Restaurant Review: Moti Mahal Delux, Nehru Place, Delhi – 4/5 Stars

Moti Mahal was first set up in Peshawar in 1920 by K.L. Gujral who moved to Delhi following the partition of India in 1947 and opened a restaurant in Daryaganj. Gujral is said to be the invented of the famous tandoori chicken and butter chicken.

I just love the fat-soaked food of our ancestors and when I was at the Epicuria Mall Food Court at Nehru Place yesterday for a shoot with Rocky and Mayur (Yay!- who doesn’t love them), I got an opportunity to enjoy just that. What is better than being surrounded by food and the two greatest foodies of all time.

The food court has bright green chairs and a comfortable atmosphere. The room is brightly lit and has a lot of restaurants. It feels like quite an elaborate arrangement.

Moti Mahal Delux is all about its interesting recipes. The staff are pleasing and smiley. Even though there’s serious competition in the food court, this restaurant certainly has an untarnished reputation to back it. If I were to pretend I live in a post-independent India, I have a bunch of places in which to do so; and Moti Mahal is once such timeless place that entices me every time I am around it.
