I have frequented Mahabharat 20+ times and I have never had a bad experience. The curries are always beautiful and well spiced. The staff are attentive and they remember you and offer a nice personal service. Really great Indian restaraunt, superb looking, modern interior also. Excellent.

We recommended The Mahabharata to friends and really happy we did. We were all made very welcome and had a really tasty meal with superb service. The curry is cooked beautifully not just smothered in spice and the whole experience was really enjoyable.
