We headed out to Moksh Indian Restaurant in Paarl earlier this week for a mid-week curry and we’re happy to tell you that it is one of the nicest Indian restaurants we have been to. Situated in the centre of Paarl, Moksh Indian Restaurant serves up delicious North Indian dishes in a relaxed and peaceful setting.
There are 2 dining areas to choose from – one is the cosy restaurant inside and the other is the gorgeous courtyard outside – both set up and waiting to take your taste buds on a little trip to North India. It was a beautiful summers day and the courtyard was full of couples, friends & families getting their curry on while catching up and easing into the evening.
Food wise – they have an extensive menu with a wide selection of dishes to choose from. Starters range from R25 – R65 and include things like samoosas, tandoori chicken, onion bhajia, Mains range from R55 – R105 and the options are endless with lamb/chicken/veg/seafood, mild/medium/hot, creamy, tomato-y, garlic-y – basically anything your heart desires, you can have. Naans (R10 – R30), rice (R15 – R25), & desserts (R20 – R35). All the food at Moksh is prepared from scratch so each dish is fresh, delicious and full of flavour.
The chef very kindly took the decision out of our hands and prepared a selection of 3 different dishes for us. All three were really, very tasty with full, fresh flavours. Our selection was made up of: Paneer Tikka Masala (cottage cheese cooked in a Tandoor oven and turned in tikka gravy), Butter Chicken (Chicken fillet strips cooked in a rich tomato and cashew nut sauce and garnished with fresh cream), Lamb Rogan Josh (all time favourite curry cooked in the chefs special sauce), basmati rice, butter naan and garlic naan… yum!
Moksh Indian Restaurant is a solid choice for all your curry cravings. The courtyard is a huge drawing point for Paarls hot summer evenings. The service is great. The food is packed with flavor. The atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable. We had a lovely evening and will be back for more.
You can find Moksh at 2 Pastorie Avenue, Paarl or phone them on 021 872 4548.
