Mahan Indian Restaurant – www.mahanrestaurant.com
Mahan meaning “great” in Indian, accurately portrays its grand array of Indian cuisine. Family-owned for 14 years and located in the downtown area of Alhambra. For starters, try their refreshing Cucumber Salad mixed with tomatoes, cilantro, and lemon squeezed juice. Try the Garlic Naan bread or the Chicken Naan, which is Naan stuffed with chicken slices. They also have Tandoori Chicken, marinated in yogurt, garlic, ginger, and is cooked in tandoor. Looking for a vegetarian dish, look no further than the Pumpkin Curry or the Aloo Gobi (cauliflower, potatoes cooked in mildly spiced gravy). The Chicken Tikka Masala is also a crowd pleaser with its boneless Tandoori chicken cooked in mild tomato yogurt sauce and Biryani (Basmati rice), either assorted vegetables or shrimp. Accompany your meal with either a Mango Lassi or a Taj Mahal Beer. Open from 11am-10pm daily, lunch buffet 11am-3pm Tues-Sat, Sun “Champagne Brunch” 11am-3pm. •
