I went with to the restaurant with 5 other friends, I'd read a few of the reviews about the service but thought we'd give it a try. The table was booked for 8.30, we arrived a 8.35, waited 5 minutes to be sat down, the waiter took our order quite quickly which I thought was good. Unfortunately our starters didn't... More

Very good food quality and standard. Friendly waiters and a warm buzzy atmosphere. Very unusual seafood biryani was delicious and other dishes were exquisite.

Our second visit to this lovely restaurant. Almost frightened to go again as the first visit was such a delight . Should not have worried ....staff are attentive but discreet and the food is not only beautifully presented but tastes amazing too! Can't wait to go again.

It is not often that I really enthuse about a place but Chez Mumtaj is just such a place. Friends booked us in for a splendid evening of culinary delight. The ambience and character of the place is modern and stylish, with plenty of room between tables. The first waiter who took our order could have done a bit more... More

Lovely decor and well worth paying the extra money for the food. The menu was great, the food tasty with finely mixed spices and well presented. The staff were great. We were there for Mother's Day when it was busy and we were swerved promptly. The only criticism is the portion was on the smallish side, which left me hungry... More

We visited chez mumtaj earlier this week. I view this restaurant as a special night out . The food is not your average high street curry house fare and the prices are higher than its high street rivals. We loved the food and the menu offers great variety. My only advice is that to meet its potential during the quiet... More

More formal ambience than your classic Indian restaurant, probably in line with the French influences suggested in the restaurants name, this is a lovely place to eat. White tablecloths and a pleasantly calm room are complimented by tasty but not over spiced food (and plenty of choice). Well worth a visit.

Attentive service which kindly overlooked out crass comments as we settled along the lines of we'll be having an Indian then. Whilst the food is spicy it is most definitely not a curry house with wonderful, well presented meals that you just want to go on tasting forever. A treat, price wise, but not excessive and if you go early... More
