The food is very nice, though I agree with some of the comments it is not the most authentic Indian you can get. The owner is super friendly. We arrived with a push chair and a two year old, not always the most welcomed set-up in restaurants. He immediately created space for us and took care of the push chair.... More

We chose this restaurant based on trip advisor reviews. The food was excellent. I am writing this in English for anyone who is used to English /Indian restaurants and has struggled to find anything comparable in France. The owner was absolutely charming and whilst he has not lived in England he has worked in many countries and took pains to... More

This small and cosy restaurant is a good choice when staying in Chartes. The food is great, the portions large and the staff very friendly. There is a good choice of dishes on the menu with most of the Indian specialties. The naan is really good and I loved the butter chicken! You get value for your money. We will... More

British visitors will find the somewhat limited menu here to be a bit of a disappointment. Ten of us visited on Sunday 19th of June and in fairness the staff were really cooperative in the light of a group of high-spirited Brits heading on their way back home after the Le Mans 24 Hour race. The food was well-cooked and... More

Have eaten here many times over a 15 year period , I am vegetarian so this is a afe bet for decent veggie grub , avoiding pizzas which are the only real alternative in Chartres. Aubergine pakora for starter very well executed with nice condiments, refreshingly different from standard uk offerings. Lentil curry is lovely and breads are well cooked... More

My favorite Indian restaurant probably ever. I've traveled in many countries and cities but Le Mughal is definitively among the good ones. I'm not gourmet enough at Indian food to judge but I like this one :) The staff is lovely. I know this place for over 10 years, I think the owner changed during this time, but the place... More

The best Lassi I have ever eaten. Pakora, bread and vegetable curries were excellent though not very spicy as seems to be the norm with Indian food in France.

Excellent food & a diverse menu with vegetarian "plat" options. Nice ambiance & attentive service. This is really a great find & SUCH a welcome change of flavors. Portions are generous, some dishes spicy (especially the entree sauces served with the naan bread), so consider yourself warned. We may return again tonight!
