-By Marryam H Reshii
Once the place for Delhi wallahs to dine out, the original Darya ganj Moti Mahal is quite a frozen-in-time experience, especially for non-resident Delhiites and foreign tourists who flock here. They gawp in astonishment at the rather basic interiors that have been kept (purely unintentionally, let it be said) at the level of post-Partition days. But even though it has distinctly frayed at the edges, the restaurant offers the cuisine it truly pioneered in the city - Dal Makhni, Butter Chicken, Reshmi Kabab, Murgh Musallam. After all these years, the Tandoori Chicken is still succulent and flavourful. Among the new ones introduced Chicken Burrah, Garlic Reshmi Tikka, Paneer Tikka Amritsari are worth a try. The other Moti Mahal outlets in the city are owned by a motley bunch of partners and family members of the flag ship, so that though the menus remain largely the same, standards vary. The others have "Delux", "Deluxe" and "Tandoori Trail" attached to the name, indicating ownership.

There are so many restaurants in Delhi, but the special one is Moti Mahal. Try tandoori chicken and Butter Chicken. Paneer Tikka is superb. Non-Veg lovers should visit this place. They can?t resist themselves coming again and again. I would highly recomme
