India Mahal 5970 Brainerd Rd Probably because I had just prepared an Indian meal, Mrs. Mynkint suggested we give Mahal a try. Sitting forlornly on a barren patch of asphalt on a corner lot, the bright yellow building looked like a deserted gas station. It had obviously been reincarnated from a Mexican establishment.

My husband and I have been eating here for years. We live in Atlanta and only get to come once or twice a year. I love Indian food and have labored long to find a comparable place in Atlanta -- no dice! The owner is very friendly and always remembers us even though we aren't there very often. Our favorites...

To start the service was the absolute best I have ever had. They treate you as if you are a guest in there home. The food was aesome an explosion of flavors in every bite nothing dull or bland here. I plan on dinning there a whole lot more
