Open/Close menu Moti Mahal

A la Carte

Sharing food is a traditional part of Indian culture and we suggest that you try different dishes from across the menu, to get a taste of the regional cooking styles and flavours found along the Grand Trunk Road.

In July we are dedicating 4 special dishes to the great artists M.F Husain, Paresh Maity and Jayasri Burman for the Art and Cuisine celebrations. The dishes are inspired by the wonderful artworks lent by Stellar International Art Foundation for our tenth anniversary celebrations.
