We ordered a take away for 4 and the food was amazing. Food was ready in 40 minutes and we got a discount for collecting the food ourselves. Coconut rice is excellent, 3 of us had chicken dishes all were very good and the Goan fish curry was also superb. Aubergine side dish was also very good. Definitely the best... More

It's so nice to see an Indian restaurant making more of an effort! The menu has all of the favourites along with some more unusual dishes. Between four of us we shared 2 side dishes, 2 rice, a naan and popadoms as well as our mains, everything was delicious and tasted really fresh, plus it wasn't swimming in oil like... More

We visited the races last weekend and after a day out and not wanting to eat at our hotel booked into montaz. I had what I can only describe as not just having a great curry but probably one of the best meals I have has in a long time. The choice was simple, straightforward but not your normal "curry...

Montaz staff were excellent polite friendly and very helpful, nice contemporary setting and very clean with a upmarket feel about it and a good atmosphere. The lamb was so tender, and the quality of food was excellent. I would definitely return and also strongly recommend.

We stumbled across this beautiful restaurant in Newmarket on our way home from Cambridge. The staff were excellent - polite, friendly and very helpful. This is not your typical Indian restaurant experience. The place is a contemprory setting, very clean and welcoming. My wife and I are vegetarians so we ordered a mix of 4 different dishes with some rice... More

I had dinner at Montaz on Wednesday evening. There had previously been another Indian restaurant in these premises for several years ( called "Arif" I think) and I had used it a number of times. However, this was my first visit to Montaz. I think that this is quite an upmarket Indian restaurant judging from the menu, the wine rack... More

First time in Newmarket and got lucky coming here. Some really fresh contemporary dishes (duck starter was particularly good) and well executed classics. Some nice touches too, like the magic hand towel at the end of the meal. All waiters were attentive and there was a good atmosphere, especially for early on a Thursday.

Montaz Indian Restaurant offers fine Indian and Bangladesh cuisine, ambient surroundings and excellent customer service second to none even to my favourite Benares (in London) that has a Michelin Star. If you are ever in Newmarket Atul Kochhar you must go. Their menu is not your average food much much better with lots of Fish, Venison, Duck, Lamb Chops and... More
