I had some fabulous meals in India, but this wasn't one of them. I went there after seeing it on TV and hearing that it's where tandoori chicken began. The restaurant has been there for decades and is in Old Delhi near some of the main sites to see. The outdoor garden area is somewhat charming, but the interior is... More

They categorized it to Delux restaurant. Enter the restaurant and no one even bothers to greet you - forget even being offered water to drink. After insisting for the menu card, I felt the menu was too much with very steep pricing. Ambience is that of a very dull dark bar where you can feel uncomfortable for getting along your... More

i have been to moti mahal janakpuri. The food is average and the prices are high.Better avoid as this is unusually high. Their butter chicken and tandoori chicken are best. service is a bit slow.

This is nice place for food lovers both veg and non-veg. Food quality is good and service is quick. Staff is courteous and well trained. ambiance of hotel is beautiful and seating is comfortable. Prices are on higher side but you get quality with that.

They are said to be one of the oldest serving mughal restaurants in New delhi. We tried their non veg platter, The chicken items were too good. They were marinated & well baked. the ghost was so so and fish was smelly. Overall one can try out chicken items here.

There is no doubt that quality is very good and food is tasty. Ambiance is very good and you will find decent crowd.The menu has quite large number of options for both Veg and Non Veg. The staff was polite and service was excellent. The only point is it is expensive so you can go once in few months.
