I visited Moksh for the third time last night and have to say what an experience, my father my girlfriend and myself were all amazed at the quality and presentation of the food. if anybody like myself likes to try DIFFERENT but very flavoursome food then this is the place to go. The taster menu isn't the cheapest but for... More

We visited Moksh as part of our first ever trip to Cardiff/UK with good friends who live nearby. My wife and I had never eaten Indian food before. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening here with very attentive staff who were most friendly. The food was great and they will cater for all tastes re spice levels etc. Service: Excellent. Food:... More

Have been here twice with my partner and opted for the tasting menu both times. Absolutely amazing food, cooked to perfection and beautifully served. It is perhaps a pricier restaurant than one I'd normally go to but the tasting menu is amazing value for money. Great quantity and quality! Service was wonderful both times.

Not any better than a normal indian restaurant but with a larger price tag. The food is beautifully presented but too much focus is on the weird combinations rather than quantity of food.

pretty decor, attentive service, high quality tasty food with good portions at suitable prices. The surprise palate cleanser that came with the bill was unique and scrummy, I won't spoil the surprise. Will definitely be returning

Not being a big fan of Indian food I was quite hesitant at my friends insistence that I try Moksh. To be honest I don't think I have been so wrong about a restaurant before.

I love this place - although make sure you book as invariably they are full. First of all I will start by saying if you want your run of the mill curry and a main course for £7 this is not for you! The menu is extensive and if I am honest there is a little too much choice, but... More

I'll start by saying the meal was good, however that is a generalisation. To start the restaurant is far smaller inside than it looks from the outside. The décor can only be described as awful. We ordered pre-dinner cocktail which as the title suggests were unusual. Glowing ice cubes, vivid colours but lacking in taste. Service does seem rushed as... More

Short and sharp: the best experience in an indian restaurant. If you go to Cardiff, don't miss it!!!!!! And please, try the starters. Simply uniquely magnificent. And value-for-money, unbeatable.
