Food amazing!

Went for a work function- selection of food served was just amazing! I ordered the fillet for mains- delicious indian fusion twist! Great service! It is rather pricey but well worth a treat!

Classic case of trying far to hard to be far to different. To be clear the ethos of the restaurant is the fusion of French/Indian cuisine. (Although there is a choice for classic Indian dishes if preferred). That's a contradiction to start with. Too many dishes on offer means insufficient thought to the creation and implemention of the dishes that... More

I've been to this restaurant a number of times now and I've always had a positive experience. The food is very tasty and always presented in a top notch style. Asian fusion at it's best!

Repeat visit with our son who lives in St. Albans. We really enjoyed it again, the service was a bit hurried at our request because we mistimed our visit to the Odessey Cinema just down the road, and we took too long In the nearby Farmers Arms pub!! The food was really great for all three of us , starters... More

Great experience for a birthday meal with my girlfriend. Décor was great and food excellent. The scallops to start was one of the best starters I think I have ever had. The lamb shank main was also very tasty. Looking forward to going back.

I have been to Chez Mumtaj twice. On both occasions I have found the service to be detached, as in completely disinterested verging on arrogant and rude. And interestingly there are a number of reviews that mention poor sevice here on Trip Advisor. Although the restaurant does not bother to respond to any of the reviews I can not believe... More

I visited here for the first time with some trepidation after seeing some of the damning reviews about service. However, our service was excellent, from the greeting to the taking of our order & the serving of the food. These are proper dished, cooked to order so you wouldn't expect or want to be served in a hurry. Starters were... More

This place has a very cosy interieur.. the staff is not well trained, as I had to keep asking for a glass, and they werent changing the cuttlery after each serving. The food was very well presented, however it wasnt cooked to perfection. I would go back though

I was really excited when Chez Mumtaj was opened as I enjoyed Mumtaj for Indian takeaway. I have since visited Chez Mumtaj on number of occassions. The early bird set menu is a great deal, although the menu has never changed which is a bit off putting. I have also visited for special occassions as the food is very good.... More

Slightly worried by some of the reviews regarding the service - but we had no issues at all. Service was friendly, and efficient enough with a bit of prompting. However, the food more than made up for this - it really is good. A cross between Indian and French (as the name suggests) and the dishes are all well thought... More
