This place has a very cosy interieur.. the staff is not well trained, as I had to keep asking for a glass, and they werent changing the cuttlery after each serving. The food was very well presented, however it wasnt cooked to perfection. I would go back though

I was really excited when Chez Mumtaj was opened as I enjoyed Mumtaj for Indian takeaway. I have since visited Chez Mumtaj on number of occassions. The early bird set menu is a great deal, although the menu has never changed which is a bit off putting. I have also visited for special occassions as the food is very good.... More

Slightly worried by some of the reviews regarding the service - but we had no issues at all. Service was friendly, and efficient enough with a bit of prompting. However, the food more than made up for this - it really is good. A cross between Indian and French (as the name suggests) and the dishes are all well thought... More

With such great reviews and high prices, we were confident a trip to chez mum taj would be a brilliant birthday treat. Our table was booked for 8:30 and we were seated by 8:45. My mother asked to put the coat in the cloakroom and was told it was full and she would have to keep it with her. We... More

We dined on the set menu on a Saturday lunch and were in fact the only dinners. The staff made us feel very welcome and will definitely be going back but in the evening next time.

We booked at table for 9 and were seated at 9.45. By 11 we had our starter (which was delicious). We walked out after that as there was no sign of the main course. Im sure they are normally fine but the service was awful and they weren't even busy. Spoke to the manager who didnt seem too concerned. If... More

Visited many times and had great food and service however DONT go for one of the special menu days such as a Valentines special or another 'special' menu day. This is the only time I have asked for the service charge to be deducted from a bill, hence no tip. The service was awful with long waiting for orders to... More

Food was above average, but not deserving of £55 a head for Valentines night. More disappointing was the appalling service. We waited an hour for our main course, drinks never arrived and when questioned, the waiter said he never took the order!! They loaded 12.5% for service on the bill too!! Overall disappointing, had heard rave reviews but didn't live... More

completely different from the average indian restaurant , definitely on par with the Cinnamon Club in London. Cooking is Asian fusion , that is cooked with delicate flavours , rather than wallowing in sauces as per the standard Asian restaurant . Had the special a la carte which was between £15-20 per plate ,well worth the money . We will... More
