    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 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

  • Amelie L.

    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

    Amelie Lelarge · March 3, 2015
  • Laura D.

    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

    Laura De Valencia · January 17, 2013
  • Varun S.

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

    Varun Shetty · December 7, 2012

    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
  • Irma Z.

    Lunch was good and large portions but it was odd that we could not take the leftovers with us. Either they were going to throw away a lot of food or were going to re-serve to someone else.

    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.

  • Michele B.

    They give you so much food for lunch and you cant take any home. Come hungry (like "I could eat a horse" hungry) - especially if you're 2 people since they give food for 5.

    Michele Bradley · July 4, 2014
  • Krithika R.

    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.

    Krithika Rosenthal · December 2, 2012
  • Village Voice

    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!

    Village Voice · January 18, 2013
  • Shailesh M.

    If you're looking for North Indian food and a fancy setting (especially if you're not Indian), this is the place. Best Indian restaurant in town hands down.

    Shailesh Mishra · September 25, 2014
  • Ashish S.

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

    Ashish Sethi · July 23, 2012
  • Shagun M.

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

    Shagun Mehandru · July 21, 2012
  • William N.

    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.

    William Nelligan · April 19, 2014
  • Cameron M.

    Golgoppa shots are a unique experience. They can't be split - you have 4 whole mouth bites, so make sure you are ready for that.

    Cameron Maddux · June 15, 2015
  • Vasanth R.

    Lunch is a pretty good. They have two options to choose from, veg and non veg. It's a three course meal with a lot of food.

  • Serious Eats

    An international chain specializing in Mughlai, an exceptionally rich and varied branch of Indian cooking. Very vegetarian-friendly.

    Serious Eats · July 31, 2013
  • Russell H.

    Really good Roomali Khasta and Daal Makhani. Khadhi Murgh could've been better. Solid wine pours.

    Russell Hirschorn · November 16, 2014
  • Shane A.

    Appetizer arrived cold and entrée tasted of gas (no tandoor). Do yourself a favor and dine at a cheaper Indian restaurant for similar quality.

    Shane Antony · September 25, 2015
  • David D.

    Butter chicken. Daal Makhani. This place is really butter central. Bonus: lamb in spinach is shockingly awesome. A must go.

    David Dunhill · September 30, 2015
  • Rewan P.

    Excellent Indian food. Would recommend the lamb curry, butter chicken and paneer kadhai. Dal makhni is delicious!

    Rewan Parti · March 17
  • Shiori

    So so delicious and filling! Come with an empty stomach and you won't be disappointed. Will be back again soon :)

    Shiori · September 7, 2012
  • Kunjan P.

    Veg dishes taste the same everywhere but not here. Go for Paneer Lababdar - amazingly unique and great taste!

    Kunjan Punatar · October 23, 2015
  • Chris S.

    On Sundays a very reasonable and tasty brunch "seated buffet" awaits anyone who can handle the surliness here.

    Chris Steele · November 10, 2014
  • Sabarish R.

    Amazing Paneer dishes. Also the Daal Makhni is out of this world! The butter naan was very well made!

    Sabarish Raghupathy · September 24, 2015
  • Kaushal A.

    The place is among the best places for Indian Food around, has good interior design, excellant service and delicious food!

    Kaushal Agrawal · November 26, 2012
  • Sandesh T.

    Basically nothing. The place looks nice, sure. But the food, portion sizes, everything was total 💩 Never going back to this garbage pile.

    Diwali is around the corner! Come by between Nov 4- Nov 18 and check out our special Diwali menu during dinner (prix-fix with vegetarian and non-vegetarian options).

    Great food, excellent waiter! He offered us a little desser, so nice. I definitively recommend this place

  • Morgan P.

    One of the better Indian restaurants in Manhattan, though the location is a bit out of the way.

    Morgan Polotan · March 21, 2015
  • Cameron W.

    The Tandoori chicken here is worth the trip. I haven't come across a better rendition anywhere.

    Cameron Wylie · 1 week ago
  • Cameron M.

    The Butter Chicken is not only probably the best in NYC, it is possibly the best on the planet.

    Cameron Maddux · June 15, 2015
  • Varun S.

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

    Varun Shetty · December 28, 2012
  • Anil D.

    The burrah kebab are truly exceptional, and standards like butter chicken are well-executed.

    Anil Dash · January 22, 2013
  • Andrew L.

    Really great flavorful indian food. Not the biggest portions so get a couple sppetizers.

    Andrew Lugavere · October 13, 2012
  • Lily O.

    Vegetarian paradise. Amazing indian and great ambiance at a reasonable price. Yum!!

    Lily O'Dare · August 23, 2014
  • Naunihal S.

    Try the ras malai. I rarely have it in the USA, but it's really good here.

    Naunihal Singh · January 9, 2013
  • Chris G.

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

    Chris Gabriel · February 19, 2013
  • Christine L.

    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.

    Christine Liang · July 8, 2013
  • Heather P.

    Flavorful, authentic Indian with authentic dishes. Complex flavored vs. the norm where everything tastes the same

    Heather Park · December 16, 2014
  • Rachel

    Food was solid, but not as spicy as I would have liked (even when ordered "hot")

    Rachel · August 7, 2014
  • Jeff S.

    Lunch special was excellent. Weird that they don't let you take leftovers home.

    Jeff S · July 1, 2015
  • Ankush B.

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

    Ankush Bhatia · November 23, 2012

    Butter chicken, spicy lentils, garlic naan. Bing, bang, boom.
