Indian and South Asian
13 East Street, Farnham, GU9 7RX
The old English market town of Farnham, blessed with some of the finest Georgian architecture in the South of England, is home to Mahaan, a family-run restaurant serving Indian and Bangladeshi dishes. You might have strolled past more than once, taking in the delicious aromatic spices as the doors swung open. Next time, let your curiosity get the better of you, and take a look inside. You'll find a sophisticated, stylish dining room decorated with large gleaming mirrors and contemporary artwork. The specialist chefs prepare everything to order using the finest ingredients they can lay their hands on - the leanest meat, the freshest vegetables, all delicately infused with spices from around the world. For Indian recipes with a modern twist, order one of the mouth-watering chef's specials. Expect to pamper your palate with starters such as kyberi jhinga - grilled king prawns tossed in garlic and spices then drizzled with tamarind sauce. Main courses too will impress, with the likes of maas jalfrezi (hot Bangladeshi fish stir fried with onions, peppers and tomatoes); and, of course, all the classic Indian and Bangladeshi dishes you know and love are also on the menu. Bhunas and baltis burst with flavour and dhansaks dazzle the tastebuds, while shashlicks and sags are simply superb. The Mahaan has plenty of space to accommodate large groups and, with a function room that can accommodate in excess of 100 people, it's the perfect place for a party.
