This is no ordinary Indian restaurant so don't expect the usual run of the mill curries here. This is contemporary cooking and presentation at its best. All the food is prepared and presented beautifully. The staff are friendly and go out of their way to explain what has been served. Yes its more... read more

Decided to try Moksh with two visiting clients from France and Germany. Having collected them from the airport we headed into Cardiff hoping to find an Indian restaurant open at 6:00pm. The reviews were good on Trip Advisor so we thought we'd give it a try. On arrival we were seated quickly by the rather brusque and dour waiter. Menus... More

My first Indian fine dining experience was great. Very welcoming staff, vibrant atmosphere and top end food. The new manager was very helpful and went to the chef to check info more than once as I have a nut allergy. Considering the quality of the food the price was excellent. I loved my fish and chips two ways and my... More

This might be the best restaurant in Cardiff! I think it's definitely the best Indian by a mile, and there are some excellent Indian Restaurants in Cardiff (Purple Poppadom, Mind and Mustard). The standards at Moksh are clearly set very high. The restaurant itself is beautiful and calming, the service is excellent, and the quality and range of food on... More

Phoned up in the morning to book table for 6 short notice, very accommodating even after having to add to guests. Service fantastic food was out of this world. Everyone in our party was excited by the food. Definitely going to return and try the taster menu. Especially loved the candyfloss trees with the bill

We used to eat at Moksh regularly when we lived on the Bay but since moving out of Cardiff we haven't been there for a while. The food has always been good but now chef Steven Gomes has really elevated things. Every dish had real theatre about it and we sat with smiles on our faces all night. Moksh manages... More
