a bit bland – This place has good Pakistani food. Some of my Arab friends love to eat here as according to them the meat is Halal ( I think it means kosher).
This is overall an average Pakistani resturaunt which needs to improve its service.
I can understand why the owrners like to call it Indian, considering the current politics but my friends tell me they are several brothers from Pakistan. The food though is similiar to other Indian places in the area.
New location Same Great Indian Food – Finally Moghul Palace has moved to a new location in July. DO NOT GO to the old 10th Ave.
The new location is on
120th Ave NE, street number is 677 next to a Taco Del Mar in the old Larry's market complex.
off NE 8th St. with plenty of parking.
My wife and I had an excellent meal last night . Can't wait to write about how much we enjoyed the dinner we've had.
The owner Mr. Malik greeted every guests personally and took orders attendantly. Our meal started with 3 appertizers : a garlic nan ( with marinated garlic sprinkled which I believe its the best in this area), mussel with special sauce (so fresh), and the delightful Pakora chicken (so tender and crunchy, slight breaded and fried but not greasy at all, I was told that they use only fresh halal meat),
followed with main courses of
Mughali Korma with prawns, a cream base curry with almond( a little salty but still good);
tandori mix which has varieties of meat. from the clay oven.
They were all delicious. Oh, the mango lassi is so refreshing too.
We had so much food and did not have room for desserts.
We will definitely be going back again soon.
I think I will try their weekend brunch buffet next time.

Terrific Lunch Buffet – Really enjoyed our recent lunch. Offered a small but adequate selection. Distinct spices and flavors in each offering. Naan was nicely prepared. Try the rice pudding, which, even without my glasses, I should have been able to distinguish from raita. Price can't be beat.
Yuck – When we lived in Bellevue ten years ago, this was one of our favorite places. We just moved back six months ago and have tried Mogul Palace twice just to make sure. The food is no longer good -- both times were a big disappointment. What happened? The lamb I had on the second visit must have been weeks old; it was dry, tough and tasteless.
RUDE and expensive – very rude server and arguing boss. They dont know to do a good business. the food is micro waved and not fresh. they overcharged and when asked they reduced price and forced to pay tip!!!. any one can go there and experice the same if you dont belive. Yes for sure
Worst Indian restaurant in Seattle and expensive too! – The Roti was burnt, the reshmi kabab was stale and tasted chewy and when we called for someone,the owner took a bite of it from our plate and started defending.even the chicken biryani which the waiter recommended was pathetic and stale. We eat out a lot and we can easily tell the difference between fresh food and microwaved food....It was microwaved ....It was anything but a chicken biryani........We spent $ 50 for two + a three yr old.We did NOT like it leave alone enjoying the food....Not recommended...Awful waste of money...We have never left without tip...My husband is very generous about that but this was the first time we didnt leave a tip as we think they did not desreve it......Chutney's I think is better value for money...Fresh food, friendly waiters and nice ambience.I think Seattle has a good variety of Indian restaurants not only in the downtown area but also in the Eastside....We did not like the owner arguing that a dish is good without wanting to know what is wrong........Highly not recommended...Bad taste!! Dont know if BillG really goes there or must have been there once like us.
Mediocre food. Below Average Service – I have been here a few times and have never been impressed. Apparently this is Bill Gates' favorite Indian restaurant and I am not sure why. I think Gates must try Mayuri in Bellevue or some in the UW area.
Our experience last week (pretty typical)
We tried the chicken tikka masala. It was an artificial orange and extremely spicy. We could not taste the rest of our meal. Restaurant was not busy but still had to wait 40 minutes for the food. They did not serve any papadams or other niblets like most Indian restaurants do.
If you complain about anything, you can expect a rude response. OK, I don't care about the service if the food is exceptional. But, food is mediocre at best. Not one item stands out and makes you comeback for that particular dish.
South Indian Vegetarian (not the usual american indian food) - UDUPI at crossroads
Americanized Indian food - MAYURI - NaaN with Chicken Tikka Masala and Navarathna Korma
Tandoori chicken - Mayuri
After all these years – We've eaten here for 6 years.
Occasionally we get it to go, they would screw up one of the dishes by putting peppers in it when I specifically asked them twice not to.
Last week we ordered food, It was awful, No one could eat it, I had to throw it away. I called the owner ,he said, he'll take care of us.
I went to have him, 'take care' of the charge. He said, "I can't credit your charge back, don't you want more food?" I told him, that we no longer could eat there. He said, "well, I told you I would take care of you and give you food" I told him again, we didn't want the food anymore, just a credit. He took my receipt and tore it up and gave me the cash for the meal back, and was very rude about it.
How Rude! – Wow! I thought this would be a great place for our rehearsal dinner. My fiancee' is Seek and thought it would be a nice treat for her parents. So I called to see if they could accomodate a large crowd. Unfortunately when the host answered i had a short lapse of vocabulary. For a split second I couldn't think of the word I was searching for. I know, I know. "Group" is not that hard a word to remember but all the same... Anyway, the host says "I am very busy!" in an aggravated voice. So I appologized and then he hung up on me.
The manager didn't seem to concerned with this.
ALWAYS A GREAT PLACE FOR LUNCH! – This is one of the nicer places for Indian food that I've gone to in the state of Washington. The food is consistantly great and the service is too. It's a great place to take someone that has never had Indian food and it's always a great place to go to at lunch time.
It's not too big and it's not too small and it's nice and clean. The owner is always happy to see you and they go out of their way to make room for children.
