Naan Indian Bistro Brings Modern Cuisine to Moorestown

by admin

Naan is a leavened Indian flatbread that originated over 2,500 years ago. Today, it most often accompanies gravy-based dishes in Indian cuisine. It is also the namesake behind Naan Indian Bistro, a new Indian restaurant at the Moorestown Mall. This fining dining spot aims to offer a modern culinary experience new to South Jersey.

The 3500-square foot Naan Indian Bistro seats up to 76 patrons. “Our interior décor is strikingly modern and upscale with a cozy and inviting vibe,” says General Manager Hayden Auguste. Meanwhile, outdoor sidewalk cafe seating is seasonal and seats up to 48 guests. In terms of location, the team believes the mall is a great fit. “We wanted to be convenient for our guests in South Jersey and Philadelphia; and we felt that the Moorestown Mall was the perfect spot to help us accomplish that,” Hayden says.

At the moment, Hayden’s favorite dish is the Chef’s Tasting Thali. In fact, this Indian sampler feast was originally served to royalty and presented on a thali (platter). At Naan Indian Bistro, the tasting features five different dishes on a crescent thali. However, the dish is only served during lunch hours (11:30 am – 2:30 pm). The chef’s tasting lets diners select a protein accompanied by servings of Dal Makhani (Curried Lentils), Navratan Korma (Mixed Veg Curry), Pindi Chana (Curried Chickpeas), and Raita.
