Cannot fault the food - a very creative menu. We tried a few dishes which were all full of flavour and were presented in a contemporary fashion. The chef came out to make sure if everything was alright - this was a nice touch. However, the seating was cramped and the acoustics really poor. We felt like we had to... More

Went here twice on a recent business trip to Cardiff. The first time, my boss and I simply split some appetizers and main courses. Service was good, and the food was great.

I have wanted to come here for a long time and I was not disappointed. While we perused the menu we had one of their cocktails which was absolutely gorgeous and I could taste the alcohol!

Another trip to Cardiff means another trip to Moksh. Atmosphere is always great (it is pretty full on a Monday night!!!) and the food was exquisitely presented and tasted amazing. Can't imagine coming to Moksh and not coming here.

Outstanding restaurant with an unusual and interesting menu. Not the usual Chicken Vindaloo, Madras, Tikka.... Lamb Vindaloo... etc you get the idea. A diverse array of courses from different regions as well as a healthy mix of fusion dishes. The menu is also regulary updated so its not like your average tikka masala mill. Comparable to the Purple Popadom, perhaps... More
