Moghul Indian Cuisine Restaurant Review: Moghul Indian Cuisine is worth the trip to busy State Road 436---in an unassuming strip of mostly fast-food places, it’s easy to miss the little spot. The interior is clean, quiet and sparse (in a good way), with courteous servers and a waitstaff that actually seems to care about your dining experience. Cuisine is popular mughlai, or Northern Indian, so the menu won’t surprise you. If you want to try a taste of everything, go for the lunch buffet: chicken korma, saag paneer, yellow dahl, shrimp masala and more. At dinner, if you order a dish “Indian hot,” you’ll get it. A fun way to dine is with an assortment of breads (naan, roti, paratha, kulcha and poori), sides such as mango pickle and raita, and appetizers like the chili pakora (fried jalapeños), lamb chops and potato fritters. Then share a single entrée (plenty for two), maybe the fork-tender chicken tikka masala, which arrives sizzling on a bed of crisp onions. Vegetarians may choose from more than a dozen dishes---try the bharta, grilled eggplant that’s mashed and cooked with fresh tomatoes, onions and spices. Fish curry, lamb vindaloo, the menu covers it all, including the classic desserts of kulfi ice cream and gulab jamun pastry. There’s a modest wine list, beers including Taj Mahal, and the sweet-salty lassi.
