Description: Voted # one Indian restaraunt in Surrey newspaper reviews. This restaraunt is very casual and family oriented. My friend had recomended it and it was boy she was right. Like most good restaraunts, you must wait for a table. Its a short wait and it is more than worth the few minutes. If you like Indian food, this is the place to dine. Its a great place to take someone on a first or second date because its very quiet for such a busy place. We had several dish,s including the curried chicken, rice, spinich and a couple of spicy ones. The whole dinner for two was under forty dollars plus tip. I was very impressed with the speed which they delivered the delightful meal. The staff is going full speed but they are so nice. This restaraunt is all about the best food you will find within the Surrey area. :-)

“Worst Indian food ever”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

I had been to Mahek a couple of years ago and quite liked it, then my husband had a dish with poor quality chicken and we never went back. Today, we gave it another shot. The place was empty (maybe that should have been our first clue). This place has gone seriously downhill. The vegetable samosa was good, but the chickpeas that went with it were way too spicy. I ordered a Shahi Paneer and my husband ordered a Vegetable Korma. Both dishes had no flavour. Have you ever had Indian food with no flavour? I haven't.. until today. My husband actually reached for the salt. It was honestly terrible. They also kept giving us room temperature water, which I guess is fine - but it just shows this place isn't bothered with even some basic things, like nice refreshing ice cold water. I'm so mad at myself for giving this place another try. I read all the recent reviews of this place - honestly I think it's got to be friends of the folks who own the place, it's not possible that anyone would think the food was anything better than absolutely gross.

“THE BEST INDIAN CUISINE IN TOWN!”
Reviewed 10 April 2013

We come to dine or take out from Mahek very often! Especially when we are in town! The food is very well prepared and always up to excellent standards! Also the environment and atmosphere is very friendly and I would even say family oriented and we always feel so welcome! Best Butter Chicken and Garlic Naan we have tasted in Surrey!

Keep it up and open few more locations!!!
