Restaurant Review – Mogul Divaan, The Imperial Cuisine of Pakistan

12 Jul

Mogul Divaan –  2115 22nd St West, Saskatoon, SK S7M   (306) 343-5005

Why have I not heard of this place sooner?!?! My girlfriend and some friends had their buffet tonight and were all blown away by the flavours and quality. And the price was awesome for the quality.

Mogul Divaan is a small and modest restaurant on 22nd Street by the McDonalds. Each dish was fresh and the highest quality. The Naan was done perfectly and not oily. They had these chicken wings that were unreal! They were marinated in spices and fried to perfection. All the curry dishes had perfect flavour and spice. The spices were mild and balanced. The Butter Chicken was the best I’ve ever had. It had a slight flavour of fenugreek and cumin and a smooth tomato flavour. The level of heat was good (I could have loved it much hotter) for a general audience. The beef balls were nice, simply seasoned and spicy hot.

The service was good and friendly. The owner who was there was very courteous, and informed us when fresh food had come out to the buffet! Our water was always topped up and didn’t taste stale or bleachy.

I am excited that Saskatoon has such a great and affordable place that serves middle eastern food. I can’t wait to visit again.

    MD is alright, and they get a lot of love because of their location, but IMHO the real hero of the Indian buffet scene in saskatoon is Kabab King in Sutherland. Crap location but immaculate naan and awesome homestyle curries. I do like MD’s sarson ka saag (mustard curry) but viewed as a whole IMHO their curries and naan are inferior to the King. Check it out! You might end up helping me put their kids through college. Ha.

      Kabab King is pretty good. I’ve only tried the buffet, but I really liked the flavours. But, I did find the food in general to be a little stale and not overly hot. The flavour of the Butter Chicken was very good! I’m sure if I was to taste the dishes fresh, I would love it.

    I’d say try going a couple more times. That way you will get a variety of curries and good odds on fresh stuff. Personally I’ve never had problems with temperature. I’m a huge fan of their palak paneer. MD and Spicy Bite get lots of love due to their location but…IMHO KK is the place to go!
