This Indian is so good, I would order the dishes a la cart and be perfectly satisfied. The vindaloo, the korma, the tandoori all perfectly cooked which is difficult in such large, banquet quantities. The fresh naan is always warm and out of the oven. Highly recommend.

This was our second visit in a month. The restaurant is unpretentious, simply decorated, neat and clean. We were greeted by the owner, Annil, who was very friendly and chatted with us for a while. On the first visit they were not very busy and Annil had time to explain some of the dishes to us. My husband and I... More

People who like ethnic food usually love Indian cuisine because of its mix of different tastes, like mint, tamarind, tandori, curry, etc. They are so exotic compared to the ordinary fast lunch fare. The issue is that many Indian restaurants overdue the flavors so they are too intense and too spicy hot. Not the case at Mahan's where the spices... More

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
