This is a very popular restaurant with very good food at a reasonable price. We loved the food, service, layout and décor.

“Indian sub-continent food with taste and flair”
Reviewed 18 February 2012

I was in York with a colleague for a training course. A decent meal is the only perk in these situations. The Mumbai Lounge looked good from previous Trip Advisor reviews, so we arrived, without a booking, at about 2030 on a Wednesday evening. The restaurant was busy, with a slightly exuberant twenty-something birthday celebration occupying the central tables. We were asked to take a seat at the bar while the table was made ready. An efficient barman served drinks as we observed the chefs in the open-plan kitchen.
The food was excellent, way above the standard curry house fare that Brits tend to tolerate, with superb presentation and large portions, an oxymoron to the majority of Indian restaurants in the UK.
Straight in to the main course we were delighted by Achari lamb, featuring what appeared to be slow cooked lamb shanks, not frozen boneless mutton, and a huge and delightful chicken dish whose name escapes me but which was accompanied by two rolled puris and a selection of cunningly sliced vegetables, so skilfully constructed that my colleague ate a red chilli under the impression that it was something more innocuous. Sides of mushroom bhaji and saag aloo were exemplary, as was the peshwari naan, soft but not over-sweet. We struggled to eat everything but manfully triumphed, eventually.
Brick Lane in my home City of London is supposed to be the curry capital of England. On the evidence of this meal I think this location should be much further north!

“Excellent lunch”
Reviewed 17 February 2012

Passed by quite by chance and we liked the look of the lunch menu. Upon entering my irst impression was good - good decor and a warm welcome. We both had soft drinks and my wife had one of the three options - I chose another one.
The food arrived in good time, was well presented, good amounts with care taken in the presentation of the rice and salad. The pans used to serve the dish were not to the taste of a previous reviewer but we thought them to be quaint and in keeping with the meal.
Most importantly the meal tasted great and was great value for money in our opinion..
We'll happily come back here whenever next in York and would be delighted to recommend to anybody for lunch - next time we'll have an evening meal.
Wll worth it and good value.

“Fantastic service and a friendly atmosphere”
Reviewed 16 February 2012

We visited Mumbai lounge on Valentine’s Day and received a warm welcome from the minute we stepped in to the restaurant. We had previously booked a table for two, but an hour before we were due to arrive I called up and changed it to a table for four; which caused no problem. The food was both delicious and presented particularly well. We had three courses and all of our meals were great. The staff were friendly yet very efficient and we were not left waiting at all (even with the restaurant being fully booked out). I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant for meals with friends, colleagues or partners.
