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...

We got there 10 mins early and were able to go straight to our table. We weren't forced into buying drinks in the lounge area until our table was 'ready' . We went through to the restaurant area which had a lovely atmosphere and was very well presented modern decor. We were shown the menus however at this point was... More

Revisited Chez Mumtaj after a few months and was blown away by the improvements in the service dept. Staff were exceptional, they couldn't do enough for our group of eight. The service was quick and the staff were extremely polite and attentive. The food once again was abolutely outstanding. This is a top class Restaurant in a local area -... More

Food was ok. Restaurant interior decor was top class. Shame the food didnt match. The food was trying too hard to something it wasnt. Would prefer it to be pure Indian and much more simple, instead of trying to mix Indian with other Cuisines. A nice idea but not for me. Also expensive for what it was. The waiter was... More

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
