Food amazing!

Went for a work function- selection of food served was just amazing! I ordered the fillet for mains- delicious indian fusion twist! Great service! It is rather pricey but well worth a treat!

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

Classic case of trying far to hard to be far to different. To be clear the ethos of the restaurant is the fusion of French/Indian cuisine. (Although there is a choice for classic Indian dishes if preferred). That's a contradiction to start with. Too many dishes on offer means insufficient thought to the creation and implemention of the dishes that... More

I've been to this restaurant a number of times now and I've always had a positive experience. The food is very tasty and always presented in a top notch style. Asian fusion at it's best!

Repeat visit with our son who lives in St. Albans. We really enjoyed it again, the service was a bit hurried at our request because we mistimed our visit to the Odessey Cinema just down the road, and we took too long In the nearby Farmers Arms pub!! The food was really great for all three of us , starters... More

Great experience for a birthday meal with my girlfriend. Décor was great and food excellent. The scallops to start was one of the best starters I think I have ever had. The lamb shank main was also very tasty. Looking forward to going back.

I have been to Chez Mumtaj twice. On both occasions I have found the service to be detached, as in completely disinterested verging on arrogant and rude. And interestingly there are a number of reviews that mention poor sevice here on Trip Advisor. Although the restaurant does not bother to respond to any of the reviews I can not believe... More
