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.

    I have been to many, many Indian restaurants over the years. Most are average at best. Mogul is a cut above in food preparation and presentation. The tandoori grilled meats have a clean fresh taste. The way they should be. Served with perfectly cooked vegetable sides. We tried several lamb kormas each distinctly different, all with sauces deep in color and flavor. The lamb tender and not overcooked. We ordered the bread basket of three breads, which we chose. The paratha was flakey and less dense then most. The onion kulcha and garlic naan distinctly different and hard to stop eating. Curry lovers will love this place.

    Our first experience. Wife and I brought a dear old friend for lunch buffet. We were greeted in a friendly way. We were given a detailed description of the food. Custom made starter was a delicious introduction. Food was well cooked with many offerings. We were able to bring our own wine even though the restaurant has a well-stocked bar.

    Being in the neighborhood, I took one of my out of town colleagues for a business Dinner. My colleague enjoyed a glass of wine. The Moghul Mixed Grill (Tandoor), Bhendi, and the assorted breads were fantastic and predictably the right venue for such occassions.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!!
