Part of a family run chain of Indian restaurants that spans over 40 years, Mehek is Burnham-on-Crouch’s go-to location for classic and contemporary Indian cuisine.
Utilising only the best in organic spices straight from India, the true taste of the Asian subcontinent can be savoured at Mehek. The dedication to traditional cooking methods goes hand in hand with modern touches, such as only using cholesterol free oil.
Diners who call in advance can secure a table at Mehek and enjoy some unbeatable discounts with their tastecard, allowing the opportunity to indulge in a rich two course meal. Start with one of the exemplary appetisers, such as the scrumptious Simla Red Pepper, a whole red pepper coated in tandoori sauce and stuffed with spiced meat and onions, the delightful salmon tikka, enriched with herbs and spices and cooked in a tandoori clay oven, and the tantalising Thall Bagon Fry, a medley of special spices and sliced aubergine.
Traditionalists will adore the wide range of well-known and uncommon curries, including dishes consisting of korma and madras to cylon and sagwala, and those who walk on the mild side will surely enjoy the English dishes served, like the classic fish and chips and the eclectic options of the omelette.
those seeking something special should peruse the ‘Exclusive to Mehek’ menu, where particularly merit worthy dishes include the delectable Duck Methi, off the bone duck prepared with brandy, honey and almonds, the zesty Desi Special, spiced chicken cooked with lemon grass and lime leaves, and the fiery Bangla Special, whole jumbo prawns served in a chopped garlic and ginger rich bhuna sauce.
With a menu virtually split in half to cater to vegetarians and a startling variety of curries, any curry connoisseur would find themselves in love at Mehek.
