Very good Indian food

Very attentive and accommodating staff. Good selection of food, as a person who struggles with anything too spicy there is plenty to please on this menu but if you want your head blown off, they can cater for that too.

This was a last minute booking for a late meal after seeing a film at Saffron Screen (10pm sitting). We were warmly welcomed and the restaurant was lively and busy. Orders were taken, food arrived quickly and was delicious. Service was friendly and quick. Will certainly visit again.

The Mogul is cozy and has a very nice atmosphere. Service is excellent - attentive but not overbearing. The food is consistently good. It is not overly hot - we like our curries to have a bit of a bite so our advice is to go for something one step hotter than you would usually have. For example, their Madras... More

This is always a busy restaurant and very popular amongst the locals. The staff and management are always very welcoming and the place had a great atmosphere. The food doesn't disappoint either, had a very tasty chicken tikka with a veggie curry. Another great feature is that they have a superb alternative to the rather bland Kingfisher lager or Cobra...

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
