Spoilt For Choice

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.

Bad experience

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.

Good food away from the Clarke Quay crowds

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.

Just a standard Indian restaurant: Value for money

After checking several Indian restaurants (including Yantra and Vansh) we decided to go to this one for our company luncheon. 35 of us (5 of them vegetarian) are welcomed to a private room which was just nice for us though the room is meant for 30 people. The ambience was just ok, nothing special. Service was quite prompt and good. Our expectaiton of food was a bit betrayed as not much fantastic. But the price was quite reasonable as we had more than 15 items and costed around $22++ only.

Last year we all went to Johor Bahru to eat at Chakra Restaurant whose dishes, most of us thought, were much tastier.

 

By the way I had a chance to go back to Japan after one year and had a nice Japanese food at Wakayama city, famous for fresh fishes. The taste of suimono (not miso-soup, but generally transparent soup with a small piece of fish inside ) was heavenly which only some good Japanese chef could make. All the dishes were real treats and of course sashimis were very fresh.

Not quite there

Turn the clock back 15 -20 years ago. In those days, the number of Northern Indian restaurants was limited (compared to NOW ie). Tandoor was around, so was Rang Mahal etc etc. but one of the better ones was Moghul Mahal at Colombo Court, frequented by many Indians, notably Sikhs. I remembered the food to be quite good.

Fast Forward to 2006. Moghul Mahal is now in Liang Court (Novotel) 6th Floor where there used to be a Japanese restaurant (Senbazuru)

So, one day, decided to have a company lunch there - a bit of nostalgia as it has been at least 10 years since I last stepped into MM at Colombo Crt!!

AMBIENCE

Anyway, the setting is new and quite nice. Quiet and peaceful

SERVICE

Quite attentive, no complaints

FOOD

I think that my standards have gone up. Or MM's standards have dropped. Don't kinow which.

- The nan was OK (can't really go wrong)

- The chicken tikka was OK but I have had better elsewhere (notably Delhi)

- The Vindaloo was OK but again lacked punch

- The palak paneer was also OK

- Desserts: Gulab Jamun and Kulfi were OK, not bad

Overall, only average. Servings were a bit small compared to places like Delhi and prices slightly higher

VALUE

They can do lunch buffets for $15 a head if you have a large group - I suppose that is good value. A la Carte - I'd rather go to the myriad places now with good Northern Indian. Overall rating considers both ALC and buffet

OVERALL

Not memorable
