The best curry house in and around a Saffron Walden by miles. Always guaranteed a good service and food of a consistently high standard. Never greasy.

Weird laid out building but cannot fault the food as it is really good. I have visited as a couple and also a party of 18 and its always been a good experience.

This is not fine dining but it is probably one of the best restaurants in Saffron Walden...steeped in local tradition and always a good venue for a night out with couples, friends,family and larger groups. I've eaten here many times. My last visit was after a period of being away for 3 years. Place hadn't changed one jot. Great on... More

I went here with work colleagues and although we all could not fit on the same table due to the size and layout of the restaurant the food was amazing. Service was fantastic and the choice was great. Prices were good and I look forward to taking the family. I would recommend making a reservation as it looked popular.

Disappointed tonight guys. You were completely empty but still forgot the sides to my starter takeaway. Something so simple ruins the whole meal.

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

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
