The service here is amazing, the staff can't do enough for you and are so attentive. It's the sort of service you would expect in a west end,1 michelin star, place. Not in Vauxhall, I love it! It was our third time here in a 6 month period and the staff remembered us and were so welcoming.

Food fantastic too, so yummy. I rarely go back to the same place twice as London has sooo many restaurants to try, but I can't see us not coming back to Mumbai Delight again and again and again.......

To be clear - this is my second review of Mumbai Delight. I've ordered take-away from the near Vauxhall curry house on seven occasions this year. From a night in with Mrs G, an evening with family and an evening with friends - if the Queen was popping over I might call in a Mumbai Delight delivery.
We go back because the food is extremely good, authentic, fresh, well spiced and the staff are friendly and efficient. And within 5 miles of where we live there are several curry restaurants with very big reputations so it's no mean feat for Mumbai Delight to stand out - and it does so by quite some distance for me.
Here are some of the things on the menu that I've tried

MURGH MALAI TIKKA - beautifully fragrant chicken kebabs - sweet cardamom and cream marinade. My favourite dish on the menu - I could eat these everyday.
TANDOORI METHI LAMB CHOPS - had these twice - decent pieces of lamb - up there with some of the best chops you can get at the likes of Lahore Kebab house in East London. On one occasion they came just right - a bit pink - on another not so pink.
MUMBAI TADKA DAL or DAL MAKHANI - for me always a good test of an Indian restaurant and the only dishes I think Mumbai Delight could improve on. The Dal Makhani is not bad but that Tadka Dal is plain.
BATATA VADA - potato starters with fresh curry leaves - these take me right back to India in a second.
PUNJABI SAMOSA - just like those I've tried on the road in India - not like the usual greasy British version
CHICKEN BIRYANI - they've nailed this - fragrant, spicy and with perfectly cooked rice.

I think it's only a matter of time before Mumbai Delight makes Hardens or gets a review that makes booking a table tricky.
Part of me wants it to stay my (and everyone else in Vauxhall/Oval's) secret but they deserve to make it big.

Being of Bangladeshi descent, I am generally disappointed by ‘Indian’ restaurant food as it seldom matches the home cooking I fondly remember from childhood. However, the Mumbai Delight surpassed my expectations. I was only in London for four days with my family but it was so good we went there for dinner twice, taking a friend the second time.

The really special thing for me was that at our second visit, three days later, the staff not only remembered us, but our drinks order! I always think that is the sign of a great business when staff care enough to remember details like that.

The prices were also incredibly reasonable. I can't recommend it highly enough.

The Tandoori lamb was very good and the Indian ice cream excellent. Strangely the restaurant was very empty, but I was there immediately it opened in the evening.

Hi Kriivari,

Thanks for posting review.
We are glad that you liked the Lamb Chops served.

The Indian ice cream is called Kulfi. We serve this in three flavour Mango, Pista and Malai.
I understand you tried the Malai kulfi, next time may be you want to try the Mago or Pista flavour.

Hope to you see when you are in Vauxhall, London next time.

Kind Regards
Mumbai Delight.
