We been to this curry house before and it was nice. This time all our meals were average. My bririani was very poor. Big chunks of all sorts of meat looked like leftovers. Rice cold.Most of the meats not even warm and tough. My friends had slighty better meals although still well below what we expect of a good curry.... More

Another superb meal - no complaints! Everyone on our table enjoyed their food. We never have a bad word to say about mahaan. I would recommend the dhansak and my OH would recommend the tikka masala. The only thing that made it 4 rather than 5 was the wait for the food. It aaa a very busy Saturday night and... More

Great food from an extensive menu in this Bangladeshi restaurant. If you can't finish the generous portions they will make up the remainder as a take-away if you wish. A thriving gem well worth a repeat visit.

I rang for a table for five at 11 pm and got an excellent service. The food was good as was the table service. Unfortunately we were close to a rowdy group of 12 drunken men but the restaurant did everything they could to keep them quiet. Food was excellent and plentiful. It wasn't cheap but we were grateful.

Felt very rushed by the staff who were quite abrupt. The food was still very good but the overall experience not as it once was. Shame but probably wont go back fir a while.

Visited on a Monday night so was good to see it reasonably busy and heard the phone going quite a bit for takeaways (it was the night before valentines so that might have been some of it, but we walked past others that were quite). Nice cheery welcome when we came in and were seated, food and drinks arrived promptly.... More

After various recommendations, we tried the Mahaan Special Curry. We checked with the waiter whether this dish was madras hot, as it showed med. on the menu. We were assured it could be madras hot. In fact it was almost mild, when the Manager asked if the food as ok, we pointed out that the curry was not madras hot,... More

I have been coming here for years and in all the time I have been a customer, I have never had a bad meal, never had bad service and never found it to be anything other than reasonable. I always recommend the Mahaan to friends, relatives and work colleagues. You have to go a long way to find another Indian... More

Been frequenting this establishment for many years, normally a solid curry. Visited in a group of 8 recently. Had a table booked and arrived on time, but had to wait 30mins for it to be ready, and where made to feel like we where in the way while waiting. Took a fairly long time to take the food and drinks... More
