Indian Accent is ranked the 19th best restaurant in Asia, on the Asia’s 50 Best list, and has received numerous awards and distinctions for its innovative homage to Indian cuisine. Chef Manish Mehrotra, Indian Accent’s Culinary Director, has been recognised as the No. 1 Chef in India by various organisations and publications, including Culinary Culture and American Express. The restaurant has also been praised for its contribution to Indian culture and is listed in TIME Magazine’s ‘World’s 100 Greatest Places’.

During the Mandala Club residency, Chef Manish Mehrotra, hailed as the most exciting modern Indian chef in the world, will bring his inventive and creative approach to Indian cuisine for the exclusive two-week residency from Tuesday to Sunday for both lunch and dinner. The gastronomic experience will feature a choice of 4-,7- or 9-course menus starting at S$188++ for lunch, and S$238++ for dinner.
