Lovely dining rooom with very courteous staff. Good range of tasty food. Four separate dishes and we all enjoyed our options. We eat Indian food a couple of times each month and this was good overall. Prices are also very reasonable too.

Spice Symphony was a pleasant surprise. Since we usually do not dine outside our comfort zone, we were a little apprehensive about trying the Indian and Chinese selections. From the beginning, our server was patient and informative and upon his suggestion, we tried a smoked Chicken appetizer that was fabulous. We shared the ground lamb kebabs and selected a vegetable side dish that went perfectly over rice or for dipping with the delicious Naam side order. Our whole dining experience was wonderful from start to finish. We can't wait to go back.

I searched online reviews for a restaurant for a dinner with my cousin that offered good food and an atmosphere conducive to conversation. Spice Symphony delivered both. We were greeted cordially, shown immediately to our table, and enjoyed attentive (but not overbearing) service throughout the evening. We tried a sampling of vegetarian dishes (dal makhani, palak paneer, okra) and a special shrimp dish. All were delicious -- we both kept eating until we could eat no more. We felt no pressure to vacate the table. I will return at my first opportunity.

Had a wonderful dinner tonight! My husband and I found out about spice symphony from all there wonderful reviews. While we were in the city we wanted to go here, while we were at diner our brother and sister in law said they needed up being able to come, they quickly made our table from 2 to 4 people. The service was great, the food amazing, and great drinks too. They also somehow knew it was my birthday, brought out a dessert and a card signed by the staff. They were all so nice! We will definitely be back again. Thanks for a wonderful evening!

Went to Spice Symphony based on prior Trip Advisor recommendations to celebrate wife's birthday. Was not disappointed in ANY WAY. Greeted warmly by staff and seated promptly. From start to finish, the dining experience was excellent. Aldi provided us with excellent service, making suggestions as to what and how much to order. The chef's complimentary started was delicious, as was everything we ordered - including fried spinach leaves, chicken vindaloo and an eggplant entrée. Large, delicious portions left us with no room for dessert. However, Aldi presented us with a birthday dessert, accompanied by a staff rendition of "Happy Birthday".
Cannot recommend Spice Symphony too much, and it will certainly be on the top of our list to return to upon our next visit to NYC. Thank you to Aldi and the entire staff for making this a memorable dinner.

Had the chicken tikka masala set lunch and it was delicious -- well prepared, generously portioned and just the right spiciness. Low ambient noise allows for talking with my lunch companion. Service was excellent. Definitely recommended.

The Spice Symphony delivered on its rave reviews...wonderful Indian food in a casual, yet elegant setting. The service couldn't have been more attentive, and the food incredible. Our server suggested off the menu dishes which included lamb chops and a smoked lamb dish. Wow, it was awesome. I highly recommend.

I eat Indian food a couple of times a week. We have two exceptional Indian restaurants in Bermuda. From the outside this place does not look special. Once inside however they have a beautiful bar area and a very nice restaurant. The staff were superb especially Vijay who served us. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was was excellent. The menu is somewhat restricted. I didn't see the variety of dishes I normally see in an Indian restaurant but the items they have are excellent. A very nice experience.

A colleague suggested this restaurant and I'm glad she did! She was familiar with the dishes and we selected the ones we thought we might most enjoy. The portion sizes were reasonable an we were able to share one main dish with a side of vegetables and two kinds of naan which was sufficient.

Good food but rather erratic service. On arrival and being seated we were presented with 2 wine lists but no food menus and had to ask for these as well as having to attract attention when we wanted to order. Noise levels were extremely high which was quite stressful.

The greeter and servers were friendly. There seemed to be a respect issue toward the greeter (female) from the servers (males). I felt uncomfortable with it and would suggest the show more kindness toward her. It could come off to some as chauvenistic.
The food was flavorful and the table service was great. Our server checked in at appropriate junctures and gave us great advice on the menu. My only issue was the presentation of the food. They used a metal tray with several metal bowels surrounding rice that was placed in the middle of the tray. The presentation brought to mind the containers one would use to feed pets; not appropriate for people. The two issues are enough to make me wary, but not enough to preclude me giving them a second chance.

The service was friendly and efficient. My daughter and I went for an early dinner before she left for the airport and had a delightful and delicious meal. The menu features some unusual items and the waiter was knowledgeable and helpful in steering us toward new things to try. The eggplant and the lamb chops were standouts. will definitely return.
