This really is a 5star for Indian cuisine, The food is always of a high standard, I've been going there for 3+ yrs and never had a bad meal. I enjoy going there every week for my Delicious Prawn Pakora, followed by Lamb Madras and Pilau Rice.... The Waiters Azim, Sahid, and Altaf are Excellent, and always give the best service with a smile...

If you're in the Costa on Del Sol, don't waste a single minute of your time even considering any other Indian restaurant. If you want Indian, the Noor Mahal is it.

Absolutely world class Indian food at it's very best. This was without question the very best Indian meal that I have ever had in my 48 years and the veteran of several thousand Indian meals.

Tandoori is their absolute speciality wth more smoke billowing from the trays regularly emerging from the kitchen than I have ever seen.

Gorgeous pappadums made seconds previously, Giant King Prawns so fresh that they were probably alive just hours before and the best Onion Bhajis ever. The best ever Tandoori Chicken, we tried both on and off the bone. The service was absolutely impeccable. Unusual for Spain in the current economic climate, there were actually enough staff to keep everyone served promptly and with utmost courtesy and efficiency. I only had to raise an eyebrown for one of the fantastic waiters to come scurrying over to provide an instant refill. During the meal, the owner came over to our table to greet us personally and welcome us. With the tourist season now over the place was quite full of British expat locals who all looked as though they were equally delighted at the food and service. Not a single grim face in the place, from staff or patrons. On driving around previously we noticed that other Indian restaurants nearby were literally empty without a single person in. This place, out of season, was 90% full.

For the quality of food the prices were almost extraordinariily reasonable, the Noor Mahal have a thiriving business and a stellar reputation that they thoroughly deserve.

The sizzling tandoori appetizer with chicken, kebab and king prawns for 2 persons was very nice! Good authentic indian flavours. We also had chicken in a medium spicy curry which was good.
