One of my best meal in the Netherlands. (Detailed review)

Arrived time: around 1740 (they had a table occupied at that time plus a couple of reserved tables) By 1830, more customer kept flooding in and it was pretty much full house then. They had to turn some customers away. Reserve if you can't come early! Atmosphere: great, dim lights, candles... read more

I and my colleague had gone for dinner on 10-Nov and were welcomed with fantastic papadums and nice sauce accompanied with it. The sauce was very tasty and we liked it very much. After that, we ordered two vegetarian menus, mango lassi and more papadums. The food started to arrive: It was starter (Samosa/Onion bhajji), delicious soup, main course, dessert... More

Mantra is definitely one of the better kept secrets in Arnhem. My family, friends and myself have been have enjoying their delicious food for years now. Whether it’s their fragrant palak paneer, the crispy papadums and fresh naan, or slightly spicy roghan josh, this cozy restaurant somehow always manages to satisfy everyone’s palate. The interior has had some touch-ups over... More

Excllent Indian restaurant in Arnhem. We have been regulars for quite a few years, have tried others but Mantra tops all and is our favorite. The food is delicious, all due to a very good chef and one is made to feel very welcome by the owners and friendly staff!

The restaurant is not in an inspiring location tucked down a small alley and quite easy to miss - dont be put off. Once inside you are in a clean, comfortable restaurant , small enough to be cosy but justifably busy. We were recommended to try it by 2 different local couples and were not disappointed. Great vegetarian choices -... More

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.
