I really liked the food and had great customer service. Most of my interaction was with our waiter and a gentleman that seemed to be the owner, and they did a great job more »

This place one of the best Murgh Biryani I have tasted in my life. The serving quantity is also sufficient for two adults. Their Murgh Malai Kebab also is pretty good! more »

Summary: Non-veg food is really good, Sweets are mouth watering, Veg needs improvement, Service is awesome.
Details: We had the honor of visiting the Sunday lunch buffet at Mughlai Restaurant to
celebrate our friend's birthday.
This was our second visit to this place for a real north Indian Punjabi style food. The first being a dinner about a year ago.
On both occasions and that too, a year apart, the food quality has been maintained and this is what i consider a very good sign for a really good restaurant.
Even though i really liked the food here, i have rated it as 4 out of 5 simply for the vegetarian's sabzi's taste. I feel they need a bit of improvement.
All other dishes were really good. You talk about Tandoori chicken in snacks or Butter chicken (gravy), you will end end up licking your fingers.
They probably have less number of items to choose in their Buffet, as compared to other restaurants, but their food taste stands apart. It is always better to have less but good options than plenty and below par quality.
The Dahi Vada (as they call Dahi Bhalla in Punjabi), was something that reminded me of Delhi. The way it is made is, you add Deep friend moong dal vada floating in salty curd to a bowl, top it up with sweet Tamarind chutney and Green Coriander sauce.
The real test of bhalla (vada) quality is their softness and these were melting in my mouth fast enough to even blink.
Tandoori chicken had two flavors, bone-less and with bone. Both were made with precision. The third chicken delicacy was Butter Chicken and was equally good in taste providing enough calories and butter to make one get into deep sleep for hours!
Chicken Biryani was fourth item on menu that had chicken in it. This is a sign that they somehow love chicken or they get real slick-deals on chicken stock!
I felt that the rice grain quality needs to be better with Biryani. Also, the texture was not as good as you would find in any other South Indian restaurant.
In the veg section, I tried Balti Dal, Mushroom sabzi and mix veg. Balti dal was good but other two options needs better cooking skills. The mix veg had a bit bit of extra water which spoils the plate. It should ideally be a bit dry.
The bread section had one and only one option i.e. Naan. My wife prefers crispy and hot Naan. This was not the case here. To add to the glory of their dishes, they should improve on serving the hot naan right on table.
Coming to the desserts, we had Gulab Jamun and Jalebi. The crisp Jalebi made our day with Gulab Jamun fulfilling my son's taste buds. Both were good and had the softness and crunchiness that define their texture.
The restaurant service is good with servers re-filing, clearing plates, trying to make your visit memorable and the owner himself visiting each table to address concerns, if any.
My friend (who hosted the birthday) has been a regular customer here since this restaurant opened. He even has his picture in Dallas news paper article, having his team lunch, posted proudly on the, entrance.
No doubt, the restaurant is managed pretty well and has maintained its quality of food and service.
I would recommend this place for a real north Indian meal. They do have a bar and bar stools to have drinks too. Ambiance is good with dim lighting. They have a separate spacious room for party day's too.
