“Small Country Town Offers Up Middle Eastern Fare”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012

This restaurant was one which a couple of friends in Urunga had been longing to try. When we arrived in the early evening there were quite a number of people sitting outside and it had a happy vibe. The food is a mix of Moroccan meets Indian with some South East Asian influences. Our group had the mezza plate as an entree. This was a good choice for us, and offered just enough kick to get our taste buds acquainted with the flavours to follow in the main course. We then had the prawns in a thai red curry sauce, kofta lamb curry and spatchcock on a bed of lightly flavoured sweet potato. If you like the flavours of middle eastern food, then this restaurant should suit. We enjoyed good service, quality produce and attentive staff. And Bellingen is a great place to visit as well. After our meal we enjoyed walking up and down the main street to enjoy the historical street facade and peer into the Christmas displays in the windows.

“Didn't quite meet expectations..”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

We were advised to dine at Mouza by a local on a recent trip to Belligen. The menu looks fabulous, and we were greeted by a friendly waitress - so things started off well.
We ordered two mains to share, the pakora tempura and a lamb and spinach curry. The pakora tempura dish lacked flavour and seasoning. The lamb curry dish was an improvement on the pakora - but still need a bit more zing. I felt the dishes were also slightly overpriced for the sizes and style of food.

“Fantastic food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

My wife and I stopped by this venue one lunchtime over a year ago but still rave about the standard of the food. We travelled around NSW for about a month eating in many expensive restaurants in Sydney and other towns but none of them matched this small business in Bellingen. When we return on our next holiday we will call in again

“Delightful Surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

we had planned to have dinner at the pub but the kitchen was closed for renovation and there are not many other choices on a Wednesday night. We spotted Mouza and decided to give it a try. Coming from Sydney we are spoiled for choice in good quality restaurants of all ethic origins and yet we were blown away by the food in Mouza. We decided to try all the specials and sought the advice from the owner who was a great raconteur. We sat at the outdoor area and enjoyed the beautiful night and great background music.
The quality and taste of the food was fabulous not at all run of the mill! We will definitely go again.
PS A range of organic wines on offer too !
