The food here is a delight. We went early on a Friday Evening. The couple we went with go regularly and say the food is always good. We had a cracking meal and left full and satisfied at a very reasonable price. If staying in Saffron Walden I would definitely go again.

Went here on a recommendation that it was the best curry in Saffron Walden. Sorry but found the food was bland with no spice. Would not recommend.

Having recently moved to Saffron Walden, I was on the look out for a decent Indian restaurant. I have tried The Mogul twice for takeaways and on both occasions been really disappointed. The food was bland and curry sauces watery. Please up your game, I need a good curry!

First time visit to The Mogul with friends and what a good night it was. Having looked at the reviews decided to book and so glad we did as the place was full. From the street it looks nothing but inside is rusticly (is that a word?) decorated and welcoming. Very attentive service from the start and although the sauces... More

Great atmosphere, great food, place is usually very busy. I am a regular customer and have to say i have never been disappointed. Friendly service and nice touches such as brandy/baileys with the bill! Easily the best Indian around!

The food here is good every time I visit. Love all of it. The staff are very friendly too. The only let down is the toilets could do with renovating and the damp hand towel should be either changed regularly or replaced with paper towels or a hand dryer.

Had a meal for a Birthday celebration in December 2016 always good quality and very helpful. My wife cannot eat Gluten but the menu caters and offers a lot of gluten free options. The bill can add up to a fair bit if your not careful on the amounts of things ordered but that was down to us getting carried... More

I've lived in this area for years and never been here! That was a mistake!! This place served me up the best curry I've had in years. This restaurant is crowded and buzzing. It has a great atmosphere. The staff were friendly and efficient, taking time to explain dishes we weren't sure of. The food was simply outstanding, it far... More
