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

After a fair few years living in St Albans I have finally visited here: twice within a few weeks, in fact. First visit was with about eight other (rowdy) gents and I was so impressed with the food + service that I treated my wife last week for our wedding anniversary. She loved it - she was lapping it up.... More

This was our second meal at CM-we went with family around Christmas last year. As it was my birthday we wanted somewhere a bit special, but not ridiculously priced so booked here for a Saturday night. We enjoyed a pleasant drink in the bar before being seated in the relaxing restaurant. The food and service was out of this world.... More

My husband and I discovered this gem recently, We sat down to dinner and every mouthful we ate we were blown away. The food was so good we went back the next day to give the chef a box of chocolates to say thank you. We have since took our kids and family members there to enjoy the experience. Love... More

When I was told we were going to an Indian for the meal I had visions of vindaloo and pompadoms. What a shock ! A cross between French cuisine and Indian it was mind blowing the food was divine and the service second to none. I would highly recommend it. Can't wait for them to expand north.

Been coming here for a number of years now after randomly walking past the place and noticing the interesting menu. The food is amazing with layers of flavour and any one I have introduced to the restaurant has ended up recommending it to others. The shelled crab as a starter is sublime. The mains can vary depending on the season... 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
