Our second evening visit here, one midweek, one Saturday. The latter being very busy and service may get slower as it gets busier. We booked at 7 and left at 10 without being hurried but restaurant was full. Our service and menu choices were great, the staff friendly and we had a great evening, all of us would return. Only...

The restaurant has two menus, one, the more traditional, is only available Sunday to Thursday, and it's very good. The other menu is more contemporary and a mixture of Indian and modern European. Both are great and use high quality ingredients which are cooked with care and attention. The restaurant itself has a small cocktail bar and a private dining... More

Took a client out for pre Christmas dinner - Well without exception this is the best restaurant in St Albans bar non. In fact having eaten at many Michelin stared Indian restaurants in London I would say the food created by Chad is as good if not better. Well worth the short trip out of town to experience the delights... More

On Saturday this was my first time to Chez Mumtaj, it was recommended by a friend who had been a few times before. There were 12 of us and we had reserved the private dining room - there was plenty of space (the table was huge!) and the food was just fantastic. A great time was had by all -... More

Had been here once before several months ago on a Sunday and had a lovely meal with friends. So delighted to hear the wife had booked to return with another couple who had not been before - this time on a Saturday night. However the Saturday menu was quite different from Sunday and they explained that they do vary the... More

This is the first time I've written a review of Chez Mumtaj but should have written one every time I've been over the past 5+ years! We have friends who live in St Albans and when we go out for dinner there I always request Chez Mumtaj. The food is consistently outstanding, with wonderful presentation, fantastic ingredients, brilliantly well prepared... More

Have been to Chez Mumtaj three times now now.Twice on special occasions with my wife. and once on anniversary. The service is superb and dining room is comfortable. . The food is tremendous. About the best quality Indian we've had in this part of the world. I look forward to my next dinner. I would highly recommend it.

The old adage is that you get what you pay for. When you eat here you get good food, good service at a price above average for St Albans. We' ll be back. Enjoy!
