Mumtaz Mahal does tasty, Indian food, with overbearing live music, and discomfortingly obsequious staff 9 Reviews
As first impressions go, Mumtaz Mahal is a standout with a plush setting, décor and intricate artwork. There is soft live music but, like most Indian restaurants in town, it gets much much louder as the evening progresses, which doesn’t seem to perturb the many Indian families that dine here. Service can be a little too attentive at times but they are quick with recommendations and the food is worth it with succulent chicken and lamb kebabs, hearty curries that are light on the grease and a nice range of vegetarian options too. Prices reflect the regal theme but if you’re entertaining out-of-towners and looking for a good curry with a pint, you’d do worse than to fall for Mumtaz’s charms.
