Great selection of dishes and flavours! The salads were amazing and a wide choice of warm dishes for lunch. Original combinations of Oriental dishes and local foods. very good service. The waiter made special effort to get us a nice table after queuing for a while. Will definitely return!

This is a fusion vegetarian restaurant located in the Escalante neighborhood, a place packed with great restaurants. The manager is Greek. The Asian dishes are very good, and in general the ingredients are fresh, and the servings are large. I am not a vegetarian but I enjoyed every dish very much.

A-ma-zing veggie restaurant... everything (everything!) I have tried here is delicious. And for lunch they always have very very cheap options that make it hard to decide what to eat. It´s very flavorful food... Yummy!

Wow what a treat to have this sort of food here. They have a whole range of items in the menu, raw, vegan, vegetarian, smoothies, juices, deserts, pasta, wraps and breakfast. The raw pizza was delicious and serving sizes generous. Definitely worth a visit!

I've had a great range of things from their menu and I can assure you that everything I've had it's been great. Super healthy without being "brown food" Mantras not only has delicious food, it also has great service and great prices.

I went for lunch at Mantras and they had an amazing selection of lunch specials. It's a beautiful small place, I sat in the little outer patio. The service was amazing, the food was incredible, the price was very reasonable. I was able to choose between a pumpkin and ginger soup or a lucious green salad as an appetizer, plus... More
