We were looking for a lunch spot off the Cornell campus and visited the "collegetown" area, where there were a bunch of eateries, most of them ethnic. We chose Mehak - an Indian buffet-style restaurant. It's oddly two doors down from another Indian restaurant -...More

Just about all of the South Asian style restaurants in Ithaca, NY are really, really good; but there will be a favorite among them. Mehak is mine. It's buffet-style serving for lunch but the food selection has delicious zing - but not too much! Add...More

This Indian restaurant in Collegetown is popular for good reason - it's the real deal, with good prices and good service. The buffet is wonderful, with great standard dishes and some unique ones, in a very pleasant easy atmosphere, in a great Collegetown location. I...More

The biryani, the mulligatawny, and every other item, excellent. The nann is the best I have ever had. Nice Buffett, with new or different items every time I go. We enjoy going for dinner and ordering from the menu, as they have excellent lamb and...More

With the restaurants all occupied we were keen to have a good lunch which we did. A good buffet for 10.95 I think and we were all very satisfied with the variety, speed and the price.

I had lunch with a friend there last week, and the buffet offered a wider range of dishes than I've found with other Indian buffets in Ithaca. (There were also three kinds of halvah, so that may have had a positive influence on my review--I...More

Excellent, attentive service. That usually convinces me to at least check out a restaurant, but the food at Mehak closed the deal. The vegetable combination platter appetizer was a great start, while we waited for the rest of our group to show. While all the...More
