    Food was OK but half of the plates were cold. They brought out a plate of chicken that was missed on our order 20 minutes later, and it was also ice cold. We also waited over 90 minutes for our order to arrive at our table. Meanwhile, a lot of food went out the door via door dash, skip the dishes, etc. So, stay home and order your food. You may even get a hot meal.

    The best Indian food flavors I have ever had. My kids love the mango lassie's and the Chai Tea with some gulab jamun at the end of the night iwas a great way to close out a really good dinner.

    Moti mahal is and always will be the golden standard of Indian cuisine in at least Calgary if not Canada. I recommend the chili fish, lamb bhoona and moti special plate. Heena and Jazmin were such amazing and attentive servers. This Calgary gem deserves your patronage!

    We had 6 for a Birthday celebration and our meal was perfect. We enjoyed every single dish. The Papri Chaat was a nice start to our meal. The chicken in all dishes was tender and delicious. The lamb vindaloo was perfect! The Nann bread was hot and delicious. The waiters were attentive without being in your face. Love the authentic little dishes that they serve food in and the copper water glasses. This is a great restaurant for any family dinner! We will be back again soon.

    Excellent service, excellent food. Our favorites were the Goa curry and the Chicken Masala. I typically enjoy a good tandoori chicken but this one underwhelmed. It didn't deter from the experience at all though. Thank you!

    Hopefully tonight just an anomaly in what has previously been very good service and food. We were not offered beverages, service was slow and inattentive. The quality of the food was mediocre at best; it didn’t appear nor taste fresh.
