As the title states, i am surprised Mughal Spice is still open. Food Standards Agency have never rated this place above a 1, which basically means the hygiene etc is very very poor. Despite repeatedly having this score, the owners do not appear to take notice of the recommendations to improve.

The service was slow and the food underwhelming. No atmosphere and no customers on the night that we were there. Just one couple on another table. We were a group of 15 and our meals turned up over a 30 minute period after a wait of almost an hour. Food was nothing to write home about. Shan't be going back... More

I went with three friends who like me were supporting a long run from Chepstow to Prestatyn. Having seen the runners if we were in need of some good food. We walked in to an nearly empty restauran, but we were hungry so decided to sit and see what was on offer. The food was different, delicious and one of... More

I have to be honest but when we turned up to an empty restaurant we had low expectations.... But then it was a Sunday evening which says it all really. I was very dubious about the quality of food especially when the coke we ordered arrived completely flat. I have to say we were pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious... More

Lovely staff, great food and extensive menu, can usually walk in without booking as it's quite a big place but if there is a few of you booking is recommended so you won't be disappointed, lovely place

Having held this restaurant in the highest regard, I revisited, hoping for the same standard. Unfortunately I was greeted with a sparse restaurant with tables adecked with paper cloths and napkins. Service was ok but hardly attentive. Very expensive and overcharged for drinks.

Slow service, only part of the order arrived and then charged for the parts we didn't receive. Food was ok but not what one would expect from a premium priced restaurant. Just to round the night off presumed manager was very very rude, wait outside for your taxi , we want to close. Cant really see us eating here again... More

Stayed at Marriott St Pierre and decided to go out for dinner on Saturday. Mughal Spice had reasonable reviews on trip advisor so of we went. The way in is quite scruffy....weeds, paintwork doesn't fill you with confidence. So, our expectations were modest but both the food and the service were great. Very friendly staff that served our table efficiently... More
