Had dinner that again two nights ago and was throouhgly impressed. The food, as usual, was excellent and despite the place being packed (including a private party in the main dining room), the service was terrific.

Food is very good. The chef knows his job well. But overall experience was average due to waiter. His name was Jose (quite rare Indian name ;-) and he was horrible!!!! Stay away from him!

Mantra occupies the space of a former Indian restaurant and has been redecorated to create a more elegant upscale atmosphere. I have been here twice. The food is very good but both times, everyone in our party found the serving size to be very skimpy. Dishes come with a great deal of sauce so portions appear decent, but then one... More

We have visited Mantra several times and never had a bad meal here. The food is fresh, delicious and innovative in many cases. You can get the usual Tandoori and curries, which are very well prepared and tasty, however, we have also had some of the chef's specials which are creative and almost "nouvelle" Indian food. The atmosphere is lovely... More
