Mogul Indian Cuisine is like a smaller, more peaceful version of the Mughal Empire from which it takes its name, sprawling luxuriantly over three floors of a 17th-century, Grade II-listed building down Greenwich’s Church Street. Their street level bar and dining room looks out over a picturesque corner of this historic London borough, while the richly-appointed cellar downstairs is lined with alcoves perfect for intimate dining or big gatherings. Finally, the first-floor dining room is reserved for private hire, for the best way to enjoy Mogul’s fine Indian cuisine is to banquet like an emperor.
Mogul Indian Cuisine is truly exceptional when it comes to Indian restaurants in London. Not too many Indian eateries can boast such premises as those occupied by Mogul. First of all it’s a cinch to find, with good transport links into Greenwich (Cutty Sark or Greenwich on the train). Greenwich’s heritage architecture is done proud by Mogul, which has taken up position across three floors of a Grade II-listed building, built in the 17th-century, down Church Street. Indian cuisine in a heritage English building would seem incongruous if the occupation weren’t so sympathetic, and weren’t so conducive to some the most serene Indian dining you’re likely to encounter.
Reserve a table at street level and enjoy some pre-dinner drinks at Mogul Indian Cuisine’s bar, overlooking the street towards the pretty St Alfege Church across the road. Diners looking for a magic moment, or a more rowdy gathering, are well advised to enquire about reserving one of the alcoves in this Church Street Indian restaurant’s cellar. Upstairs is where the real banquets occur, though, where Mogul’s expert chefs can lay on an unforgettable private Indian dining experience. Mogul Indian Cuisine offers some of London’s finest Indian food, and with a picturesque location in historic Greenwich, the total package is hard to beat.
Excellent staff, excellent staff, highly recommended. Dining in the old cellars is highly atmospheric and conspiratorial, definitely evokes Greenwich of sailing ships and a long gone riverside.
Been living in Greenwich for a long time and sort of take this restaurant for granted sometimes. However the food and service is still excellent and the quality of the food seems to be even better than on our last visit.
Great food i would recommend the restaurant to anyone. I will definetly be back!
Whilst it took a while, the food was honestly fantastic and very reasonably priced. We might try and go back tomorrow. Delicious Indian food in a nice spacious restaurant. The staff were friendly. Definitely a restaurant worth trying! Butter chicken was amazing.
We had a table downstairs which was nice and romantic the tables and chairs were like court house/ church type pews, candles on the mantle piece really nice ombience. The food was nice but for me I felt they taste differ to our normal cuisine of indian, We had a king prawn poori nice prawns but the dish never came with any sauce to go over it mint or the usual yellow sauce. My husband had a korma but it had quite a kick not your usual mild dish. The masala was not your creamy dish either and the onion Bhaghi had a strong kick too however this did not spoil our evening the service and staff were very nice, the restraurant was very busy and I recommend you book
This restaurant is always fantastic. As well as great food, the wonderful staff are so friendly. Our meal last night was for a birthday celebration and the restaurant accommodated if really well. (When reviewing the 'noise' category below, I'm not sure what to put as it wasn't mute or quiet but that's a good thing...)
Have eaten here before...am a Punjabi man..so some experience of Indian food!..lol This time had a takeaway...the stand out dish was the Mutton Vindaloo...wonderful balance of heat/chilli and a think sauce with a hint of sweetness, lots of chuncks of meat and potatoes.....haven't had many better vindaloos. The team have been in lewisham for years...and you can see why. Pip Pip!
Fantastic restaurant! I've eaten here a number of times over the last few years, I've never had a disappointing meal to date and the latest trip was no different. Brilliant service and delicious food, what's not to love. Would especially recommend sitting downstairs to enjoy Mogul's full atmosphere.
I have been going to this well-established restaurant for quite a few years now and it never disappoints! First time I booked a table through this site and there were no problems! Friendly staff and great food.
Food was pretty good, but when I asked for a vegetarian main that was listed under 'MAINS' I was told I couldn't order it because it was really a starter. I ordered 2 starters because of this, and 1 would have been absolutely fine! The restaurant was quiet for a Friday night yet we felt hurried out the door after we'd been there an hour. I don't think we'll go back.
