Lamb dupiaza and chicken jalfrezi were absolutely spot on. Waiter was most attentive and polite. Would have given 5 stars but for the prices being on the high side. 2 main courses, 1 naan bread and 2 beers cost 49.5 euros.

Much to my surprise so far, Indian food turns out to be not so great in Amsterdam and it's a similar story for this restaurant.

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.

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.
