After an afternoon trip to Saffron Walden we thought we’d go for an early meal before heading home and decided to give Mogul a go based on it’s Trip Advisor rating. I’m not sure if we hit an off day, but be honest we’re not really sure what the fuss is about. The service was very good and friendly and... More

I have visited the Mogul many times & certainly will go back, I've never had a bad meal either take away or eating in. The manager & most of the staff are pleasent one rouge. But you must go and try the food.

The food is okay but it's terrible value. Being better than the other (limited) places in town seems to grant them permission to overcharge. Market forces at work in a town starved of decent restaurants

Five in the party, all eating different dishes, all had individual textures and tastes. The best Indian, Bangladeshi meal for a long time. Wished I lived nearer, I would become a regular. Service was just as it should be. Surprised to see an Indian ale brewed locally, which was also enjoyed.

We have visited this restaurant twice in the last few weeks. The welcome is very friendly and service unobtrusive and professional. The decor is very cosy and seating is very comfy definitely better than your average Indian. The menu is varied and has a good number of non standard dishes. It is especially strong in fish based curries. All the... More

We haven't been to the Mogul for a long while and I'm unsure as to why that is, because the last time we were there we enjoyed an absolute feast and this time was exactly the same. The food was chosen for us by the waiter as was last time. The reason being we all wanted to try different tastes... More

The service alone was worth the trip. Fortunately for me, the food was also wonderful. Most surprisingly, the wine list was great, and well matched the food.

Ate at the Mogul, with colleagues, for only the 2nd time in 17years in Walden. Service good, food very tasty and reasonable value - it made a refreshing change from eating at one of the Italian chain restaurants and we weren't fleeced for the drinks.
