Majority of the members of Mehndi come from South Asian countries of Pakistan, UAE, and Saudi Arabia. However, there is still a good percentage of members coming from the United Kingdom. You will see members who are current citizens and residents of the United Kingdom but have South Asian roots that can clearly be distinguished from their facial features. Yet, you can still find Caucasian members, mostly men, who are interested in dating a different race.

The first step is for you to provide your email, first and last name, country, and nominate a username and password. The next step is for you to build your profile, which means you need to provide some basic information about yourself.

The search filters of Mehndi are detailed that the possibility of finding a match is ideal. You can save your filters so you can use them again next time. If you find a profile that you know would be a good match for your friend, you may refer the profile to him or her even if he or she is not a Mehndi member yet.

Profile Quality

Mehndi Profile
  • You can only see profile photos of other members who are at least 50% match with you
  • Standard members can upload up to three photos
  • Profiles and photo uploads are subject to approval
  • Profiles show how compatible you are with a member
  • Private Personal Albums can be bought even without a premium membership

    Member profiles on Mehndi are detailed and comprehensive. Every profile has a ‘Quick Look’ section on top, which features the basic details you need to know about the member such as age, location, religion, ethnicity, and languages spoken. There is also a small box under his or her profile picture that shows a percentage of how compatible you are with each other. On the right side of the ‘Quick Look’ section are the contacting features.

    Under the ‘Quick Look’ section, you will see a short autobiography, with a dropdown menu of available languages you can translate the paragraph to. Below this are two tabs: one is called the ‘Basic Profile’ and the other is ‘Extended Profile’.

    The ‘Basic Profile’ shows all the member’s information about appearance, cultural background, social background, and everything related to his or her ideal match. The ‘Extended Profile’ shows his or her interests in sports, fun and entertainment, food, and music.

    Most members of Mehndi does not have an extensive photo gallery as standard members are only allowed to upload a maximum of three photos. Standard members can buy Personal Albums, which allows up to 200 photo uploads and private settings. Premium members automatically have Personal Albums as it comes with the premium membership they availed. However, we observed that premium members do not use this paid feature that much.

    App

    Mehndi Mobile
    • No mobile app available
    • Has a dedicated mobile version
    • Mobile version has encourages good user experience
    • Fewer features than the desktop version
    • Chat function available

    Mehndi doesn’t have a mobile app, but it has a dedicated mobile site. The dedicated mobile site helps any user on-the-go to use the important features of the website such as chat messaging and search functions. All features are organized in a collapsible sidebar menu. The special features of the dating site, however, can be a little bit hard to access from mobile, as you might need to do a lot of clicks before you get there. 

     The difference of Mehndi’s mobile version from the desktop version is the mobile site has a shortcut to your current online chat status. You can choose to be active or inactive in just one click.

    Real Life Review

    “I’m a UK citizen with South Asian ethnic roots. My dad was born and raised in Pakistan, while my mom is British. Growing up in the United Kingdom Australia, I acquired British culture, but we still practised our religious beliefs at home. This didn’t make me feel different among my peers, but when it comes to dating, it kind of was. Living in a white suburban community, and working in a company that is white dominated, it was a bit challenging to find a partner. Not until I found Mehndi / Qiran. I signed up for a 6-month premium membership and all the cost was worth it. I found my wife from the platform, after talking online for a while, which eventually led to secure calling, then on a face-to-face date. We immediately clicked and got married a year later. We are happily married for five years now, and that’s all thanks to Mehndi!” - Andrade, 39, London

    Design and Usability

    With all the features that Mehndi offers on its platform, the dating site’s web design still makes it easy for a user of any age to find everything he or she needs from the platform. The user dashboard consolidates all the contact directories, messages and files received, matchmaker tools, profile needs, and Account settings on one page. On every page of the website, there is a sidebar menu that consists of tabs that lead to your Account needs, search features, paid services, and help & support links.

    The site has few, small ads found on the sidebar, footer, and sometimes in the middle of the page. Some ads are quite confusing because they fit seamlessly on the website with regard to design and content, making you think that the ad is part of the page. Nevertheless, the ads are not intrusive with a member’s user experience.
