A seriously smart modern Indian restaurant in the heart of Mayfair.

Forget liking it hot: Indian Accent is for those of you who like it swish. And I mean Mayfair swish. Multiple shiny-haired hostesses greet you on arrival. The dining room reminds me of the international hotels of the Raj: expensively decorated, with dark woods, opulent marble and smoky mirrors on the ceiling. Plus caramel-toned lighting, piano music and crisp air-conditioning. I’m the only diner not in a suit, but the welcome is no less professional, or genial. ‘How was your day?’ asks the smiling waiter, looking like he actually means it.

The swanky-pants setting is matched by food that’s as high-end as Indian gets. It’s creative. It’s pretty. And yes it’s pricy. There’s a tasting menu (obvs) and a couple of incredible amuse-bouches (aka freebies), though you can get all the best bits on the £55 set menu.

Like insanely tender pork ribs, marinated in a slick of knobbly pickled mango, with syrupy, salty, fiery notes, plus slivers of sundried mango and onion seed on top. Or a pot of shredded lamb, which they slow-roast in ghee (clarified butter) and serve alongside dinky roti pancakes and batons of cucumber and radish. I know what you’re thinking: it’s like duck with pancakes. You’re absolutely right. Earlier, there had been a stunner of a starter: soft, tangy morels with a creamy ’shroom sauce and a parmesan crisp. Later: a creamy, simple, sigh-inducing black dal.

So: it’s ace. Just hope someone else is paying.

Indian Accent says
Indian Accent offers an inventive approach to Indian cuisine. Our menu explores progressive ideas in Indian cuisine while maintaining traditional integrity. It now also features recently added summer plates- an array of precisely executed and imaginative dishes, characterised by seasonal flavours and global ingredients in exciting combinations. Classic dishes are catapulted into the 21st century with must tries including a chicken malai tikka with green chilli cream, sugar snap peas and summer truffle; sea bream with asparagus and kerala coconut moilee; and burrata with fenugreek papdi and tomatoes. New heavenly desserts include the tropical ‘aamras’ - mango, cardamom and summer berries.
