Description: For the authentic Indian Tandoori experience, Mehak is the place to go in DC. Our menu is filled with North-Indian curries, kababs, biryanis, tikkas, vindaloo and roganjosh, so there's always something for everyone. Our baked breads are unlike anything you've had before, cooked using an original char-broiler tandoor.

The service was attentive and the atmosphere was nice with very enjoyable music. The food did however take quite awhile to arrive even though it was not busy. Most importantly, I can't believe how plain tasting the food was. Everything was so incredibly bland. We ordered a couple lunch specials, which each come with a variety of items depending on what you order. Though the eggplant was decent, everything else was an incredible disappointment. This was a total waste of money and time.

we only ordered 4 appetizers to share and it all came half warm like it was heated up in a microwave. naan was the only delicious thing. it took over 20 min for appetizers to come. it's also overpriced but it's in downtown DC so it comes with the territory...

No draft beer. Ordinary Indian food.

Onion salad very spicy, even for a five alarm taste.

Visited on August 10 and had Chicken Thika Masala, Mango Lassi, rice and Garlic Nan. The food was tasteful. The amount of Chicken served for the price was not acceptable. It definitely not enough to serve one individual. The service was very lousy -- after taking the initial order and delivering the food, the waiter/waitress never bothered to ask if the food is OK or whether I need anything more or can I get your water, etc. I actually wanted more water --- finally given up. I even had to flag them down to get my bill.

So if you are contect to accept poor service and high price, it may be OK place to eat.
