I reviewed Moksh a year ago and while it was good, I was expecting something special and was a bit disappointed. Having eaten here 3 times in the past few months I can say that Moksh fully deserves a 5 rating. The Treasures of the Sea, Einstein in India and .chicken 65 were all superb starters. Mains which we really enjoyed were prawn vindaloo (not too hot) and garlic and chilli chicken- the Khatte Baingan (baby aubergine fried in a very light batter ) was superb. The restaurant is small so tables are close together and always very busy so perhaps not the place for an intimate dinner, but the food is really excellent. Can now totally recommend.

I went to the Moksh a couple of weeks ago, the inside is beautiful, we was looked after, there was just 3 of us, I had a Lamb Meatball Rogan Josh, it was so nice, i never tasted a sauce like it, the meatballs was very tender, and there was plenty of sauce, with plenty of rice, and the garlic bread is the best, i cant wait to go back.... very soon.

Yet another superb Moksh experience. Cheap it may not be, but far and above the average Indian experience. The service also continues to be excellent. We have been many times before and tried the taster menu, but now tend to go for the various other options available: we have yet to be dissapointed. The mango lamb is quite super,b as is the chiil and garlic chicken. If you have any left the waiter will pack up for you to take home.

My tip is to book well in advance as restaurant is small and demand is very high.

Great experience with very interesting cocktails. I had a curry tasting cocktail which was more of an experience than enjoyable. they also serve bangla lager, a rarity in Cardiff. A lot of C02 on the menu and many other fads but when you take this all away you are left with great food. I was in quite a large party of 10 and all the food was served at the same time and warm. It really was a sensation, i must return for the taster menu.
