Booked here to take work team out for dinner. 14 of us easily accommodated in their private dining room. Menu really good with great variety and lots of fish content. Food quality was superb. Only reason rating is not a 5 is on service. There was a bit of a misunderstanding regarding pre ordering or not, and service speed was... More

Outstanding pan asian (with an Indian bias) fine dining, at gastropub prices. I recently went to Tamarind in Mayfair and this was twice as good at a third of the price. Pretty close to perfect, although the Dubai Chic decor will not be to everybody's taste.

Chez Mumtaj continue to be an excellent reliable 5* restaurant with food and service that you expect when paying for it. We tend to visit on special occasions and find the menu has changed little over the past 3yrs but this does not pose a problem for us because we recall our past experiences of eating there and base our...

Visited Chez Mumtaj 3 times in 2014. Every time food was wonderful & tasty.. has to be one of the best meals I remember. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. Decided to bring my family on my most recent visit and they all loved it event the little 6 yrs old princess. I agree with other reviewer that a service is... More

There were three of us on a Saturday night. Food was wonderful - creative, tasty with just the right amount of spice / taste ratio. Although this classifies itself as fusion style, there is definitely more of an Indian rather than European twist, but it's all the better for it. And it's absolutely nothing like your average curry house! Service... More

Chez Mumtaj doesn't look like much from the outside but don't be put off by this! Last night I ate some of the best food I've ever had. I think that the fusion concept works brilliantly, very original. We had 4 dishes - soft shell crab, fois gras, black cod and lamb shank - and all 4 were absolutely delicious... More

I have not yet visited Chez Mumtaj at the weekend to sample the tasting menu or high end a la carte. However, I frequently visit midweek for the Sun-Thu menu which is a little bit more like your typical Indian fare with some of your usual favourites, some new takes on classics (crab masala is very good) and a few...

I visited Chez Mumtaj on Friday with my boyfriend and 2 friends. The food was out of this world. We all had a starter and a main each, with an amuse bouche of breaded chicken with Japanese Mayo (oh my word, that was fabulous). My paneer starter was to die for, and my main of Black Cod, words cannot describe... More

My 3rd and my wife and sister in laws 4th visit. Great food friendly staff and always not too busy on a Sunday for lunch. Well worth the 40 miles each way from Surrey. If we lived closer it would be a regular

We had dinner at Chez Muntaj and it was a great experience. We haven't been at this restaurant for a couple of years and the food was excellent. We went for the fusion dishes which are simply amazing. The black cod is particularly tasty. They offer discounts during the week if you book on Opentable. Not your traditional Indian restaurant...
