My husband and I went here on a Thursday night. The waiters were all Indian and very kind and helpful! The food was unbelievable! Great spices and flavors in everything. And they have a great wine/cocktail selection.

It is rather amazing that these old school restaurants where neither the decor nor the menu seemed to ever change continue to continue, but this exemplar of that model is open Sun. night, and we wanted neighborhood Indian, so we gave it a whirl. Hugely...More

My husband and I visited this restaurant late on a weeknight, so with few tables, the service was good. We ordered off the menu which had plenty of options, and our food was fine--nothing exceptional. I was surprised, though, at the prices since the food...More

Friendly greeting upon our arrival. Food flavor & service was fine/average. The Naurattan Korma portion was generous however it was made with a bag/box of frozen mixed vegetables (including square carrots) for $14 and for that I say Mehak should be embarrassed. Naan okay but...More

For the authentic Indian Tandoori experience, Mehak is the place to go in DC. Our menu is filled with North-Indian curries, kababs, biryanis, tikkas, vindaloo and roganjosh, so there's always something for everyone. Our baked breads are unlike anything you've had before, cooked using an original char-broiler tandoor.
