But the Manager did explain to us 3 times that food is prepared from scratch and takes time. Could have done with some nibbles for the hour wait, besides a sharing starter. So make sure you order some bread etc. I had spinach dumplings with goats cheese. Incredible.

Booked here to take work team out for dinner. 14 of us easily accommodated in their private dining room. Menu really good with great variety and lots of fish content. Food quality was superb. Only reason rating is not a 5 is on service. There was a bit of a misunderstanding regarding pre ordering or not, and service speed was... More

Outstanding pan asian (with an Indian bias) fine dining, at gastropub prices. I recently went to Tamarind in Mayfair and this was twice as good at a third of the price. Pretty close to perfect, although the Dubai Chic decor will not be to everybody's taste.

Chez Mumtaj continue to be an excellent reliable 5* restaurant with food and service that you expect when paying for it. We tend to visit on special occasions and find the menu has changed little over the past 3yrs but this does not pose a problem for us because we recall our past experiences of eating there and base our...

Decided to bring my family on my most recent visit and they all loved it event the little 6 yrs old princess. I agree with other reviewer that a service is... More

There were three of us on a Saturday night. Food was wonderful - creative, tasty with just the right amount of spice / taste ratio. Although this classifies itself as fusion style, there is definitely more of an Indian rather than European twist, but it's all the better for it. And it's absolutely nothing like your average curry house! Service... More

Chez Mumtaj doesn't look like much from the outside but don't be put off by this! Last night I ate some of the best food I've ever had. I think that the fusion concept works brilliantly, very original. We had 4 dishes - soft shell crab, fois gras, black cod and lamb shank - and all 4 were absolutely delicious... More

I have not yet visited Chez Mumtaj at the weekend to sample the tasting menu or high end a la carte. However, I frequently visit midweek for the Sun-Thu menu which is a little bit more like your typical Indian fare with some of your usual favourites, some new takes on classics (crab masala is very good) and a few...

I visited Chez Mumtaj on Friday with my boyfriend and 2 friends. The food was out of this world. We all had a starter and a main each, with an amuse bouche of breaded chicken with Japanese Mayo (oh my word, that was fabulous). My paneer starter was to die for, and my main of Black Cod, words cannot describe... More
