Marigold flowers lead to the glass door entrance via the small staircase. The beautiful panoramic view of the serene waterfront comforts me and I love the new venue at once. It is none too traditional in its décor and has a very upbeat contemporary feel to it. Both the veg and non-veg tasting menus begin with a dish called ‘Puchkas Five Water’, essentially a take on the humble Kolkata street food. Here the Puchka are bite-sized and decadent with shots of various waters ranging the gamut from tamarind to buttermilk. One of my favourites from the new menu is the deceptively simple dish aka home-style Chicken Curry; this dish is a reference to what Chef Manish’s kitchen team loves to eat on a daily basis at home. Here the chicken is cooked and then shaped into a roulade. The result is remarkably light and marries well with the turmeric rice and preserved onion, an example of modern cooking technique put to good use. Mehrotra has nailed the famous kulchas and is definitive, and has nowhere else to go. The Haji Ali inspired custard cream is as light in texture as its name suggests. Mehrotra is an artist and artists should be permitted to succeed. Good wine list and efficient service despite the crowd.
Wow, Indian Accent was amazing. The tasting menu is absolutely to die for, with an emphasis on service and presentation that cannot be beat. The dishes were consistently between good and incredible, with innovative modern takes on Indian classes and Indian twists on western staples. This was an incredible experience well worth every penny. Their a la carte menu was, though pricey, much more reasonable than the tasting menu and the food also looked fantastic if you want to try out Indian Accent but the tasting menu (3600 rupees as of July 2018) is too much for your wallet.
the food was awesome. dal makhani, panner butter masala are to die for. the aroma of the place is killer
For me the very best restaurants offer an 'experience'. That means it is not just the food, it's the service, the surroundings and the overall ambience. This place is top notch in all!It's part of the Lodhi Hotel although it has it's own entrance. The décor in the place is modern and looks great. Mood lighting adds to the overall ambience.We were shown to our table next to a window overlooking some ponds - lovely.We chose a taster menu with wine, the dishes were puchkas, duck khurchan, baked fish with masala butter, pork spare ribs, sorbet, house chicken curry, tamarind crab, black daal and carror crumble with fig and whisky ice cream. Every dish was stunning in taste but also presentation. The wines were also great.The service was exceptional and we don't have any fault. It's not the cheapest but I absolutely recommend this - 1st class experience.
Reserving a table in advance is a must - be it for dinner or lunch. They took an advance as guarantee on your credit card for the reservation. First time for me such a thing. Its located inside Lodhi Hotel. Have valley parking. Warm welcome. Very good ambience. Very unique menu - Indian fusion as it seemed to me. We tried the Braised lamb dish that just melted in the mouth, Baked paneer and smoked eggplant was yummy. For desert the the winter carrot halwa with fig and whisky ice cream was so rich and unique. Found the Daulat ka chaat served in a very interesting way with currency notes. It's definitely high end in terms of pricing. Portion sizes are small and appropriate considering that the food is very rich

Indian food is considered to be rich and covered in gravy. But Indian Accent has changed all that and created a new definition of our cuisine. The modern avatar of Indian dishes generated by chef Manish Mehrotra are a revelation. He is a genius who tries to give his regulars a change every week. He is innovative and keeps within bounds of the authenticity offering dishes like pulled kathal phulka taco which is essentially a jackfruit wrap.
Duck khurchan cornetto and potato sphere chaat represents as impeccable entrée. Pao bhaji with ricotta wada is exceptional. Tamarind fish with coconut barley reminds of coastal ghat, its each morsel a pleasure to eat. The chef has strewn the menu cleverly playing with textures and different flavours. The menu is written in composed and well thought manner. The plate prepared comes to you a visual delight. The bread bar is unconventional with its chilli hoisin duck kulcha, Applewood smoked bacon kulcha, wild mushroom kulcha. The combinations are so unique and untried in India. Wasabi raita is unheard of! For dessert section he keeps on his winning streak. His mishit doi cannoli and besan ladoo tart is just an extention of his talents. You can also opt for chef’s dessert platter for best of everything. The wine list supplies to every need. Be it champagne or wine it is equipped to match each occasion. The staff is very observant and intuitive to your needs.
The best part of the meal is that the chef comes personally to discuss the meal so you can pick his brain with this awesome bonus. Indian Accent is expensive but worth every penny with its once in a lifetime experience. It maintains its exclusiveness by being hard to find so be prepared to tour friends colony west pretty well. Its location make it even more elusive. Book in advance so you don’t miss out on the restaurant’s hidden delights. If you are fortunate enough to be seated then don’t forget to try chef’s signature dishes. Ask for chef’s table if you have a large gathering so you can watch chef Manish in all his glory. The décor is deceptively simple and classic but the food served is exceptional. Such talent within our reach should be savoured and tried often.
