?Tantalize the taste buds? – Not only was the customer service excellent but the food was fabulous...We had the lamb tikka masala and the chicken tikka...a bit of spice but not too much...the meat was tender,the sauces were sweet and savory...It was my husband's Birthday so they came out with a dessert of mango ice cream and carrot cake..I thought I didn't have any more room but one taste of the ice cream and miraculously I was hungry...to mix the ice cream with the sponge cake gave it a swirl of flavors...It cooled our palate from the dinner...We are going back...one of the best Indian restaurants in the Seattle area...
?This was really good!? – We stopped here for dinner after a very long day of driving. We were tired and hungry and just wanted some decent food. We both enjoy East Indian food and thought we would try this restaurant.
There was only one other table filled in the restaurant, but it was early......about 5:30. By the time we left 3 other tables had come in.
There were 2 of us and we ordered a side order of rice, one meat dish, one vegetable dish and 2 naan breads. You could pick the level of heat/spice in the dishes (1 to 5) so we chose a 3.
I love hot food and this was great! The flavours were amazing and the service was great. I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to anyone who like East Indian food. Even if you don't, I would still say it is worth a try. If this were at home, it would become a regular dinner spot.
Great food - nice ambience – We recently visited seattle and statyed at the mariott near mehfil. I really loved the buffet there - great variety and authentic taste - don't forget the free mango lassi. We were so impressed with the buffet that we decided to go for dinner the next day and we were not disappointed. My wife and kids loved the food.
we ordered a number of items - Lamb biryani, veg. fried rice, paneer tikka wraps, Chilly fish. I was a bit concerned to order fish at an indian restaraunt but chilly fish was the highlight - great taste. I wish there was a restaraunt like this in denver where i live. I've ordered biryani at a lot of indian places but mostly it is glorified fried rice with some lamb/chicken pieces added to it but the biryani at mehfil was very authentic.
I highly recommend this place and we will definitely revisit mehfil the next time we are in seattle.
Thank you for your nice comments.
I totally think this place is not what it is made out to be – If you are reading the last review underneath mine, I agree with everything he says.. I do not recommend this place, because the food is not good.. I did not have a good time here, and 2 words for the owner CUSTOMER SERVICE , how hard is that ?
Avoid Mehfil – Today I had a disappointing experience at Mehfil's Indian restaurant in Redmond Town Center.
Today my wife and I thought we'd try Mehfil's in Redmond Town Center. The time as about 2:15 PM. We went to Mehfil's and asked if the buffet was still running and the hostess cheerfully stated "yes it is running". I should have taken a look at the buffet, but given that I had asked, I assumed all would be OK. When we went to get our food, it was painfully obvious that we were staring at leftover food that had been sitting. We figured we'd make the best of it given that we were not too terribly hungry. I noticed that the salad bowl was pretty empty and I asked for it to be refilled. The owner came over and stated "We do not refill the buffet after 2:30 PM!" I don't know what the exact time was, but I told him "Just moments ago, I asked if your buffet was still operational". His response, in a rather rude tone was, "Everyone knows that at an Indian restaurant, no new food is added to the buffet after 2:30 PM." I told him I did not know that and I think that we were mislead by the hostess who moments ago stated "The buffet is operational." His response - "Sorry!"
I must share some of the blame for today's events. We asked without looking at the buffet. We appeared to be the only folks in the restaurant - a clear sign that should have caught our attention. I left feeling poorly treated and vowing to never return. Not so much because of the buffet, more so because of the rude treatment received. It was clear that the owner did not care about the impression he made. He cheerfully handed us our bill for $18 and when I politely told him how disappointed we were his response was "There are always people who will have negative things to say." This guy is a dope!
With the abundant choices of quality Indian food in the Seattle/Redmond area - Mehfil is one to avoid!
Easily the Best in Puget Sound! – Mehfil has the best Indian food, hands down, in the Puget Sound area. I have rarely been to an Indian restaurant that uses fresher ingredients. Everything from the tenderness of the meat to the sweetness of the dessert displays the artistry of the chef. Must say I have only been to their buffet. However, from what I have seen, their dinner entrees must be made with even more attention. I rarely write reviews....this I had to. Enjoy!
The Best Indian Restaurant in WA State – I have perused through others? comments and disagreed to the negative tones regarding the restaurant?s foods. My experience with the restaurant?s foods, service, ambiance, and location are general excellent. I took my Real Estate Clients and Friends there to treat them to dinner/buffet, and they all agreed with me that this restaurant has excellent quality in foods and service. Did I mention I love their desserts? They are tastefully delicious!!!! Also, the ambiance is by far greater than many Indian restaurants out there. This is one of many reasons why I keep coming back to them. Additionally, the owner, Krishna, and the staff members are very gracious and helpful. Just keep up the good work, good quality foods, and service. You will be doing great, Mehfil!!!!!
Easily the worst indian place on the eastside – We went today to this place after a while since the new management came in (old name was Sahib cuisine). We ordered Indian chinese dishes. It was horrible - I would give it a rating of 2 or 3 out of 10. The schewzen noodles was glorified Maggi, you can cook better food at home in 2 minutes. Everything from soups, ragda patti to gobi manchurian and even the curries were really very bad. Avoid this place at any cost. Goto Bamboo Garden nearby for indian-chinese and every other Indian resturant in the Redmond area is many times better.
best place to dinein for dinner – after reading some good reviews about this place . i planed to treat my friends in mehfil for my birthday. as soon as we entered in to the restaurant. we saw some good ambiance and nice aroma from the kitchen . we asked to the waitress about the flavour , as she explained about the special dum biriyani. we desided to order. and it was wonderful and nicely decorated. and i can recommend the cheese bread , chicen chiili and chetinad chicken. .waitress is very active great service .we enjoyed will be back . see u soon
