A word from 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.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "My family and I have been coming to Moghul's for a few years now and we always consider it a treat. We have never been disappointed with the food and the BYOB is a great convenience. Our favorites include: Assorted Vegetable Pakora, Seekh –E-Sikander, Murgh Tikka Masala, Murgh Saagwala, Navrattan Curry, Balti Dal, and all the great breads."

  • "Always great. Consistent quality. Can't beat the prices. Always too full when I leave. Solid choice!"

  • "Went there on a recommendation. My wife and I , dinner for two on Valentines Day. The place was rather busy, but the service and the food were impeccable. A beautiful decor and ambiance. Seems like a fine dining establishment except that there were quite a few screaming, crying children and infants-somewhat unexpected considering the rest of the experience. Will definitely return. Top notch service and the food was nothing less than remarkable. Best Rogan Josh I've ever had."

  • "My friends and I frequent this place quite a bit even when it is so out of the way for us. I would say this is the closest I can ever come to delicious Indian food in the US. Everything is very well done and the quality of the food never wanes even during busy times. Definitely recommended."

  • "While I usually go to Moghul for business meetings on weekdays, this time it was a delightful weekend experience. The Fish Curry was particularly delicious along with the usual Tandoori Chicken, Tawa Vegetables, and an assortment of Indian bread."

  • "We feel very welcomed at this restaurant. When we walk in we are warmly greeted by the manager, Ved. Then after we are seated, we are again warmly greeted by our favorite waiter, Siva. We do not come that often, as we live in Staten Island, but Siva always remembers our name. He goes out of the way to make us feel comfortable and he is the main reason we dine at this restaurant. Plus the food is always outstanding!"

  • "My coworker and I like to eat Indian food once a week. My co-workers hertigate is Indian. We are both consultants who are on the road weekly and are always searching for great places to eat. Moghul's has both excellent food and service. Our server, Melwin, was outstanding. We have found this to be the best Indian restaurant in this area."

  • "Either I go to Moghul for Business lunches or for a weekend brunch with my Family & Friends. Last evening, I reserved a Table for an Interview and thought that it may be too noisy to have a business discussion. With the right seating, I conducted an Interview successfully on a Saturday night while enjoying the good food that I have known Moghul for."

  • "Being British, I am very keen on Indian food- it is the most popular cuisine in Britain. I have also spent a lot of time in India. Having spent 10 years in US, and tried lots of different Indian restaurants, I now go nowhere else for Indian food as it is the only one that tastes like the real thing. Delicious!"

  • "Food was good and interesting. Rice is a la carte. Win is limited. Waiter are nice and helpful. We did see a family with two well behaved girls enjoying a meal. Popular late. Many people going in when we left after our 6:30 dinner."

  • "I was looking for something close to some friends in Edison, and this was a good find. Certainly there are great Indian restaurants in the area, but this is a great place for those who may not be very familiar with Indian food. All the dishes were tasty, and service very friendly."

  • "Food at Moghul is exceptional.....aromatic and layers of flavor. Chicken Tikka Masala is the absolute best, and the Lamb Vindaloo was tied for 2nd with the Paneer Moghul.....Paneer Moghul tasted exactly like grilled cheese and tomato soup....only 10 times better! Addition of beer and wine a plus."

  • "Although, as a solo diner, I only had one appetizer and one entree and didn;t sample a wide range of food, what I had was delicious. I did find it strange, however, that rice doesn't come with an entree - it is an extra cost."

  • "The quality and variety of the food was excellent, and was complimented perfectly by the service, which was both prompt and relaxed at the same time, thereby creating a friendly unhurried environment. The entire experience was excellent."

  • "Hands down, best indian food around, in fact we've been all over including other states. By far the best was when we were in florida and ventured to an indian place. As we were leaving we parked next to 2 Indians who asked us how the food was, we immediately stated that well we're from Jersey and we go to this place in Edison... before we could finish they were like MOGHUL??? So in fact, people recognize this restaurant from all over. Plus the staff are like the icing on the cake!!"

  • "The food and service were as usual - outstanding. We were not happy with the seating - us pushed into a tight booth...but, given the fact that it was a weekend, I guess we couldn't ask for more. We are extremely thankful for our excellent service manager who went out of the way (twice now) - to make our dining experience very memorable."

  • "My boyfriend and I dined at Moghul's and were completely overtaken by the delicious food and awesome waiter service with Philip Gonsanes. It was my boyfriend's birthday and the waiter ensured the perfect celebration and gave wonderful suggestions on food selection. I will come back again and again and tell others to do the same, especially if I can have the same waiter again (smiles)."
