Had dinner at Mantra while in Temecula on business. The food was excellent, prices very fair, and the wait staff was very friendly. I would definitely go back and am looking forward to having my leftovers for lunch tomorrow!

They have an awesome lunch buffet, if you want to go in and test out what you like. Food is always fresh and great tasting with a nice variety on the buffet. Cannot go wrong here. Can get quite busy at lunch time.

Authentic Indian served to the level of spiciness requested. All the traditional flavors and combinations. The spicy masala tastes like bhuna masala, very flavorful. If only the beer menu were provided, maybe 5 stars. I asked for a beer menu, but none was provided.

Tried this restaurant based on reviews here and we were not disappointed. Quiet on a Monday night, very quickly seated and drinks order taken. We ordered chicken tikka Marsala and Lamb Korma with sides of rice and naan, spice level six. The food came quickly...More
