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 $11.95 and the weekend lunch buffet is priced at $15.95, including some favorites from the adjoining Ming Restaurant.

Food is always top notch at Moghul, so no issues there.

However, the service is atrocious and some are quite rude...Especially those that are at the front host stand area when you walk in and ask for a table. Im also not too pleased with how the hosts speak to and treat the servers which needs to be improved big time.

It was for a special occasion and I and my family had a great time. They were courteous enough to provide options of Chinese too from the restaurant next door!! Simply wow!!

Great food, nice ambiance and extremely good service. We had a prior reservation booked via Opentable and got to our seat in less than 10 seconds. No discussions required. Cool!!

Please be sure to order traditional Indian deserts like Kulfi. Trust me, you'll love it.

It's been a minute since I have eaten the Sunday Brunch at Moghul. There was a time when this was the place to be for the weekend buffet. We went in expecting the pinnacle of what Indian food was supposed to be and came out so under whelmed. I was so disappointed with the quality of their food. The Chinese items were OK but their main pillar, their bread and butter, the dish that they are know for - Dahl Makhani- was a HUGE disappointment. I didn't come out of the brunch feeling wowed at all. It was another typical place that served typical Indian food. The service, however, is still the same impeccable level of attention paid to the customer.

This is my favorite Indian Restaurant. I have been going to this restaurant for over a decade. Mr. Poudyal (Manager) and his staff are very friendly and provide excellent service. The food is delicious and they can customize the flavor to your preference. I would highly recommend this restaurant for lunch or dinner.

We have been coming here for 15+ years - that should say something. We drive 45 minutes each way for a total driving time of 1.5 hours !

Food was excellent as usual

However, the salted lassi was very sour and we informed the waiter - but the restaurant did not offer to replace it or refund - that's very unfortunate!
