I've been here on a few occasions and it has always been a very cozy, nice restaurant. The food is great and although it may seem "little", it is always filling.. good service as well. A nice family owned Indian restaurant :)

Cozy restaurant! Delicious food and good service, price is nice. Located in a quiet street, it worth the visit if you like Indian food or if you want to try something different.

I have visited this restaurant several times on my visit to the Netherlands and have nothing but praises for this lovely restaurant, the food, the staff and the ambiance. Finding Mantra, tucked away in a small street is tricky, but if you have found it once, you will never want to Indian anywhere else in Arnhem and the neighboring cities.... More

Yesterday we eat in this Indian restaurant in Arnhem. We love vegetarian Indian food and visited manny Indian restaurants already. This one really is one of the best. The food was fresh and the taste was very well balanced. We both can eat a lot but the portions where large enough. The rice at the site seems freshly cooked or... More

Could Mantra be the best restaurant in The Netherlands? Logically it wouldn't be possible to make such a statement, after all how can you compare Indian cuisine to any other type of food? But when it comes to quality for value and the best service at a consistent high level, I have yet to find a restaurant in The Netherlands... More
