Since my childhood, Moti Mahal was what families did every weekend in India. I have fond memories laced with Butter chicken, daal makhni, onions in vinegar and naans

I'm not sure my review is fully relevant since many reviewers seems to have had better experience. Nonetheless, I'd say this is a good restaurant, with a great selection of Indian meals, but it seems to me the price is somewhat too high for what you get compared to other places. Furthermore, the place looks tired and is located in... More

The original Moti Mahal, founded in 1947, and claims to be home of the butter chicken. This is a classic restaurant, a must visit in Delhi for anyone looking to find a glimpse of the past present in the future, along with good comfort food.

Seven of us went out where food was shared. Everyone agreed that this was the best food we had so far. The naan was absolutely amazing.

the place is legendary for its butter chicken. the chicken was good but i've had better butter cghicken. the prices are a bit on the higher side. the ambience is dated. the walls are pink. the airconditioners fail to cool the place properly. the place needs an upgrade.
