Voted # one Indian restaraunt in Surrey newspaper reviews. This restaraunt is very casual and family oriented. My friend had recomended it and it was boy she was right. Like most good restaraunts, you must wait for a table. Its a short wait and it is more than worth the few minutes. If you like Indian food, this is the place to dine. Its a great place to take someone on a first or second date because its very quiet for such a busy place. We had several dish,s including the curried chicken, rice, spinich and a couple of spicy ones. The whole dinner for two was under forty dollars plus tip. I was very impressed with the speed which they delivered the delightful meal. The staff is going full speed but they are so nice. This restaraunt is all about the best food you will find within the Surrey area. :-)

Watch out for vindaloo!

Had the lamb vindaloo and it was so hot but oh so flavourful. Beads of sweat will pour from your forehead as you begin to enjoy. Also had the fish pakoras and they were amazing. Mango lassi to cool things down and a few samosas and I was in heaven. Great food and decent prices. Worth taking friends... read more

I've been eating at Mahek for almost 16 years. They started out as a all-you-can-eat buffet across the parking lot in the same strip mall. The food was to die for and still is! The butter chicken lunch special comes with 2 pieces of tandoori chicken as well and the nan is FANTASTIC! I've also tried the Lamb Vindaloo lunch... More

Took food to go. Aloo gobi was too spicy and other food was ok. I've been here before and it was much better. Butter chicken was good

I have been eating at Mahek for a number of years at the original location and at the new location in Panorama. I am forced to write a review based on my excellent experiences I've had here and also the somewhat biased negative reviews I've read on this place. I have always had a great experience at Mahek and this... More

I had been to Mahek a couple of years ago and quite liked it, then my husband had a dish with poor quality chicken and we never went back. Today, we gave it another shot. The place was empty (maybe that should have been our first clue). This place has gone seriously downhill. The vegetable samosa was good, but the... More

Also the environment and atmosphere is very friendly and I would even say family oriented and we always feel so welcome! Best Butter Chicken and Garlic Naan we have tasted in... More

I was fortunate to discover this restaurant very close to where I live! I have eaten there a few times and every time I always have a really good meal and the service is very good too! I highly recommend this restaurant to those who love Indian food!
