Another favorite Indian destination for a culinary gourmet experience. You'll find handsdown some of the best food in Clearlake City at this fine restaurant. Yes the decor is in need of a serious makeover, but the tables and chairs are very comfortable. The self serve buffet has not changed much in the years I've been dining there, but I rarely am lucky enough to come in and find the lucious silky okra and potatoes that used to be a standard. BRING IT BACK. Sometimes I've found the variation of string beans and potatoes, but it's not the same. If you are lucky enough to see the okra and potatoes for goodness sake don't skip it! The standard fare of Tiki Masala, Naan, Saag Paneer, lentils, jasmine rice, and Tandori chicken to be sure are featured regularly and never disapoint. I would like to see the delicate battered fish tenders more often, and howabout that wonderful fried cauliflower that I haven't had in years here, but can be found at another mediterranean buffet off the gulf freeway. The servers can be haphazard, with some never making any eye contact and less than gracious about refills, but that actually has improved alot and more frequently than not most are charmingly polite. I never feel rushed, and I do take my time, eating and enjoying a copy of The Press if available, if not the conversations overheard are amusing enough. As always end your meal with a comforting rice pudding.

My Indian friend made me go here, If he promised to come with me to the best Indian restaurant in Clear Lake.
I think he knows the owner, thats why he eats there.

I went to eat the buffet last week and the food is just lacking complete taste and dont seem to take pride in food quality; their tandoori chicken was dry, naan was chewy and curry was waaayyy to salty for my taste!!!

I must admit I saw roaches in the bathroom, but that doesnt not bother me; the problem is the bathrooms are not clean and it is Frankly disgusting. I will not go back here if you paid me money.

I hate to recommend another restaurant on this website but Cuisine of India has the best food in this area.

Cons: food is inconsistent and unsanitary bathrooms

I love this place. The lunch buffet is always good (the saag is to die for here) and usually offers a surprise. The naan is excellent as is the rice pudding. I miss their spice store and wish they did cooking classes.

AMAZING! My wife and I have eaten at several Indian restaurants andhave even learned to cook Indian cuisine at home. This is BY FAR the best Indian food we've had. We stopped in for dinner while vacationing in the Galveston area and will definitely make many return visits. It was clean and beautifully decorated, and the service and attention we got was top rate. The food was amazing - everything we ordered - and the prices were less than we've paid at lesser restaurants. We all loved our dining experience here - even our 4 year old daughter - and we recommend Mogul to everyone.

Pros: prices are good, food is out-of-this-world, great variety and flavor, beautiful atmosphere

This is by far THE best indian restaurant in all of houston. I've been to all the indian restaurants in houston except indika and this is the best! I just recently tried it and the palak paneer is sooooo good....soo creamy and delicious. The best paneer ever. Finally, a place that makes palak paneer very well. Everything else there was also good. The mango lassi was the best I've ever tried anywhere also! Just an overall great place. Nice atmosphere. I drove an hour to go and eat at this place because my boyfriend talks about it all the time and it was well worth the drive!

Pros: GREAT PALAK PANEER, BEST INDIAN RESTAURANT IN HOUSTON

Cons: NONE

The restaurant itself seemed a little dingy but it wasn't very busy, which was nice. My friends and I were able to sit in relative privacy in a quiet atmosphere with some nice Indian muzak. The food took some time to arrive at the table and the service was a little uncertain, by that I mean it was hard to tell whether or not we were understood by the waitresses and the owner. However, there were no extended periods of time without refills and everyone was polite. Best of all, the food was incredible and the patrons at the restaurant were hospitable in demeanor. Highly recommended.

Some Indian students at UTMB recommended this restaurant to me claiming it was authentic and enjoyable. I love spicy food and found this restaurant to possess exquisite quality food and a calming ambiance. I was surprised to find the place in a strip-mall, but once inside the place looked and felt great. I thought the piano was a bit loud for my taste, but the setting was romantic and not as busy as other fine restaurants Ive been to. I had lamb-curry in brown gravy (Gosht Madras) and my date had chicken-curry (Murgh Madras). Both were excellent and very spicy. The creamed spinach (Saag Paneer) made the meal so get the platter instead of just the entree. The wait staff seemed attentive and helpful, and the prices were outstanding for the high quality of food served.

This place has great food. I've been a few times but never remember what I had or what to order, but the waitstaff is knowledgable and can help you order. I've liked everything I've had and they even made some dishes we wanted to try extra spicy for us. Highly recommend!

I've eaten here for many years now. I have always found the service to be friendly and helpful. The buffet is a good value ($7.95), although it would be nice if there were more vegetarian curries (like maybe at least 1-2 more). The naans are not made with eggs, a relief for vegetarians. The saag paneer is pretty good, not heavy with onion and garlic like in most places; but it's not quite as good as the Cuisine of India or Taj Mahal saag paneer. The latter two restaurants make it with a creamier consistency while Mogul still leaves the spinach coarsely chopped. The ambience is nice, albeit somewhat ruined by the beer signs and bar in the corner.

Mogul is clean and the service is fabulous, while the food is consistently great. I strongly recommend it.

Pros: plenty of parking, open everyday, excellent service

I just discovered this website, and was stunned at the high rating Don Paco's got compared to the Mogul. I've eaten at almost every restaurant on the Bay Area list. I've eaten at the Mogul regularly over 10 years and it has excellent Indian food whether you choose the variety provided by the lunch buffet or order from the menu. I agree with the person who said it's the best Indian restaurant in the area, and clearly better than the Taj Mahal (of today) and Cuisine of India. If you like Indian food you mustn't miss this one.
