More of an upscale Indian place, with great flavours. Not hot spicy by default, which is good so you can enjoy the good spice flavours without the torture! Good grills and bread, and superb daal. The lassi is fun... And you can enjoy a beer with the meal. A nice Indian treat in Beirut... Which is hard to find!

Zeituna Bay is where this restaurant is. Its a verrry Indian place, with an Indian chef. Placed in a very touristic and seaside bay with Yachts and walkway pier. The menu is completely Indian. And typically, spice is plenty. The flavors are genuine, and fiid types are typically Indian. If you want to mix a great area with an Indian... More

I love curry and this was pretty good. Beautiful setting by the water. With row of restaurants and buzzy social scene. As always the tandooris and masalas very tasty more than we could eat. We come here every time we visit Beirut. Never disappoints.

My family and I were craving for Indian food last Sunday. Usually, we would go to the Sporting Club, but last time we went the restaurant was under renovation, we started looking for an alternative, we found Moti Mahal Delux. We agreed to try it and boy we were dazzled. The decoration, the open kitchen, the friendly waiter, the mouth... More

Went here for dinner and we made a good choice. I had the lucknowi lamb which is a mixture of lamb chunks and lamb mince with a slightly spicy sauce – really tasty and something I’d not had before. Rice was well cooked too as was the naan bread – just the right amount of garlic! Cold beer and sat... More

I am personally passionate about Indian food so i decided to try Moti Mahal specially that there are not a lot of choices for indian cuisine in Lebanon. The setting of the place is not bad but could be better as for the food, i liked the chicken with the gravy butter sauce as well as the tikka chicken but... More

Amazing Location.. Beautiful View of Zaytune Bay. Food is great, Service is average, but when table is full with tasty & mouthwatering food you just forgets the service. Best part is they have all the Indian Chef's in kitchen, so they are always ready to alter any available dish as per your taste (regular, mid spicy, spicy or extra spicy)... More

The Moti Mahal is one of many Restaurants lining up in Zeituna Bay, the Yacht Harbour of Beirut. It offers a nice view from the terrace and is nicely decorated. Now, as far as the food was concerned: it was correct but did not really much resemble real Indian food. That said, it was still good and we enjoyed it... More

If you are craving Indian and can't find an authentic restaurant, this place will do the trick. The grills and daals are as Indian as it gets and you can ask for different levels of spice. Fancy location too. Price is a little high and service somewhat lacking, but the food balances it out.
