Something a little different

Came here for my 40th birthday with my wife. We booked through SquareMeal.co.uk which offered 25% off food on a Sunday. Didn't start too well as they couldn't find our booking, but it did get resolved. Service was a bit slow, but they apologised a few times because they were unusually busy for a... read more

Me and my husband discovered this place when we moved to England. We were so tired of all the terrible food the local restaurants passed as Indian. Then we found Chez. Their indian Menu which is from Sunday to Thursday, is amazing. The quality of food as well as taste is excellent and by far one of the best authentic... More

Second time I have been and really hoped the previous experience was not repeated but unfortunately it was. The food is really rather good but the service is terrible. There doesn't seem to be anyone in charge who knows how to run front of house. 2nd time I have been waiting for food for over 2 hours! We were not... More

Our first visit to Chez Mumtaj, and we had an enjoyable meal. Service was very slow, but the food quality was excellent. Whilst the restaurant is trading on European/Indian fusion theme, my duck dish's only Indian content was a small mound of rice! Tasty, but would have been equally at home in a French restaurant. We felt the meal was... More

We had won a significant contract and wanted to celebrate with our client and suggested Chez Mumtaj - Chads restaurant and he didn't let us down. The food was amazing Would highly recommend the trio of fish or meat both were great on the night and the pak choi as an accompaniment to the main course. Glad to see they... More
