Food always top notch, tasty with ample portions. Staff friendly and attentive. The 4 course weekday special is excellent value. Faultless. Well worth searching out.

Been using Mahmaan for a good few years now for both sit in and takeaway. Doesn't matter which one you choose always excellent food and service. Been today for the Sunday special, wonderful flavours and more than we could eat. Highly recommended.
