- Great SeafoodTonyDined on 11/21/2014Extensive seafood menu plus beef and chicken dishes. Roasted beet salad and blackened swordfish were outstanding. Prof waiter was very helpfu with suggestions and care for his customers. We'll be back again.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Classic Seal BeachOpenTable Diner Since 2005VIPDined on 11/15/2014This restaurant has a couple of things going for it. The bar scene here totally rocks. Unless you are lucky, be prepared to stand. Music too. The restaurant is excellent, good service and good food. But don't go without a reservation. You won't sit down to eat until the very end of the night!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Seafood restaurant at the beachOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 11/14/2014If you like fish and you like sushi rolls this is the restaurant for you. Wine List is decent, service is outstanding, and the Quality of the food is consistently good. Mahe is a great little neighborhood fish restaurant.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great seafoodBobeanieDined on 10/25/2014We used to dine here when it was "The Glider Inn"; sorry to see it change, but were pleased with the new place. Interesting combo of sushi bar and steak/fish "regular" restaurant. Service was excellent; food was delicious; my husband and I both ordered fish. The potatoes au gratin were a bit undercooked, but we were given a free desert as an apology. We appreciated that. We will return.Special Features:

- Great dinner spot in seal beachtinkerbell27greenwings2Dined on 10/10/2014We really enjoyed the food and the place. It was a little noise for a romantic dinner but it was great food from the apprtizer to the salad to the dinner and dessert was amazing. Loved the martini also. Great service and we have already told people about this great resturant.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Great Fusion Sushi PlaceNateinVegasDined on 9/6/2014I have been going to this place since it changed from Glider Inn to Mahe. I hope this explains the plane on top of the restaurant. We, my Husband and I, went on a Saturday night, which since we had made a reservation, there was not a wait to be seated. It can be on a Saturday night, We ordered the Tataki wraps, excellent and Chioppino (sp). Everything was excellent. I could not think of anyplace better for seafood and sushi, in a energenic vibe of the room. Parking is via complimentary valet and they are very friendly and quick. This place is one of our go to spots in Seal Beach.Special Features:
- Great for SeafoodDymotoDined on 9/6/2014We both had the Cioppino. This is a delicious mixture of shellfish in a fantastic tomato broth. Restaurant is busy and loud but the food makes up for it.Special Features:
- MediocreMaryVIPDined on 9/6/2014Wasnt impressed. I have lived within 5 miles of this restaurant my entire life, and have never been- but have always heard great things. Unfortunately, I was disappointed. I came with a party of four- two of us in dresses.... and at our first table we were soaked from the wet seats, which i'm assuming they had just cleaned (very happy they are being cleaned, but was not happy to have a wet butt the rest of dinner). My husband asked for his steak med rare, it was med well... if not well. No pink whatsoever. My sushi was ok. Not something to write home about. All in all... nothing terrible to report, but I was definitely disappointed. Hoping it was a fluke... Maybe an off night.
- Super fun outingOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 9/5/2014We brought our 10 year old and she had a great time. I wouldn't bring young kids at night. Will definitely go back. For sushi, the prices were great and you can also get food like a burger for non sushi lovers.Special Features:

- Bitthday dinner for my husbandTaz1Dined on 9/2/2014My swordfish was excellent and I'm not a fish eater. My husband had the steak and enjoyed his meal. Next time we come back we will definitely have the fish.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- MaheHBfoodieDined on 8/31/2014We made an early reservation at the last minute and were fortunate to have Melanie as our server. She was great! Poke appetizer was good, not great. Filet tender and tasty. Ahi entree a bit over cooked. Veggies crisp if a little too much oil. Chocolate cake dessert was a chocolate lovers dream. Great service.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great food, but loud!EricDined on 8/15/2014Took my wife here for her birthday, with our younger kids in tow. It was a Friday night, so Mahe was packed with people and very busy. Everything was great, but it was very loud. The place is fairly tight, and the bar noise flows right into the restaurant (and I think there was a live band playing back there on this particular night). So it was tough to have a conversation across the table, but at least the noise masked my own normally loud kids! I'll definitely go back, but I think I'll try a weekday.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- As always, the atmosphere,OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 9/21/2012As always, the atmosphere, food and service were fantastic. The bar was crowded, which is actually perfect because it added to the energy of the band- The Reflexx. We had a great night, one of many at Mahe.Special Features:
- Good sushi, good land and sea food.OpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 9/21/2012Good food in a small happening place. Great live band bar at back , amazing seafood and great land food.Special Features:
- Server at the bar side notOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 9/21/2012Server at the bar side not polite. Pushing the people at the dance floor to pass through and not even saying excuse me. I think they expect that by pushing us away were suppose to understand and know that we need to move away from them. Dance floor needs to be a bit bigger. Maybe it will avoid the pushing as well if they make te dance floor bigger and not so tight and squeeze.
