Global critics are agreed. This is India's best restaurant and probably one of the best modern Indian restaurants in the world. Tucked away in the tiny Manor boutique hotel in the residential sprawl of Friend's Colony, this small, simply-decorated restaurant is nearly impossible to find unless you know where to go. Genius chef Manish Mehrotra changes his menu nearly every week but his signature dishes have included Chilean Spare Ribs with pickle flavours and deep Fried Soft Shell Crab with Coconut Chips.
The food at Indian Accent is of the highest quality. The ambience of the restaurant is average. I was surprised to find that they can no longer serve alcohol due to a new City ordinance that prevents them serving alcohol due to there proximity to a major road! The management should really let customers know about this on their website. Even though the food is very, very good I don't feel it deserves to be ranked so highly compared to some other restaurants in Delhi. My visit not helped by being ripped of in the taxi home.
I liked this place. I enjoyed eating a delicious and fun meal here. All of the services here were very good, everyone loved so much. I would like to comeback here.
Tucked away in a manor in Friends Colony, the simple ethnic decor doesn't prepare you for the absolutely amazing meal that you are about to have! the dishes are innovative and the plating is quainty artistic. Chef Manish is a genius. I had a vegetarian meal, and had an array of starters, main course and desserts. It is place to go and have a celebratory special dinner.
My client took me here and we enjoyed the taster menu... wow it was absolutely incredible The staff were all delightful and it had a wonderful ambience Highly recommended. There's also one in New York and one opening in London later in 2017. A must visit
Having heard a lot about this new "fusion" restaurant in Delhi we decided to go. It was a bit of a nuisance to book a table because it had to be done at least 5-6 days in advance. One doesn't really plan on eating a meal like one would a movie! So my husband and me took our daughter for a Sunday lunch. The interiors are very basic, I felt I was entering someone's house. The original bungalow layout seems to have been retained, all the furniture thrown out and replaced by simple tables and chairs with white linen. We've been to something similarly styled in Ottawa but the food there had been home cooked and top class. To come back to Indian Accent, we ordered the Chefs Tasting Menu; Vegetarian for us and non vegetarian for my husband. 1) Most of the dishes had far too much salt ( the pulled pork, bacon wrapped prawns) 2) The fusion combinations were nothing to write home about. 3) The interval between the servings were a bit longer than I would have liked. 4) Dessert was the best part of the meal. For the amount we spent on the meal I could have fed at least 30 poor children and unfortunately that's the only feeling I left with. It was just an overhyped place and I'm positively not going through all the fuss again. Yes and the waiters were serving and clearing plates from across the table! Would have imagined they would know better for a Michelin star restaurant.

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.
