Description: Mehek on London Wall is a slick and sophisticated Indian restaurant, popular with city slickers and curry connoisseurs alike. Featured in the Top 100 Best in Britain Real Curry Restaurant Guide; Mehek's menu is based on real Indian food - with plenty of delicate spices and no artificial colourings. Head chef Ashok Kumar, formerly of the award-winning Tamarind restaurant, created the menus with none other than Atul Kochhar, one of Britain’s top Indian chefs and one of only two currently holding a coveted Michelin star. Beat that! We highly recommend the Ak-bari lamb shank - a deliciously flavoursome dish, with hints of cinnamon. Mehek, which means "fragrance" so the owner tells us, truly is a treat for your senses

The bar staff really make you feel welcome and relaxed...following the bar we headed to the table where the food served was excellent. All in all a very good evening.

A lot of friends told me about this place as one of the best Indian restaurants in town. I went there on Monday evening with my boyfriend and I was fairly disappointed. The interior design of this place is one of the saddest I've ever seen and the staff was quite creepy with us. The waiter was staring at us all the time and when we asked for the food and wine he was quite rude.
Food itself was not bad but not nothing to be remebered.

Superb service and good food, great value for money. Ate a Tikka Masala and was really satisfied I'll go there again for sure.

Fantastic evening, great meal - Tried an Indian Cheese starter as recommended by the Boss - Salim... Great choice!

We were both happy with our meal and the Chicken Tikka Dhansak with extra fresh green chillies was outstanding!

I went here on Weds evening with a group of friends after work, two of whom used to be regulars until they moved across town and who as a result knew the owner and most of the staff.

Service was first rate and it was all nicely presented and perfectly well cooked, but the beer wasn't cold and everything was rather bland.

King Prawn Puri was lovely but the number of prawns somewhat meage, Chicken Dansak nice enough but uninspiring, onion bhaji very small and tasteless, and all of the potato, okra, and mushroom bhajis were totally lacking in flavour.
With only one round of drinks it all worked out at circa £36 per head which was way too much for an ordinary experience.

I'd go back but not in a hurry.
