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

This a fantastic French/Indian restaurant that serves some superb food. The early fixed priced 3 course meal is excellent value as is the fixed price lunch. Been here several times and it's my favourite.

Dined here recently with friends, our 3rd visit. A nice sociable drink in the bar, then having been told twice our table was ready, we were ushered hurriedly into the restaurant. Must be busy we thought. After rushing us to take our food order, in a not very busy restaurant, we waited an hour for our starters. Our mains followed... More

I thought we would try this, when we saw there was a parking place outside, which is rare on this major road. Interesting Menu with small portions, so order plenty of side dishes. Lots of seating so not crowded when busy, but a bit stuffy, and my partner doesn't want to go back. I however, liked the different twist on... More

As always service, ambiance and food excellent. It is expensive but good for a special occasion or just because you can!

Not your normal Indian Restaurant. Innovative cooking in a modern French style, with subtle hints of Indian spices and flavours. Chef Patron Chad is a passionate enthusiast who raises the game in no uncertain terms

I travel a lot with work and have hence been fortunate to have eaten in many restaurants around the world. However, as a St. Albans resident, I don't need to travel far for the perfect Modern French-Asian dining experience. Chez Mumtaj is a favorite of my family and, with this in mind, my parents and I frequented the restaurant last... More

To put my review into context I eat out almost everyday think I have a reasonably broad experience on most dining adventures from the top end of Sat Bains in Nottingham to the chearful and welcome pub lunch. Following my visit to Chez Mumtaj I would state that it was the first time in 20 years I refused to pay... More

The food was OKish the service was forced with waiter not even waiting to turn round to roll his eyes(they are probably not used to someone actually paying attention to their face expression...) and they seemed really pushy. I'm all up for asking me if I need anything but I was literally nagged with offers every 5 minutes! I like... More

Lovely place to go this, the food is very good and the setting inside is really nice. Service was excellent and the staff certainly looked after you. Great for a family celebration or that special occasion.
