour cream on the Manchurian balls. In my opinion I don’t think any fine dining should use Covid as an excuse for bad food.
Great food and great service. Their check were reassuring at this time of pandemic.
This restaurant was very busy with outdoor as well as indoor dining. The service was a little slow as I think they were overwhelmed with all the diners.
A very good blend on Chinese and Indian food. Would definitely patronize again.
Delicious food. Attentive service. Sole complaint is that they are cheap with their scotch. I highly recommend it. The Indian Chinese fusion is innovative and tasty.
Outdoor seating was fine. Service was very slow. Kind staff
Perfect every time I come. Best Indian food in nyc.
Very pleasant with great service....top-notch!
Amazing in every sense. The food was full of flavor and portions were good. Wait staff was so attentive and helpful with recommendations, I can’t wait to go back.
Owner is very nice
Food is great
Atmosphere is great
Drinks are exotic
Great Indian in nyc
Outdoor seating was awesome food perfect Indian Chinese spicy as varied as one wants
Had a wonderful experience at Spice symphony, they accommodated us really well, the food was delicious, the service was pretty good (but a little delayed but nothing worth complaining about). Overall highly recommended!
I had the most fantastic meal at Spice Symphony on 50th Street. I started with a mixed green salad, which was very nice. I then had the goan fish curry with rice and tandoori roti. It was absolutely delicious. The curry was tomato-based, and went so well with both the fish and the bread. I finished with the coconut caramel flan, which was also terrific. The service was excellent and the prices were very reasonable. One of the best Indian restaurants in NYC.
Great outside seating with excellent service and delicious food.
Food was beyond tasty!
The flavors were quite marvelous. Spicy drinks are the way to go! It was also beautiful to look at. Had a great time with my date!
Outstanding food quality and service. Super helpful and friendly staff. Would go back in a nanosecond.
This was our first meal out since the start of all this madness. Glad we chose to come to our favorite... Spice Symphony - 50th street. Maitre D Ninad was welcoming, as always!! Sat outside and it was great. Felt EXTREMELY safe. Immediately given hand sanitizer and entire staff wore masks and kept a comfortable distance at all times. Flatware and napkins were individually wrapped to ensure additional safety. Food always fresh and flavorful and everything Ninad has recommended has always been fantastic. Lamb Saag, Avocado marinated chicken, Pashwari Naan …. I could go on. Great meal !! If you are goin out to dinner, this place is a must.
Staff was very attentive to my guest and I. They were able to quickly move our table indoors once it started raining. We were both given a brief lesson on Indian cuisine. We will return.
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
