The lowdown

Moti Mahal Delux is a high-end Indian chain restaurant that has more than 100 locations in India, Nepal, and London. But this is not your neighborhood Baluchi’s. It specializes in recipes from cosmopolitan Mughal-era India and the restaurant’s signature dish is their butter chicken, which you gobble by the wowing mouthful. Their tandoori chicken straight from of a traditional clay oven is similarly out of this world — or at least beyond the grasp of Curry Hill.
