The atmosphere is amazing here. Highly recommend it! The food is wonderful too!!! We had multiple dishes and just filled ourselves till we burst. So yummy!!!! And the food wasn't super salty which was nice since most indian food is way too salty. The service is incredibly slow. Our food came fast but it took forever to get drinks. They... More

I ended up eating here on a business Trip in Chicago. There about 10 of us at a table. We ordered a bunch of different foods and am shared them. Everything was really good. Not too spicy or bland. The environment was nice as well. Not too loud or too busy. Don't get me wrong, the place had a lot... More

We stayed at a nearby hotel and Mantra provided a free shuttle. We had the tandoori meal that had 5 different meats, and another chicken dish. Both excellent. We also added garlic naan bread. We sat in a room that was covered and enclosed, but the huge windows were open so it was almost like eating outside. Will return.

Mantra charges high prices for an a la carte Indian menu with low value. Meat dishes are mostly broth for $17 + extra $4 for rice. Flavors were flat and underwhelming. So disappointed.

Mantra looks good from the outside and from the inside but that is where it seems to end. The service was slow and lackluster - I am not sure that they cared if we were there. The food was good and average - one exception, the tandori chicken was plentiful and very good. No desire to go back - to... More

I always love the taste Mantra serves. However, the degrading service here makes me think one more time whether to go there or not. I've always logged my complaint to the manager and he assured me of better service next time - the next time never came :-| However, if you can manage with service over great taste - Mantra... More
