Moti Mahal menu?


Looking for some good Indian take-out tonight, and I've read the reviews that say Moti Mahal on Gerrard at Coxwell is quite good. Does anyone have a menu for them or know what is offered? Or some ideas if I make a cold call?

  1. off the top of my head:
    - mutter paneer (peas & cheese)
    - sag paneer (spinach & cheese)
    - malai kofta (veg cheese balls in a tomato cream sauce- really good)
    - channa (chick peas)
    - alu (potato)
    - cauliflour & potato
    - okra & potato
    - mixed vegetables

    im sure if u call them they will help u out, they r very helpful

    oh ya meat dishes:
    the best "butter chicken" EVER!!!!!!
    otherwise they have regular chicken/beef/goat/fish/shrimp curry.
    thats wat i can remember maybe someone else knows any good dishes there?

      Must disagree about this place, if it is the place on Elm Street.

      Not great. Expensive. Very slow but friendly service.

      The food really lacks flavour, compared to other Indian places I have tried.

      I don't think their butter chicken is anything special at all.

      And the naan is no good.

    2. Love their butter chicken.
      Didn't like the bhaji.
      Overall very good and very cheap.
      They don't deliver. Too bad.

      Also try out Lahore Tikka across the street. Best Naan.

        Thanks for the input! I ended up placing an order for pick-up and got the butter chicken, malai kofta, channa and rice & naan. It was all delicious ~ esp the butter chicken. I just wish they'd delivered, but we'll be back!

        Thanks again!

          The butter chicken and malai kofta are basically in the same sauce, so it's better to get one or other, not both. Barely a week goes by that I don't have their veg thali. One of the busiest, most consistent places in India Town.

      2. No, this place is not on Elm Street. Moti Mahal is on the north side of Gerrard. The place is great. In addition to all the previously mentioned dishes, I love the masala dosa. Truly the best butter chicken ever..not the insipid yellow coconutty butter chicken - but the gorgeous, red butter chicken. Lovely.

          where did you have butter chicken with coconut in it? I've never seen that. It must have been some other dish.

        2. I think this place is fabulous...
          inexpensive... get the veggie thaali, you can't screw up at that price... just remember that it isn't opened on Tuesdays though.

          1. Samosas! No one has mentioned theirs and I am addicted. Moti Mahal has the best, flaky pastry with delicate filling. Two makes a mea but try to stop. BTW they are closed Tuesdays.
