The owner shakes your hand which I appreciate. I didn't order off menu, but had food bar which every thing was hot and delicious. Resaturant was clean and neat on inside. Had no funky odors! I would diffently go back.

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. The interior was little change from its... More

I really like the food here that I have had, and am not really a big Indian food eater, so I hesitate to say too much. But again, I have enjoyed the food. But I don't like the location, and the building (inside and out) needs a big face lift. If you like Indian food, you will probably be alright,... More

The owners are very friendly and greet you with a smile and a handshake. The food is great. We tried multiple dishes since there were five of us. We tried vegetarian appetizers, chicken, lamb and goat entrees. The goat and spinach dish was great (I was nervous about goat, not having ever eaten it, but it was delicious!). The prices... More

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...

Good food, great service. They are super nice and helpful in trying to figure out what you might like if you're a first-timer. Yummy bread!

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

I am from out of town but visit Chattanooga several times a year. A lot of the restaurant traffic seems to be in the downtown area, naturally. But if you take fifteen minutes to drive out Brainerd Rd towards the airport or take 24 E to Moore Rd and turn R on Brainerd, you will find a small, low, unassuming... More
