I was expecting high end Indian dining like the Purple Poppadum and it certainly wasn't that. I chose well and the food I had tasted very nice - pretty authentic Southern Indian flavours. My husband didn't choose so well and both his courses were a bit bland in my opinion. It all just seemed a bit confused with unnecessary theatrics,... More

So pretentious not true. The starter descriptions were such long winded tripe they could even have been tripe. So we didn't really bother. We asked for water many times. It finally appeared. And the final insult was my debit card being declined 4 times due to a faulty internet connection. The next table of 3 had all 3 of their... More

This is no ordinary Indian restaurant it is rather special. It is certainly the only one of it's kind that I have visited in Cardiff. The food is plated very specially with surprises on delivery. Don't go there if you want a reasonable night out keep it for a special occasion as it can work out a bit more expensive.... More

This little restaurant certainly packs a punch. It's Indian like you have never had before. Firstly the staff are very attentive, efficient, and really friendly. They really care that you understand each dish. Clynton, one of the chefs was on hand at each course to tell us about it. It is certainly not a "blow you head off curry house",... More

We visited for the taster menu after hearing all the positive press recently for this place.. - We knew it was a 'posh indian' style which suited us as we enjoy Purple Pompadom & Mint / Mustard nearby which share the same style of food. Sadly it really was a let down and I wouldnt personally go back. the service... More

I visited just before Xmas with my husband. To say that we were blown away with the meals is an understatement. The thought and imagination that has gone into developing and naming these dishes is incredible. The idea of having CO2 with your meal did seem a bit a little bit pretentious but I am now fully converted. It is... More

It was our 2nd visit. Most of the group hadn't been there before. EVERYONE was overwhelmed with the stupendous quality of food, its stunning presentation and the impeccable service. First time we had the tasting menu - a knockout. This time, we ordered 3 courses with side dishes and breads. Our eyes were bigger than our stomachs and despite best... More

We ate again at Moksh on Dec 27th. Tried the new (to us) taster menu. This was absolutely fantastic. The food was great and we were looked after by the Executive Chef who explained all the dishes to us. I repeat what I have said before - if Moksh were in London people would happily pay twice the price or... More
