Food is always excellent. Staff always very welcoming. Very busy, but always room. Take-away is good too.

Visited The Mogul midweek and was surprised how busy the place was, in fact we got the last available table, so would definitely book first next time we plan to dine there. My friend had a couple of enormous and fabulously tasty onion bhajis, done right, these can make a tasty starter and they did! I had a prawn puri... More

The wife and I had dinner here as it came recommended by locals. We were seated in the basement area which appeared clean and warm. Service started fairly swiftly, but declined the longer we stayed and required some prompting. We ordered Butter Chicken and the Lamb Passanda, although they tasted good, they however tasted identical. Naan bread, onion bhajis and... More

Whenever I created into town I always always have a curry from here! I look forward to it for days beforehand! The food here is delicious and full of flavour. The staff are really excellent and always do everything to ensure that your meal is perfect so it is a great place to come as a group also. They even... More

Saffron Walden is conveniently placed for us to meet our best friends for a meal. We had not visited Mogul for many years so when our collective feeling was 'curry night' we booked to revisit an old haunt. I have to say that all four of us had splendid meals, my wife thought her biryani probably the best she had... More

Food was average, service was good, staff helpful but it is a downstairs dining room which is uncomfortable on a hot evening

We were in a party of four and each one of us had a really lovely, fresh, delicious meal. The warm welcome and friendly service were spot on. The whole evening was great.

A big party of us ate downstairs. Downstairs was a bit 'close' and felt a bit 'cellary'. Beer and poppadoms were hurried to our tables by many, attentive waiting staff. Food orders were taken and we weren't kept waiting long. I remain clueless as to what distinguishes a reshmi kebab from a sheek kebab as both were ordered by my... More

As a couple ordered pompodoms. Usually you get a white sauce, onions and mango chutney with them. These came with a brown liquid which was liquidised mango chutney, awful. Prawn on puri followed as a starter. The pancake was OK but the prawns were tasteless accompanied by some green stewed limp vegetable. King prawn dansack for one of us and... More

Me and my fiancée have visited the Mogul on two occasions and thoroughly enjoyed both visits. Poppadoms and pickles to start, Jennie had the meat samosa and I had what I thought would be a small onion bhaji. It turned out to be 2 tennis ball sized bhajis. Eat them both and you'll have no room for your main. The... More
