As a culinary palindrome, naan tastes the same backward as it does forward, like the bananab or a Toyota. Take a bite in every direction with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of traditional Indian cuisine at Moti Mahal Indian Cuisine in Royal Oak.
Moti Mahal's menu is stocked to the margins with traditional Indian fare, and the rich, red hues of its clean and simple dining room pair well with spiced servings for the mildest to the most daring of palates. Give tummies a taste of satiety with veggie or meat samosas ($2.95), or dive mouth-first into a hot bowl of chicken tikka masala ($13.95), sliced into chunks and marinated in a savory selection of spices and yogurt and roasted in a tandoor oven. Braver bellies can opt for the vegetarian palak paneer ($9.95) or the super-spicy lamb vindaloo ($12.95), igniting internal combustion chambers fueled exclusively by raging-hot peppers. Douse mouth-fires with extinguishers such as bubbly garlic naan ($2.95) and sweet mango chutney ($1.95), or sip on Moti Mahal's traditional chai tea ($1.95).
For three generations, the Ullah family has been satisfying Midwestern palates with traditional Indian cuisine at Moti Mahal. Relying on 39 years of culinary experience, Chef Abdul masters a menu of authentic Indian and Pakistani cuisine slathered in curries and sauces that range from mild to extra spicy. Black leather chairs, rich burgundy hues with gold accents, and a lack of singing wall decorations lend the chic dining room an air of relaxed elegance. Moti Mahal now has their own cell app available for both i-phones and androids which provides customers access to a number of features such as making reservations, up-to-date reviews, and check-in based rewards.
