“Excellent”
Reviewed November 25, 2011

We eat quite often in momtaz because the service is wonderful. There are only very few people who cannot be pleased no matter how good you serve them. We never was disapointed as the food and the service by friendly waiters are great as usual. We strongly wood recommend it.

“Food ok, service awful”
Reviewed November 14, 2011

Decided to pay this restaurant a visit whilst visiting friends in the area.

Firstly, I was suprised to see how empty the restaurant was especially
given that it was almost 20:00 on a Saturday night.

Once we were seated we were asked, by a waiter who struggled to speak any comprehensible English, whether we wanted any drinks or poppadums. Once these were delivered we waited around 20 minutes for someone to take our food order and then another 20 minutes for the starter to arrive.

We thought our food had arrived after 10 minutes when the waiter pulled a trolley full of food up to our table and started to dish it out, only for us to realise it wasn't our food at all and was meant for a table behind us.

Once the food finally arrived, it was ok. Nothing special and the sort I would find in any high street Indian.

Diawfulness slightly on the expensive side, especially given the poor service.

Given that there are plenty of other Indian Restaurants in the immediate vicinity I would not reccomend this at all.

“Absolutely Attrocious”
Reviewed August 21, 2011

From the outside this indian appeared upmarket then its competitors in Boscombe. However, when we got a table in the restaurant the table linen was filthy. On ordering food, the staff, including who appeared to be the manager, were incredibly abrupt and rude. You felt as if you were putting them out. When the food came, it tasted as though the sauce had been microwaved and not cooked with the meat. And compared to other Indians, it was expensive for the small portion sizes. Very dissapointing.

“Sunday Buffet”
Reviewed April 25, 2011

Pre booked the table for 7 as thought maybe busy,on arrival the restaurant was nearly empty so plenty of room but we seemed to be cramped in the corner. The buffet was choice 3 starters and poppadom all seemed to have be sliced and shredded to give fuller appearance several requests from ourselves and another table for this to be replenished as very meagre portions. There was a better selection of main courses but sadly lacking in meat as a lot of sauce and no substance also the nan bread came in inch sized pieces, the overall temperature of the food was poor. The wine selection was limited, we asked to see the wine menu and was advised only one choice rose wine.The manager was a cheerful chap but the two waiters were seemed inexperienced and the service was very poor.
