About the Restaurant

Indian Accent at The Manor, New Delhi serves Indian food for the twenty first century with a unique marriage of global ingredients and techniques with the flavours and traditions of India.

Indian Accent has opted for that rare interior in today’s times – a comfortable, no nonsense dining room. Overlooking the cool verandah and the lush lawn, the restaurant has a private dining room and a bar with a stunning onyx counter. Two gigantic silver diya trees of life also provide an Indian accent to the otherwise contemporary décor. With marigold and frangipani flowers as omnipresent leitmotifs, the restaurant welcomes you on a unique culinary journey.

The restaurant’s path-breaking contemporary Indian menu has been designed by Chef Manish Mehrotra, Old World Hospitality’s Corporate Chef - Luxury Dining. Manish’s creativity is showcased by the unique amalgamation of the freshest local produce combining home style nostalgic tastes with unusual ingredients from across the world. The result is a menu that excites the adventurous yet satisfies traditional palates.

Chef’s tasting menu paired with wines are the pièce de résistance of Indian Accent and offer incredible value for money.

You can enjoy a lazy breakfast or brunch, lunch, high tea, dinner and late night coffee and desserts at Indian Accent.

Chef Manish Mehrotra

Chef Manish Mehrotra, a graduate from the Institute of Hotel Management, Catering Technology and Applied Nutrition, Mumbai (1996), joined Thai Pavilion restaurant at Taj President, Mumbai and trained under the expert guidance of master chefs from Thailand. During his tenure of 5 years with the Taj group, Manish organised various Thai Food Festivals at different properties of the group. He also won several medals at various competitions
organised by the Culinary Associations of India.

He then joined Old World Hospitality Pvt. Ltd. (O.W.H), where he headed the pan Asian kitchens at Habitat World, India Habitat Centre, New Delhi. With a branch in Noida too, Oriental Octopus is regarded as one of the finest pan Asian restaurants in the city. With O.W.H, Manish has been on various culinary expeditions including training stints at top restaurants in the East.

In 2006, Manish moved with O.W.H to set up Tamarai, London. Within a short span, Tamarai has earned rave reviews from diners and critics for its cuisine 'Best pan Asian in London' (E.S. Magazine) and has also won awards for 'The Best Wine List' and 'The Best Late Night Bar in U.K'. He then brought in his unique inventive vision to creating a path breaking menu at Indian Accent, the fine dining restaurant at The Manor (New Delhi), which has been celebrated by all the critics with the crowning story being 'The Best Modern Indian Restaurant' The Vir Sanghvi Award 2009.

Chef Manish has just returned from Singapore, after participating at the World Gourmet Summit as a Masterchef, where he cooked at a premium restaurant and also conducted master classes and workshops for the delegates.
