Mughal-e-Azam the energetic fusion of flavours and ambience – The true taste of ‘the Mughal Empire’

Few years ago the Sparkhill United Reform Church, at the corner of Stratford Road and College Road, was completely refitted and re-opened as a restaurant, serving traditional Pakistani/north Indian cuisine.

Housed in a striking building set back from the street, with an imposing red brick facade and tall white columns, the interior of Mughal E Azam is even more impressive.

Sparkhill’s divine diner is focused on Mughlai cuisine, a style developed in the imperial kitchens of the Mughal Empire, and it’s the kind of place where anyone wanting to expand their curry repertoire can stray from the middle of the road and try something new.
