This restaurant deserves to rise in the ranks of Indian restaurants in London. However, it is not traditional Indian food; rather, Indian Accent serves a modern iteration informed by Western ingredients and tastes, all done in beautiful presentation style. By this I do not mean that this is Indian food "dumbed down" for Westerners. Instead, it is a fusion that touches Indian cuisine with high quality western ingredients and combinations while retaining India's distinctive flavors. For that reason, it actually is a good introduction to Indian cuisine -- presenting the "accent" but in a language in which non-Indians with discerning palates may hear familiar words. A morel mushroom appetizer was absolutely divine. Everything was. Service was good, too. It is a little annoying to have to adhere to one of two seatings -- 6:30 and 9:00 -- for groups of five or more, five or six people not being an abnormally large group, but that's required, together with a credit card for a penalty of GBP30 per person for no-shows. But this is a clear direction for high end restaurants. It's a lovely place. Can't wait to return.
