All the classic Indian options, including broad array of vegetarian. Nice staff, minimal wait, and good quality food. Plus nice atmosphere, with bollywood playing in the background! Would definitely return.

This is the place to go. After being in Peru for over 10 days, being on the Inca trail for four , I was craving home cooked Indian flavors and needless to say Mantra satisfied my cravings. Nothing like walking into a place with familiar smells and music in a foreign country. The staff was attentive and prompt in their... More

No recomiendo este restaurant. La comida no es Buena, no tiene para nada el sabor de la comida India. El servicio es lento y los mozos te atienden como si te estuvieran un favor. Es un ambiente espacioso y bien arreglado pero nada mas. Hay mejores opciones. I can't recommend this restaurant. The food taste is average to poor, it... More

My wife and I were on Peru tour in September and after 16 days of rather bland meals were longing for spicy curries. The concierge of Casa Andina Private Collection arranged hotel taxi to take us to Mantra. The restaurant was spacious, clean and welcoming. The proprietor and staff spoke in Gujarati that made us feel at home. The chicken... More

Mantra has the best Indian food in Peru and has a very pleasant restaurant atmosphere. BUT service was inexcusably SLOW and sloppy. Also, a bit overpriced. My family and I live in Lima and we now prefer restaurante Guru for South Asian food in Peru.

Came to Lima on a business trip. Found out the only Indian resturant at Miraflores. Authentic Indian food with very nice ambience. Tried paneer dishes, daal and naan. Moderately priced and highly recommended. Will definitely visit again.
