After enjoying success in both Delhi and New York, Indian Accent is now set to open in Mumbai.
Meals at Indian Accent open with tiny tumblers of pumpkin and coconut shorba and miniature blue cheese naans. The starters, mains and desserts are all as good as the amuse bouche. Those who have been to the restaurant know and understand its irresistible charm, which includes sorbets for palate cleansers.
Indian Accent has taken Delhi by storm ever since its opening in 2009. Even today, enthusiastic diners rush to secure a booking at the popular restaurant where the kitchen runs under the tutelage of Chef Manish Mehrotra. Chef Manish Mehrotra has been a trailblazer when it comes to fusion food. He combined Indian flavours and culinary traditions with global ingredients and techniques for the menu at Indian Accent, which became an instant hit.
The restaurant has been well known for serving innovative dishes like gol guppa with five waters, potato sphere chaat with white pea ragda, pulled pork phulka taco, meetha aachar pork ribs, ghee roast mutton boti with roomali roti pancake, pao bhaji with kaffir lime butter pao, chicken tikka meatballs and fried prawns with goan red rice pulao. Desserts like the Old Monk rum ball and daulat ki chaat with rose petal chikki have gone on to become classics.
Indian Accent is owned and operated by EHV International, which is part of the Old World Hospitality group. The restaurant has won many accolades, including being at No. 22 on Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list. It has been awarded the Best Restaurant in India by Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants every year from 2015 to 2021. It is also part of the Time Magazine, 100 Great Destinations in the World.

““For many years we have explored locations in Mumbai for Indian Accent and our search has ended at the spectacular Jio World Centre, the new epicenter of Mumbai. Indian Accent has a very loyal clientele of discerning guests from Mumbai. So we are particularly thrilled to be able to bring the Indian Accent experience to this vibrant city and look forward to it embracing us as warmly as New Delhi and New York have,” said restaurateur Rohit Khattar, Chairman at EHV and the man behind Indian Accent and Old World Hospitality’s other establishments.
The kitchen at Indian Accent Mumbai will be run by Executive Chef Shantanu Mehrotra who has been Executive Chef of Indian Accent, New Delhi since its opening under the guidance of Chef Manish Mehrotra, who is the creator of the menu and has been promoted to Culinary Director. Rijul Gulati will take the position of Head Chef and Varun Sharma, who leads the award-winning bar at EHV’s other restaurant, Comorin, has been appointed to head the bar programme.
To say that Mumbai is about to get lucky would be an understatement. With a restaurant that has taught India what contemporary Indian food means, the city surely has a lot to look forward to.
