“Great Atmosphere, Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Went here for dinner with my family. Loved the food. Martinis (various flavors) were delicious. Samosas were great. I had the crab chaat as an appetizer, lots of crab meat and nicely seasoned. Around the table we had lamb dishes, vegetarian, tandoori - everyone was happy. This was one Indian restaurant where they did not ask how hot you wanted it, I felt the level of spiciness was appropriate for the various dishes. The decor is modern. The waiter was friendly and the right amount of attentiveness. Two small issues was he did not remember who ordered what (there were 5 of us) and they did not have the ingredients for one of the drinks on the menu.

Note; Google directions took us to the wrong block on Washington - the restaurant is between Montgomery and York.

“Great Choice In Jersey City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013 via mobile

I recently attended a business dinner at Mantra and thought our meal and atmosphere excellent. I love it when restaurants have private rooms for meetings and this did not disappoint. Too, I liked that the room was blocked off with clear walls so it didn't feel claustrophobic. Then food was very tasty. Loved the lamb and sea bass! The service was excellent as well. Very attentive.
