I went to Mahe for lunch and shared a series of appetizers plus a main dish. Everything was amazing! We had coconut shrimp (the best ever!!), asparagus fries, and the mahi mahi fish sandwich. I will be back for sure! Great service too.

Mahe seems to be more of a hangout for 20-30 somethings overall. The sushi isnt what you will get from a smaller, well revered sushi place. Pass on this if you want real sushi in a your typical "sushi" place.

We sat on the patio. The bar was very busy and very loud. It was a chilly evening but the space heaters made the patio very comfortable. Service was good. The waiter was able to help us make our selections. We started with a selection...More
