Dine Like Royalty At Majlis-e-Mughal...

Majlis-e-Mughal Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

Majlis is an indicative term for a council or special gathering. At Majlis-e-Mughal, they celebrate food served in a royal manner. Majlis-e-Mughal is located in Vasant Kunj, right opposite Fortis Hospital and is essentially a fine-dine restaurant that specializes in Mughlai Cuisine.

The outlet has been designed in line with the theme with mirrors, modern art, and upholstery done in pastel shades. It would be an understatement to say that Majlis-e-Mughal is a hidden gem because it is one of the rare places in Delhi that caters to Mughlai nowadays, and aces it with elegance.

Majlis-e-Mughal is the brainchild of Mr. Sohail Khatri who had an urge to revive the dying legacy of an exquisite cuisine in the capital city. It is like bringing the flavors of authentic Lucknowi Mughlai preparations to the table here in the heart of Delhi, thanks to Executive Chef Raj Aryan who has the backing of more than a decade of presenting authentic Mughlai preparations to his credit.

Majlis-e-Mughal is a name that wins it on the basis of its food solely. None of the factors like decor, vibe, and service are needed to even lend it a helping hand to procure cent per cent. The fact that the ingredients for dishes are procured from Lucknow testify the fact that there is zero compromise when it comes to what is being served on the plate.

Each preparation is a winner in itself, be it on the basis of its aesthetics or taste, and there is not one flaw that I was able to point out in any them. I was all praises for the entire spread presented at a recent visit to Majlis-e-Mughal.

Here's what all was relished when I dined like royalty at Majlis-e-Mughal...

Appetizers, along with which crispy Poppadoms were served.

Paneer Majlis Kebab was stuffed with soft cottage cheese on the inside.

Lucknowi Dahi Ke Kebab had the characteristic crispy outlook yet the perfect flavor burst on the palate.

Tandoori Khumb had an unconventional element in its presentation in the form of an onion bulb on the side.

Lucknowi Veg Seekh was prepared well but had green chili chunks on the inside.

Murgh Majlis Kebab was a sibling of Paneer Majlis and had Chicken Keema stuffed into it.

Nizami Kebab is the most unusual (rare) kebab preparation I have come across in Delhi. The succulent kebab had a Chapati wrapped around it, garnished with onion rings.

Kalmi Kebab was such that I can say that it's one of the best I've had in recent times.

Galouti Kebab was the epitome of fragile so to say. It is one of the most melt-in-mouth I've ever had, and was presented in the classic form, atop an Ulte Tawe Ki Roti, garnished with onion rings.

Kakori Kebab had a rose on its side to enhance aesthetics.

All in all, Majlis-e-Mughal makes a fantastic attempt to revive the presence of Mughlai cuisine on the F&B scenario in Delhi and does an excellent job. It would be my recommendation for anyone looking to savor authentic Mughlai delicacies in a fine-dine setting.
