Having read reports in the local paper about the chef winning awards we thought we would have to give it a try.
The older man led us to the table and seemed friendly enough. After taking our drinks order we sat there for at least 30 mins trying to get the waiters attention so we could order our food. There were 4 of us, 3 ordered medium chefs specials and the 4 th ordered a biryani. 3 out the 4 dishes were tasteless, no flavour and no heat. My particular dish contained egg and chicken the egg was whole and when I cut into it it was so over boiled the yolk had gone all grey and the chicken was really dry on some ends I thought I was eating plastic. All 4 of us were really disappointed. I don't like writing negative reviews about local restaurants, maybe it was the head chefs night off ??? We all agreed we will not be returning as Pasha, Cinnamon and even the crookhorn BYO beat this hands down.

Finally I get to visit Pompey's 'best curry house', and I'm quite deflated by the reality. I suppose the buffet might not be the best thing to judge it on (although it's clearly a popular option), but it just didn't have that special distinction I was expecting. There was nothing wrong with any aspect, but with so many local competitors in this market, I expected better to justify some of the reviews here.
Also; no mango in the kitchen - what? In an Indian restuarant?!

We stopped off at the Mowchak after a day out for a take away.
It is a while since we have been here and we found it grubby and over priced.
I think they need to give the place some TLC pretty quickly or they will lose out to the competition.
