Mehndi takes traditional North Indian cuisine to a whole new level. The bi-level dining space has a distinctively clean fell to it. Adorned with twenty-three Fourtuny chandeliers, the restaurant’s jewel tones glow as diners enjoy their artfully presented meals. On weekends, Indian henna artists sit on the marble staircase and apply henna to guests as they wait for their traditional Punjabi and Mughlai fare. We offer a corporate buffet lunch from 11:30am to 2:30pm Tuesday through Friday, and a lavish weekend lunch buffet from 12 Noon to 3:00pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

Mehndi Ratings and Reviews
We have not dined at Mehndi for many years, although we do enjoy Indian food quite often and have a favorite restaurant. Mehndi is in a grand space,but that is as far as we were impressed. The food was just okay and certainly not worth triple the price of the excellent Indian cuisine we are used to. Our server was very good, however the food service was very slow. Thankfully, our parking ticket was validated for 3 hours. Perhaps the lag is a ploy to encourage purchasing more drinks. In a nut shell, we would not return.
Mehndi never disappoints. I have eaten here probably a dozen times and have not had one unpleasant experience. The food is phenomenal and the staff is great. We usually get a henna tattoo when we visit but not tonight for some reason. We were busy enjoying fabulous food and conversation. 💕💕💕
Food was delicious! We love Indian food and this was great. We came on New Year's Eve and was planning on attending First Night which is seeing events on New Year's Eve so we were hoping for a warm start to the night and their heat was not working! Unfortunate and they should have offered something to compensate for the cold dining experience-- gave us 10% after asking. Will definitely be back.
You can always rely on authentic, tasty Indian food at Mehndi. We grabbed dinner with the family before a movie this week and everyone enjoyed their meals, even the picky teenager. If everyone orders their own meals, you will definitely walk away with leftovers. Everything was still great for lunch the next day! I can't begin to know how to pronounce or spell half the meals we had, but the lamb (in any dish) is always cooked perfectly and oh so tasty. The shrimp appetizer was new for us and really delicious. You can't go wrong. The only warning is that many dishes are spicy which not everyone likes. You should ask your server for suggestions.
I ate at Mehdi a number of times but it was my first lunch bufet experience and this time Mehndi did not measure up. Food was good as always and many good choices. But service was nonexistent, noone told us that bufet was the only option, noone even asked for our drink choices. And then they added 18% service charge to our bill. There were only 4 people in my group, so I did not expect an automatic service charge. And the waiter who brought the check never mentioned it. That was sleazy.
Appetizers were top notch, especially enjoyed the minced lamb. Dinners were better than the appetizers...best of 5 shared dishes was the Chicken Tiki Masala. Don't be afraid to ask for the curry spicy...it was very flavorful, but not at all hot. Really great dining experience, my only complaint was that the restaurant was cold.
Great Experience! It's upscale and classy! Everything we ordered was delicious and reflected the quality of ingredients. We were impressed with their wine list, It was not overwhelmingly huge but a great selection of wines from all over the world at very reasonable price! Their cocktail list looked impressive too but we were in mood for wine. What can be better than passionately cooked dinner paired with delicious wine in a nice upscale environment? Our server was great and offered to decant our Barolo ! It was one of the best Borolo I ever had in any restaurant and priced at only $ 69 or $ 70 I guess ! I have been to many restaurants owned by big name Chefs but the taste and quality of everything we enjoyed at Mehndi was the best! There was Henna artist also. We went there on Saturday so It was super busy. We had reservation so we were okay but some people were told that there was 1 or 2 hour wait . Next time we'll go on a weekday for a more relaxed dinner. Overall Excellent!!!
Food was excellent. Unfortunately, unable to serve hot beverages the evening I went and wanted tea. Could not hear what waiter was saying about not having tea so I was very confused and frustrated about wanting a simple cup of hot tea. The food was so good that I overcame my emotion of not getting tea. Yes, it was that good.
Went to Mehndi for dinner last night. We had the Paneer with the tomato base, Mergh chicken, Saffron rice and butter Naan. Everything was delicious. My wife got a henna tattoo while we waited for our meal. Dessert was also very good. I had the Kulfi ice cream and my wife had the Gulab Jamun.
A solid place for Indian food. My family always enjoys meals here. This time, the service was very odd. We were the only table seated for a while and our waiter never came by. We also ordered white wine that was totally warm. It was not ready to drink until halfway through the meal. Still, the food is very good.
If you are a lover of Indian cuisine you'll love the food at Mehndi. The menu choices are vast and every dish that I've ever had, has been wonderful. On this occasion I had the lamb vindaloo which was perfectly cooked. Perhaps not spicy enough, considering it's a vindaloo, but very tasty nevertheless. Highly recommend Mehndi.
Because of matinee theater tickets, we ate right when the restaurant opened at noon. We were the only customers for the entire time we were there, and because the buffet was fresh, we chose it. (Usually we prefer to order from the menu.) The dishes were standard NJ Indian fare, but with some extra, somewhat unusual flavors added. We enjoyed it very much. The Indian rap music was tiresome, but at least the volume was pretty low.
The food is always consistently very good. The waiter recommended the lamb chop special which was absolutely fantastic (and I would not normally choose lamb). The vegetarian also had a huge assortment of food options.
If you are going to the movies, this is a great option before or after or just anytime.
I have been to Mendhi three times now, different times of the day, and it has been consistent- great food, good service. Food prices higher than your neighborhood Indian buffet place but it is worth it. Complimentary henna tattoo also a nice touch. Creative and extensive drink menu, too!
Three of us ate here on a Wednesday night and what a pleasure to be able to hear what fellow diners were saying. Can't remember when I was last in a quiet restaurant, not sure how it is on crowded weekends, though. Every dish we had was very good, different levels of spicyness to suit your taste. Service was a bit slow and waiter had a sort of superior air about him, hard to describe but definitely there. They share a terrific bar with Ming 11 next door and the bartenders design some wonderfully creative cocktails.
