Moti Mahal NEVER disappoints. We are regulars here because it’s such an amazing place to eat. We came in with a party of 17 for a birthday and they handled it like old pros. The food is amazing and the family that runs it is fabulous.

The food only caters to unsuspecting canadians who don’t have an iota of knowledge about Indian cuisine. The disrespect shown to my culture is insurmountable. Horrible food but you might like it if you don’t understand what actual Indian food tastes like . The decor reminds me of what India ised tp be a century ago . Shameful

The service was attentive with out being pushy. Food came in a reasonable time, re fills of tea and water always available.
Food was lovely and hot. Only criticism was a little over salted.

Always great there. Amazing food and service. Ambience only scored slightly lower because it was very quiet when we arrived. Stampede time

My husband and I have not been able to get out to our favorite restaurant since Covid and our first visit back was outstanding. It is never disappointing. Best Indian food in Calgary. Actually best Indian food in any province I have been to thus far. We LOVE this place.

Moti is our go to place when we have a special occasion or just want a great meal. We really like that it’s not packaged but made fresh, at times we’d like to which cook is cooking and think we’d be able o tell on future visits. Love this place

We had a wonderful meal with excellent service. We are regulars at Moti Mahal and never disappointed. It was a hot evening but the restaurant was very comfortable.Eating Indian food on a hot night is a wonderful way to cool off ! Indians know this but most westerners do not!

Consistently good food and acceptable portions. Kind of miss the papadams they used to serve when you sat down. Always enjoy visiting this restaurant. Nicely spaced out per guidelines and all available tables were full.

Hands down our favourite Indian restaurant in Calgary. We used to live around the corner and would visit regularly. Now that we’re in a different neighbourhood we still go as often as we can and it is always a delight.
