PLEASE NOTE: Reservations are for indoor dining only. For outdoor dining, please call and make a reservation with the restaurant directly.

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 food was absolutely delicious. The drinks were great and the service was fast. I’m looking forward to coming back. They follow the covid-19 rules with masks and everyone has their temperature checked at the door.

Mogul has been my go-to Indian restaurant in Edison for at least 20 years. My favorite dish is the Saag Gosht which is basically puréed spinach with lamb. For an appetizer, I had the tandoori chicken which was delicious with the right amount of spice. Solid choice for Indian cuisine and the service is extremely efficient.

We have been celebrating birthdays and other events for the past 10+ years. Today, it felt different. Not the same, neither the ambiance, nor the food, nor the service. It was all off. Blame it on COVID, or things have just become different. I may have to look someplace for our next event...i think it may be time.

Food quality was inconsistent. Appetizers and garlic naan was excellent but the main course items such as Lamb Rohan Josh and the Butter Chicken was mediocre at best. I had high hope for this place and hope that this feedback will encourage them to pay attention to the consistency and taste. This is an expensive place therefore it is incumbent upon them to deliver higher quality and tasty food.

Our lunch was at the Buffet ...which is available each day..and was a very good value at $12.95/person.
Service at the table was very attentive...servers removed plates timely and filled water glasses frequently.
There were a variety of dishes to choose from.. all tasty and flavorful... most had the heat toned down for the American palate.
We all enjoyed our lunch...and will return.

Excellent food and service. We had Tandoori Salmon (fish tikka), goat biryani, kashmir pulao and tutti frutti ice cream. All were excellent. Now I dont want salmon anywhere but here at Moghul. It's is the best I've ever had. Service is always exceptional. The silverware and dishes are spotless which I don't always find at other restaurants. Always great at Moghul.

Chicken kabab is juicy and melted in mouth. Brussel Sprouts appetizer is amazingly tasty. Staff is very courteous and attentive. Except Samosas, which were over cooked and dry all others are very good. Have tried Chicken Saagwala, Bindi Masala, Kadai Chicken & Lamb Rogan Josh.

Another outstanding meal at this authentic Indian Restaurant. We went for the buffet this time and with family that was born and raised in India, Mogul never disappoints. The food was perfectly flavored and spiced at the right price. We live coming here.

Keep the Tandoori chicken coming. Empty chafing dishes speak to how good it is, but not to keeping customers happy
