After reading the reviews on this restaurant, my wife and I decided to head over to the Mirch Masala restaurant, across the street. When I got there, I looked over and saw Mehfil, and by that time had forgotten the reviews that I had read here. But I saw the 'Buffet' sign, which was what I was looking for, so over to Mehfil we went.
Well, I have to say that most of the reviews here are pretty much about where I also sit. I didn't find anything outstanding about Mehfil, but I think we'll probably go back some time. The buffet selection is very limited, but the food was okay.
Unlike a previous reviewer's comment, my wife and I were at one of only two tables that had goras sitting at them. Everyone else there appeared to be of Indian descent; and the food wasn't really 'westernized' at all. But to repeat, there is far better Indian fare to be had, and I am looking forward to following through with Mirch Masala some time soon.
Yes, we will go back. My wife would actually rate this restaurant much higher than I did; she thinks the food there is 'excellent', but I have to disagree with her on that point.
The service was not outstanding, but our waitress was friendly.
Keep in mind that it is a buffet, so the service is pretty typical for what it is.
Cheap, fairly good, and it fills the hole. But it isn't fine dining.
Worth a visit, if you're hungry, in a hurry, and not too fussy.
