Chicken in a creamy, buttery tomato curry
The food is always good at Moti Mahal and the service is friendly and efficient.
Always a great place to dine. Great staff & great food make it the perfect place to dine.
A party of four enjoyed four dishes of tandori, vegetarian, curry and goat. Supported by two special rices, one with figs and one with dates - absolutely wonderful. Of course the naan bread - garlic and onion - were superb as well. Flavors and sauces were excellent. So good - hardly any leftovers for the attendees to fight over.
Great Indian food. Especially appreciate that all dishes arrived together and were cooked to perfection. The naan bread is to die for!
I am a huge fan of this restaurant and although I don’t go there often, I have been there a lot over the years. I went Thursday Sept 24th and the service was really slow and the food was good, but now up to the standard I remember. Will keep going as I am sure we just caught them on an off night,
Great food very friendly staff, would recommend a visit 👌
Best curry in town
We dine at Moti Mahal regularly, and the food and service are consistently good. We love their fish curry and lamb rogan josh. We’ve tried their other dishes as well, also very good. If you like Indian food, you won’t be disappointed.
Great experience. I haven’t been here in many years but decided to go back recently and so glad I did. The food is still amazing and service was exceptional
Food was good, nothing exceptional, had lamb and chicken dishes, naan bread and some veggie samosas, not impressed with how they have their tables set for social distancing, side is 6 feet separation but had a group behind less than 3 feet and seemed to have more people joining their table, standing around chatting requested to move tables which was fine but don’t think they should have allowed cluster of people, Manager came by and apologized
Always a great meal. You leave feeling it was money well spent.
We have resumed going out to eat in view of the COVID situation. We find that this restaurant has high standards to ensure guests are treated with respect and kindness and the food served is outstanding and sooooo tasty!
Amazing local family owned, and amazing food! Fantastic!
37 years of loving this restaurant. Always a great take out choice, but treat yourself to dining in too.
So good. We ate too much because it was so delicious.
A favourite. The food and service is always great
Best restaurant in town. There’s a reason it’s had such longevity— incredible food &service.
Whether vegetarian or not the food is great, we have both in our family. Service is friendly and helpful, and we always leave happy with the food and with overall experience.
Moti Mahal is always excellent...I have been a regular here for years and cannot say enough about this place! The owners are wonderful and the food is always amazing. We travel a LOT and have yet to find anywhere in the world that rivals their food. Seriously! Their samosas are out of this world, their punjabi daal is second to none, the persian pilau is to die for....the list goes on and on and on.....nobody tops their naan bread....their chai...the kheer....honestly, every dish is absolute perfection. A wonderful family run business that will NOT disappoint.
Server was very helpful with dish suggestion and a wine pairing.
Food was terrific.
Great people watching too.
Moti Mahal is our favourite restaurant in Calgary for East Indian cuisine. Our favourite dishes include: Veggie Pakoras, Butter Chicken, Chicken Tikka, Naan bread, Basmati Rice and Vegetable Poryal..... all delicious dishes. Service is generally good but at times can be slow, as the restaurant is quite popular and generally busy.
Literally the best food and best people, have been a Moti fan going on 15yrs. Such an amazing restaurant run by amazing people who make you feel like family.
Service and food was amazing. We let our server pick our meal and he knew exactly what to pick. Food was fresh and flavourful. Will be back!
Good food and good service, I would recommend the place
Food was good. Service was very friendly and helpful. We would go back.
Best Indian restaurant in Calgary, bar none. Superb food, great selection of beers and wines that pair well, and knowledgable, engaging staff.
Always enjoy Moti Mahal!
Birthday dinner with my friend
Excellent all around
Friendly and helpful service. Wonderful aromas and very tasty food. Service staff was very helpful with food selection.
Food was great. Amazing service.
Specifically mentioned we need the food very spicy and it’s not at all spicy. Quantity of each item is very less.
We often go to Moti Mahal Restaurant when in the mood for Indian food. It has a pleasant atmosphere, cozy but not too loud. The food is very good and service is as well.
Great food,ambience and very friendly service and owners!
This is always a 5, I go here often
This place has the best Indian cuisine in Calgary by far. It is a favourite of ours. We had a wonderful date night here. The service here was very polite and timed perfectly. The restaurant was busy but not too noisy. All of the food was delicious. We both agreed the star of our meal was the lamb roganjosh, it was cooked to perfection. The close second favorite dish we would highly recommend was the tandoori chicken that arrives sizzling hot. We will definitely be going back for more!
Great food with a rather lovely atmosphere.
Great food, quiet cozy restaurant and excellent service every time we eat here!
Came in on Monday with my younger brother and our server (Jesse) was awesome. Got the veg curry and he got some kind of lamb kabob in sauce. So good.
This is the second time I've visited this venue. This is our go to restaurant for Indian food.
