Excellent food, be prepared to wait

First night we ate there, we waited an hour and half for the food to arrive which would have been fine as we had a pleasant view over the beach, had it not been late and we were with a four year old. The food though is excellent and we went back twice more and the staff are very nice,... read more

We wouldn't mind saying that the food was spicy and delicious at the same time. The non-vegetarian spread as well as the veg spread was sumptuous.

The way of business of this restaurant reminded me that in city. Upon indicating regular price of the set meal such as SCR700, they showed the discount price of SCR350. It was good to prepare 8 types of set meal but volume of set meal did not meet its price... Taste was soso but I felt a bit salty. Compared... More

We got a splendid service and information about the food because we were a little skeptical due to a bad experience with indian food some years ago in London. We ended up with a good well cooked meal not to spicy and to a resonable price

I used to go to Mahek on average once a week, mostly for takeaway. However in the last year changes to the menu and management seem to have resulted in less enjoyable food. The food had become far too creamy/heavy, the flavours of some of the new dishes weren't to my taste, and the number of fish dishes reduced. I... More

My husband and I were staying at Savoy and there is a small discount to dine here. We saw the special for the non vegetarian meal and decided to go with that and split an appetizer. Portions were on the smaller side (even for an individual meal) and they messed up the garlic naan. They were quick to correct the... More

I don't normally eat Indian food outside of India but Mahek really brought on a hint of nostalgia. The rotis are extremely soft and crisp on the outside and the Octopus Curry was a revelation.
