“Great tasty food”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

We had the seafood biriyani and the chilli lamb masala with a plain naan bread and popadoms and it was delicious. The biriyani was sealed with what looked like a paratha and when we opened it up it was so moist, flavoursome and tasty. Would definitely go back.

“Flavourful Indian food”
Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

We really liked this place. Went on an invite so cannot comment on the prices but the food is very good and the service surprisingly quick. The dishes aren't exactly innovative as promised but the food is fresh fragrant and flavourful. I would go there again. Not sure why there are so many negative reviews on time out...possibly from non-Indians?

“Wow!!!!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Excellent food, charmingly attentive staff and elegant surroundings make this quite a rich experience. We were entertaining a couple of friends from Switzerland and the US and were a bit apprehensive at first. But, the staff helped us decide what to order, calibrated the spice levels perfectly, brought out the food piping hot, and quietly and deftly waited on us. The Chef cooked every dish differently and the spicing and tastes were finely nuanced. We ordered the seafood set menu. The lobster, the shrimp and the curries were excellent leaving little room for the dessert to impress, but impress it did. Don't miss it!!!

“Excellent Indian meal with wonderful staff”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

The staff went out of their way to make us comfortable and ensure we chose dishes we'd enjoy! The food was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. The service was attentive but not pushy, nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We will definitely be going again on our next visit to Dubai

This was our first time in mahec and well recommended by one of my friends!

i loved the goan prawn curry and my husband tried the chilli lamb masala which was too spicy for me but he loved it.
must try those pistachio kulfis.
The service was splendid.

We will be back soon next month! :)
