Add Mogal-e-Azam to your Itinerary



The oldest and largest Indian restaurant in Nottingham. A true piece of Nottingham’s culinary history.

Mogal E Azam is a family run authentic Indian restaurant in Nottingham. Situated in the heart of the city, with the Theatre Royal and Rock City being our neighbours, this restaurant as vibrant and welcoming as the city itself.

This long established Nottingham Indian restaurant has been open since 1977 and as soon as you walk through the door, it is easy to see why. You are greeted by friendly staff and traditional decor which has made Mogal-e-Azam a firm favourite with diners throughout the years.

Mogal-e-Azam's team of chefs are waiting to introduce you to the delicious, authentic cuisine of India. All our dishes are freshly prepared and infused with only the finest spices. You may prefer dishes which are delicate and aromatic or hot and fiery, so here at Mogal E Azam our extensive menu caters for all palates. We also offer house specialities, set menus, vegetarian and vegan dishes along with a fully licensed bar. All of our food is halal and we have gluten free options available.

If you are organising a party or gathering, then their upstairs function room can provide you with the perfect city centre location for a great evening with friends and family. We can cater from 20 up to 250 guests and our team will help you find the perfect menu to ensure you have a night to remember.

The upstairs function room has capacity for up to 150 people.

Located seconds away from the Royal Centre tram stop, Mogal E Azam are looking forward to giving you a welcome as warm as the spices, and a dining experience as distinctive as their food.

The restaurant hosts many celebrities from the Royal Centre so when you dine with Mogal E Azam you never know who you could be dining with!

The Tandoor Oven

Tandoor is an oven made from Indian clay, a simple artefact which does many things, like bake bread, or roast lamb and chicken. All preparations cooked in the Tandoor are marinated in yoghurt together with a special blend and herbs and spices to suit each variety of preparation. The Tandoor is kept at a high temperature with smouldering charcoal that does the cooking. This process seals in the goodness and the smouldering charcoal also lends the food a special flavour.

Bangladeshi / Indian food description

Indian cuisine is a combination of subtle tastes. Flavours are as varied as the climate of India, and exotic as the people of India. Fragrant spices, pungent and warm spices from the four corners of the country are delicately blended in meticulous proportions to create the dishes we present to you. Each dish will have its own distinctive flavour and aroma which cannot come from any curry powder, but from spices which have to be separately prepared for each individual dish. The blending and preparation of spices is a centuries old craft and indispensable to Indian cuisine. Our traditional dishes are rooted in the soil of Bengal and northern India and they are prepared in restaurant as in our own homes.


Mogal-e-Azam have extensive experience catering for events, both at the restaurant and at the customers own venue.

Whether it is a large group, a small party or a business meeting, they can arrange a buffet style spread or a full sit down, a la carte dinner (and drinks too, if required) and can cater for up to 150 people in our own banqueting room or several hundred if your venue is big enough.
