... and I wasn't impressed one bit. We did a book club meeting here. We had read a novel being based on Indian food and culture and thought it would be a good setting to discuss it. A couple of people in our group liked it. I don't know what to compare it to, as I'd never had it but... More

Mantra is a very good Indian restaurant, and definitely the best of four in the local area. They have good prices and have a really nice buffet style set up for the weekday lunch crowd.

You are greeted at the door and immediately seated. There's never any dithering around which we appreciate very much. The restaurant is quiet and you can carry on a conversation without yelling at each other. We always have the garlic naan which is great, the spinach paneer, a fish dish (all have been excellent) and we often have the vegetable... More

The Indian style curry filled food rates as one of the best I have ever tried. It was delicious. We had the Lamb, Chicken and Lentil dishes with white rice. No need for any take-home bags. There wasnt anything left. The decor could be updated and the music seemed to be playing more for the cook (sound seemed distant like... More

Had a great time, our server was patient and joked with us...the food was very flavorful. We started with the Samosas and they didn't disappoint, I love anything potato though and this was fried! I had the Tandoori Dinner to try a bit of everything and the different meats had a lot of flavor and was very tender. The vegetable... More

This restaurant has the best Indian food we've ever tasted, and we have eaten in several Indian restaurants. We ordered their complete dinners; mine was vegetarian for $12.95 and my husband had the meat variety complete dinner for a few dollars more. Our food was delicious, served hot, and very tasty. The portions were generous, and we were able to... More

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" has turned into "again? Ok!" Bring an... More
