“GREAT FOOD, GREAT SERVICE”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

This is one of the best restaurants I've ate at in a long time. A friend told me about this restaurant so I had to try it out. The atmosphere was excellent and the service was very quick. We didn't have to wait a long time before we got our food. The price of the three course meal was very reasonable considering you get a starter, a main and a dessert. The bolognese was delicious and presented top quality. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes Italian and Greek food after they serve Mediterranean cuisine. Also the two ladies were very lovely who served the food and they were very pleasant. I'd recommend this place to everyone, you won't be disappointed!

“Small restaurant, but perfectly formed”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

A pleasure to return to this Mediterranean restaurant. A pleasant environment with staff who give you time and space yet are attentive when necessary. The food is freshly prepared, so takes some for service, but the results are worth waiting for. The sauces are rich and full of flavour providing an excellent accompaniment to the well cooked meat. We don't visit often, but we've not been disappointed yet.

“Appalling!”
Reviewed May 11, 2014 via mobile

Well just experienced the worst customer service in a restaurant for a long time or possibly ever! Friends booked a table for 4 at Momos for 8. We walked in and were told sorry we don't have a table for you. I said what do you mean it's booked and the young blonde girl on the desk said we have your booking but we don't have a table for you just a table for 2. Eh? I said there is 4 of us! Obviously math not her strong point. I asked to speak to manager and she said he is busy. She then said if you are going to complain I want you out the restaurant! So basically don't bother with this place and the blonde waitress needs a lesson in customer services and basic manners! Thank God Lasun - the Indian Restaurant next door - were more than accommodating and fitted us in!

“Great value ruined by terrible service!”
Reviewed January 14, 2014 via mobile

We went to Momos last night as a party of six after two of our party had previously ate at this restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was nice and extremely good value. The service however was terrible! Both waitresses were morose and inattentive. Despite the restaurant being quiet the two waitresses sat in the bar area rather than attend to tables. To order food and drinks we had to go up to ask to be served on more than one ocassaion. Empty glasses cluttered our table even after they brought new drinks. We waited too long between courses and when our food did arrive, it arrived at different times resulting in half our party finishing their food by the time the rest arrived. Would I go back? Based on the previous experience of family, perhaps but when there are so many other good value restaurants in the area that offer great service it's unlikely.
