This was my third visit to Mehak in the last 2 months. I'll admit that dinner seemed a bit more expensive than the other options but it was delicious. The lunch buffet had a good assortment of veg and non-veg entrees. The chicken tandoori is not dried out like some. There is excellent carrot halwah for dessert. The service is average. The lunch buffet price is reasonable for the selection of food.

My colleague and I have to eat Indian at least one time each occasion we travel together...it's a rule. This time, we chose Mehak located on an academically inspired gentrified block near the Cornell campus. The retro exterior gave a positive first impression. The interior was nicely done and comfortable. The server was very prompt in getting to us and we were able to place our order quickly. I had Mulligatawny soup to start, which was very nicely done. We got a couple of appetizers to share including a very tasty Samosa Chaat which I would highly recommend. For mains, we got the Chili Chicken and the Chicken Biryani. The Chili Chicken in particular was outstanding. We had roti and garlic naan as accompaniments. The service was very good throughout our meal and the prices were quite reasonable. If you like Indian, this is a worthwhile place to try.

Mehak is definitely my favorite Indian in Ithaca. I especially love their shahi navratan korma and their lamb biryani. Be aware that things usually come on the spicier side, so order down a level if you don't like spice. Sangam next door is good too, but I somehow always come away having stomach issues (which I've never had before with Indian- I eat Indian about once a week) so I've stopped eating there.
