“Good food but...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013 via mobile

Had three meals here in last decade and all been good, but this time felt let down by our waiter and price of soft drinks.

So lucky to get a table as two large reservations had taken the bulk of empty tables we were seated in the furthest dark corner, possibly due to v casual dress of my colleague.

Two pop's and pickles arrived immediately, a little presumtuous I thought, but we probably would have ordered them. (They did turn out to be free)

As we'd eaten at lunchtime we weren't in for a big meal, and there was some "dissappointment" evident when we only ordered a main each + sundry.

Small Kingfisher (3.85) and a coke ordered. A pint of coke (3.80!) arrived without consultation. I'd say a half pint would be the norm unless asked otherwise.

Mains arrived fairly quickly and we were 2/3rds through the pop's. Again, no consultation before they and the pickle tray were taken away.

If I hadn't of had a big lunch I'd have been telling him to put them back down! But the point is, like the size of the coke, he should have asked.

Now as it turned out, the pop's weren't on the bill. All in with a tip it was £40.

Lamb bhuna was very nice and would have again.

“Perfectly hot and spicey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

Mehek was quite close to the hotel my wife and i were staying at so we figured why not try it. We arr so happy we did. My wife has an indian background and can be picky when it comes to indian restaurants but she loved Mehek. The food had a lot of flavour and some real heat. The staff werd very responsive and friendly. Make sure to try the garlic naan and safron rice with your entree.

I love this restaurant. They do the best Malai Chops. Everything is cooked freshly. The staff are always very helpful and personable. The food is always excellent. Highly recommended.

“Authentic Indian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

This is yet another Indian restaurant in London offering very good food. The menu was varied and the service was efficient. A little more pricey though compared to some other great Indian restaurants in East London that are located further away from the business district.
