Chez Mumtaj is based in London Road, St. Albans. A fine restaurant with fine people and even finer cuisine. Its an immaculate restaurant with a nice bar and seating area. The menu is varied including a set lunch time menu (if you prefer). Its not a typical Indian restaurant but it offers great fusion food (Indian/French). There is not much... More

Great fusion food - certainly not a typical Indian. Service was a little slow but they were packed to the rafters on a Saturday night. Friendly staff. Not cheap, but good value given the quality and skill at work here. Will definitely be returning soon

My first visit was in early June. At that point, I don't think that they had acquired their current reputation, so I was given very good, although discreet attention and enjoyed a meal that was possibly one of the best I have ever eaten. I was thrilled. But on the four subsequent occasions that I visited, the restaurant was very... More

I decided it was about time to revisit the best restaurant in St Albans again, and this meal proved why it was just that. I was accompanied by a lovely lady I had been 'seeing' recently; we arrived at 8.45pm and were shown to our table. The venue itself is great; lovely decor, very smartly thought out and had a... More

My husband and I went for the first time last night. We were so impressed with the whole experience. The food was out of this world. Every bite was a taste sensation! Loved it and will be returning.

We started in the Saffron Lounge for cocktails, limited choice, but we all found one we wanted. Most unusual selection, not traditional Indian, the Tikka salmon starter my wife is still talking about, foie gras just melted. Main courses all had fantastic flavour combinations, we also had a selection of naan bread, garlic and cilantro (coriander) being my favourite but... More

Found by accident, now eat here about once a month. Superb food, nice decor, polite service. The lamb byriani is phenomenal. Recommended.

Had a birthday dinner here and I have been a number of times before so I was looking forward to it. Very polite waiting staff throughout and very attentetive. For starter I had the chicken tikka, which was delicious and cooked to perfection, main I had the lamb shank which was nice, but to big to finish. Very well presented... More

We enjoyed our meal at Chez Mumtaz very much. Their dishes are an interesting mix of Indian and Continental foods - as their name implies - and our thanks to the chef for the very interesting combinations of tastes used. This is a restaurant in which to rest after a busy day and enjoy good food and conversation. The service... More

We are not short of eateries in St Albans, nor Indian restaurants, so I was quite excited to be trying this place as it suggested it was different. What a mistake! It was as good as other places, such as Veer Dhara and Chilli Raj but overly expensive and the service was awful. The staff were surly, rude and uninterested.... More
