I sort of rediscovered Madras Mantra Indian restaurant since there had been a break of several years between my recent visit and my last visit. I think it must have gone through several changes in kitchen staff, because I don't remember it being as flavorful and fresh as it is now.
The menu is extensive, with clear descriptions of every dish, so you know all the main ingredients. It's vegetarian, but as an animal protein eater, I didn't miss the meat factor at all. They really know how to combine spices, veggies, yogurt in ways you wouldn't expect. My favorite dishes are dosas, giant pancakes made with garbanzo bean flour and wonderful filings, many with a potato base, but not all. The curries are delicious and the accompanying chutneys are a welcome addition. I can't wait to return. Did I mention that they have a great all-you-can-eat lunch buffet?

We went there for Saturday lunch buffet. Buffet covers all types of South Indian vegetarian cuisine including dosa, idli and vada. They also had a variety of curries and deserts. Good thing is they do not add too much oil or creams and taste is authentic south Indian. Not sure how any one can top this.

The South Indian varieties were very very tasty, The north Indian dishes were below average and needs to be improved.

This is a great restaurant. The entire menu is vegetarian but that should not be a deterrent. You won't miss it with all of the choices. The only downside is that service is not consistent and they don't really tell you what is coming out in terms of sauces/dips so be assertive and ask. Each Dosai is different. The cheese one was nothing special but some of the others are good. It is not their strongest point. All said, it is a great deal and good food.
