Best Indian food anywhere! Food was over-the-top delicious, service friendly and helpful and prices very reasonable. We had Chicken Tikka Masala, Dhaniwal Korma (lamb) and Garlic Naan. Soooo good! We eat here whenever we are in New York, and it is always our most delicious and memorable meal.

I have been coming to this restaurant for 5+ years. This is the first time I was disappointed in the dish I ordered, I am hoping that things will get better as we get out of covid, otherwise I would have to find another Indian restaurant that I can go to when visiting the city!!!

Spice Symphony is a longtime favorite, we frequent the Murray Hill location and will do the same with the 50th Street locale. A wonderful dinner with such fragrant spices and tastes, as well as impeccable service. It's good to be back to dining out!

Nisor was able to listen to our spice preferences and we thought it was perfect. Restaurants talk a lot about how they are cleaning but this is over the top clean. Loved that. Loved the entire experience.

Had a lovely dinner with my husband while in NY for a short vacation. Food was flavorful, excellently prepared and perfectly spiced. The portions were generous, so leftovers were a great lunch the next day.
Service was professional and attentive but not intrusive. Tasteful decor. Relaxing quiet atmosphere. Will definitely go again when we next visit New York.

Attentive service; excellent food, bold flavors...something I like and expect for Indian cuisine. Wide variety of dishes to choose from and I think a real value for a midtown restaurant!

I choose this restaurant based on open table ratings, but it was overpriced. Even food looks good, I could eat for half of price and with better taste in Chinatown (and I understand it is located in 50th street, but still). The staff was in general nice, but one of the supervisors was pretty rude. I felt the pressure to ask for more food, even when I don’t needed.
The only thing I loved in this place were the rolls. I really enjoyed them, but again it was really just 2 small rolls.
This is my third time in New York and this place is not going to be in my to do list.

This Indian Chinese restaurant rivals the tastes of Indian cuisine available in the East. I haven’t had better Indian in the United States. It is a must meal if you like authentic Indian!

One of the BEST Indian restaurants ever!

We went there to celebrate a friend's birthday and the restaurant did not disappoint. The place is very elegant, CLEAN and classy. I appreciate that all covid-19 safety precautions were followed - social distancing, temperature checking, face masks, etc.

Service is FABULOUS. They were very attentive, friendly +and accommodating of our questions and request (have a desert with candle for the birthday girl, promptly gave us take out bags and boxes when needed, promptly refilled our water).

And the food, THE FOOD is delicious. I cannot stress it any further that it was one of the most delicious and authentic Indian food that we have. Everything was just in the right amount and we did not feel disgusted at all. I definitely recommend their MANGO LASI if you want something refreshing and invigorating.

All of us (party of 6) were very impressed and happy with our decision and we would definitely come again. We all had a great time. 10/10 would recommend and come again.
