It isn't the fanciest place in the world to eat. It isn't even the easiest place in the world to find. In fact, if you didn't know what you were looking for, you would probably drive past Mumtaz Mediterranean Food without blinking an eye. This is exactly what makes Mumtaz such a hidden gem in the sea of faster food Mediterranean joints located across the Front Range of Colorado.
To eat at Mumtaz is to experience the warmth and hospitality that is common to the Mediterranean way. Upon entering the meticulously clean but modest sit-down restaurant, you're greeted warmly as if you are family and your order is promptly taken. You then receive a number and can take a seat, if there happens to be seating available. The thing about Mumtaz is that it has become so popular to the local business people and those who actually know of its existence that the dining area fills up fast during peak times. But if you are fortunate enough to win yourself a seat, you now have the opportunity to take in the stunning mural painted on the main wall of the dining area while you wait for your food.
Your food might not come out fast, which is why it is referred to as a 'faster food' restaurant, so don't go there if you're in a hurry. You're going to want to savor the flavor of the falafel and enjoy every morsel of baklava anyway. While the food takes some time to prepare, rest assured that it is always fresh. Once your food is delivered hot and fresh to your table, you can enjoy the sights, sounds, and flavors of this Mediterranean oasis in the heart of Lafayette, Colorado in Boulder County.
