Are you looking for authentic Indian cuisine? Look no further than Moksh Authentic Indian Cuisine Restaurant in Pastorie Avenue, Paarl.
With professional Indian chefs preparing a wide range of Indian food, Moksh offers something for everyone, from seafood to meat dishes and even vegetarian meals.
A visit to the restaurant offers guests a unique experience, with exotic traditional Indian dishes prepared with a combination of the world’s best spices.
Moksh owner Sunil Krishnan and its chefs are originally from Mumbai, India.
The restaurant promises guests an authentic taste of north Indian cuisine, guaranteed to make them come back for more.
Try the chicken or lamb korma, both served with basmati rice, naan bread or poppadoms. Old favourites such as samoosas, garnaalkerrie or lamb biryani are also on the menu. Guests have a choice of how spicy they want their food to be.
The kitchen also boasts an authentic tandoor oven, probably the only one of its kind in Paarl and surrounds. A tandoor oven is a clay pit in which a fire is made and it is heated to a very high temperature, about 400°C.
Dishes such as tandori chicken (spiced chicken cubes on long scewers) are cooked here. The high heat of the oven causes the chicken to cook very quickly to perfection, remaining succulent, tender and juicy on the inside.
Naan breads (flat breads) are also baked in this oven, with rounds of flat dough thrown onto the inside wall of the oven and needing only to bake for a minute until done.
Moksh also offers the option of a buffet, vegetarian or halaal meal.
For dessert there is kheer, a popular Indian rice pudding, or vermicelli pudding, Gulab Jamun and many more.
Owner Krishnan guarantees value for money, fresh food, quality and excellent service.
Moksh also caters for private and corporate functions and parties.
Its popularity has grown since its humble beginnings, to the extent that it has opened four more franchises, in Plattekloof, Worcester, Somerset West and Durbanville.
At its 2 Pastorie Avenue premises guests can choose the courtyard or cosy ambience of the ground or upper levels to relax and enjoy their meal.
Moksh also offers a wide range of wines, supporting local wineries such as Laborie, Rhebokskloof and Windmeul Cellars.
