I have eaten here several times and had really good meals and excellent service. Decided to bring friends and use private dining room to celebrate my birthday. We were 13 in total and used the party menu. The food, service and ambience were great. Couldn't have asked for a better evening. Many thanks.

My wife and I went to this well known restaurant for the first time last night. After reading all the reviews, we were slightly apprehensive regarding the potentially slow service, but hoped the food would be something special. As it tuns out, we were correct on both accounts. Woefully "over attentive" service during the first five minutes, followed by a... More

For me the menu here is a disaster. Indian food has hundreds of years of mixing beautiful spices together and they work not sure why you would tamper with that? An Amuse bouche tasted like a piece of chicken with barbecue sauce more chicken but definetly a chicken dipper type batter. The menu was neither one thing or another -... More

We travelled up from London to meet friends not expecting anything special. How wrong we were. The food was presented beautifully, the choice was excellent, the service was attentive without being rushed, the wine list had a good choice and reasonably priced. The food throughout the evening was lovely, there was a good ambience to the place and I'd thoroughly... More

One of the best meals and certainly the best Indian meal I have had. Food was wonderful and service could not be faulted. I would recommend this restaurant to anybody and will definitely be going back!

Visited yesterday, very well worth it! Food is well prepared and fresh, innovative. The service was excellent and very flexible. Would definitely recommend going here and would go again. It's a little more pricey than a regular Indian restaurant, but then, it's not a 'regular' Indian! Very upscale, impressive nice decor as well.

We were slow to visit Chez Mumtaj having been influenced by comments of price and poor service but I can honestly say we experienced neither. The service was excellent and the price was proportionate to the excellent Asian / French fine dining we experienced. Dishes of this complexity are hard to find in this area unless you are prepared to... More

In recent years I have begun to take an interest in local restaurants and have done my best to visit as many as I can - without getting stuck in a habit of visiting the same places over and over. Truth be told, I have never felt the need (be it positive or negative) to write a review on this... More

This restaurant is well put together and the ambience is enjoyable. Although, the décor could be more in-line with the cuisine. The food is definitely over-priced, but nonetheless it is delicious. The service is poor, slow and often the waiter cannot understand what you are saying. It is one of the only decent restaurants in St Albans hence I would... More

I heard this was the best Indian Restaurant in St.Albans, so expectations were high. I did not expect in the slightest the fine dining experience I was about to have in a decadent and stylish environment, akin to a Zuma / Hakkasan in central London, with food quality to match those and many of the high end restaurants I have...
