We went to Motion Mahal for dinner on a Friday. The restaurant service is quite fast and the menu has the usual selection of Punjabi dishes along with Chinese food. We are the Afghani paneer, aloo gobhi and tandoori rotis with masala papad. The food and service were both good. The AC was on a very low setting and when... More

Food- We tried the Butter chicken and the Shami Kebabs. The Butter chicken was excellent and is one the the best we have tasted in Dehradun. The Kebabs were... More

enjoyed a lunch with local friends at the Moti Mahal. We tried chicken tikka, chicken biryani, veg biryani, lemon chicken... and of course, naan. good, tasty food, but not the best I have had in our India travels. Nicely decorated restaurant and a relaxing atmosphere. Cost was a bit higher than average but still reasonable.

Still serving nice and delicious Indian food. A small parking in the front. Nice service. A good venue to stop by before heading Rajpur.

Want to eat your favorite butter chicken and butter Naan. Moti Mahal is a place for it. Vinegar soaked onions and Makhani daal add to the delight.

The restaurant is located way downtown but the small sample of food we ordered was very much UP to very good taste. Though my veg soup was too spicy on the throat. Prompt service and nice setting. Note and this applies to many Doon restaurants you get charged for the bottle of water they place on your table even if... More

Really the best restaurant in Dehradun.. Easy-to-find location in the heart of the city, Moti Mahal has palatable dishes to delight both vegetarians as well as non-vegetarians.. On most occasions there is waiting to get seats here, as it is a favourite amongst the locals as well.. Clean ambience and courteous staff who suggest great dishes to their customers.. Superb...
