in Seychelles, there are only two Indian Restaurant, and until recently Mahek, at Coral Coral Strand Hotel was the only one. I happened to like curry, and I do visit Mahek quite often when I am in Seychelles, they also do take-away. The food is very good and the service is brilliant, I would highly recommend it.

As the title says, I rate this an average Indian Restaurant. The reason for this rating is as follows: we love eating butter chicken so when we try a new restaurant we use our experience of eating this meal in many restaurants, as a guide. My wife makes a delicious butter chicken with cashew nuts and cream. The Mahek meal... More

I walked by this place one morning and smelled delicious curry wafting onto the beach at 10am and the food was even better than the smells! We visited Mahek on what appeared to be a pretty busy night and the service was a little slow but the octopus curry was worth the wait!

I had the great pleasure discovering the delicious Indian atmosphere and meals in that restaurant, located in the Coral Strand Hotel. However, two of the meals deceived me and needs some revision : the dhall Mahek and the cheese naan. For the cheese naan, a creamy cheese such as La Vache Qui Rit or Teama would be more welcoming than... More

After a few disappointing meals on Mahé I was very pleased when we discovered Mahek Indian restaurant. The food was delicious and there was a nice selection of curries that I had not tried before. On our two trips to Mahek during our time on Mahé we tried the achari paneer tikka (barbecued cottage cheese in homemade pickle), palak paneer... More

Not sure about this one. =/ The Opening Hours says it opens at 7pm....got there at 7.15pm and it was closed! We went to double check with the security guard at the Coral Strand Hotel, so he went in through a side door and sure enough, waiting staff were inside but hadn't opened the restaurant yet. But we thought okaaay,... More

After all the great reviews we went to Mahek with great expectations. We ordered two different dishes (one with chicken, another with prawn), but got served the same sauce. This sauce was not bad, but not spicy at all. We ordered some additional chilli twice, but did not receive any. We left very disappointed.
