A tiny wee place that belies the quality if the food. A very genteel place to dine. Opens at 8pm. Excellent service. It is a very simple establishment they don't need fancy decor the food does the talking.

It was fun to find this Indian Tandoori restaurant in Barcelona. There was a wide selection of choices and we really enjoyed our meal. The service was excellent as well. If you want a break from Spain's wonderful tapas bars, this restaurant can provide a pleasant interlude.

We got tired of tapas quickly and craved something different. This was a great curry joint with traditional dishes. The service was perfect and the food was exactly what we were looking for. Worth a stop.

I wasn't sure what to expect from curry in Spain (I eat quite a lot of it in England, but wasn't sure how it would compare) and this place didn't disappoint. Friendly staff and good curry. The madras was a little mild compared to the UK, but still full of flavour, and the trandoori mixed grill was huge and very... More

This restaurant isn't all that easy to find- we checked it out on Trip Adviser. The food and service are excellent- popadoms and nan breads very light. It's lovely to walk out of an Indian Restaurant and not feel that we've eaten too much . Thank you

Hello Readers.....& Travellers We were in Barcelona on our vacation. it was our last leg of our 3 week journey to Portugal and Spain. Being Indians our tongues and taste buds need a masala spike once in a few days and so every three four days we would go around searching for an Indian restaurant. And we found Moti Mahal.... More

Staying in El Raval

Neighbourhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
