Our second visit, the first with a group and the food was very slow and the restaurant busy. This time we went early as a party of 8 again and had the place to ourselves for a while. The food was prompt and service excellent. I had soft shelled crab to start and sea bass to finish ... Exquisite! Can't... More

I expected an good Indian restaurant but got a very good Asian fusion restaurant. Very attentive service, good wine list, and the food was excellent. Everyone in our group enjoyed their meal. Recommended.

Fantastic meal, the flavours of the food are fantastic. Smaller portions than the average Indian restaurant, but to clarify - it's nothing like your typical Indian restaurant! Good variety of dishes on the menu side. This is more fine dining, the staff were very friendly and helpful. Can recommend the softcrab as a starter, lamb shank, black cod (mains) black... More

Fusion dining at it's exquisite best, with presentation and taste rivalling each other for superiority. The finest quality ingredients cooked to perfection. A genuine recommendation for anybody looking for a fine dining experience with a difference.

Good decor and pleasant ambience. One of those big plates/small portions type of restaurants but the food was exquisite. Just don't expect Tikka Masalas and Vindaloos like you would find in a traditional Indian. Staff were pleasant and we received our food quickly.

As you approach Chez Mumtaj you may start to wonder what you've booked but don't be put-off by the exterior of this rather ugly building. Once inside you will be delighted with your choice. The food and service are both excellent making this one of the best places to eat in St. Albans. Something a little different and highly recommended.

There are many fine dining Indian restaurants in London (and allover the world) that manage to do top quality food without combining their food with that of another (very different) cuisine. I had heard good things about Chez Mumtaj despite my reservations about the combination, but I'm afraid it didn't work for me. We didn't have starters but the amuse... More

We were four people for supper on a Wednesday evening. The restaurant was busy but not full. We have eaten here before, our friends had not. As a starter we chose chicken liver for one, salmon for three...superb. For a main course we had a selection of Indian dishes, some chicken, some lamb, with dahl and some spinach. All excellent....
