Foursquare Tips

  • The lamb kebabs are exceptional, as is the thickly seasoned tandoori chicken. Veggies can head to a steaming lunch buffet with vegetarian options as well!
  • Phenomenal food: paneer tikka, dahi palak, murgh tandoori, burrah kebab (best thing on the menu), murgh and dal makhani - and, of course, gulab jamun
  • The burrah kebab are truly exceptional, and standards like butter chicken are well-executed.
  • An international chain specializing in Mughlai, an exceptionally rich and varied branch of Indian cooking. Very vegetarian-friendly.
  • You're in for a treat with the lunch special. $14 to eat like a king. 2 apps, 1 entree, 1 dessert. Refills. Can't go wrong.
  • It can easily beat the "T" and "J" places. Real chicken tandoori without coloring. Their phirni (crushed rice pudding) is a must try. We also had the chicken with yogurt/cashewnut gravy- crazy good
  • New. Family Recipes. On the menu try the Kaali Daal(prepared slowly on low heat and blended with butter or cream) and what about the butter chicken and their tandoori chicken from clay oven
  • The best Indian food in US I have eaten! Dal Makhani compares to the best of Old Delhi. Paneer Lababdar is delicious and so is Khasta Roll. Do talk with Chef Kishore. He is as warm a host as they come
  • The updated Mughlai dishes here still bring plenty of heat to the table! Stockpile napkins and dig in to the tandoori chicken and lamb kebabs. The lunch buffet is also a neighborhood deal at $11.95
  • The place is among the best places for Indian Food around, has good interior design, excellant service and delicious food!
  • Really great flavorful indian food. Not the biggest portions so get a couple sppetizers.
  • Best indian food in Nyc! Their kadhai chicken , paneer butter masala and daal makhani are on my favourite list.
  • Excellent Indian food. Would recommend the lamb curry, butter chicken and paneer kadhai. Dal makhni is delicious!
  • Great deal of veggie options, just enough spices and reasonable prices. We shared the mushrooms kebab and I got the Palak Paneer : very good although portions end up to be bit too much for me
  • staff was super nice to us and our 14-month old son. brought him a mango lassi and a bunch of baby-friendly things to eat; we were pleasantly surprised when they weren't on our bill.
  • Great food, excellent waiter! He offered us a little desser, so nice. I definitively recommend this place
  • Try the ras malai. I rarely have it in the USA, but it's really good here.
  • The Butter Chicken and Anardani Tikka are a must-try!!
  • There isnt enough Indian-brewed beer to help you pronounce the murgh makhani (fork-tender chicken in a silky tomato sauce) at Moti Mahal Delux, but try your best and youll be rewarded.
  • So so delicious and filling! Come with an empty stomach and you won't be disappointed. Will be back again soon :)
