I've eaten in many Indian restaurants and I can honestly say that this restaurant serves really good food. I had a lamb do piaza and it was really nice. I can definitely recommend this place

Asked our hotel for a good Indian restaurant nearby and we were pointed to Moti Mahal. Good recommendation. There were three of us and we shared a tandoori meat platter, lamb saag and a vegetable biryani. All very good. Nice atmosphere. All in all I'd recommend this to anyone.

Just few minutes walk from Amsterdam Centraal Station. Enjoyed the Indian set menu. Tasty food & authentic "Indian hospitality" . It was a delightful experience and highly recommend to anyone who is looking for an Indian food in Amsterdam Centraal area.

Amsterdam is chocked full of South Asian restaurants but this one is quite special. Excellent warm reception from the couple that own the place and quite good Indian specialties to follow. A neighborhood gem.

We went there because my wife wanted to eat Indian food. The food was ok. I was surprised there are not many options for vegetarians. Service was bad and the price was very high. Tables were so close that my hand was hitting the guy who was sitting next to me. The towel on the table was torn.

I cannot rave about this restaurant enough! I'm fuming that we don't have one of this quality back home. This evening we had the non-vegetarian platter as a starter and the tandoori chicken/chicken saag for main. It was the best Indian meal I've had, I will come back to Amsterdam just for their food!

Thank Cocktailsanddancing

Neighbourhood Profile
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
