The food was good, but nothing special. Good Indian food.
The only thing which was different for me was the desert of pear stuffed in zaffron.
Excellent food and setting, well managed within covid constraints
Wonderful to see Chez Mumtaj open again and observing very strict procedures. The fusion menu is not being served yet due to the limited numbers but there's an excellent choice of Indian food and ours was to the usual very high standard.
Absolutely incredible. I cannot recommend chez mumtaj enough! Some of the best curry and crafted fusion dishes I’ve ever tasted
This was our 3rd visit and we were not disappointed. It was a special meal to celebrate my husbands 70th birthday. The service is impeccable as is the food. We will return.
Lovely people, excellent service and tasty food
Great food & we had no issues with the service- we went on a Thursday evening. We really enjoyed ourselves and would go back
Excellent food, friendly staff. Third visit, will keep coming back
This restaurant is by far my favourite.
The fish dishes are amazing. The staff are lovely and welcoming
We go chez all the time and we’ve never had a bad meal or a bad word to say
Keep it up guys see you soon
Superb food. Service was excellent. Nice ambience for a Valentine’s Day meal with a great menu. I would definitely recommend dining there on any occasion.
Chez Mumtaj is consistently excellent. Food is imaginative and delicious; service is impeccable; the restaurant is stylish without being stuffy. It is always a treat to go there.
From a service and seating perspective CM is the best in St Albans. Nothing to beat sitting back in those well upholstered seats and be served by the best service crew I've come across.
Thank you for a fantastic evening, we both enjoyed the flavour and originality of your creation.
Thoroughly recommend to everyone!!!!
Probably the best place to eat St Albans bar none.
Remains our favourite place.
Fabulous food as always. Chad’s award winning cooking never fails to delight.
Unusual flavours, outstanding service and a great ambience. Will definitely be going back and would highly recommend.
Fantastic evening from start to finish. Made very welcome, great service and gorgeous food.
Food was superb. Service was a little slow
Very good - as always.
The food was fantastic - as always. The only downer is the wine list - cheap wines don’t go well with excellent food.
The food was amazing, really quirky fusion of french and Indian - great menu and great choices.
We enjoyed champagne which was a good price and delicious.
The service was good although a little slow, it was approx an hour from ordering to main course with starters in between. But we were chatting and drinking so it didn't matter.
Had a lovely time and will definitely go again!!
This is the 5th time I've been here. Its one if my all time favourites. The food is delicious. I love the delicate food with the beautiful Indian flavours/spices. The restaurant is gorgeous and comfortable with a pleasant atmosphere. The staff are friendly and very professional. The only thing that was a little bit annoying this time around was the wait between the meals, it was long. However it was truly worth the wait and I will be going back again. I see the long wait time as a one off it happens sometimes and has never happened before on all my previous visits.
Great quality food - a fine dining experience with seafood the star of the show
Best curry I’ve had this year.
Very enjoyable dinner. Excellent food. Good wine. Service also attentive. Not cheap, but a good venue. Can’t understand why we’ve never been before. We will be back.
Excellent food and service in a lovely setting.
The lamb shank Kashmiri style was superb.
It was another wonderful experience. Food and service were superb . We will return.
Great well worth a visit great service lovely food very much enjoyed
It was our first time there and our reservation was for 20.30. I must say the food was very nice but the service was very slow and somewhat lacking. We waited a while for the order to be taken and for the starters and by the time the main course arrived one and a half hours had passed.
First time I'd visited. A very nice ambience at the restaurant and very attentive service. It got a little slow at the end but not that concerning. The food was exquisite. Beautiful menu and attention to detail. I loved my seafood biryani, with a pie lid. Very inventive and a great taste. I would highly recommend this place.
Really nice restaurant and the food was great. Only real letdown was the fact the restaurant was empty. Literally only had about 3-4 tables of people.
Fantastic food experience. Waiting staff very attentive. Nothing negative to say and will definitely be back.
Loved it. Just wished they had a vegan menu from the growing number of people who are!
I had a LOT of side dishes!
I took s several people from my dining group for lunch. We all ordered different dishes which we all compared and agreed were delicious! It's a shame that it isn't busier at lunchtime as it lacked atmosphere without other diners.
One of the best meals we have had in a long time. Food was gorgeous. Only negative was service was a bit slow but food was worth the wait!
Best cod I have ever eaten and superb service! Always a pleasure!
Service & food were excellent. Attention to detail stood out for me. The sea bass with prawns was well cooked with just enough spice for flavour Beef filet was tender & delicious. Side of vegetables, pak Choi in oyster sauce was delicious too. Thoroughly recommend.
We visited on a Sunday night, the restaurant was very quite, but regardless the service was excellent and the food was incredible. Will definitely be back.
The food was outstanding. My wife and I chose to order the taster menu because we like to try lots of different dishes. We were not disappointed at all. The starter was so delicious, the main was plentiful and borderline too much...actually it was too much for 2 people and dessert was superb. The only thing which could not be controlled was the office party of 30 people who were enjoying themselves. This made it less of a romantic dinner, but wrong night, not wrong restaurant.
The most delicious food around. We were a party of 15, all having a variety of menu options and every dish was superb.
