My dad had been recommended this place a while ago, and when mum requested an Indian for her birthday meal it seemed the perfect opportunity to try it out. Their taster menu was ambitious and made me worry we were going to a bog-standard Indian that was aiming a bit above its station. To say I was 100% wrong would... More

We have never eaten here before, although have often visited a few of the other "Gourmet" Indian Restaurants Cardiff has to offer. We recevied a warm welcome from polite staff. We all decided to go for the taster menu. The menu is innovative and fun. We had a teenager with us, and he really liked the quirky twists, such as... More

We went here and tried the taster menu which won't be to everyone's taste but I really enjoyed it. Every course offered something different. The only little criticism I would have is the main course is to big for a taster menu. It could be halved and easily be enough. However the food is great the service was great and... More

We went there last year when visited Cardiff just for one day and I like it so much that planned my visit to Cardiff and to this restaurant again a year later. Great service, nice atmosphere, tasty food and a pretty reasonable bill! I would highly recommend this restaurant!

Certainly a modern take on Indian food with it a being a "fusion" of different types of Indian food. Still very good though.

Ate here on a Friday nigh with some friends. The service is friendly and informal... quite a few different waiters service, but all of them were really nice. We all went for the 6 course taster menu and we really weren't disappointed. The courses were all interesting and not the usual Indian offerings... from a spinach soup with ginger ice-cream... More

We ate here on a Friday to celebrate my wife's significant birthday. We were a little disappointed not to be able to get a table until 8.30 (book early) but were very pleased to find the table ready when we arrived. The food and service were first class. They have an innovative approach to Asian food which is astounding when... More

Not a bad place at all, I'm no posh guy expecting super results but I had some good reviews off friends, so I thought I'd try it for my 10th wedding Anniversary, as we were staying in th St. DAVID'S HOTEL & SPA.

Thank you for your review of Moksh; the contents of which we were disappointed to read. We are sorry that you felt you did not have the experience that you were anticipating. Moksh is a modern Indian restaurant that has developed a unique concept. Our menu is reflective of this, and therefore our dishes are not the traditional ones that... More

We had a table booked for a Thursday evening but due to changes we had to ring and alter the day to the Tuesday, which was no problem at all. Once at the table we asked for a glass of wine each while we browsed the menu, within a 5 minutes we had 2 waiters ask what our order was...... More
