Boycotted Mantra for awhile due to bad and slow service! We were craving for good Indian food and the only restaurant that fits the bill is Mantra! We were there Saturday and they have new staff! The food is always delicious but the service was amazing totally 360 degrees turn around! Service was quick and didn’t even have to ask for water! They poured water consistently which a definitely a plus in my opinion!

Mantra is our favorite restaurant in NJ. Last week we asked Fadeeb to make us a surprise feast off the menu. He made an amazing meal for my whole family including items that are not on the menu. IT WAS OUTRAGEOUS AND DELICIOUS!!!

MANTRA ALWAYS DELIVERS AND NEVER DISAPPOINTS!!

The food was very good. The rice arrived too late as we were half way into the entree. I should have received a larger portion of Crab Molee considering the price. The ice cream dessert was very good but there was no coffee available as the coffee maker was not working.

Our waiter seemed to had forgotten that we didn’t order dinner and we had to flag him down. I expected mantra to be a different experience, like high end. That let me down as it wasn’t. But bad but nothing fantastic. Food was over priced esp the ambiance they didn’t have.

Mantra was an old favorite of ours, and on our regular restaurant rotation when we lived closer to it. Once we moved out of town (and during the pandemic) we lost track of it. I'm very please we have rekindled our love for the place, the food and the service. We'll be back again soon!

They were so supportive for my reservation needs. The food was amazing. The apps were the best part!!!! They even catered to our palette needs. I cannot eat anything spicy. When I told the waiter this, he recommended a plate that was so good!!!! The drinks were great too!

Food and service were excellent as always! Tables were spaced out across the front of the building and they did a great job with trying to make the outside space feel inviting with tiki torches, LED globes and other touches. (You could opt to dine in as well). The staff and kitchen were extremely accommodating with our dietary restrictions, and management stopped by to thank us and the other diners for coming out that night. So glad Mantra is making it through this tough time, and highly recommend them for dine-in or takeout!
