Chez Mumtaj is located near to the Restored Odyssey art-deco cinema in St Albans and opposite Prime . We had a lovely family evening and the service was reasonably good. However for a Saturday night it wasn't particularly full or 'buzzy' and we suspect that was due to the prices . The food was nice and we would return, but... More

Visited this restaurant on several occasions. Food is excellent. Not the cheapest around but well worth it. Not had a bad meal there and would certainly go back again and again.

First time eating and was very pleasantly surprised. Service was slow but the food more than made up for the wait. Good portions with great subtle flavours.

During every monthly visit to this restaurant we feel very spoilt having Chez Mumtaj on our doorstep. Our other favourite restaurant is Le Gavroche and Chez Mumtaj is on a par with this. The head chef/owner creates sensational and delicious food that have individual flavours that you will not experience elsewhere. The service is always five star. This establishment without... More

Having been here in the past, I booked this to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Disappointingly they would not offer us the tasting menu, as apparently it is only available on "weekdays". I am pretty sure that Friday is a weekday. I did a lot of research prior to booking on the website, and I don't understand why it is not... More

This is the spin off restaurant from Mumtaj (probably the best curry in St. Albans). It offers an Indian fusion menu with a varied selection of great dishes so there is definitely something for everyone. Portions aren't huge but the food is excellent (the old adage you get what you pay for ) It's not always busy - probably due... More

I'm glad I didn't have to pay otherwise I would probably give it a lower score. There really is no Asian/French fusion. I think it is an excuse to give smaller portions with something strange thrown in, along with some bizarre piping of the sauce. The concept, or actually lack of execution of it, just didn't work for me. Jump... More

If you like good quality Indian fusion then this is it. Great menu whether you want the chefs specials or the traditional which thankfully tastes nothing like your normal local Indian . A little bit pricier but if you want to spoil your other half then go here. Not easy to park.

Four of us ate at Chez Mumtaj recently and we all enjoyed the experience thoroughly. The menu was inventive and imaginative and offered a lot more than the usual stock dishes that is the norm. The cuisine is a fusion of French and Asian - a sort of Paris meets Sylhet - and the surroundings, tableware, service and presentation are... More

I have no idea what those last few reviews are talking about. My husband and I dine here every week, and let me assure you neither the service nor the food are anything beyond excellence. I know it cause i have dined through out the world, and this is one of the best restaurant ever. My family who come from... More
