We've been going to the Moti-Jheel for years now...Joe recognises my fiancee's voice over the phone and knows our order off by heart! I've had a fair view dishes, all of which are delicious, but the chicken dansak is our favourite and has become the usual! I've had other Indian takeaways but none come close to the Moti-Jheel!

This Indian restaurant is in my opinion the best around the area. I've gone here for years and the food has always been the same quality.

I have ordered from here numerous times over the last four years, not really ever been dissapointed but at the same time my expectations were not exceeded either and I don`t mean that diss-respectfully.

Great food and good value, but please do not be in a hurry! Pointless putting in a telephone order as you will still be waiting for around 30 mins after you arrive, time and time again, best take a book and some knitting! Worth the wait though.
