The service is good, my niece seemed hesitant about how spicy she wanted her food. The boss came out and suggested a different item that she could eat at the authentic level of spiciness without toning down an authentic spicy dish .

I enjoyed the masala and saag paneer, and they had veggie samosas, but I thought other buffets I've been to offered a little more in terms of choices. Their tandoori didn't look like it though. This place is the only Indian restaurant in town, while if you go to Pasadena, there's much more competition. Decent buffet, would come here again... More

Delicious Chicken Tikka Masala, Chicken Pakoras, Chicken Lentil Soup, Plain Naan, and Pistachio Khulfi Ice Cream. Friendly & efficient service by Tushar (sp?) and his parents. Pleasant décor and ambience. The location in downtime Alhambra is convenient, though parking on a Friday night can be a bit of a challenge. Namaste!

In the San Gabriel Valley we are fortunate to have a plethora of Indian restaurants. If you like this kind of food you will have noticed how similar the menus and tastes are. This is where Mahan stands out. They had a Dal (yellow lentils) dish that separates itself from the standard Dal. The owner let us know it is... More

Pricey (in my eyes) for what you get for dinner. The buffet looks like a better deal. Solid Indian fare with a charming owner (a bit of a salesman but who can really fault that?).

I have read some of the other reviews and it seems most people come here for lunch. I made the mistake of coming for dinner. For dinner, the ambiance was so bad. We sat down at a table and noticed a large CLOSED sign in the view of our window. This was the back of their OPEN sign. A little... More

I have been in this restaurant many times. The food is very tasty and reasonable. The costumer service is very nice and you get a personal treatment from the actual owners. I recommen shrimp curry. I will be back! Michael Dergar

The San Gabriel Valley is graced with a potpourri of delectable ethnic eateries. While Indian restaurants are scarce in this region, Mahan Restaurant more than makes up for it with a tasteful and healthful array of dishes at very reasonable prices. A wonderful family owns and operates it.Try the lunch buffet and you'll be hooked! Mmm-mmm! the spices, samosas, naan... More
