“Great Tandoori Food”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

The starters are simply superby. We had Veg Garlic Kebab. It is like a sheek kebab with a hint of garlic. The presentation and taste was just too good. The food is great. Service can be improved a bit. Nothing of that to complain. Do try the Pan Ice Cream for deserts.

“Such a treat for your mouth.”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

The food is so tasty that you will never want to go on a diet, ever. I am a packa south Indian who loves south Indian food only, probably cause I have never tasted proper north Indian food, but from now on I have an equal liking towards both South Indian and North Indian food. All thanks to Moti Mahal. Cheers to the chef and each one behind this awesomeness. Please don't miss their ”lunch combo“ at all. Its worth the money, trust me. Cheers!

“a piece of heaven in chennai”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

Where do i begin ! After having lived close to a decade in chennai and suffered the so called 'north indian' dishes that restaurants here pass off their crappy cooking as, when my friends suggested we go to moti mahal i wasn't expecting much.

Goes to show how wrong i was.

Our starter was paneer tikka. And from the first bite i was hooked !! The presentation, the flavour and ,especially, the softness of the paneer (especially in a place like chennai where paneer has the consistency of a vulcanised rubber tyre) was , well, EXQUISITE. We had 3 plates of the heavenly stuff before i was satiated enough to move on to the main course.

For main course we had dal fry, shahi paneer, paneer butter masala and malai Kofta with a couple of butter naans.

Long story short. I could have cried from happiness after the meal was done.I was extremely full and happily so. The service was excellent. The place was crowded yet the waiters take are of you. The food was presented in a shahi style. The utensils were also old fashioned and bronze to lend it a mughal touch. And the slightly dark ambience of the place was nice especially after the bright chennai sun.

I would totally reccomend this place ot any north indian stuck in chennai and to local people wanting to taste the TRUE taste of what the north cuisine has to offer. I happily reccomend this place to all my friends now. And not one till date has refuted my claims of it being the best restaurant in chennai !
