Booked a table for two on a busy Saturday night and the food and service were fantastic, couldn't fault the staff they were friendly and provided information about certain dishes ordered and we didn't have to wait too long for freshly cooked quality food. The meal was the best curry we had you could tell they use fresh ingredients and... More

We visited Moksh for Valentine's Day and were absolutely blown away, so we rebooked for our Wedding Anniversary. Last time we had had the taster menu and were amazed, best Indian experience we had ever had. I had heard that the taster menu had changed so we booked again for our anniversary. However It was pretty much the same with... More

Absolutely the best Indian food we have ever had! From the first beautiful plate to the last, it was spectacular. We had the tasting menu and I felt as if I was in a top restaurant in Chicago or New York. The plates are creative and beautiful and oh so yummy! We felt the service was slightly slow as they...

A busy Sat night in July and no table booked - We tried Moksh on the off chance of a table for 6. Helpfully, they took a mobile number while we went to the pub for a drink, then called us to say they had a table ready for what would be the best Indian meal I've ever tasted. What... More

I Was recommended this restaurant by a friend and it didn't disappoint. The menu is really not a standard, usual Saturday night norm. It's class, really high standard of culinary spices. The flavours are amazing and the presentation is second to none. If you are not sure about what's on the menu then the waiter will go into great detail... More

Decided to review as this sort of place needs encouraging . Indian restaurants have morphed into one up and down the country with Bangla lankan pakistani punjabi being lumped into the same bracket . this is proudly and fiercely different but no so different as to be intimidating . took my partner for birthday and came away delighted . the...

We dined here on recommendation and we were not let down. The restaurant is small,cosy and atmospheric. The food blew me away. We all opted for the Emperor's Tasters which comprised of 5 courses of Indian food like I had never tasted before. Each course was explained thoroughly on service and each course was a culinary delight. There was an... More

Greeted with humor and a real sense of fun!! I brought a mixed group of Europeans with me to the restaurant who were not huge Indian fans and the waiters took time to explain what each item was and help them choose a main course. The food was incredible a great mix of spices with interesting choices and i would... More

Was really looking forward to visiting this restaurant with my family in April. We arrived at the restaurant, decor was nothing special, just a typical indian restaurant, few customers inside and was rather loud. Lots of restaurant certificates at the back of the menu and seems like they are trying to hype the restaurant too much. Most of my family... More

Thank you for your review, the contents of which were disappointing to read. In regards to the lack of choice for vegetarians, we do have to disagree here. We have an extensive choice of dishes on the menu and offer a specific vegetarian Tasting Menu as well. We do believe that Moksh offers something different from other restaurants, but naturally...
