We had a great meal and service at the Moti Mahal while in Barcelona on holiday in August. The food was exceptional and very friendly staff with great customer service. If in Barcelona would fully recommended it.

Wanted to go somewhere other than tapas & pasta, wandered into this place & had a lovely meal - in the corner of the street, unassuming, but the food was great, reasonably priced, well spiced curry (recommend the jalfrezi) really good!

Went there a couple of times to have Indian dishes and we never regretted paying a bit more for exceptional dinners.

First of all, thanks for your opinion. Here the people eat late and you came when we opened recently, so you found it empty. The tap water is not allowed in Barcelona, you won't get it anywhere.

The portion was way too little for the price we pay. You would have gotten better deals at other nearby Indian restaurant that serves good Indian food too.

As you can see the photos uploaded by our visitors, portions are good enuff at reasonable price according to this area. And if you take 2 portions for 4 people, it's normal you won't see that enuff.

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.

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...More
