We visited for dinner on a locals recommendation. The service was good, but the restraunt was empty. I appeared that many people were doing take out. Food was fresh and delicious. They had a nice wine selection as well. We enjoyed our dinner experience.

Terrible, dirty, cold food, worst service ever and they ran out of ingredients. What a dump. So sad we used to go there regularly but since they have become more popular they have become the worst Indian restaurant ever!!!

I have had food from Mantra twice now, once catered in a party and once at the restaurant. The service is really good. The place smelled a little though, but we got used to it in the first few minutes, it was probably indian food...More
