Great Indian Lunch Buffet - Options for both Herbivores and Carnivores

By the way I went there on a Friday around 1PM and the restaurant was half-full. They had a... read more

I have never been so disappointed or never ever thought someone could so wrong with simple India food & that too when you are representing your own country in another! I happened to go for lunch at Mantra during my recent visit to New Jersey & was saddened to see what my fellow Indians are selling in name of "Indian... More

We were immediately seated and felt very welcomed by the hostess. Drinks and appetizers were very good. Food was tasty and each dish had its own flavor(unlike many places, where all dishes are similar). Breads were hot and crispy. What more can you ask for?

We received a Groupon for Mantra and I confess I was expecting a 'typical' Indian restaurant experience, especially with a restaurant located in a strip mall - but I am pleased to share that this visit delivered so much more! The setting is beautiful - you feel like you walked into an upscale Manhattan eatery. The meal was several cuts... More

We invite food for the office from there. The food was very good but when I look at the website to go with the family, I saw that the prices are a bit high from what I use to in Indian resturant.

In the area and went because of a Groupon. Surprised to see the restaurant in a shopping plaza. It was very nice inside with dim lighting, attentive staff and professional servers. The food was all delicious! Only thing to mention is that it is expensive, I would have not gone without the Groupon. I ordered the Kerala fish curry it... More

For Indian food, outside India, this is one of the best bet. A very upscale restaurant, exotic North Indian cuisine, and bar of its own. appetizers are great.. though, they need to work on their main course...
