How did they do that?

Bottom line: GREAT FOOD! I've had Indian food in 6 different countries. Mantra is FAR and AWAY the best Indian food ever. And it's in Temecula. Temecula folks. Who does that?!? The decor is unimpressive and the music is repetitive. But the FOOD. Oh My. What started as "let's try this place out... read more

Ate the lunch time buffet with my wife who is vegetarian and really enjoyed he meal. I had Rogan Josh, the Korma, Tandoori Chicken and Chicken Tika Masala and Kebabs (Sheema?). Not sure what my wife had but there was as much vegetarian selection as there were meat selections. All fresh and good flavor. Our friend Ashish recommended it and... More

Very good food and plenty of it in buffet style. The aroma of the food wafts out as you open the door. Very tasty rice and Naan! The employees are attentive.

Have been here many times. It is a great change from the priocessed chain food that is available. Nice spot to go after wine tasting, golf, or shopping across the highway at the mall. Large Portion Size and excellent staff, although they have issues with english sometimes. Always a good sign when you go into a ethnic restaurant and see... More

We went to Mantra while coming back from Palm Spring. The ambience of the place is very pleasing. The people working there were very polite and courteous. And the food was the best part. I got a feel of real Indian food after having diner there. However, I must say that it was a bit on expensive side.
