Moon Indian Cuisine is one of the best Indian restaurants in Atlanta. I've visited this restaurant perhaps a dozen times with friends and am delighted by the quality of the food each time I return.

My favorite entrees include Chicken Madras and Lamb Vindaloo--both are excellent--but honestly I have never had a bad dish here. Just tried the Tandoori Mixed Grill and the Chicken Masala last night and have nothing but good things to say about them, as well. Also noteworthy are the Vegetable Samosas, which have an excellent taste and flavor, and are always cooked correctly (i.e. not greasy).

The new owner, Surya (who has owned the restaurant for 10 months or so), is very personable and is always at the restaurant. He and the waiters work hard and seem to take great pride in making this "hole-in-the-wall" a comfortable and enjoyable place to eat.

They do dine-in, carry-out, and delivery (the latter over a limited area), and have beer and wine available.

I'll be back soon!

While this was originally called "Royal of India", the management was supposedly changed in early 2012.
I have been there several times since then and the quality of food, service and humble attitude has been consistent.
Along with the service and prices, a restaurant MUST maintain consistent FOOD - Taste/Quality/Authenticity - "Moon India Cuisine" outshines itself every single time.
If you are in the mood for some authentic North Indian Food, I would highly recommend this place.
The place may look small, but the food is excellent - have taken several friends to this place since then and all have had the same high praise.

Keep up the good work..

Excellent Indian food and best customer service. The only issue is the place looks old and worn down, but if you are ready to ignore that, you will come out deeply satisfied.

Stumbled upon this place by accident today. Our party of three had vegetarian curry and lamb vindaloo. Both were excellent and spicy. The complimentary soup and samosas were were a nice surprise. You can tell everything was fresh and home made. The naan bread was crispy and some of the best I have ever has.

The food is extremely bland. There was hardly any difference between the Pilau Rice and the Fried Rice, other than one was yellow, the other one white. Naan comes from a cookie sheet out of a regular oven, tasted like bad pizza dough.
Despite all the positive reviews on urbanspoon and yelp I kinda expected it though after going through the menu with about 100 items.
