The first Mughal Mahal restaurant opened in Sharq in 1985 (there are now 8 restaurants throughout Kuwait), and the name is now synonymous with quality Indian cuisine. The restaurant in Salmiya in the Al Tahreer complex offers a new twist to their menu as they have added a continental section called ‘Multi Cuisine’. There are many favorites at Mughal Mahal including, soups (over 16 to choose from). They are also renowned for their curries – try Murg Lajawab which is a specialty of Peshawar (marinated pieces of chicken cooked with juliennes of green pepper, tomatoes, dried mango powder and saltpetre, garnished with ginger), or the Adrak Ke Panje (ginger flavored lamb chops, marinated in yogurt and selected spices and served on a sizzling plate). Vegetarian favorites include Navratan Korma (a princely flavor of seasonal vegetables simmered in a rich cashew sauce) and Kashmiri Pulao (basmati rice cooked with pineapple and nuts). Be warned the portions are very generous – so come hungry. Lunch is served from 12 p.m. to 3.30 p.m. on weekdays and until 4 p.m. on weekends; dinner is served from 6 p.m. to 11.30 p.m. on weekdays and until midnight on the weekends. Private rooms are available in some restaurants – but booking is advised, as these are very popular. Mughal Mahal delivers, using a local taxi.
