Great food but very large portions. We ate only the entrees and even these defeated us sometimes. I'd recommend the port ribs and the chicken wings. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

This eatery is part of the Mantra chain and has been in operation a long time. The food and service were good- staff were friendly and very efficient. The ribs and steak were melt in the mouth although the presentation could do with an upgrade. So also the surroundings. Otherwise , no complaonts.

I stayed at the Mantra on Queen in August and I decided to have a early dinner next to the hotel, so I chose to try the restaurant of the hotel. The staff was pretty friendly and the location perfect. The meat was good, but $60 for some ribs, a garlic bread and a beer was way too much....

Was suspicious once the "theme" meant popcorn and peanuts to fill up on before our meals, and as much as we liked - why? The food was quite quick but I thought it was overpriced for what we got, and was pretty average quality. Although there was a dead cockroach on the middle of the floor amongst the tables, this...

If you want to eat good meal, you have to go to riverside, but it's too pricey and amount of dish is very little. We were fed up with it and I asked hotel staff to eat more casually, where local people go and this SSS was introduced. Their steak and rib are gigantic! Their recomendation is pork rib, which...

Ribs were dry, buffalo wings drenched in sickly sauce so bad we didn't touch after the first mouthful. charged us $14 two lemonades because they put it in a dodgy plastic sports drink bottles we didn't ask for. I thought food was bad before the bill, but then I was furious.
