Indian Accent

Another Indian Accent outpost opened tail end 2017, this one in London’s Mayfair neighborhood. Chef and owner Manish Mehrotra cultivates Indian street fare and nostalgic classics into creative, modern Indian dishes, with an occasional twist.

Prices shown are for lunch a la carte but ordering the 2- or 3-course meals shaves off a few pounds.
