Most of the food is of a good quality, some dishes we can not recommend, e.g. the shrimps. As it may take some time till your meal is served you should not be in a hurry. But this is quite difficult as the atmosphere / decoration / played music is not very inspiring. When there is an event in the... More

Food is really great, service is slow but worth the wait. I eat there almost every day of my stay in Seychelles.

We went there twice because it was so good. Since we flew in from Mumbai we never thought, this could meet our now high expectations of Indian food (we were lovers of this cuisine already before India but after, well <3). You definitely have to try the different naans, for us the best were the one filled with potatoes and... 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.

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

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,... 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
