What’s So Special?

The food at Indian Accent has put Indian cuisine on a global culinary map. Simple and traditional dishes have been given a quirky twist.

Comfort food that is full of flavour and simplicity of spices is what this fine-dining experience is all about, but it’s the formula behind the mix and match that makes everything here stand out.

Why Is It Expensive?

“It is expensive. No doubt about it. But there is a lot of hard work that goes into making every dish. We never compromise on the quality of ingredients and cut corners in terms of service or experience. It’s worth the experience,” says Chef Manish Mehrotra, who has also been called the most exciting modern Indian chef in the world today.

What’s The Secret Ingredient?

Chef Manish wants to change how Indian food is perceived around the globe. “It’s the motivation to make sure that real Indian food becomes more famous in the world. People outside India know about it and not just Chicken Tikka Masala kind of Indian food. The due respect that Indian food deserves it should get that respect.”
