After some time waiter came with my bottle of water, without saying anything he just dropped it to table and left - did not even open the bottle. It took over... read more

Throughout our trip we never found a place with better service. The food was delicious and authentic, and it was lovely to be in a restaurant with A/C !!!

Biggest disappointment ever!!!! Been enjoying their traditional Indian cuisine for a few years. Always sat outside...even in windy or lite rain conditions. When we arrived we asked to sit outside as usual but the NEW RUSSIAN LADY said she doesn't recommend it due to the slight onshore wind. I reminded her that we are ok with that and that we... More

The food here was quite good. As an Indian, going to an Indian place when on a holiday is very very rare (and only when we are out of choice). Restaurants typically make the food extra oily and very spicy. Mahek had a great balance of flavours and the food wasn't very heavy. The service was a little on the... More

We ordered quite a few items each time off the menu and were blown away with how good the food was...and the service,... More

The cook could have been a bit more generous when dishing though as the prawn breyani only had one prawn and the lamb breyani similarly was made up of mainly rice.The... More

Mahek serves a wide variety of Asian foods, mostly Indian. Good service with a reasonable price. Located on the beach so good views as well!

Great indian food and views of the beach. We went there around 1:50pm and the restaurant was still willing to take us even with closing at 2pm. Delicious passion fruit smoothie! Spinach chicken was great, as well as Dal. Glad we went!
