Moghul Restaurant Reviews List

Moghul Restaurant

NJ's best Indian restaurant since it opened in 1991 as rated by Zagat, Moghul serves authentic North-Indian & Punjabi food.

With a recent renovation, a new bar/wine menu (although you can still bring your own), and the same great food and service, Moghul is the best Oak Tree Road had to offer. The bi-level space can easily be partitioned off for larger groups.

The weekday lunch buffet is priced at $11.50 and the weekend lunch buffet is priced at $13.50, including some favorites from the adjoining Ming Restaurant.

"The papadum was crisp and plentiful.
We started with Vegetable Samosa and Ragda Pattice. They were both very good. The samosas were not overly crisp as they are in most restaurants. For entrees, we had Moghul Mix Grill, Murgh Tikka Makhani, Saag Paneer and Balti Dal, along with rice and naan. The lentil dish tasted rather bland. Left over two days later, the flavors had melded and were very tasty. The other entrees were very good.
The cost was rather high. Most restaurants provide rice with the entrees. Moghul has rice as an ala carte item. The drinks were rather costly, too, relative to other restaurants.
The service was very attentive.
The cost will probably see me choose other nearby options rather than return to Moghul."

"After a brief hiatus due to logistics, we returned and remembered why we were regulars in the past. You cannot go wrong with the extensive menu, suggest lamb or chicken or even any of the vegetarian dishes if that is your preference....something for everyone and spiced as you like it.....mild, medium, spicy or otherwise. Service is impeccable.....the 'unobtrusive' wait staff cannot be accommodating enough in terms of recommending dishes. By 7PM, the dining room was full on the day after Thanksgiving. We will be back, regularly once again...suggest you do the same."

"Tonight was our first time dining at Moghul. I was expecting a fine dining experience but was disappointed in the ambiance, service and food. I checked on the restaurant website that it was BYO but as we were seated the manager advised that "this" time we could use our wine but not next time so please call them and check before you embarrass yourself (for doing the right thing!)."

"The food was very good, the fried papad (was fresh) and chutney was great start. We ordered Reshmi Kababs and they were so flavorful and moist. If you like spicy food order the stuffed nan it was very good. The dinner was also good but the taste was like eating at any other good Indian restaurant. The service was great. Phillip waited on us and was always smiling and got us our food and beverages on time.
We will visit again if we are in the area and will ask for Phillip.

"Great service, decent food. It was a Wednesday evening and we arrived just as they opened for dinner; so it was quiet. While we didn't have the lunch, but the buffet menu looked interesting. The place filled up as the evening went on. The portion sizes were good and the prices reasonable, but the food wasn't particularly remarkable. Not bad, but not great either."
