I've lived in the neighborhood for years without knowing about this gem of a restaurant. It's tucked away on Austin, just off Lefferts, near the post office. It's such a small place and gives the impression of being in someone's house. The food is excellent, served quickly, and spiced to perfection. I highly recommend.

The moment I walked into the place, the aromatics surrounded me. I love spice. The small but cozy restaurant was just right for a weeknight dinner. A tv with a Pakistani channel was on in the background and gave it a homey feel while the delivery guy bustled in and out several times indicating the neighborhood approved. I had the... More

This is the only Indian-Pak restaurant in the Kew Gardens and it is small, pricey, and overrated. The pricing on the menu is not what they currently charge so they need to stup up and correct their menus. Their food is okay but not worth the price even if its on Austin St.

My partner and I had planned to go to one of the buffets on Roosevelt Ave near 74th St in Queens on our way to see a film at the Kew Gardens Cinema. Our plan was thwarted by a lengthy subway delay but we figured we had just enough time for a quick bite in Mehak which is just around... More

The owner is a slightly moody but nice older guy. TV will be on Pakistani channel but it works in this small place where the food is delicious and reasonably priced. Good mix of spices and breads.

This place has been in the neighborhood for about 10 years that I can remember. It used to look really messy and I would take the food home rather than eat it at the store. Now they have completely renovated the place. It has a lot more seating and it has been decorated very nicely with a lot more seating.... More
