Having had a good experience once returned with friends and family but was highly disappointed. The service quality has gone down, the food is just about okay and when compared vis-a-vis the price it is sure to cause heartburn. Firstly we (7 of us) had to wait and then respond to waving our hands to get the attention of someone... More

I wanted to write a review about this long time back. I've been to many Machaans,everything is fine. But just wanted to mention that the design of the spoons and forks are very awkward. Please change it immediately. Very difficult to hold them while eating.

I visited the place with my wife last Sunday and we were really impressed. The jungle atmosphere was as expected, interesting; but the food was really awesome too. We were half full, so we ordered only Basamati Rice and Raan with Chicken Shorba and Jaljeera. The Raan was just awesome! Shorba and Jaljeera was also good. The time to prepare... More

We had food here with our family. We had come in earlier on and spoken to the team and they ensured that all services were in order and everything was smoothly executed, They also ensured that one of my uncle who is a strict vegetarian had food made especially for his palate.

I had already had ths pleasure of dining at Machan at the Avani Riverside Mall & here i was again to dine with my family. We chose Machan over Flame & Grill because of the unique new concept designed in the form of jungle. The decor is quite marvellous and lighting is also done accordingly tough some would find there...

Machan is located in the Mani Square mall and is undoubtedly a "Must Visit" restaurant. The entire decor is that of a Jungle theme with some dummy animals thrown in for good measure. Prices are in line with any fine dining outlet and the starters plus entrees are all very tasty and scrumptuous.
