I am a regular customer at Mumbai and I don't normally engage in reviews, however, I felt compelled to review this one. I am impressed with the ambience and the staff are always polite, efficient and friendly. The manager is always courteous and welcoming. The food is second to none and I can't rate this highly enough. There is always a good atmosphere and I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. (read more)

I am a regular customer at Mumbai, and have just been looking at some of the reviews I find it very hard to beleive what certain customers are saying. It makes you wonder if they are competitors! I always have fantastic food and the staff are always amazing, helpful and polite. In all the times I have eaten at Mumbai I have never seen any other customers complain or look unhappy. I recommend the place to all my friends and family and we all enjoy visiting Mumbai, keep up the good work. (read more)

Outastanding service. We were in there for my friends 21st Birthday. The waiters went above and beyond service, in every way possible. The manager was outstanding and so very polite. Serving the birthday girl personally both with food and drinks orders. On a whole the experience was above and beyond all expectation and the staff went the extra mile for the special occasion. The food was cooked to perfection and all 12 of our party were amazed by the service. A return to this restaurant will... (read more)

poor microwaved food- poor slow service- many other better places in wakefield to eat as earlier person said
rude arrogant manager unwilling to sort out problems- likes the sound of his own voice
-probably why place is always empty
AVOID AT ALL COSTS

This was the first time we had eaten at Mumbai and thankfully the last, We were sat at a table next to the dirty stairs and presented with a menu with mold growing on it. The one and only waiter took our order. Just after we had ordered the only other couple in the place were complaining about the quality of the food. When our starters came items were missing from what was stated on the menu, we waited for the one and only waiter to re appear again to pull him about this, when he arrived all... (read more)

I got to Mumbai a few times a month, dining with friends & family while also visiting with clients.
The food is always of a very high standard, you can tell the food is made fresh. A lot of indian food gives me heart-burn, but never from when I eat here. The dishes are always very tasty.
The Staff are always very frinedly, as is the manager who is always more than willing to take the time out to talk to customers.
The restaurant is very clean & smart & there is some fantastic dishes on... (read more)

I had been to the Mumbai twice before. On both occasions I'd had an excellent meal and was very satisfied with the service and the price. Last night however it was far from satisfactory.
We were shown to a table and got some popadoms more or less straight away and then we sat there twiddling our thumbs. Eventually I called the waiter over and asked if we were going to get our starters. Starters came but the plates used for the popadoms were never cleared away. Main course arrived and still...

Slow, poor service with mediocre food. The waiters could barely pronounce the dishes on the menu never mind recommend them. I've had Indian food in a few other restaurants in Wakefield and this was the lower end of the scale, though not what I would call "bad" food, but the sluggishness of the waiting staff and the relatively high prices make this place not worth visiting when there are so many better competitors
It's strange how anyone giving this place a negative review is accused of being... (read more)

Fantastic place, food & warm service...I have several friends that visit Mumbai regularly and I am suprised at some of these other reviews on here...maybe some unhappy competitors!!! lol

My girlfriend and i have just been for a very good meal here. i would recommend this restaurant to other people without hesitation. The service was very good, as was the quality of food. The decor in the restaurant was tasteful and the overall atmosphere was relaxed.
Overall a good find and a restaurant we will be returning too.
The only down side was it was a little chilly, though i surpose it is January and i forgot my Christmas jumper!.

I invited my friends for the first time here and we found the service excellent, the surroundings stylish and comfortable. The staff were friendly and courteous. We didn't wait long for our food. The food was excellent and the manager recommened dishes to us which we hadn't tried before. This place is a real asset to Wakefield. We will all definately be returning! (read more)

Being from Wakefield, I eat here all the time. I love authentic Indian food and have been to pretty much all of Wakefields restaurants.
I have to say that I have never had a bad experience at Mumbai as neither have many of my friends that are regular customers.

Four of us ate there on Saturday night. It was pretty quiet for a Saturday night we thought, but it's really nice inside and the menus looked good. We'd seen a theatre production opposite the restaurant, so it was about 9:30pm and normally I would have expected it to be a bit busier in any restaurant than it apparently was.
We went straight to our table and that is where we ordered drinks: 2 beers, a bottle of wine and some plain tap water. The wine arrived but was just put on the table,... (read more)

When we arrived there was no one around to get us seated, we waited for over 5 mins even the barman wouldn't acknowledge us. Food is fine for the price so if you don't mind eating in a restaurant which is under staffed and you don't mind hanging around for someone to acknowledge you then this is the place but I won't be dining at Mumbai restaurant again.

Possibly the worst service I have ever encountered in a restaurant. Food was ok although the rice was slightly cold. Mumbai Restaurant waiters were clueless and service extremely slow. Would be surprised if any of the starters were freshly prepared. Seem to let anyone in whatever their state, which is surprising for a restaurant that claims to be upmarket. (read more)

I dined at Mumbai Restaurant, Wakefield last night with six friends and was not impressed at all. The only good thing about the place is the decor which is lovely. The food was very average. The waiter we had was quite possibly the rudest i have ever encountered and the service was appalling, the girls at the bar were friendly enough but a bit dizzy and unprofessional. I would not recommend at all. If you do decide to risk it here be sure to check your bill as everyones seemed to be wrong on... (read more)

I visited 'mumbai' after being recommended this restaurant be several friends. I must say having read few other reviews on here I am suprised! This restaurant is definitely one of the best Indians I have had in a long time. It's about time Wakefield got a restaurant that could compete with the likes of many that are in Leeds and Bradford. The service was good, the place and decor is outstanding and the food was very tasty. It was good to speak to the owner who informed me that after the... (read more)

I tried the Mumbai and have to say I found the whole experience underwhelming. On arrival despite the resteraunt being quiet, it was quite some time before we were offered a drink. When taken to the table we had the misfortune to be served by the most arrogant ignorant waiter I have encountered. Whilst taking our order he seemed completely disinterested, not surprisingly the order was wrong when it came.
The wine glasses had been removed on us sitting down, which I found strange particularly... (read more)

I went with my husband for the early doors, two for one, at the beginning of April. The food was delicious, could have been just a little spicier; the waiters were very friendly, lovely decor. I am definitely going back again, I hope they have great success with this Mumbai Restaraunt Wakefield.

I visited the Mumbai after reading that it had won an award and was hugely disappointed by the whole experience. I thought my food was distintly average, quite oily, and I thought the bombay potatoes tasted as if they were made of timmed potatoes. I think there were also tinned mushrooms used in the dishes. I think the least you can expect from a restaurant charging above average prices, is good fresh ingredients. The waiters, although on hand, didn't crack a smile through our visit which... (read more)

Fantastic food - i'd go as far as saying that Mumbai Restaurant was one of the best Indian meals i have ever had - great value for money and good service. We were charged for the pickle tray on the bill although we thought it was free and the wine was a little expensive plus we had to wait 20 minutes for our dessert order to be taken (although i did need that as i was full but been greedy) brilliant and i would go back (read more)

I dined at the Mumbai Restaurant Wakefield with my friend last weekend and had a great time, I have just read Woodie09's review (whoever he is) and I must say I disagree with everything he had to say. I think maybe he went to a different restaurant or has a family member working in a competing restaurant. I have lived in wakefield all my life and am so happy to see such a beautiful restaurant open that serves great authentic Indian food with Prices that are so good! Good luck Mumbai- can't...

I went to this restaurant as part of my works Christmas do. We spent four hours having a three course meal, having booked a set menu which included a glass of bubbly (but let's not call it Champagne) which was a nice touch. Then we were offered poppadoms and pickles, though only discovered later on, after we had settled the bill, that these had not been included in the price (though it does explain why this was actually more than it should have been, and not because we had...

With beautiful surroungings, comfortable chairs, and immaculate washrooms and reasonable prices, this is a restaurant i would definately go out of my way ti visit. I have enjoyed indian food in many U.K. city's for over thirty years and this is the best one yet. I highly recommend the Mumbai in Wakefield. Friendly... (read more)
