“Overpriced, Mediocre Food”
Reviewed 24 August 2011

We visited Mezbaan shortly after moving to the area and found it to be only ok.

The prices were very high. Our server asked us how spicy we would like our food, and we said mild/medium. When it arrived, it was so spicy we could barley eat it. I think it would have been good if it wasn't so spicy, but our mouths were burning so much we couldn't taste the food.

Our server seemed to mumble his questions and speak quietly, which made understanding his heavy accent difficult.

The atmosphere was terrible, in my opinion. It was "dressed up" to look upscale, but they had TV's blasting Indian music videos, making conversation difficult. It was also quite empty when we were there, which I didnt like.

We will not be going back anytime soon.
