A great twist on French food, these dishes are inspired by Indian flavours. Really tasty food and great fun service. I enjoyed the taste of all the courses, the chocolate fondant was exceptional. It was good to see a generous portion size when I ordered the rack of lamb. The prices are good to and I would have had to... More

Absolutely excellent from start to finish is my summary. We were well looked after from the moment we walked in. My wife is an excellent cook and very critical when we eat out. She was raving about the quality of the food and I agree with her. This was the best meal we have had in a long time. Described... More

Have eaten in Chez Mumtaj on a number of occasions and our recent meal last weekend was another great success. Two of us shared three starters - the lamb kebab, the duck spring roll and the tiger prawns. They were all excellent. I cannot seem to get past the Black Cod on the menu and so chose that again... first... More

Have visited twice in the past 2 months and although the weekend menu (English/continental dishes done with an Asian twist) is quite different from the weekday menu (Indian menu) both visits were very enjoyable. The food was excellent and plentiful and the general presentation and service worthy of a Michelin-style restaurant. Thankfully the prices are a little more modest, especially... More

We met up with friends on the 23rd for a pre Christmas catch up. we arrived a little late and the bar area was empty so assumed the restaurant was quiet - far from it there wasn't an empty table in the house. The one thing I noticed was how the service had improved significantly from when it first opened... More

Booked by the Mother in law for a meal out on the 30th December, while staying at Sopwell House (New Year Dinner Night) and what a find! A comfortable mile walk from Sopwell House and only a short distance from St Albans town centre lies this gem of a restaurant. Our party of four could not fault this establishment from... More

The food is truly amazing. Honestly one of the best Indian meals in years. The service is a little slow but ok really but the attitude of the waiters is appalling! Surly. Rude. And generally can't be bothered. Condescending. Unkind. It is expensive but I can get really bad attitude much cheaper elsewhere. I won't be going back.

Great fusion food in a smart upmarket atmosphere. Choose this on for a special occasion, get dressed up and have a great evening here. The food looks good and tastes even better. I have been a view times and won't recommend anything on the menu, it is ALL great!

My return visit to Chez Mumtaj with two friends was great. For the friends it was their first visit, for me my second. If you're expecting a normal curry house, go elsewhere. Think of it as a French restaurant that serves Indian food and that will get you through the measured service and the premium pricing. Our waiter was very... More
