The staff are very kind and welcoming, the food is very good, definitely better than the average Indian and this is reflected by it being generally busy most nights of the week. Note, when the horse sales or racing are taking place in Newmarket you definitely need to book in advance.

We ordered our usual favourite dishes, prawn madras and chicken madras with pilau rice. Enjoyed the meal and service was fine.

When you are first one in a restaurant when it opens, without reserved signs on any table, you don't expect sucking of air through teeth and a five minute consultation with the diary. Once over this, the food was great modern Indian. The duck was soft and beautifully cooked, with a fabulous buttery texture. Would return but would probably encourage... More

This is not your average Indian restaurant. The decor is modern, subtle and tasteful. The menu has all the classics along with interesting regional dishes and specialities. The portions are just right and the flavours were great. My other half spotted chocolate samosa on the dessert menu and had to try that! Looked good and tasted good, so I am... More

A really clean, well catered Indian restaurant with a great menu for all dietary requirements for Indian food. The staff are helpful. I'd recommend booking at the weekend and Race days otherwise a table is impossible. The only thing to let this venue down is the parking which is street and very limited

Some friends of my wife and I visited over the weekend. We decided to book a table on a Saturday evening around 1845hrs. Montaz is our regular Indian takeaway so we know the food was going to be good. This was the first time however we had actually had our meal in the restaurant itself. We were seated extremely quickly... More

My very pregnant partner wanted a curry in her last weeks of pregnancy and we grabbed a takeaway from Montaz. Super friendly staff and lovely choice of meals and they will happily make something to suit if you fancy a little different. Not a typical indian restaurant, they describe it as more "home cooked food" and very tasty it is... More

My fellow diners and I were very impressed with the menu, quality of the food and attentive but unintuitive service. Pricing reflects the quality but still reasonable. Recommended to all and I will definitely visit again.

Visited here as recommended by the local hotel we stayed in and we were not disappointed. Very reasonably priced and good menu and have to say we visit a few restaurants and this has to be about the best Indian restaurant food wise didnt compare to anything else we have had before . Make sure you pre book as we... More
