Wow! Really amazing Indian food with a series of interesting twists. Flavours explode from each dish. Myself and my colleague were already fans of classic Indian food but this is a game changer and very exciting. The staff were very knowledgable about the food and were able to advise on constructing an interesting meal of 3 courses plus dessert.

Amongst highlights are mathri trio, soy keema (remarkable), sweet pickle ribs, sea bass, ghee roast lamb.

My only disappointment was that they don’t serve Indian beers eg Kingfisher. That’s a mistake and hence I deduct 1 star!

Very inventive Indian food kind that kind of blew me away. I’m used to some pretty decent Indian food traveling frequently to the UK for fun and business but Indian Accent puts a twist on most of their dishes that’s fun and inventive while maintaining a distinctly Indian flair. I thoroughly enjoyed the meal and will definitely come back, we are actually returning to the same hotel in a few weeks so may be soon.

We stumbled across this absolute gem of a restaurant on a recent trip to New York and loved it so much we booked it again for our last night in the city. The first time we went we sat at the bar, which was amazing as we were able to watch the fabulous bar staff at close range creating delicious cocktails in impressive style. They also guided us through the wonderful menu and as a result we would highly recommend the Soft Shell Crab along with the Butter Chicken Kulcha and the Pork Dumplings. We would definitely return here on a future visit to NYC.

Booked a few weeks ahead but got the first table as you enter the restaurant. Got a cold draft every time someone came onto the restaurant. Tasting menu or mandatory 3 course are the only options. So you end up getting food that you don’t really want. The only thing “Indian” about the restaurant is the name. Could not see any Indian beers on the drinks menu. The ribs were really fantastic but more what you expect to get in a BBQ restaurant. The Sea bass was excellent but the accompanying rice was not good. Crab claws had hardly any meat at all. The lamb signature dish was a real disappointment. Heavy sauce that lacked any subtlety. Also the lamb seemed like it had been hanging around for a while. Service is very efficient.
It was the most expensive meal I had in NYC all week but the least enjoyable. I would not return.

We love Indian food and love the growing number of “fine dining” Indian restaurants. Indian Accents was much anticipated, and 100% delivered! Fantastic food, excellent service by Kenneth, and Ritza (hope I have that right), and great attention by manager, Ronaldo (let’s do it, again in London).

An outstanding evening at a wonderful restaurant. We’ll be back! Oh!, and by the way, the “Malai Chicken Tikka” is out of this world! Thank you guys, a great evening!
