“Best indian food I've ever had!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Recently spent a few nights in York with a large group of work colleagues, due to the reviews on this site we decided on the Mumbai Lounge. It was a extremely busy night even though it was a Tuesday but that didn't show at all in the service. The two waiters were extremely polite, and our food came out promptly despite every table in the place being full.

First off we were blown away by the food - even the chutneys and sauces that come with the poppadoms were amazing - Im used to the ubiquitous Pataks mixed chutneys however all this stuff looked made in house and tasted superb. The rest of the meal was no different, and if my memory serves me correct (we did drink many of the King Cobras) it wasn't too expensive either.

All eight of us would highly recommend this place - oh, and they gave us all a free spirit of our choice with the bill which was a very nice touch.

“Tasty food, slick service and great value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

There are a few unusual dishes on the menu (plus the usuals) - great combination of flavours. All very fresh, with good selection of chutneys to go wth the poppadums. Very busy and obviously popular (rightly so), with slick service.

“Fantastic we will be back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

This is the first time we have been, the staff were warm and welcoming and the food was exceptional, there was a good choice including the vegetarian options. We could only manage a main course and sundries as the portions sizes were very generous. We are all looking forward to coming back.

“Upmarket curry goodness”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Have been here a few times now. It's not your run of the mill curry house, and the prices reflect this. The food has consistently been very good, with a twist on what you expect. It's also the only curry house I've visited that serves the lethal King Cobra.

There is a caveat: my last visit (within a large group) was marred by very slow service - slightly embarrassing with it being my recommendation/booking. The manager did provide free spirits and agreed to knock 50% of the bill, and reading other reviews suggests they will respond to constructive criticism reasonably.

Certainly a contender for the best curry in York. Traditionalists may well prefer the Garden of India, but for a special occasion the Mumbai Lounge gets the nod.
