First time diner here. The food was very flavoursome was hard to decide what dish was best. Four out of four votes for the butter chicken though. Service was great and decor pretty cool. My 12 year old son was so happy he got to celebrate his birthday here. Would definitely like to try other dishes on the menu.

Best Indian I’ve ever had! We had the waiter choose what we got and were certainly not disappointed!! Amazing food, amazing setting and amazing service!

My friend and I are both 'foodies', and were super impressed with the 'twist' to each of the dishes we ordered. We are still pondering on certain flavours, but can't quite get what they are. Everything succulent and super thank you.

Indian food with a difference, a good difference.Each dish tasted unique and it was not your standard Indian food. The butter chicken is a must try.

Took my fiance out for a nice meal. The food was amazing... best naan bread I've ever had! The restaurant had a great atmosphere about it. And the service was fantastic, checking in on us and making sure we always had a full glass. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting great Indian cuisine!

The food was delicious - it was hard to choose what to have because of the extensive options on the menu. The service was great with the staff very attentive even when the place became busy. More platter options to share would be nice!

This is the third time I have been to Mumbawala and by far the best visit. This time I tried their butter chicken and lamb curries. It is not my favourite Indian food, outside India.

Another fantastic night at Mumbaiwala. Food was really good yet again as we tried old favorites and dishes we hadn't tasted before. Three new diners to Mumbaiwala in our group who absolutely loved the atmosphere and their new dining experience vowing to return. Really good service from a new but outstanding waiter.

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.
