Mehek's Indian buffet in Fell's Point

My Fiance and I went to the lunch buffet at Mehek in Fell's Point today and enjoyed it quite a bit. I had heard about them from this forum and followed your recommendations. The buffet only cost $8.99 per person and one thing we appreciated is that none of the dishes were fire hot. They also had nice desserts, although I thought it was strange that they put the desserts at the beginning of the buffet line up instead of the end. The decor is very nice and somewhat upscale and the part of Fell's Point where the restaurant is looks nice this time of year. Someone posted a comparison to The Kitchen of India on Joppa Road in Towson and stated that they thought the food was better at Mehek, but we have to disagree with that - as good as the food was at Mehek, it was not better then Kitchen of India. It was different and the desserts may have been better, but all in all The Kitchen of India is still our current "go to" place for Indian buffet (it also helps that we live nearby to Kitchen of India). Mehek definitely wins over The Kitchen of India in decor. The price of the buffet is comparable - I think Kitchen of India is $1. more per person. I recommend either place if you like Indian buffets that don't take too many chances with hot spices. Another place that I hold in high regard for their Indian buffet is the Ambassador Dining Room, but of course you will spend more money there. The Ambassador Dining Room is a good place for outdoor seating in good weather or to impress a date since the decor/atmosphere is outstanding.
