With consistently good reviews for the quality of its food, The Great Moghul is a well respected Indian Restaurant and claims to be the best in Eastleigh. Established in 1990, this traditionally decorated and friendly Indian restaurant is also the longest established in the town.
The fully licensed and air-conditioned Tandoori Restaurant specialises in traditional and authentic Indian and Bangladeshi cuisine. Up to 70 diners can be accommodated and the attentive staff will cater for parties and special occasion celebrations, making sure the customer’s individual requirements are met with the utmost care and efficiency.
Their head chef, who was originally trained in India and has over 20 years experience as a chef, oversees a menu that provides a great selection of vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes – with the house speciality being their Tandoori dishes. The Great Moghul believes that Tandoori (clay oven) is the best method of Indian cooking, with the dishes firstly marinated in a traditional barbecue sauce, then cooked and served with a unique presentation of rice and vegetable curry.
