WHO IS BUTTER CHICKEN COMPANY?

Indian butter chicken or, murgh makhani is a recipe that is far from set in stone. Supposedly it was created in a restaurant in Delhi by a cook in search for a use for leftover tandoori chicken. He simmered the spiced chicken pieces in a creamy, tomato curry sauce with a little butter and thus, better chicken was born. Or at least, so the story goes. India’s most popular culinary export (second only to chicken tikka masala) butter chicken recipes come in many shapes and forms. But, they all result in a tomato-red, mild, creamy curry-like sauce just begging to be served with a steaming bowl of basmati rice and warm naan.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMER SAY

Your mouth will water once your nose transmits the wonderful smell of the cooking going on right there for you to enjoy to your brain. Then the race is on. Enjoy. I know you will. Fyi: once they run out each day, they go home. So get in line. But, not in front of me.

It's the wife's favorite new place. The name sake is mouthwatering & melts in your mouth. I'm more of a KAREN I don't think anything deserves 5 stars. She bought me a Mango Lassi and it's my kind of sweet but not too sweet. I love too sweet and it doesn't come in a 32oz size if it did my comment would be it doesn't come in a 64oz. They're ecologically compliant so bring your own silicone or stainless steel straw. They're masked up.

A lot of food for the price! The food smelled so good from the street and we weren’t disappointed. Choose from a couple of entrées with two sides. Buffet style walk-through with seating outside or for takeout.
