Moti Mahal Delux Tandoori Trail

Moti Mahal is a popular name in the north and having had many branches across India it was safe to assume that it would land here in the city of the Nawab’s as well. This franchise at Gachibowli is headed by Mr. Vivek Vardhan who I had met during my initial visit for a foodie event

Ambiance: It is a fine dine restaurant with dimly lit interiors which gives it an old rustic feel, from outside at first glance this might look odd but you gradually get used to the subtle lighting

Food: I have been reviewing restaurant’s on Zomato for about 2 years now and very rarely have I upgraded a score for an establishment from a 3.5 to 4.5 which is a significantly rare occurrence

What transpired and how it achieved it is in the review below:

My first visit to this place was an year back for a foodies event had me try Jaljeera with khari bondi , Chicken Manchow soup,Chicken spring rolls ,Tandoori Chicken,Fish amritsari,Dal Makhani
Butter chicken,Dal Ghost,Laccha paratha, butter naan , plain naan were given as part of the bread basket,Chicken biryani, Paneer lababdar , Dahi ke kebab,Veg navratan pulao,Gajar ka halwa

This time Vivek was attending to all of us personally to ensure that each and every dish that we were served was top notch,

Spicy Tomato Soup – There was nothing special about the soup but it was spicy so I enjoyed it a lot

Strawberry Delight,Fruit Punch,Summer Love,Virgin Mojito – All the drinks were good but Virgin Mojito stole the show for me

Starters: Huge array of starters followed Kastori Kebab,Tandoori Chicken,Tandoori Fish,Dahi ke Kebab,Chilli Chicken,Mutton Gilafi Kebab,Murgh Malai Kebab,Paneer Tikka


Kastori Kebab



Paneer Tikka


Tandoori Fish




Murgh Malai Kebab

For once I can safely say that all the starters were top notch where Mutton Gilafi kebab was excellent. Gilaf means cover in Hindi/Urdu, as the name goes mutton pieces are wrapped & covered with an egg covering making it an excellent item to have as soon as you cut it open


Mutton Gilafi Kebab

North is famous for Tandoori Chicken and we had to order that which turned out to be amazing, pieces were well marinated and juicy. Temperature in a tandoor is not constant and making sure that the chicken pieces are cooked correctly is an art and it was done flawlessly

Dahi Ke kebab is a subtle dish which is supposed to a non-spicy and based on individual taste buds , you can use the green chutney to increase your flavor accordingly. I found it to be a good palate cleanser from all the spicy and flavorful dishes we were hogging


Dahi ke Kebab,


Chilli chicken falls under the Chinese cuisine but the dish served here surprised me, spicy, hot and flavorful


Chilli Chicken


As we were full with the starters itself I ordered lesser quantity of main course to avoid wastage

Butter Chicken,Mutton Rogan Josh along with Dal Makhani – Having had butter chicken in my previous visit I wasn’t expecting a great deal of change in the taste but to my utter shock this turned out to be one of the best dishes of the evening. Made exactly how it is supposed to be in the north where the butter in the dish leaves a slight sweet after taste


Butter Chicken


Mutton rogan josh had soft mutton pieces and an amazing gravy which went well with the assortment of breads we were given i.e Veg Kulcha, Garlic Naan, Green Chilli Paratha, Butter Naan.

Dal Makhani was served in a small bucket like vessel with a generous helping of butter on top, this went amazingly well with the Zeera rice

Dessert had us try their Kulfi Falooda which needed serious improvement and the feedback was received positively
