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

When it opened some years ago the food really was as one can get it in India (I pay frequent visits to India) as time has gone on the edge has tended to go and while still way in advance of the normal "curry houses" the tone it down and lose the edge tendency is evident. I urge everyone going... More

This was our second visit to Montaz and even though it was a quiet Monday evening we had an excellent meal again. Excellent value for what I would call fine Indian cuisine. We had Duck, Venison and King Prawns for our mains, all excellent.

I ate here last night with my family for a graduation dinner and we arrived around 9:40 with what we thought was a reservation for 9:30pm. However the reservation wasn't in the book (we're still not entirely sure what happened but it was more likely to be our mistake) and yet the staff were very welcoming and we waiting around... More

The Montaz has wonderful curries with unique twists on flavour, I'd say this is more of a couples night out and I have enjoyed many dishes. I'd definitely recommend if you fancy a quality curry and good wine.

Whether you are resident of Newmarket or a Visitor and have a passion for Indian sub-Continent cuisine, a visit here is a 'must'. The delicate flavours of superbly prepared and presented dishes are enhanced by the friendly, helpful service.

I've been a regular here for a year and always love the food. The paneer makhani is especially good and the desserts (mövenpick ice creams and cheesecake) are delectable. The ambience is fantastic and the staff are brilliant. As an Indian myself I can honestly say this restaurant is fabulous, Singh.
