Opened in 1983 at Colombo Court, Moghul relocated at the Novotel, Clarke Quay in 2005. Moghul’s is a casual and joyous restaurant where people can relax and eat with their fingers if they wish. The real Indian food is designed to be shared and is served as it is prepared.
Looking for something to fill my Indian cuisine fix, I made an online reservation at Moghul Mahal recently.
Looking at their menu, I realise that they have quite an extensive menu of both Northern and (some) Southern Indian cuisine, with a focus on the northern Indian items.
I started with the Tomato Shorba ($5). Think of it as a fine cream tomato soup.
I tried the Chicken Makhni ($15). Unlike regular butter chicken, the version here has quite a bit of spice added to it.
I then had the Malai Methi Kumb ($9.90), creamy button mushrooms.
I also tried the Gosht Biryani ($12). The mutton briyani was a little on the wet side but the mutton was really tender and had a nice slight gamy finish. I enjoyed it.
Overall, I found the food to be tasty and at the price point offered it was really good value for money.
I saw moghul mahal on the net and thought I might give it a try. I went there with my family. For starters, we had the Hara Bhara Kebeb, Cutlet and Aloo Chaat. The Hara Bhara kebab had not been cooked properly and was very cold on the inside. The other two were average.
For the main course, we had aloo paratha, dhal tadka, jal frez(mixed vegetables cooked in chili and capciscum) and paneer bhujia. The dal had no taste, the paneer was salty, and the jal frez tasted like sand(yes...really).
The place was extremely noisy, the food was horrible, service was bad, and the waiter was rude. I've had enough of this place for a lifetime, and will never go back. Nor will I recommend it to friends.
I've been here for dinner twice now, and both times found both the food & service to be pretty good. Despite being located in a hotel, the food is very affordable. The quiet, cozy ambiance is definitely a plus. We've tried the regular north Indian food - paneer and daal with rotis, and they've done a consistently good job.
Recommended if you're looking for value-for-money Indian food, away from the hustle-bustle of Clarke Quay.
