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

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

Had an excellent main course here, the Chicken Vindaloo which is VERY spicy. Was served with garlic naan bread which was also extremely delicious. Ordered with a side of chickpeas - again: great quality. The starter (samosas), however, was a bit bland but stil OK. The dessert, a saffron pistachio icecream, was also decent tasting - but served way too... More

We had a really enjoyable meal here. The staff were very pleasant and friendly. Although they were not busy the night we were there it had a comfortable atmosphere.

Staff are wonderful. Food is great. Nothing is too much trouble. Other places in Saffron Walden could learn from the Mogul.
