Description: Named in honour of the 1st Earl Mountbatten of Burma, the last Viceroy of the British Indian Empire, Mountbatten ��� The Viceroy���s Lounge is an upmarket Indian restaurant based in the pleasant town of Bishops Stortford. More upmarket than your average Indian restaurant, Mountbatten has an air of fine dining elegance more often experienced in European restaurants, the spacious dining room sleekly decorated in neutral tones and light wood, the tables dressed in pressed white linen. As you may well expect, the Mountbatten menu is nothing if not extensive, offering a wide range of Asian dishes, including a generous number of vegetarian options. In addition to a wide range of curries, both mild and spicy, you���ll find delicious Tandoori grills and less obvious specialties from the less mined regions of India, a real taste of Indian cookery with a gourmet restaurant touch. Need proof that this is probably Bishops Stortford���s best restaurant? Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver���s parents are regular visitors.

Another delicious take away from here to share with friends....recommend the nilgril lamb for something different!

This place used to be a pub called The Red, White and Blue and no one ever seemed to be able to make it work, it changed hands several times before becoming an Indian. Anyway, the change is welcome, after always looking decidedly shabby, the new owners made it look a lot better. I have been to tons of Indian restaurants in the area and this is by far my favourite. The food is excellent, the ingredients are really fresh and it's not too greasy which can often be the case with some Indian places. The staff are helpful and the manager who used to be a waiter at another restaurant we sometimes go to, is particularly friendly. The only thing which lets it down is the habit of some of the waiters to hover over you whilst you're eating and constantly ask you if you want another drink, when in fact you want to just enjoy your meal, if it were not for this I would be giving it five out of five.

Sunday Buffet from 12-3.30. Arrived at 2pm, so about half way through the sitting. A good starter, lovely & hot served at your table. Then the buffet vegetable curry,( tinned carrots , potato, peas & green beans & sweetcorn) in sauce, plain rice & 3 choices of meat (2 chicken dishes & 1 lamb) Asked fro a refill of the vegetable curry, as the container was almost empty. Food was lukewarm, so not for me I'm afraid. Prefer a buffet when there's a lid on food to keep HOT. Don't think we would return for the buffet again.

I have visited the Mountbatten several times and I think it is ideal for families or larger parties. I must say, I prefer the Bombay Butler down the road in Stansted.

Whilst the Mountbatten boasts a medium sized car park and newly refurbished restaurant with lots of atmosphere, the service can be quite slow at busy times. The food is very nice, but I feel the Bombay Butler often provide more for your money.

Staff allow you ample time to pick what you would like and there is a very large selection of dishes available. There is also a good range of beers and other drinks. The Mountbatten is on the outskirts of Bishops Stortford meaning access to the restaurant is only really possible via car, or it is quite a long walk into town.

I enjoy visiting, and often go back from time to time.

If you are after an Indian with a fantastic atmosphere, lots of dining space and friendly staff then The Mountbatten is your restaurant. If you are looking for somewhere quieter, with no car park and slightly larger portions, the Bombay Butler may be better for you.

Went on a Saturday night and had a decent curry - booked same day. Clean, attentive staff, good drink selection. Only wish they'd kept a bit more character in the decor.
