The food was normal indian. Nothing amazing. We ordered tandoori prawns and I hated it. The prawns did not taste like prawns. We also ordered seafood curry and it was OK, nothing special.

After checking location and menus we decided on the Moti Mahal in Amsterdam and couldn’t have made a better choice. I can honestly say I’ve not had such a well flavoured variety of food since I was last in India. Top marks.

Food is great and authentic. The staff is extremely friendly and ready to accommodate customers' requests (I can't eat too spicy and they fixed my order according to this). Highly recommended, I will definitely visit this restaurant again soon.

We were 2 families visiting Amsterdam. On our trip, we craved some good indian food and moti mahal satisfied that craving perfectly. If ordered a few different curries and all if them had distinct flavors and perfectly spiced. We really liked the naans which were...served crispy and hot from the tandoor. The owner was very friendly and inviting. Highly recommended to anyone visiting Amsterdam.More

Had a chance to visit MotiMahal, Amsterdam with friends and Family. The Menu is as elaborate as a typical Indian restaurant menu would be but the food is certainly good and tasty. The service was warm and the manager was very cordial and nice person...If you like Butter Chicken, you are in the right place. We also tried Daal Makhani and Lamb Masala Lamb Masala wa a properly developed in terms of taste and it was not like lamb meat thrown in hot spicy masala base. Prices are also reasonable. If you like Indian food and in for a good meal, Moti Mahal is certainly the place.More

By far the best Indian i've been. I live nearby and I'm coming once in a while. Great service and the food is even better. The Naan is the best Naan I ever had, and I had a lot all over the world. Vegetarian food...is great and tasty, Balti and Butter Chicken are beautiful, creamy and tasty. Kingfisher beer is original and taste good with the food. definitely worth to try! Strongly recommended!!!More

We were quite full before we got into the restaurant but the food was so amazing that we finished everything including all the rice. The curry smells really good. Garlic nan has a hint of other spice too. Chicken tikka was excellent. For me, it’s...a 5 stars with no doubt.More
