Perfect place to meet a friend for our first indoor lunch of the pandemic. The food as always was delicious and the service superb. Thank you for the impeccable hospitality during such a fraught era 🙏
Great experience! Delicious food!
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.
Incredibly attentive staff, delicious food and cute spot. The staff elevated the delicious food to complete the excellent dining experience.
Food was delicious and service was good. Only issue is the intense staring while you eat.
Spice Symphony has a great ambiance and food is always delicious. They have a great team and an attentive staff. It's great for groups and for date nights. I love their extensive menu and wine selection.
Food is excellent
Tandoori wings were excellent
Chicken Tikka Masala was excellent
Nan was excellent
Drinks were ridiculously awesome
Location is excellent
Service was excellent
In-person Service was lousy because the restaurant and the servers are only focused on the takeout business.
Amazing service and food
Friendly staff made us feel welcome. COVID safe and food was excellent.
Nisar and the food were both excellent as always.
Had the Chicken tikka masala for the first time there and it was delicious. Our waiter, an older man, was so sweet to us. Service was fantastic. Overall a great experience!
Nasar was amazing. Service was perfect and the food was delicious!
Was looking forward to our meal given the great reviews. The restaurant is very nice but all the food was disappointing and lacking flavor. The lamb Rogan Josh had a strong tomato sauce look and taste—very different than any version I ever had. The shrimp Malisee was good but the sauce was very lacking in flavor. I was expecting much more especially since almost every diner was Indian. Had expected a more authentic spice flavor especially given the name of the restaurant. Bummer. Was hoping for a great Indian meal.
A good place! Variety of Indian food, good options for non meat eaters (which was especially important to us). Polite and caring Indian staff, which together create a unique atmosphere of distinctive India. Special thanks to the manager named Nisar. We tried everything he recommended and everything turned out to be amazingly tasty!
Wonderful ambience and outstanding food and service!
The food was good - we sat outside - a little chilly. They have heaters but they are very high & you can’t feel the effects too well.
Food was outstanding, as was the service. Spice Symphony is a restaurant with an elegant feel, yet at the same time casual and relaxing. The host and servers made everyone feel welcome.
Wonderful food! Would 100% recommend
Best Indian food I’ve ever had. Great service, too.
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.
