    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

    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

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

    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

    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

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

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Strongly suggest getting one each of the vegetarian and meat lunch specials if you go with someone else - vegetarian appetizers are especially delicious!

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

    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.

    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.

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

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

    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.

    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.

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

    Amazing Paneer dishes. Also the Daal Makhni is out of this world! The butter naan was very well made!
  • Zeba S.
    Best indian food in Nyc! Their kadhai chicken , paneer butter masala and daal makhani are on my favourite list.

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

    Veg dishes taste the same everywhere but not here. Go for Paneer Lababdar - amazingly unique and great taste!
  • Kéké W.
    Great food, excellent waiter! He offered us a little desser, so nice. I definitively recommend this place

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

    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).

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

    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.

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

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

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

    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.

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

    The curry with spinach in it was very good but the servers were kinda snarky.. in a bad way.

    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.

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

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

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