My husband and I had lunch at Moti Mahal in Calgary in July 2012. We arrived late, around 1:15 or so, but they were very welcoming. The restaurant is very lovely, with gorgeous wall hangings and colors, and we enjoyed the nice details in the restaurant's drinking glasses and decor.
I ordered a vegetarian item off the menu, and my husband had the lunch buffet. My food was wonderful -- cooked just right so that the potatoes weren't overly soft or mushy at all. The items from the lunch buffet were really good, too, with a variety of flavors, and none of them seemed overly heated or overly cooked. Everything seemed fresh and full of flavor. The bread was good and not oily, so I was quite pleased with it.
The service was attentive, but we never felt rushed or pressured to leave, even though we were the last table there. The wait staff struck the right balance of helping us and serving us, but then leaving us alone to relax and talk by ourselves. We felt very comfortable.
It was a really good lunch, and we hope to go back when we're back in Calgary someday!
