Moti Mahal is a famous name for the people who Love Tandoori food all over India. In olden days, elders said “Going to Delhi and not visiting Moti Mahal is like going to Agra and not visiting Taj Mahal” . Although, it might look like an exaggeration, it is quite famous (like our own landmarks Bawarchi,Paradise).
Speaking about the hyderabad branch, its been quite sometime now that its in the market and I had an interest in the beginning to visit this place, however was postponed given various reasons. An impromptu foodies meetup landed us here.
We were welcomed with Spicy Tomato Soup which was tangy and and tasted good. However, it was not thick as a regular tomato soup would be.
Mocktails Strawberry Delight,Fruit Punch,Summer Love tasted good. Virgin Mojito could have been better.
We had variety of starters and all the starters we had were awesome.
Kastori Kebab: Neatly packed in an omlette wrap, there comes Kastori Kebab. Chicken was tender and tasted delicious.
Dahi Ke Kebab in veg is something which was beyond my expectations in taste and was yummilicious.
Murgh Malai Kebab was nothing less and tasted equally delicious and stole the show.
Other startes Tandoori Chicken,Chilli Chicken,Mutton Kebab and Paneer Tikka were at par with other dishes.
My Pick in starters : Kastori Kebab,Murgh Malai Kebab and Dahi ke Kebab
Given we had many starters, we settled for 3 main course dishes. So we picked the best ones or you could say that What Moti Mahal is specialized in.
Dal Makhni and Butter Chicken: The best I had till date. They have ensured their recommonded dishes are truly very authentic in preparation and taste. I’m still drooling for these 2 items and would definitely go back again for this.
Mutton Rogan Josh tasted equally good and the gravy in it was yummilicious.
Breads accompanied with above and the ones I tasted were Veg Kulcha,Garlic Naan and Butter Naan and three of them were soft and smooth. Given our eloberate food photo session, we thought they would have got cold and as usual Naans would get rubbery. However, it was still soft (y) . Awesome job done here.
We then ended our dinner with sweet tooth Lassi and Kulfi Falooda. Both of them would need improvement and the same was informed to management, which they said would be taken care of.
- Awesome starters.
- Butter chicken and Dal Makhni
- Desserts, atleast the authentic ones like Lassi- could get better
Yes, even I have seen many negative reviews and hesitated the same way you are now to visit this place. Every one has their own perception and sometimes it might have got wrong. However, I would definitely recommend this place, atleast to try out their authentic Dal Makhni and Butter chicken, not to forget their Yummy Starters. What are you waiting for ? Go run!
