“Good food, presented well”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

Great fun, quirky restaurant. Menu has a good selection of food (although could perhaps do with another vegetarian option) and it's all presented really well - obviously take care over both how the food looks and how it tastes. The triple-cooked chips were fantastic.

Thanks for taking the time for sending us a lovely review. We work so hard on trying to get things correct. We agree with you on having a few more vegeterian dishes and although we do put some more on Specials, we will be adding more on to our new menu in January. We agree about the triple cooked chips. We love them x

“Sunday Lunch”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

Went in for Sunday Lunch and had the Roast Trio after a pate starters. Mu Mu is a great restaurant and the food is excellent, on this occasion we found the service very slow, everything from bringing the wine to recieving the mains which is surprising as they had so many staff working.

Outside is beginning to look a little bit tatty but overal its still the best bar to go to in town that averages over 25 years old in the evening.

Hi,

Thank you very much for your lovely comments about the food and recommending us so highly .

We are disappointed that you thought the service was slightly slow. We do take these kind of comments very seriously and work hard on them in training. It was one of our busiest Sundays when you visited us, so please except my apologies.

As regards your comments on the outside , we are going to be undertaking a renovation on the outside in January.

Thank you.

“Excellent Sunday Lunch”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

Just back from having a family Sunday lunch at Mu Mu's restaurant in Maidstone and have to say - it was excellent. Never been before and selected from Trip Advisor reviews but still turned up with some trepidation.

There were 6 adults and a toddler and we all ate different main courses and there was little or nothing left on any of the plates, and if possible, even less wasted when it came to the yummy deserts.

Our waitress Sue looked after us with the right mix of attentiveness and time to ourselves, the food arrived hot when it should be and cold when it shouldn't. The bill was not excessive at all at about £30 per head including drinks.

Although miles from us it is close to the family and we will be back, it was a delight

“Father's Day”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

Went for Father's Day as they had a set menu which was the same price as their normal Sunday Lunch menu. In fact it was cheaper if you had the indecisive roast as it didn't carry the usual £4 supplement being a 3-course menu.

Wasn't sure what to expect, as my daughters enjoy Mu Mu and usually my daughters choice of venue is very different to mine.

However, I couldn't fault it. Great venue, great atmosphere, great food and the maître d' was most welcoming and entertaining.

We WILL be going back.

“Birthday visit.”
Reviewed October 23, 2013 via mobile

Would usually give 5 star, however on my last trip I was left slightly disappointed.
As usual on the whole we had a wonderful evening - I love the atmosphere and food. However, the burgers were unusually dry when usually they are delicious. Also, the desert menu has changed and I am yet to find a desert that I think is up to the standard of their starters or mains. Cheese board was small for sharer with only 4 crackers - served with Indian spiced chutney which did not go well with cheese and white truffle honey which smelt revolting! Had to ask waiter to take it away and he said the chef said it was normal! Smelt like petrol and put us off our puds.

I go to mumu a lot, so this seemed to just be an off day- however it was my birthday so it was a real shame.

On a happy note - The crab cakes are the best I've ever had!
It's so reasonably priced for somewhere a bit special.

Hi and thank you for your review. Sorry to hear that your burger was dry , I can only think that it has been slightly over cooked.
As for the desserts, we have changed the dessert menu which has proved very popular with most people. If there was a favourite of yours from the old menu, next time you come to Mu Mu it will be a pleasure to have it back for you, we will need 24 hours notice as all of the desserts are homemade.

I am delighted you adored the fish cakes, they are very very popular. You should come and try the Lobster , which is a new addision to the menu, I think you will love it.
