Have often wondered about this place, and now wish I'd visited sooner! Taste explosion of flavors! The staff are great, knowledgeable and helpful. Highly recommend trying chana dal chat, sali boti and the most amazing and surprising was dahl puri.! Will be back for more very soon!

Mumbaiwala was excellent in every way as always. Nothing is too much trouble. This time we took the kids and it was a great way for them to sample some different dishes and introduce them to different flavours. They loved it too! Thank you team

The whole experience from friendly and inviting wait staff to the food and even the train experience in the washrooms was amazing. The highlights for us were the broccoli and mushroom starters although everything was amazing. We will certainly recommend and return. Thankyou.

My friends enjoyed a lovely dining experience at Mumbaiwala. We were warmly greeted by the staff and had a lovely table at the front of the restaurant. We shared lots of sharing plates, a curry and some sides. The food was so authentic and full of flavour. One of us was vegetarian and there were ample vegetarian options which was great. The cauliflower entree was my favourite, a must try! Overall a very enjoyable experience to which we will be back.

Second time here and once again fabulous. It works really well just to have loads of starters with a few of us & this time one salad which was delicious (murgh tikka). The cauliflower is to die for and will not go past that again. Service is friendly and attentive. Great to see a ChCh restaurant so well patroned at 530pm on a Sunday. Will return again and again.

After reading some other reviews on this page and being a huge indian food buff, I decided to give this place a go for dinner last night. I was more than impressed! The food was delicious! We got the onion and squid bhajees to start - they are a must try and then had the Murgh Makhani and Murgh Karahi to share. All very generous portion sizes and have enough leftovers for lunch today for both my husband and I. Will definitely be back.

Just what we needed - Really enjoyed the authentic food and service with plenty of options for our vegetarian and our gluten, dairy and egg free. No hassle at all about first table booking. I did rush into the BNZ centre without paying enough attention to the map, Mumbaiwala is on Hereford St (as it says)

Mumbaiwala was great!! The service was excellent, attentive but not over the top and professional. The food options were so exciting and we loved the corn and broccoli to start followed by a curry and a naan with onion and coriander. Such great flavour combinations. Yummy cocktails too! Thanks guys - a unique taste experience.
