If the service was better, would be excellent

The food at Chez is extremely good. I have been there at least three times in 2015 and was always impressed at the standard of their food. The real let down for me is when you arrive in their lounge area, it just feels disorganised and seems to take a while before they serve you drinks. I think... read more

Love the food, beatiful presentation and flavours - various choices to please different palates, but be open minded. Attentive and polite service. Nice bar area for a drink before dinner. Wide range of beverages, appertifes and digestifes. Warm, ambiatic and relaxing atmosphere, that feel inviting yet exlcusive during your dining experience. Would recommend 100%

A great experience. The food is great the fusion between the French and Indian works very well. We went on a Christmas party works do, but it is somewhere that I have always wanted to try. All 25 people came away with the same comment. GREAT. All had a variety of starters, mains and deserts, none was disappointing. The atmosphere... More

The combination of both Indian and French food was not one I was particularly keen on however, after reading the reviews, I decided to visit to see for myself and I am very glad I did! The food was delicious and the staff were incredibly attentive.

We had an excellent meal. Great ambience and decor. Efficient service too I couldn't book on open table but, managed to call the restaurant direct and they offered me a booking. Very happy. Would have liked to have spent time in the bar prior to meal so next time!!!!

Four of us went to Chez Mumtaj after the bad review been written but to be honest we found everything decent and smooth. Front house staff is very professional and friendly, foods are amazing and still feel the test...waiting to go back very soon with my family members.

My husband and I visited for dinner just before Christmas based on great recommendations but as soon as we walked in we were disappointed. The gentleman that welcomed us was hanging up a couple of coats but just pointed us to the seating area after taking the name of our booking, then about a minute later told us to follow... More

We went there with great expectations and were badly let down. For the amount they charged the service and food were dismal. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

We went to chez mumtaj for the first time for my father's birthday & from the moment you walk in & see the mahogany furnished bar with leather seats & beautiful asian ornaments you know you're somewhere very special. The food didn't disappoint, from the tempura soft shell crab, to the fillet steak or monkfish, the food was absolutely wonderful!... More

Excellent food from an extensive menu. As impressive as the prestige options looked, I went for my old favourite, Chicken Tikka Masala, and it was the best. My brother also chose a traditional dish and loved it but the rest of our family chose from the more fusion dishes and they were fantastic. A very tasty meal all round!
