Indo Chinese Restaurant in the fast developing area of JPNagar 6th phase.
Black table cloth and orange runners is a simple way of enhancing decor and adding some cheer to this otherwise modestly decorated place. Inverted copper bowls with concealed lighting reflect off the ceiling and add Glitter. A projector and screen displays cricket matches and other events.
The menu reflects many years of Sino-Indian co-operation and why not? Our spin on Chinese food has withstood the test of time and emerged a winner. The Manchow soup is a local benchmark and doesn't disappoint. Starters like Crackling spinach with corn, Barbeque chicken and Chicken Satay are prepared well, though the latter should have been accompanied by a peanut sauce. Chinese items are cleverly listed by the main ingredient and variations on the sauce. From the Indian section we tried an unusually sounding Adraki Dal Shorba which turned out to be a pleasant surprise, it was flavourful like a good stock and the piquancy of ginger was just right. Dil Pasand Malai Koftas are served elegantly and taste good too with over tones of cardamom. Bhatti ka Murgh and Nilgiri Korma are the winners here, order the basket of Rotis to try out their many varieties.
Our waiter was smart and alert enough to steer us through the menu's star items. He also obliged us by serving half portions as we wanted to try out a range of dishes without exceeding our budget.
Plus and minus
The menu caters to local preferences, the restaurant is popular and that is what matters. Moksha is a part of Hotel Vaishnavi and that helps with ample parking. The restaurant would do well to augment it's desserts section.
Crackling Spinach and corn, Adraki Dal Shorba and Bhatti ka Murgh.

We thoroughly enjoyed our anniversary and all our guests were happy. We ordered the momos which was amazing and very authentic followed by Five Spice Chicken and Shangai Rolls in Veg.. loved the chicken which was tender and brings out the true flavours. A must try is the Pan Fried Noodles... Service is good... and very well done ambiance... Overall the bill came to 2850 approx for 8 people which I thought is reasonable for the quality and service provided. Keep it up.

On one of my friend’s insistence I decided to accompany her to Moksha, a newly opened restaurant in the city. Usually I am little apprehensive about trying new restaurant but this one turned out to be a lovely culinary experience. The tandoori and Chinese cuisine has been worked on with passion and dedication. I loved the way they prepare Five Spice Chicken, the chicken literary melts on the mouth and it is all because of slow cooking. The momos are also very delicious and available at a reasonable cost. Moksha is a fine example of great culinary work.

I went Moksha for a friend’s anniversary party last month. I liked the place, it was quite relaxing. I had momos, Five Spice Chicken and Veg Shangai Rolls. The food was amazing and delicious. Chicken was full of flavor and scrumptious. It was soft and well-cooked. You can easily have the taste of each and every spice. Pan Fried Noodles were also nice. I also liked the service. Waiters were efficient and very enthusiastic. Looking forward to visit Moksha again.
