The Mohgul Room is a temple to the grandeur and refinement of Indian cuisine. The setting in the arches-and-romance splendor of the Mena House could hardly be more sublime, and Indian musicians create a seductive aural backdrop. Try luscious, yogurt-marinated tandoori; rich, buttery masala (a classic blend of spices); or tender dal cooked slowly over a flame—all accompanied by delicious, fresh-baked breads. The best of the desserts are kulfi (a slightly grainy ice cream infused with pistachio and cardamom) and gulab jamun (fried milk balls).

We ate dinner at the Moghul Room while staying at the Mena House Hotel. The food was fabulous and the service attentive. The naan was some of the best I've ever eaten and the sauces all had delightful spices. The average dish isn't very "hot" so if you like your Indian food hot, order accordingly. I loved the decor but didn't notice any windows. If there were any, I wish I had been seated near them because although gorgeous decor, I don't like to
feel boxed in. But it was all about fantastic Indian food. A memorable meal.

with musical background, exquisite furniture, delicious food. A really great restaurant in the Mena House which by itself is a wonder to behold. A must for romantics and history buffs.
