I've been a regular diner at Indian Mahal since its' opening. Not sure about other reviews "change of ownership" as Khatri has been, and still is the owner/chef/operator. I can only conclude that his absence due to trips back to Nepal can explain this. However, I can understand the comment "to much salt", having eaten here many times I have experienced this problem on one occasion, and to tell the truth it was difficult to eat. Enquiries at the time revealed that Khatri was in fact overseas and a different cook was on, I might add that this instance was an isolated case and occured a couple of years ago.
Regardless of the above I can thoroughly recommend this restaurant, again as others have reviewed, the portions are of a good size, with flavours subtle if that's the way you like it, or more confronting (hot) if that's your medicine. The menu is a mix of Indian and Nepalese, it's interesting to experience the difference and subtlety of flavours between both sides of this menu.
Two points of recommendation, try the Sunday Lunch - always fun, especially if Khatri decides to sing and the Seafood Platter is great.
PS. my 18 month old grandaughter loves the food, don't suppose the fact that her name is Indi has anything to do with it??
