Our group of close to 50 PAX were booked for lunch on 5-June. The place was over booked with multiple groups - much more than what they can handle. On top of this, no buffet but table service. At the end of it, more chaos. Food was never served in a sequence - rice without curry and vice versa. One... More

In fact my Holland friend was not aware of this restaurant. We had gone for lunch at about 1530hrs - they asked us to wait as they were cleaning... More

The food at the restaurant was good and authentic. I was searching for an Indian restaurant with Indian food that really tastes as in India and Moti Mahal was definitely upto the mark with the right amount of spices. It was great to see Indians as well as travellers from other countries relishing the food. Its very near to Amsterdam... More

The service was excellent and very friendly. The food is some of the best Indian food I have had. The quantity can be large and the bread was very hot. This was original Indian food.

We were searching for an Indian restaurant for dinner and found this one on Google. We ordered some Indian dishes, the food was ok but staff is really very unfriendly rather I would say they are rude. They don't know how to behave properly when you are away from your country. Exorbitantly expensive in comparison of other European countries, don't... More

Food is delicious but the quantity and value for food is average. We have ordered chicken tikka masala with 3 garlic naans. Quantity of the Chicken Tikka Masala is only sufficient for 2 garlic naas.

My relatives and I were visiting Amsterdam and went to this restaurant for dinner. The service was honestly so friendly. They even let the restaurant be open for a bit longer as we hadn't finished dinner yet. On top of the excellent service, the food was just mouth watering. Best indian food ever and on a really convenient location. Can't... More

Mr. R P Singh and Mr. Singh of Moti Mahal run a very hospitable Indian eatery about 7 minutes walk from Amsterdam Central Station. Soups, sabjis and the rotis are excellent. We tried the samosas and onion pakoras and found them tasty as well.

Neighborhood Profile
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
