Thoroughly enjoyed our evening meal here and thought it was the best Indian restaurant I had been to. The staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful. The food was very tasty and several dishes were new to me. We will definitely return.

My wife and I were looking for a cosy restaurant the night before the Crusaders v British & Irish Lions match. We stumbled across the Mumbaiwala and had a fantastic dinner. It's always about the food, but the Service, Drinks, and Decor were all outstanding....More

We are going as a group of 6 on Tuesday, which dishes are good sharing dishes? Had a look at their menu but am a bit confused as to how much there would be, especially when it comes to the starters?
