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.

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.

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

After discovering Tantra, it has become my family's favorite restaurant. Every single menu item we have tried is incredible, the prices are very reasonable, and the atmosphere is top notch. It is a restaurant that everyone in the QC area must try!

Food was fresh and delicious, with a good variety to choose from, including Udon Noodles, Korean ribs, various curries, fried rice, and seafood dishes. I had the chile fried rice with extra veggies, which was delicious and just a bit spicy. Colleagues had the green curry, salmon... More
