I've lived in Calgary for 19 years and driven by Moti Mahal too many times to count, but never quite made it in the door. Last Sunday four of us - two vegetarians and two omnivores - decided to give it a try. The food was very tasty, and the service was good. The shortcoming was that the vegetable dishes... More

Jesse and Tony provided great service. Food was excellent. We were a group of 12. We let the Chef decide the food items. Great job. Quick, fair price, great value. Will definitely go back. Thank you

First time coming to this restaurant and I was definitely bowled over. Restaurant is super clean, the food was amazing and the staff fast and friendly. I recommend trying the Lamb Vindaloo and butter chicken. Meal is not complete without some garlic naan.

Were we really hungry or were the dishes particularly good when we were here for dinner? I think it was the latter. We have been here before but not for 3 or 4 years. Maybe they changed chefs or something but the 4 of us were really pleased with our meal. We got 5 dishes plus naan plus rice expecting... More

Been a few times; pakoras are great! They saved my butt one time though when I forgot to make a reservation for 8....and they made room for me! So awesome, family run and you can feel the pride in their craft!

This is one of my rare 5 stars. There was no flaws, from making the appointment, to the greeting at the door, to our server being one of the most interactive and responsive (I can be a bit of joker, hard nose consumer), to the food being beyond expectations. We have eaten here for many years, before they moved into... More

It was our first time visiting Moti Mahal and I hope it won't be our last. This restaurant ranks among the best for Indian cuisine that I have ever had the pleasure of trying. Fresh, intense flavours coupled with a strong attention to detail make this place a notch above the rest. Their vegetable pakoras and sauces were the best... More

Came in for a business lunch only to find the most delicious chicken marsala I have ever eaten. What a beautifully decorated establishment with a very well set up lunch. Highly recommended!

Had another great dinner at Moti...had the mixed Tandoori plate, Papaya prawn, Kashmir chicken, Rogan Josh lamb...Kashmiri Rice...buttered Naan. We always order extra for left overs the next day. Kudos to Diane our server and nice chat with Bill. Best Indian food with peaceful ambiance in town!
