    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!

    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.

    Phenomenal food: paneer tikka, dahi palak, murgh tandoori, burrah kebab (best thing on the menu), murgh and dal makhani - and, of course, gulab jamun

    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 Read more

    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

    Excellent food!! The Butter Chicken and Daal Makhani were very authentic & awesome. Also try out the Roomali Khasta, a very eclectic appetizer!

    Excellent Indian food. Butter chicken is absolutely delicious - a must for chicken-lovers!

    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.

    Naunihal S. · January 9, 2013

    The Butter Chicken and Anardani Tikka are a must-try!!

    There isn’t 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 you’ll be rewarded.

    BlackboardEats · September 13, 2012

    The real butter chicken, kaali daal and some funky delicious stuff like gol grappa shots, roomali khasta dips & scallops w/ mango chutney. YUM!

    Shagun M. · July 21, 2012
  • Harsh S.

    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

    Wow. Very easily some of the best Indian food I've ever had. Get the butter chicken, chana masala, lemon rice, and plenty of samosas.

    Unreasonably prices mediocre food.

    Nice atmosphere. Great murgh korma chicken, pretty good wine selection.

    No a la carte menu for lunch. There are only two options: veg or non-veg sit down buffet.

    Get the daal!

    No, this is not the real deal. Desis will know Moti Mahal for succulent, flavorful and excellent food. This is none of that. Does not live up to the namesake in India. Average fare.
