Food was very well presented, and a nice take on fine Indian dining. Service was a little lacklustre and not quite up to scratch to comparably priced restaurants.

We had the set lunch menu. The starter was nice , the main was extremely average and we didn’t particularly think the food was outstanding or worth the price.
Cocktails were nice.

Best Indian restaurant in London.
Everything was so testy and pretty good quality.
The atmosphere could be a bit .... cold but, if you wanna try a good Indian food in London, this is the place

An excellent option for Indian cuisine but we were let down by the hype of Indian Accent being rated No 1 in India. The service left a lot to be desired for and was very transactional with no warmth whatsoever. The foot was hit and miss. The Pav Bhaji and the Malai Sweet Corn were superb and overall there was good value with the Afternoon Express Lunch Set Menu option. The finale with the Makhan Malai dessert was outstanding and helped gain the 4 out of 5 score.

:( We couldn’t finish our meal. We were stuffed but couldn’t take our food home (no containers). Everything else was fantastic. The birthday complimentary cheesecake was not good. Did not eat it! The treacle cake was fab.

The experience was surreal, one of the best places to dine for an Indian Food experience. The location is perfect and the overall service is flawless. By far the best Black Daal (or Dairy Daal) I have had in the world. Yes the world.

We wanted to go for a special meal for our 20th wedding anniversary with our teenage boys. The 7 course taster menu was beautiful. Everyone loved it! And the chef made us an extra dessert which was lovely. They made our anniversary very special.

The food and service were expceptional. Went on a weekday lunchtime, when it was a bit stayed, but I can imagine it being jollier in the evening. It is expensive, but it is worth it, to taste such formidable spicing.

The initial drinks waiter not very helpful in helping us to get what we wanted. He was trying to push my partner onto hat he thought she should have. I was asked no less than 5 times if we needed water. Food was excellent the flavors still impressive as before. The menu changed slightly and I was a bit apprehensive on the new Paneer dish but needn't have concerned too much as was delicious.

One of the best meals I've ever had. We did the 7 course tasting menu, which I highly recommend. Beautiful service (but still friendly and helpful to those of us who needed a little coaching on how to eat each dish), brilliant food, stylish room. The best blend of "enjoying five star cuisine" and "being relaxed and feeling at home in a restaurant" I think I've ever experienced.

The dishes offered are mediocre and overpriced. I do not consider £5 for a naan half the size of what 's served in not such 'high end' restaurants justified. The restaurant is dark, which is unnecessary as ambience can be achieved in many other ways. Tables too close together. Will not be visiting again.

Quite enjoyed our meal here. Nice distinct flavours in each dish. Portions are tiny but everything we had was very rich.
Some servers were very thorough with explanations of each dish. Ours was less so, but perhaps he thought we knew the menu and Indian food in general.
The Lamb served with chutneys and roti was heavy but good. Chicken salad lovely. Vegetarian dish of sweet potato topped with pea fritter was heavenly
The cocktails were average and the flavours described became muddled.
Service was good but started to slip as the place filled up.
Decor is more formal than we expected, and not at all “ Indian “.
However it didn’t matter, we liked the food enough to go back again and again.

Good quality food, if a little on the small side portion wise (even for a restaurant of this type). Was given bill after just over an hour without asking for it and felt like we were being ushered out. Not ideal, especially as we arrived early and the place was empty.

We tried the Tasting Menu and were not disappointed. Every course was absolutely delicious. Beautifully presented and carefully spiced to stimulate your taste buds. We really enjoyed every course. Service was outstanding. Very attentive without being too intrusive. We have also been to the Delhi restaurant - we thought the food was just as good here but preferred the ambience of Delhi. Prices are also much higher in London. The price is the only downside but you have to expect to pay a lot for a Tasting Menu especially when the quality is as high as this. Loved it!

This restaurant has opened in place of one of our favourites the Chor Bizarre. We were 10 minutes early and wanted to have a drink at the bar. The front of the house lady was rude, snapped that the bar area was full and we should come back later or wait outside! food taste was great and ingredients were good but portions were tiny. we had to order 3 of each dish to create a reasonable portion. for 4 of us the bill was £270, 3 people had beers and I had water. Worst of all was their "bread", tiny pieces served on small side pates, each for £5 !! talented chef, shame about the concept.

This is not a very traditional Indian restaurant . It’s an Indian restaurant with Western touch . Their hospitality at its best . The food taste is still lingering on my tonque. The best sea bass I have ever had in my life and their dessert is to die for. I can’t atop raving about the food. Ambience is classy . I would definitely go here again.

Indian food with a twist... so refreshing to the palate! One of my guests had a unique dietary requirement and they did exceptionally well catering for his and all of our needs. The chef personally came and checked with us and took charge of the food. We really enjoyed the food and were impressed with the unique touch to Indian cuisine.

Save your time and go to Gymkhana right next door. Both places do not profess to serve authentic/ traditional Indian food, but Gymkhana reinterprets the cuisine 50x times better. At Indian Accent the only dish that was tasty was the complimentary amuse bouche -- a mini blue cheese naan paired with a shot of pumpkin curry. Everything else was too sweet or bland or one-note; there was none of the complexity and punchiness that results from skilful use of Indian herbs and spices.

Went with high expectations but sadly very disappointed. We are vegetarians and can’t believe the prices of such small portions. The food also came out very fast - not usually a bad thing but it was pretty clear that it came straight out of the freezer and into the microwave! I know

This was such a disappointing dining experience. The women at coat check were unprofessional. 30 mins to be seated, 15 mins for water. The waiters were awkward, couldn’t problem solve. We got our mains about 3 mins after we finished our starter. Once our mains were done it was 25 mins before we were asked if we wanted dessert. Additionally no apology at the end either!! While the food was good the service was truly appalling! We have better service at the local Indian restaurant... if you’re going to charge £105 for 2 courses for 2 people you need to sort your staff out!
