Great food , Brilliant service , Lovely staff
Absolutely loved the atmosphere and creative menu.
Would recommend for a special occasion. Expensive, but worth it. And great margaritas!
The food is UNBELIEVABLE!!!! The service is great. Great to celebrate any special occasion.
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
Fabulous flavours and a light meal that never disappoints
Amazing! Had a great time, visited for my girlfiends bday. Had the chef taster menu - the dhaal is probably one of the best ive ever tasted and im punjabi!
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!
Very pricey for tiny plates. But the food was quite interesting.
Excellent food, service and lovely ambience. Will definitely go back.
Very harsh in their approach to bookings- they make it clear that they are doing you a favour by allowing you to come. Food was ok, but expensive. Service was not very prompt and they had run out of two of the wines. Staff have a negative approach to everything, which detracted from the enjoyment.
Going away dinner
One of the most outstanding meals I've had in a long time. Sublime.
Interesting combinations of flavours and a really nice vibe! Fantastic food and cocktails
In comparison to Indian Accent New Delhi, this restaurant is underwhelming. The service was slow and inattentive to say the least. We waited 15 minutes to be seated despite arriving on time and with prior reservation- then waited 25 minutes for our order to be taken. The food was alright but the server wasn't helpful with pairings. Most surprisingly we found items we had not ordered on the bill!- this was completely unexpected at a restaurant of its standard. All in all, I think the restaurant really needs to pick up on their customer service- food alone will not suffice as the Indian food scene in London is quite competitive.
I booked this venue back in February for my wifes birthday and was a little concerned having some seen some recent reviews. I didn't need to worry the food was excellent.
Fantastic food and impeccable service. Had a wonderful time.
Always a great experience!
Superb food, excellent spicing and very friendly staff. Also good for children, as they serve smaller portions.
Will definitely come again!
Amazing place! Food was possibly the best ever! I recommend this place..although you may need to save your pennies beforehand
Food is great here. I feel the staff are all friendly but lacked coordination with each other and we felt quite swamped at one point. The ambience is nice but needs some light music to help. Food and ambience didn't match.
We were very excited to try this restaurant and extremely disappointed with our experience. Although the surprise from the kitchen as a starter was delicious and a first course of salmon lovely, the experience went downhill from there. We had two main courses and both were feeble. The chicken with asparagus had no flavour of interest whatsoever and the slowly braised lamb in rice came out only mildly warm and seemed old and reheated. We were shocked. The staff was distant and disinterested. I don't understand what the hype about this place is. We were happy to get out of there! Never again!!
While the food was excellent - quality, the accompanying service was not as expected. Waiters were eager to clear the table leaving us feeling rushed. The lighting was poor, the menu needed clarification, and the quantities were "measured"! Overall, very poor value!
We went to indian accent based on our past experience and were a bit disappointed and underwhelmed by our experience. The three course tasting menu - still advertised on the website had been discontinued earlier in the week. As the seven course tasting menu is too big, we had to order a la carte. The food food portions are small and didn't feel good value at all. Chicken malai main at £20+ was 3-4 small pieces of chicken with some sauce. Mushroom kulcha at £7 was a tiny portion. Black dal at £7 had very few lentils and was a thin soup. The chocolate dessert at £11 was a small chocolate ball in the middle of a plate with some rum poured on top.
Service was poor as some servers didn't seem to understand what we were ordering even from the menu, especially the drinks.
The restaurant seems to have built a good customer base based on its initial offering. However, by cutting out its food offering and menu choice, results in poor value for money. The kulch and dal that were sides in the three course menu seem quite expensive when ordered individually. Also I dont see the point of ordering the very small first pre starter course and that seems expensive too.
There are several other high end Indian restaurants in the market and the a la carte menu of Indian accent doesn't work due to small portion sizes. Other similarly priced restaurants offer much better portion sizes and value for money.
The management need to re think their strategy and think from the perspective of a diner in terms of value we get for the money we spend.
We had the 7 course taster menu and my husband opted for the whiskey flight - very clever!
Outstanding food, knowledgable and helpful staff. Very busy restaurant with a great atmosphere. Would highly recommend to those looking for a different Indian experience. A must visit!
Good Food but got Conned by the Menu on Website
So let me start with saying that i am a great fan of Chef Manish Mehrotra and have had pleasure of getting served by his greatly at his original restaurant Indian Accent in Delhi.
Thinking that this would not be just another franchise and the best Indian food will be at display I booked the place and already decided on £55 - 3 course menu that you can access through their website, also we booked it a couple of month in advance. For this review as it was supposed to be such an important culinary experience for me will be a comparative of Delhi Restaurant and London, and I decide to do it a bit Tech Radar Style.
So lets get it cracking -
Ambiance - 1.5/5
The restaurant if you compare with the Delhi one does not stand a chance at all. There is definite corners that have been cut and looks like any other restaurant in London, I am confident enough to go as far as saying that Dishoom (Anyone) is much more chic, posh, and Indian than this. There is nothing Indian about it - lets just say that.
Service - 3/5
Although everyone was great and courteous but nothing again if you compare with the Delhi staff. The finesse was lacking, the love of Indian food was no where and it left me longing for a step to step description of such interesting dishes , which you get at their Delhi restaurant. Again an average experience . How could it would have been Indian and Better, I mean Indian Royalty literally taught the world to how be royally splurgy. So just go back to your roots.
Food - 5/5
The food, well then what do I say it is Michelin Star level to say the least. It looks brilliant, smells even great, and taste? It is a ratatouille moment every time. Top marks to the Chef and his team.
All in all, i do not complain about the hard work that people here are putting in, the waiters, the captain, the reception girls. They are brilliant, all they need is a bit of direction and a bit more training in Indian food. And also the franc
Like the room and decor, great menu and cocktails, innovative Indian dishes. Service was pleasant but uneven.
Delicious food and a lot of it! We were stuffed after having the 3 course menu. Each dish was beautifully crafted and tasted v authentic.
The food was outstanding, simple yet inventive and full of flavour. We had brunch for the table, there was a little too much for the two of us!
The wine selection was adventurous but I thought it overpriced.
Service was, on the whole, attentive but they had to apologise twice for delays - once in taking our order and then for the wait for the second course.
Great food and very polite staff . The innovation and quality is brilliant
However would have liked more space . We were 5 so a bit cramped and hot on our table
We visited Indian Accent in New Delhi before so decided to try the London restaurant for our date night. Beautiful food, fab cocktails, wonderful and attentive service, great ambience - we will be back!
Food was excellent as always. Service was painfully slow. The two of us got our starters 55mins after arriving and each subsequent course took ages. Bit of a shame as I went with a friend who hadn’t been before.
The gap between the dishes was way too long. We were there for an additional hour between dishes just waiting for it to arrive on our table. This is more of a feedback rather than criticism. The food was otherwise good. May not go back again.
Very inventive, delicious food. We tried the 8-course menu, with a couple of cocktails each. Every single item we tried was fantastic. Great for vegetarians and carnivores alike.
Lovely vegan tasting menu. Delicious. Only a couple of things to pick up on... would be nice if the main course element of the dishes had a gravy / daal type element. And some sort of sponge with the fruit dessert dish. Would make this epic experience. Wonderful service and presentation. We had a lovely time and will definitely return. Thank you
Food was excellent and service was outstanding.
Great experience! Will return again. Worth the price.
It’s an awesome place to have Indian food. Recipes are very thoughtful and presentation of the food is superb. A fine dining place, will definitely go back.
We have dined at the Delhi Indian Accent on more than one occasion and it was phenomenal both times. Our experience at the London one had a high standard to match and can be summed up as:
Very delicious food overall
Good for the experience to go once
The desserts were really disappointing for £7 each - please put the Misti Doi on the menu! They are way too simple and small for what the rest of the menu was.
Menu has no indication of what is vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, nut free etc.
The size of the sides were rather small again for the price paid - the Delhi one gave way larger portions
The restaurant setting does not feel Indian at all and is really dark and tables were too close together.
Food was very substandard. Even if I had paid a tenth of the price. Only the daal was decent. Wine choice was fine. Price driven by presentation, location and expectation of what it should be but clearly is not. Very disappointing.
Had a wonderful meal tonight. The atmosphere was spot on, great service and the food was to die for. I especially enjoyed the soy keema, black dal and makhan malai. Expensive but worth it.
