Really good and best of all - non greasy. Often can feel unwell the day after an Indian. In this case, digestion all in good working order the next day.

A friend and I met for a mid week meal at Mahan and happened to be the only customers that night so the service was excellent. We shared some samosas and the tandoori Ghobi which had good flavours, but the Ghobi was a little dry. We asked the waiter to recommend a vegetarian main which we really enjoyed along with... More

Under past owners we would travel across Melbourne to go here, my in-laws are Indian and they said it was the most authentic Indian they ate. Sadly with new owners that changed, quality decreased, more watery curries, not the thick gravy in the past. Try somewhere else.

Girl told us 20 minutes, so popped out returned in exactly 20 minutes, just as food arrived. Perfect timing. We split the meal between... More

The restaurant is a lovely quiet one serving traditional Indian food. It was lovely that you arrive and were offered complimentary Pappadams and sauces. The meat samosa entrees had a nice spicy bite and the rice was nice and cooked to perfection. The chicken in the main course was not a large serving but the chicken was very tender. The... More

This is the worst Indian food I have ever had. There was glace cherries in the Korma style vegetables, I kid you not Glace Cherries! The Kashmiri Nan also had a weird red stuffing which indicated to us it was also made from the same offending cherries. My husband is from London where they have some of the best Indian... More

We have been regulars at this restaurant for many years. It has just had new owners. Unfortunatly the new owners the do not seem to have the same commitment as Prasannan and his family who have run this restaurant for the last 13 years. Whilst the food was OK I found the service lacking. The waiter was dressed in a... More

I have visited this restaurant with my wife twice in the last week. Both occasions were on weeknights and the restaurant was empty apart from one other group on each occasion. We found the staff to be polite, friendly and attentive. The starters were good portions and very tasty whilst the various main dishes that we tried could not be... More
