Arrived at the restaurant on a whim and despite it being chokka block full we were slotted in and were given a superb welcome. The menu is incredible! The food when it arrived was of the highest quality, delicately flavoured and more than enough. I cannot recommend this restaurant higher, it is simply superb. The management and especially the chefs... More

Amazing restaurant. Been three times and never disappointed. Excellent service and great food. Interesting use of molecular cooking techniques fused with good Indian cuisine. Keep it up!

We visited Moksh during our easter vacation to cardiff. There is only one word for the food they served and it is "awesome". The garhwali chicken is droolworthy and savour worthy. One must visit cardiff just to eat here. The manager is a very pleasant and it's a commendable gesture that he takes the time to talk to all the... More

Moksh is a fairly small Indian restaurant, with an untypical menu offering some unusual choices. Service was very friendly and helpful and the food was wonderful and well presented. My prawn vindaloo was excellent; complemented by popadoms and peshwari naan. The wine list was quite extensive and of good quality without the usual high price tag. I can thoroughly recommend...

I came with friends early in April 2015 on a recommendation. I was a little hesitant, as Mermaid Quay is not particularly famous for its fine dining, and I wasn't sure what to expect. Thankfully, that recommendation was well deserved. Food: This was the absolute highlight of the visit. We went for the taster menu, which was (at time of... More
