Ended up at Moti Mahal in S. Kensington because the popular curry house around the corner was "booked". I was a table for one...myself! Service was attentive and food was straight-forward. Nothing flashy, nothing over the top. Just traditional BIR food at a good value....More

My dad is living in Chelsea right now and insisted he take me here while I was visiting, and I can see why! Some of the best Indian food I've ever had. Light but flavorful sauces, great service.

My favourite indian restaurant. Became a regular and they never dissapoint. Food is fresh and sooo flavoursome. Staff couldn't be kinder. They are all very efficient and polite. Prices low (especially for South Ken). Overall, it is a fantastic place!

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

Hello, thanks for enquiring. Our restaurant is not in any way linked to Moti Mahal in Covent Garden. We've been right here in the heart of South Kensington since 1957. Hope this helped!
