Atmosphere was terrible due to so many people waiting for food/service. Waiting staff working flat out but just couldn’t cope with the numbers booked in and it really wasn’t their fault. Management/owners really need to sort their act out.
Food was excellent.
What a pleasant surprise to find this restaurant in Bath. After messing up the reservation for my Husbands Birthday, I found Mantra last minute in Open table. It was all that we needed for. Great food, very tasty and well presented. Friendly staff. And we set on a nice patio overlooking Bath. A great way to spend Sunday afternoon and celebrate my husband. Will definitely go back.
The outdoor area was used creatively and felt very welcoming.The food was tasty ,well flavoured and the dosa's were excellent however the portion.s could have been more generous.
I don’t understand how they price this place as if it’s a top tier restaurant. Having to pay separately for rice and naan meant that altogether my curry costed £20 - a crazy price for a (really small) curry - and the coconut rice was just rice with dessicated coconut mixed in instead of being creamy and steamed in coconut milk. The vegetarian platter was tiny for “£15” worth (2 samosas, 2 pieces of paneer, some veggies and a little sauce). The glasses were dirty. All of the poppadom sauce loiked straight out of a packet (fiver). The cocktail was so overly sweet, it tasted like an energy drink. One of our starters arrived 15 mins after the other. We were promised a roof terrace on the website, and came in time to watch the sunset on my birthday, but they wouldn’t seat us there and we were relegated to what looked like a back garden with a few tables hastily thrown in it. Finally, as we walked out we saw that one of the inside rooms was being used as a restaurant, which I’m pretty sure is illegal now. My curry was nice, but nothing about this place was worth what we had to pay for it and we left upset. Take your business somewhere else :)
We were not sure what to expect at first when looking from the outside but what a wonderful surprise when we entered. The outside area to the rear is lovely. The service from start to finish was excellent and the food spectacular. Next time we are in Bath it will be top of our list.
Slow service, Poorly trained staff, Outdoor flooring was sticky. There was no music being played making for a horrible, quiet atmosphere. Poor experience, especially for the price. Personally would’ve rather stayed at home and ordered a takeaway. Automatically adding a 10% gratitude should honestly be a crime for this place.
Excellent! Wonderful food! Highly recommend.
Lovely staff and service, food could be better and in turn better value for the price you pay.
Perfect view and amazing food
You need to visit Mantra - this isn’t your typical Indian! The food tasted amazing and the service was great. I recommend getting a dosa and the hyperbadi medium chicken.
Thank you very much for your feedback and thanks for your support at this time. Thanks for giving us 5 stars. I am glad you liked our food and service. We look forward to serving you soon. Kind Regards, Mantra
Great attentive staff!! Had the set menu and it was great.
Would definitely go back again.
The food was great and best butter chicken I’ve had in a long time!
Best Indian in Bath for something different and delicious.,Tables a bit close together for Covid regulations. Table next to us about 3 ft away so social distancing with strangers not possible.
Very disappointing. Service is terrible. Everyone needs training. Shame as the starters were amazing, but after waiting over an hour for our mains, we left.
One of the service staff dropped so much wax on to my leather jacket when moving a table, and never even apologised. Just carried on doing what he was doing
We waited for 10 minutes to be seated, with other people. No adherence to physical distancing.
We asked for all of our food to come out at the same time; it did not.
The table next to us waited 25 mins for a beer and cocktail.
We were really looking forward to eating there, and it spoilt our night
Huge shame, as honestly it was one of the nicest starters I’ve had in a while.
Maybe worth checking out if you go when they aren’t busy, as they don’t know how to run a busy restaurant unfortunately
Made very welcome, excellent service, very friendly staff.
Definitely recommend booking this restaurant
Literally the best Indian food I have ever experienced and I’ve had a few! The food was flavoursome yet extremely light and all four diners agree. A highlight was the gin-soaked tandoor prawns. Very friendly service too.
Very slow service and some of the food was good, some was awful
Booked for 12 when it was supposed to open but had to wait 10-15 in the doorway for them to let us in. Took another 30-40 minutes for food to arrive but thankfully the food was excellent, maybe worth booking a little after the restaurant is meant to open
We were in Bath on a Monday and were very limited regarding places accepting on line bookings other than the big chains.
Mantra surpassed all our expectations. Service was quick and friendly with useful assistance on menu choices.
Excellent food across the board. I'd highly recommend Mantra for lovely Indian food in Bath.
The food was incredible. The team at Mantra were all so friendly. We will be back!
Food was great, but we were asked to vacate our 7pm booking table at 8pm because they had another booking, even though we still had a glass of wine each. The server offered to let us pour the wine back in the bottle and take the bottle with us...
Favourite Indian restaurant in Bath!
Great food with a nice view out the back . Really enjoyed it
Great food but it’s always a let down on the service
Terrible. Booked a table for 22:15 on open table to turn up and be told they close at 22:00 so it’s impossible, even though the restaurant confirmed the booking. Then got told I was aggressive and got mobbed by the staff as I wanted my taxi fare back in return for the mistake. Ended up with my £10 and a takeaway from a local friendly Indian.
Very slow service and dishes missed but superb food!
We had not been here before the staff was very friendly and helpful. They advised use on having several starters to have instead of a main so that we could try lots of different things to see different types of food
We will definitely be going back
Nice Indian restaurant with terrace. Food was a bit spicy for me but I only like mild things. There was an extra charge of 10% on our wine for some reason and 4. 95 for 3 poppadoms seemed expensive. Not to mention the ice cream, same price. Waitress was nice but service was very slow. Mixed bag.
Great food and friendly staff. Would highly recommend the masala dosa!
Reservation booked for 8pm, was not seated until after 9pm and there were others who had 8pm reservations that were kept waiting even longer and left out of frustration. The service following on from this was not great, had to grab the attention of staff to get menus, drinks, order food.
Had the set menu, the food was absolutely outstanding and saved the evening.
Should of not been part of Eat Out to Help our - poor service, not COVID compliant.
They had overbooked on an Eat Out to Help Out day and we were waiting outside for forty minutes despite booking a table, long wait on food but when it arrived it was so delicious we forgot all about the wait. Recommend going on a quieter night.
Great food, great staff and good value. Will be back.

Great food Gorgeous View friendly staff, would recommend
Was OK without being outstanding. Some food was better than others, Dosa very good would return just for this dish, lamb dishes average. Would recommend for an informal lunch / dinner. Lacked ambience but probably due to location of table in a small area between kitchen and lower dining area, other areas are probably much better
We had the £25 set menu... all delicious. Our table was on the top floor by the terrace/sliding doors, good amount of air flow!
Pleased to see staff wearing masks and gloves when serving, although some tables seemed to be a little closer together than I would have thought would be ideal. (May I suggest that the middle table of the row of 3 'tables for 2' should not be used at present?)
Overall, really enjoyed our meal, thanks.
Great food and felt safe with screens and staff in masks
Excellent service and food. Set menu sharer was delicious.
Will definitely be back!
