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.

This is a great spot. My rating is low because I am gluten and dairy free and there were only 3 dishes from me to choose from. The food was geeat- just wish they had more options.

Always excellent food and service at Moghul. I've been going to Moghul for over 20 years and have always been completely satisfied. They have an excellent buffet for lunch giving you an opportunity to try different dishes. On the weekend they also have Chinese food on the buffet from their restaurant Ming. I highly recommend Moghul.

This is THE place for tandoor food. The melt in your mouth chicken and other meats are simply the best. We keep going back and have not been disappointed in the past 20 years!

Naan, Laccha paratha and Methi malai mutter were great. Gobhi Bansari and Butter chicken was okay. Dahi Bhalla was dry from inside.
Servers were attentive, however, the kitchen team seemed a bit slow. I am sure there must be some reason for that. It took almost an hour for the food to come.
Music was outdated. Some new songs could help lift up the mood. :)
The restaurant has good ambience, overall we had a good family time.

I have been going to Moghul since the 1990s. We had my daughter's college graduation dinner there in 2013. It was always excellent. However the last time we went, which was over a year ago, the food was not up to what it had been. We tried it again on 08/25/2018 and the restaurant was back to its old self. The food is more flavorful than many other Indian restaurants and offers a fair number of choices on their menu you generally do not see elsewhere.

Moghul is always a good option for a nice dinner out. Located in the second largest Indian neighborhood in the Unite states, Moghul is one of the finer Indian Restaurants you will find. The décor is pleasant, the food superb and authentic and the service is very nice. Prices are very fair the he caliber of place this is. Try Moghul I think you will like it.

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.
