    I love Moti Mahal. The food is great and the staff are very friendly. I find it difficult not to want to reserve a table there on Friday nights when I don't feel like cooking at home.

    We had a group of 8, and they serviced us pretty well. Food was excellent, and they were very accommodating of food allergies. Food is served family style, and portion size was small for 8 to share. We could have used some better direction from the staff to double up some of the orders. I'll definitely return!

    One thing I always like about going to a good Indian restaurant is, they get the whole thing about relaxing and taking to eat and socialize. Moti Mahal Restaurant is such a place and service great food. A family favorite for us.

    Waiter got our order wrong and recycled beef kebabs into vindaloo. Fish pakora appetizer was very salty. Not coming back.

    It was quite a good meal, the vindaloo was defiantly a bit hotter than I was expecting. Quite remarkable. A great evening

    Non-descript on the outside, a description that applies equally to the flavour of the food. Decor and service were good, the menu appeared to offer the vibrant Indian flavours we were looking for. Rice and naan hit the mark, but the main events failed miserably.

    I love Indian food... But not here. We went for the lunch buffet and there were the usual options: butter chicken, yellow dhal, veggie curry, pakoras and tandoori chicken. The two dishes that are not always on Indian buffets were the chili fish and the beef korma. Aside from the fish dish, everything was bland... Not mainstream bland, but blander than that. What saved our lunch was the service. The young lady was attentive and friendly. I wouldn't rush back. There are several Indian restaurants in Calgary, and I will continue to patronize those ones.

    The food was okay. The quality is much better at many other Indian restaurants. The lamb looked like it had been reheated from a buffet table. The butter chicken was mediocre and I wouldn't ask for the restaurant. I won't bother going back.

    Moti Mahal is a great place for Indian food. If you're like me and haven't eaten very much Indian food before, the friendly staff was very helpful and explains the menu and dishes. I definitely recommend Moti Mahal :)
