Decent

Pricey (in my eyes) for what you get for dinner. The buffet looks like a better deal. Solid Indian fare with a charming owner (a bit of a salesman but who can really fault that?).

Delicious Chicken Tikka Masala, Chicken Pakoras, Chicken Lentil Soup, Plain Naan, and Pistachio Khulfi Ice Cream. Friendly & efficient service by Tushar (sp?) and his parents. Pleasant décor and ambience. The location in downtime Alhambra is convenient, though parking on a Friday night can be a bit of a challenge. Namaste!

In the San Gabriel Valley we are fortunate to have a plethora of Indian restaurants. If you like this kind of food you will have noticed how similar the menus and tastes are. This is where Mahan stands out. They had a Dal (yellow lentils) dish that separates itself from the standard Dal. The owner let us know it is... More

I have read some of the other reviews and it seems most people come here for lunch. I made the mistake of coming for dinner. For dinner, the ambiance was so bad. We sat down at a table and noticed a large CLOSED sign in the view of our window. This was the back of their OPEN sign. A little... More

I have been in this restaurant many times. The food is very tasty and reasonable. The costumer service is very nice and you get a personal treatment from the actual owners. I recommen shrimp curry. I will be back! Michael Dergar

The San Gabriel Valley is graced with a potpourri of delectable ethnic eateries. While Indian restaurants are scarce in this region, Mahan Restaurant more than makes up for it with a tasteful and healthful array of dishes at very reasonable prices. A wonderful family owns and operates it.Try the lunch buffet and you'll be hooked! Mmm-mmm! the spices, samosas, naan... More

Decent food, amateurish service, but it's got a family atmosphere, and that's the charm. Plus, not expensive, and they have the big beers in bottles. Worth doing.
