I have eaten here many times and it never disappoints. The service is always good and you never wait long for your meal. The flavor is excellent and the food is always fresh. They also have a nice bar menu. Specialty martinis and interesting import beers. You get a fantastic meal and a great price!

I've eaten at other tantra locations before and I will have to say that the service is courteous and they checked up every 5 minutes which I thought was great. And the yellow curry was even better. The sauce wasn't runny but it wasn't too thick, and the flavor wasn't too strong so you can taste the potatoes and carrots... More

This restaurant is much larger than it appears from outside. There is also an outdoor seating area, but we chose to sit inside because it was a hot, humid day. I had the Panang Curry. Delicious flavor with a bit of a kick. Our server was polite and prompt. The menu has a lot of items I'd like to try.... More

This restaurant is in a building located in a industrial park. Despite that, atmosphere was above average. Food is very good, nice selection, priced right. Service is slow, very slow. There are too few people working requiring the few employees to take on multiple roles. Example, ordered martinis and beer. Beer came quick, martini came much later due to no... More

Me and a friend stopped in for lunch. Their lunch menu was surprisingly inexpensive for a more upscale place. Serving size was big. Two people ate for less than twenty dollars. I had kung pao chicken. The waiter even brought out two homemade hot sauces when I said I liked it spicy. Will definitely be back for dinner.

Very nice menu with many selections. Black Pepper Garlic with chicken was tasty but a bit bland. The Pad Thai was nice as was the chicken satay. Friendly wait staff. Clean restaurant inside and outside. Clean restrooms. Comfortable atmosphere. Friendly prices. Ample parking. While my dining experience was not bad, it was simply average, I will not go out of...

Owner Kevin and his team give you great service with amazing Asian cuisine. All dishes were great especially the seafood hot and sour soup. Great atmosphere as well with good wine list etc. Locals love this place as well.

Tantra is the one thing I miss most about Iowa. This small, upscale little restaurant on 53rd St in Davenport is my favorite place to eat ANYWHERE. Their calamari is flash friend with a tempora batter and served hot with sweet chili sauce. I have had fresh calamari from all over the World and you will never taste a finer... More
