Went to this restaurant with my wife on February 20th. It's a very nice little restaurant. The sea food curry was excellent. We enjoyed our dinner!

The food is the closest to Indian food that you will in Amsterdam. I would recommend this place to all who want to give a try to Indian cuisine.

“Good food and friendly service.”
Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

We ate here on our last night in Amsterdam as it was convenient to our hotel. There were only 3 other tables but it was a Monday night so to be expected. Our waiter was lovely and attentive and our meals (lamb rogan josh and chicken tikka masala) were adequate and very tasty. Both meats were extremely tender. And not very expensive. Recommended.

“'Superb consistent quality Indian dining' Mr Alex”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

Eaten here many times whilst in Amsterdam for business and I continue to do so. Why? Friendly flexible staff who go out of their way to help and the food is outstanding, especially the tandori dishes. The first time I visited this restaurant I noticed that there was a pleasant mix of local clientel as well as tourists. The location is also perfect as it is set back from the tourist rip off area of the main station, thus reasonable prices as well as a vast range of authentic Indian dishes. There are main establishments in Amsterdam trying to replicate this, however do not be fooled and go and try the real deal because you will not be disappointed.

“What a treat!”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

My husband and I enjoyed a delightfully romantic and delicious New Year's night dinner at Moti Mahal recently. Since I can never choose (given so many excellent choices), I opted for the small sampler dish and I was not disappointed. The lentil soup to start was excellent with fresh ingredients and a little taste of lime. Tandoori chicken was perfect as was rice, vegetables, curry and rice pudding for dessert. I was stuffed and there was still more than half a meal left! Hubby thoroughly enjoyed his tandoori king prawns. Service was attentive without being intrusive. From the outside, the restaurant didn't look like much, but the interior was clean, comfortable, quiet and relaxed. I highly recommend this as a spot to visit when your mouth is watering for authentic Indian cuisine without costing an arm and a leg!
