First Look at First U.S. Location of Moti Mahal Delux

Clay-pot bliss.

Moti Mahal Delux, a high-end Indian chain restaurant that has over 100 locations in India, Nepal, and London, has opened for the first time in the U.S. on the Upper East Side, by way of the owners of Bhatti Indian Grill and Desi Galli. But this is not your neighborhood Baluchi’s! The restaurant’s signature dish is their butter chicken, and their tandoori chicken straight from of a traditional clay oven is out of this world, or at least Curry Hill.
