My favorite Indian restaurant probably ever. I've traveled in many countries and cities but Le Mughal is definitively among the good ones. I'm not gourmet enough at Indian food to judge but I like this one :) The staff is lovely. I know this place for over 10 years, I think the owner changed during this time, but the place... More

The best Lassi I have ever eaten. Pakora, bread and vegetable curries were excellent though not very spicy as seems to be the norm with Indian food in France.

Excellent food & a diverse menu with vegetarian "plat" options. Nice ambiance & attentive service. This is really a great find & SUCH a welcome change of flavors. Portions are generous, some dishes spicy (especially the entree sauces served with the naan bread), so consider yourself warned. We may return again tonight!

We loved this restaurant. Firstly the decor inside and out was tastefully done. The service was polite friendly and welcoming. The husband and wife team were really friendly. The food was amazing. No as spicy as in the uk but in my opion better. The taste was more delicate and the onion bhajas were to die for!!we will definitely return... More

Looking for a break from French food, we found this restaurant on Trip Advisor, and it turned out to be even better than advertised. The food was extremely tasty, some of the best Indian food we've ever had, and the service was terrific. The waiter was a native Malaysian and spoke excellent English, so we were really able to engage... More

I had dinner at Le Mughal during a week night, went early so I had no problem getting a table! Having travelled to India and tasted the food there, I can honestly say that the food at Le Mughal is as authentic as it gets, adapted to european palates, however, just ask for the real deal (Spicy) and you will...

The recipes were adapted to French taste. The dishes are very good but if you expect a genuine Indian food you will be des appointed. The staff is very polite and you must do a reservation because the restaurant are alway full.

Very authentic dinner. When I was invited to this place I thought Indian food in France, but it is like they make sure that the experience becomes Indian gourmet. Will go there again next time in Chartres.

What a joy this restaurant is! The food combines the delicacy of French cooking with traditional Pakistani/Indian cuisine. The owner is a sweetheart, the service excellent, and the food perfect. Only Indian restaurant I've ever encountered that has Nan bread with cheese (to cater to the French!). A must when you're in Chartres and don't want French food.
