Sucks! – We had this terrible experience in Mehfil today.I am an Indian food blogger and has reviewed many restaurants in Redmond-Bellevue area.4 of us went for dinner on saturday evening and ordered a Biriyani and tikka masala and some rotis..I was aghast to find out that the portion they served was about half of what they used to serve before..A very teeny tiny kadai of tikka masala and about 2 ladles of biriyani which is just enough for one person.We called up the person who looked like the manager and told them our concern and instead of acknowledging it he was trying to prove that the portions were same as like before.Afterwards as we had no option we ordered an extra chicken vindaloo and rotis for take out.To our utter dismay,the vindaloo was just chicken in some Chilli powder solution,deep red and tasting like plain chilli water..We had to throw out the entire thing out in fear of upset tummies.

THIS PLACE REALLY SUCKS!! service wise,taste wise and portion wise..Please do avoid this place,there are some great indian places out there in Bellevue if you are looking for one..!

Our portion sizes have not changed since the day we opened. 4 adults sharing 2 entrees. No wonder you felt the portion sizes were small.

Buyer Beware! – As noted in the other reviews we should have taken our cues from the lack of customers. The service was terrible, seems only one of the two waiters showed up. The food was mediocre at best, I had the peanut coconut curry with prawns. When the bill came, I pulled out my Living Social voucher to present to the waiter and could tell this was going south when I saw the expression on his face. He then proceeded to tell me that the voucher was not valid for the "Happy Hour" menu. Huh? That little tid--bit seems to have been left off the voucher fine print. But he did go on to explain that we could use the voucher on our next visit (I don't think so). So I suggested just charging us the 6pm and after prices, seemed rather easy (should have seen this one coming), the bill increases by almost 40%. So if you are looking for expensive mediocre dining, this place is for you.

Groupon n happy hour menu state that it cannot be combined with other offers. I understand your frustration since these are in fine print.

Be reasonable. The math below shows what % of the regular menu price we receive if both promotions are used.

Happy hour pricing is 40 to 50 % off the menu price. Say we receive 55%

Groupon is 50% off. hence 55 / 2 is 27.5% of menu price

Groupon Fee is 50% of the money you paid to buy it. hence we receive 14% of menu price. food cost > 14%

Mediocre Food and Poor Service – To call this "fine Indian" dining is a stretch. If you want fine Indian dining you should go to Saffron Grill (the best ever), but not this place.

We arrived at 5:30pm on Saturday night to an empty restaurant. We planned to use our Groupon that he purchased some time ago. We order pakoras, butter chicken, chicken tikka masala and lamb curry.

The crispy pakoras were quite tasty, but some of them were not not fried well enough and soggy. Unfortunately the butter chicken and chicken tikka masala were nearly indistinguishable from each other and both tasted like they were make with a can of Campbell's Tomato Soup. The lamb curry was ok and the rice pudding my husband reports was acceptable.

When we tried to use our Groupon we were told that it was "happy hour" and we couldn't use our Groupon. This confused us as there was nothing posted indicating it was happy hour and the menu certainly did not say "Happy Hour" or anything of the sort. I pointed out to the waiter that there were no limitations on the Groupon and asked him to honor the Groupon. He said he had to call his boss and went to make a phone call. He returned and told us that we could not use the Groupon. I told him this was unacceptable and he went to make another phone call. When he returned he handed us another menu and said he could ring up our dinner at higher rates and then allow us to use the Groupon.

At this point I explained that I was a very dissatisfied customer. I explained that I felt this was poor service and the asked him again to honor the Groupon as there was no limitation on the Groupon and no "happy hour" posted. The waiter returned with another waiter who looked totally freaked out and refused to assist us.

At that point we just paid the bill and left. There are too many fabulous Indian Restaurants (Saffron Grill) that have great customer service to even consider returning to Mehfil.

Awesome Indian – I have tried Indian restaurants all over the Seattle area (Seattle, Eastside, Everett, etc) and this is easily one of the best I have ever had. The daily buffet is a great, inexpensive lunch option and the tandori chicken, butter chicken, and naan are all to die for. The negative reviews must be from people who have no idea what good indian food should taste like.

Worst restaurant on earth – This restaurant is probably the worst restaurant on earth. Terrible stale food along with arrogant snobbish owners. I can't put in words how bad our experience and the food was. I think some of the slightly favorable reviews below were written by the owners themselves. I would have liked to do the owners a favor and give them more business by asking you guys to try out the restaurant and judge for yourselves how bad this place is; but I care about the readers. So don't visit this restaurant; not even in your dream (inception)

great place for Indian food – I was spending a night at the Redmond Marriott and walked a couple hundred yards or so to get to the restaurant. The restaurant includes "the usual" dishes plus some dishes fairly unique to Indian restaurants - I had chicken with a coconut-peanut sauce. The real treat was the following day when, after checking out of the hotel, I went back to the restaurant to sample the lunch buffet. It was fantastic, one of the best I've ever had at an Indian restaurant and - believe me - I've tried a lot of them. There were a wide number of both vegetarian and meat dishes - even three deserts. Everything I sampled was delicious. I liked it so much that I just got a weekend night for the Marriott next week. You can be sure that I will be visiting this restaurant again - hope it stays in the program!

The best Indo-chinese restaurants in Seattle – They have huge selection of North Indian and Indo-chinese food. The Food is really tasty. I had food catered couple of times from them and food was warm, fresh and tasty.

kid-friendly, neighborhood gem – "This is the only Indian restaurant I have been to that has a kid's menu. They are extremely kid-friendly. Really good chicken tikki masala. We ordered the non-veg appetizer plate and the chicken was fabulous - wonderful spices, but not spicy. We look forward to going again and trying something from their indo chinese menu."

rude service – I took a few visiting business guests and regret the decision. The food is not great, the bread was rather chewy & seemed as if it had been sitting out for a while. The rudeness of the service was worrisome. They got our order wrong and insisted they had it right. They said the bread is supposed to be served the way it was served. And I told them I was born yesterday.

The place was so empty at a rather busy time... should have taken the cue from that.
