Behind PAUL, on the road leading up to Kfarhbab, is a pizza place called Montana. I have been wanting to try this place for a while, but never had the chance, so when I happened to be in Ghazir I thought why not! This neighborhood pizza place offers a choice of appetizers, salads, pizzas (regular and gourmet), sandwiches, burgers, pastas, desserts, cocktails and other beverages.
We sat and waited... The sounds of upbeat music playing in the middle of the day pushed me to want to leave. I thought I should be patient, but to make this first impression worse, no one approached us for the order.
The menu is unappetizing with low quality images and complicated text with lots of spelling mistakes... Since no one approached the table for the order, I shouted it out loud. The waitress who's lazy and uninterested in her job didn't recommend anything on the menu... Her voice was too low. I ordered two pizzas, a burger and a submarine to get a general idea of their food.
The place, although simple, seems too chaotic and dirty. It has five rectangular tables with benches and two others with chairs. Near the entrance corridor there is a bar. Red leather, black wood, wallpaper imitating bricks on one side and red tiles on the other. A mirror at the end of the restaurant displays the restaurant's logo. The floor is made of beige ceramic tiles and is slippery - beware. The small restaurant looks like a Pizza Hut.
Half an hour later we receive all the items together, hot pizzas and cold sandwiches:
- The submarine: a big piece of chewy bread, cheese that has melted yet now dried out, and the taste of a canned hot dog. It needs more juiciness, more freshness, a different kind of hot dog and a way to melt the cheese properly.
- The burger: stale bread reheated in the microwave, commercial barbecue sauce and a patty that tastes like kafta. This is not a burger I'll be ordering again.
- Pizza: thin dough, soft on the inside with crunchy crust and a generous load of ingredients. It's a typical Lebanese pizza - spongy, filling, and large - more of a pizza mankousheh with commercial mozzarella cheese.
When you want to pay... expect to hear "Sorry, we only accept cash!" Seriously!!!
Because the place is loaded with Zomato flyers, I will be happy to share a review.
In conclusion, there is a lot that needs to be improved... a lot!
