Went for a meal on Saturday evening 4 couples and I have to say that between all of us not one complaint was heard. Every dish was beautifully presented and so full of flavour . This was our first visit it will not be our last.

The food is excellent but dont go expecting 'typical' Indian food. The fillet of beef was the best I've tasted in a long time. It's just a shame that it took an hour for the starters to arrive and then 90 minutes for the main course. There's no nibbles, no poppadom, no dip. £2.50 for a diet coke and expect... More

Bursting with flavour this is more than your average Indian Restaurant. The food was beautifully presented, the service exquisite and the venue luscious.

Had a truly excellent meal here a couple of weeks ago. Big mix of foods chosen by the 4 of us going from vegetarian through to prime steak with Indian specialities in between. All freshly cooked and beautifully presented. A couple of niggles 1. we were on a table (near fire escape door to London Road) that had such poor... More

I was lucky enough to be taken here by clients, it was somewhere I probably woudln't have gone myself. We went on a quiet Tuesday night and whilst the service was good some aspects were a little slow. The food was excellent and unique, and generous in portion size. Would definitely return with my husband for a special occasion. Only... More

Been meaning to try this restaurant for a long time and chose our 27th wedding anniversary to do so. Fabulously pleasant staff and decor, but the food is something else (!) a wonderful fusion of French and Asian and a true taste sensation. Every dish was beautifully presented and plentiful (no miniscule pretentious dishes here). Everything about our evening was... More

We went for a special birthday celebration complete with tiny grand-daughter. Booked early because of the baby but from the very off were bowled over with the service and attention that we received. Certain family members were dubious about the choice of venue thinking that it was just Indian cuisine, but by the middle and end of the meal were... More

Chez Mumtaj is based in London Road, St. Albans. A fine restaurant with fine people and even finer cuisine. Its an immaculate restaurant with a nice bar and seating area. The menu is varied including a set lunch time menu (if you prefer). Its not a typical Indian restaurant but it offers great fusion food (Indian/French). There is not much... More

Great fusion food - certainly not a typical Indian. Service was a little slow but they were packed to the rafters on a Saturday night. Friendly staff. Not cheap, but good value given the quality and skill at work here. Will definitely be returning soon

My first visit was in early June. At that point, I don't think that they had acquired their current reputation, so I was given very good, although discreet attention and enjoyed a meal that was possibly one of the best I have ever eaten. I was thrilled. But on the four subsequent occasions that I visited, the restaurant was very... More
