"Mantra" is the sister restaurant to "The Indian Garden" Chicago. Since coming into business; our family at "IG" has offered an exploration of India's culture though its cuisine. We wanted to share the Indian tradition Atithi Devo Bhau, the supreme importance of the guests with Schiller Park.

Elegant and inviting; with a sumptuous decor awash in the hue's of India's signature spices and decor, the senses were meant to be indulged. Every aspect of Mantra; the food, the decor, the ambiance was designed to excite your senses while also ushering them through the passage of Culinary Nirvana.

    Had a great meal. Would have hoped more private for business meeting. It was pretty quiet & empty, so understand why everyone was seated in same room. We enjoyed our meal and service, but spent the whole meal swatting flies! Don’t know why, but maybe dining room need a cleaning and disinfecting.

    definitely recommend this place. Ambiance- beautiful and unique with Indian Ambiance. there is internal area and extended area which is permanently covered. internal area has air conditioning, extended area has fans. we got a corner table, we had no fans and none of the windows were open and all of us were sweating and when asked they said that since they do not have fan there they cannot do anything. reservation- made by open table. we had to wait 10 minutes even after reservation and they did not have my name on the list. and when asked about it, they said that they reservations from different platforms and they are not able to handle all of them, so even the parties having reservations usually wait. Crowd- good crowd. family friendly, not noisy. Occassion - we went for birthday celebrations. They allow birthday cake and will provide you with plates and knife for cake cutting. but they will not keep your cake in the refrigerator, as they have no space in the refrigerator. since it was hot, we carried out cake in cooling bag with ice in it. Drinks- last time I ordered lemonade, they had home made lemonade but this time it was bottled lemonade from the market. they had local wine, did not have wine which was mentioned in the menu. Beer was asked and they did not bring beer for 15-20 min and when asked again and again, it was hot. who drinks hot beer??? Food- Food was really good. better than the last time I had. we loved it. had a lot of extra oil which you could actually see floating on top. Appetizers were tasty, but they were served in broken plate

    We were served a meal with Nuts even thought we asked if they were any nuts in it and told no. My son is allergic to nuts and we ended up at the ER while being charged for the whole meal

    Our first go at Indian food- it was delicious and the waiter Helped us pick the right items for a first time visit. It was very busy and could have used more staff but that is the case at every restaurant these days. We made a reservation but for what ever reason they took larger parties before us that had no reservation. Overall a very good experience and we want to go back to try other dishes.

    Great food Crème brûlée was not available for dessert. Indian Beer was not available after my first bottle. Server sat us then moved us because another table needed space. Weird experience. We will keep to take out here in the future.

    Service was extremely slow and inattentive. Even had to go to the bar to pay our check, for the lack of servers on the dining room. IWith that aside, the food is very good and the portions are reasonable. We enjoyed curry fish, lamb and more. Ample parking and the dining room is nicely appointed. We’ll be back.

    Food was really good but the service needs work. We waited 20 mins after seating for wait staff to come by (that was after going to find someone). They ran out of certain food items. Once dinner arrived, it made up for slow service!

    Ordered food to be spicy. Food was decent but to make the food spicy, the chef just added more chili powder and that took away the flavor of the dishes. Perhaps that pallet works for many people who are looking for chili in their food - spicy to me means more chili powder as well as more of the spices that bring flavor to the dishes. As a result, I would rate the food as below average.

    As other reviewers have said, the host was gruff. We arrived early, and he made us wait until our reservation time, even though all the tables were set up. No one came to our table for about 20 minutes. I think they must have been short-staffed. The food was excellent, and the service picked up after the initial wait. The servers were the bartenders, and ours clearly did not know the meaning of "up" when it comes to a Manhattan. Despite the drawbacks, it was a good experience, and I'd go back.

    This is worth the drive, the Rogan Josh is the best around, Murgh Makani (butter Chicken) is down right fantastic and the naan is fresh and buttery. Service is good considering the short staffed issues places are having right now. I highly recommend and also recommend using Open Table to make a reservation so you don't have to wait!

    We had reserved a table for a party of 4. The table we were seated at could barely by able to fit the food for two people. The table was so small that we couldn’t even keep the water carafe on the table and had to put it on the floor, and there was not enough space for our plates (so we sent back the small bread plates and just kept everything in our dinner plates). The food arrived at the table and the presentation was messed up in the transportation process from the kitchen to the table. I wish I had taken some pictures to show but I was turned off. The food was quite tasty and if we had a bigger table with better presentation of food, I would likely have enjoyed the experience much more. I rate this restaurant highly for food but not for anything else.

    One of the best upscale (little) indian restaurants around Chicagoland area. Being an indian miss that kind off dinning experience on special days. The food is excellent, Naans were so soft and well made, thats hard to find in regular indian restaurants. Everything we ordered was delicious. Only thing is the service is little slower the expected but again you really don't want to rush at such places where you can enjoy your dinner time. Keep it up 👍

    Reservations are just a concept to this restaurant. We had to wait at least 30 minutes to get a table and apparently most guests there were in the same boat. Overbooking just like an airline.

    We had a reservation and we told to wait 15 minutes because the returner was busy. Took 45 minutes to be seated. Our appetizers were cold and stale. Food was brought out with some of the wrong order and when asked to correct it they charged us double for the correction

    5 stars for service by the 2 servers. Excellent! The reason for one less start is the manager. Grumpy at the door while greeting us and at the end of our meal he was rude enough to ask us if we were done so we can leave and make room for other gusts. Very unprofessional! Full appreciation for the 2 servers who served us.

    Good looking restaurant with good looking customers! Portions were large and tasty. The reason for four stars instead of five was the "salad" that I ordered as an appetizer, which came with the meal instead and was a huge pile of raw vegetables (red onion, raw jalapenos, cucumber, carrot, and tomato slices). Would have been a side dish for 10 diners, but as it was, it was weird (can I really eat 8 raw half jalapenos?).

    Food and atmosphere is great. Service is also really good. Pricing is a little high for what you get. Overall, this is a great place if you want good Indian food. Just wish they would price the dinners a little better.
