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

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?).

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.

For North Indian, this is the place to go. Never crowded, Mahan staff are always friendly and nice. The naan chef used to be at New Dehli Palace, back when that was a good place. The pumpkin curry is the most unique dish on the menu, and definitely very tasty.
