Indian
Welcome to the Makhani. As we pronounce it (Ma-Kha-Ni) which means "with butter". Makhani specializes in North Indian curries that usually have thick, moderately spice and creamy gravies and the use of dried fruits and nuts is fairly common even in everyday foods. Dairy products like milk, cream, cottage cheese, ghee (clarified butter) and yogurt play an important role in the cooking of both savory and sweet dishes. We make these available at all times of the year for our beloved exotic food lovers. Makhani is located in Old City, One of Philadelphia's oldest and historic districts. Chef Sanjoy Banik's mastery of traditional spices and flavors makes each dish an opportunity to experience classics and delicacies in new and exciting ways. Every plate becomes a culinary journey.

    Amazing food Great service and quick The restaurant is not too big you are actually dinning in the kitchen which adds to the freshness to the food. The curry is delicious and not sweet finally. The price is maybe on the higher side but it is worth it Definitely would come again
