New Delhi, August 2018: Indian Accent, New Delhi is part of the World’s Greatest Places announced by TIME in its first annual list that highlights 100 destinations that are breaking new ground, leading industry trends and offering visitors an extraordinary experience.
The list reads, “New Delhi standard bearer Indian Accent has made Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list for six years running, thanks to chef Manish Mehrotra’s inventive Indian cuisine—think pulled-pork phulka tacos, blue-cheese naan and galautis stuffed with foie gras. Now the brand is going global: its New York City outpost debuted to rave reviews in 2016, and last year a third Indian Accent opened in London. —Joseph Hincks”
Said Restaurateur, Rohit Khattar, Chairman, Old World Hospitality, “Very humbled that Indian Accent is the only restaurant from India to feature on this prestigious list. We are thrilled and I would like to thank our superb team and our regular diners ever so much for their support.”
Manish Mehrotra, Corporate Chef, Indian Accent Restaurants said, “At Indian Accent, all of us are thrilled with this news. It came in as a pleasant surprise, as we didn’t know who came and ate at the restaurant, or when we were reviewed for this list. This is a validation of our belief that at Indian Accent every guest is a VVIP – and its only when you work with this ethic for each and every meal can you achieve such recognition.”

TIME evaluated each one based on several key factors, including quality, originality, innovation, sustainability and influence.
