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.

We came to the Restaurant on Saturday night about 6.30pm and although it was busy we were able to get a table and be served quickly. We both had Lamb Madras which was first class. In the past I...

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.

Went there with friends excellent food and service, not a very big place, but one of the best meals we had. the service was good and even though there was some confusion over one of the choices, they recovered by giving us the 'wrong' one free

Have only ordered once but both the Chicken Korma and Chicken Tikka were very sweet and I didn't like either of them. The flavours were nice but I couldn't get over the fact that they tasted a bit like a dessert!

We decided to have a take away Sunday evening as a project we were working on took a little longer than expected. We ordered the Sunday special which was very tasty and good value for money. The restaurant is reasonably close to our house so we will use this restaurant again. A very pleasant surprise.

Thank GeoffNorfolk
