About The Restaurant
The restaurant’s path-breaking contemporary Indian menu has been designed by Chef Manish Mehrotra, Old World Hospitality’s Executive Chef – Pan Asian Cuisine. Manish heads the kitchens of Oriental Octopus (New Delhi & Noida) and Tamarai (London). 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.<p justify"=""> U.K’s celebrated wine consultant, Charles Metcalfe has developed a wine list to complement this cuisine. Charles believes that many of the best wine pairings with Indian food are found with white wines, often from New World wine countries. Chef’s tasting menu (12 dishes) 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 is the presiding deity of India Habitat Centre's
Oriental Octopus, and he has been cooking Thai and Chinese food for close to 10 years now.
He is the only Indian national I've met who disproves my pet theory
that Indians can't cook authentic oriental food.
Business Standard, New Delhi
There are master chefs… and master chefs in the Asian pantheon specializing in a
particular cuisine of the region. But I know of no one chef who transverses the region
with such ease, authenticity, panache and skill, as Chef Manish Mehrotra.
