After grand unveilings in New York & New Delhi, Indian Accent is now open to Londoners. Yesterday’s [December 14th] inauguration sees one of the most anticipated openings straight from the peninsular expertise that ropes in rare experimental cuisine spanning fine dining. Voted in World’s Top 50 & decidedly, India’s No.1 restaurant has consistently held one of the highest approval ratings which also got them San Pellegrino Best Restaurant award in India on Asia’s 50 Best List.
Indian Accent is a no run-of-the-mill eatery that serves slapdash items that are high key regular on every Indian menu ever. With an innovative refix on original flavors that tunnels into modern interpretations of pan Indian cuisine, they’re undeniably leading the industry trailblazers by redefining what classic is to recipe finesse for the ones exploring new experiences. London, that’s already pockmarked with South Asian food scene sprawling across neighborhoods is arguably seen as a challenge to penetrate into a segment that’s not only extremely diverse but also a critically demanding hotspot recognized for its intricately linked European & continental shades of consumption patterns. But Indian Accent is braced to bring its gamut of cooking dexterity by blending local & global tastes to appeal a visitor base that vibes beyond Bollywood. To live up the hype, there are exclusively handpicked dishes finely tuned to an attentive audience such as – Kashmiri morels with walnut powder with sides of parmesan papad; soy keema, quail egg and lime leaf butter pao that balances with neo-traditional genre of dishes. Part of cooking highlight would include almost archaic presentations such as, Makhan Malai – a medieval dish made of aerated milk charged with saffron & ghee roast lamb with roomali roti pancakes that’s worth getting in line for. Turning up a notch for differentiation while making a move to relate in cross culinary platter, the experts at Indian Accent are also uniquely rendering pro-British recipes such as black pudding mashed into kulcha flatbreads – which is unlike anything ever seen or heard before.
Rohit Khattar, Chairman of Old World Hospitality [Owner of the Indian Accent brand] says, “We are delighted to bring Indian Accent to London. After a successful run of our other restaurant, “Chor Bizarre” for 20 years at the same location, we hope London embraces Indian Accent with the same warmth.” Their Group Beverage Director, Daniel Beedle whose wine list for the New York location attracted Wine Spectator who eventually went onto putting them in the Best 50 in NYC including another acclaim by Wine Enthusiast that featured them in their Best 100 in USA. Needless to say, drinks & cocktail selection by the same mind & taste doubled it down for Indian Accent’s London location as well. With some of the most popular hits such as, Albemarle Chai Punch – a homemade milk punch featuring Batavia Arrack, Earl Grey, and Virgin Amaro to the exotic rare whiskeys that have been meticulously paired with the Chef’s Tasting Menu.
The ambience too, is noteworthy with a decor inside their twin floored establishment that’s been designed spectacularly drop dead for visitors with authentic Indian bend to greet their presence. The peculiar pearl walls breaks away from the oriental touch with a medieval mixture of contemporary texture around brass & marbled emerald green velvet upholstery. A special private dining option which is also available in their interiors can comfortably host a guest size of upto 12-25 visitors during peak capacity.
