Service was attentive and always with a smile. Food was excellent. A group dinner afforded us opportunity to order and taste a multitude of dishes. Definitely will dine here again.

We arrived for a 6:30 dinner but were not served any food for 1/2 hour. The food was excellent. The server was pleasant. The desserts were not served at the same time so my husband ate while I watched. It was kulfi and would have melted.
We sat in a booth at the back of the restaurant. Each time anyone came through the door, there was a cold draft right through to where we sat.
By the end the modern Indian music became loud and we were ready to go. Not sure if we will return.

Comfortable trendy dining room. Booth for 2 a bit small if sharing dishes the table doesn't have enough room for the plates. All the food was delicious especially Butter chicken bao and garlic prawns lamb chops and biriyani. Server was friendly and you can choose level of spice on certain dishes. Good selection of wine beer and cocktails.

I would recommend this restaurant. The service was outstanding, my server really made it a wonderful experience. I did have a hair in my food, i was of course unimpressed, however, my server handled it very well, and I left pleased with my experience at the restaurant.

So I can't say enough about the food - we've tried something new each and every time we've visited and haven't been let down. Now I'm not sure what happened this evening but the service was terrible ( what was even more disappointing was we were served by the owner who presented herself in joggers! !l simple things like water took forever and in addition needed to be brought to the attention of staff ) also we brought a cake (we were celebrating a birthday) and the faculty didn't have a proper knife to cut the cake and were told to use th butter knife. Either way we will be back for the food and hope we don't get served by the same staff .

We enjoyed and excellent Winterlicious lunch. Every course was flavourful and authentic. The accompanying fresh, hot naan was the perfect texture. The draft Cheetah Indian Lager goes great with the food. We'll be back soon!

Decent menu but seemed a little overpriced for the portions. The server tried to sell us on several items on the menu even though we explained we have no interest.

Sunny provided us with what could possibly be the best service we’ve experienced at a restaurant. Food is on point, ambiance is great, but he’s the reason we keep coming back! Ask for him, he’ll elevate the experience in every way. Thanks Sunny!

I have been to Mantra a number of times. Each time, the food quality is exceptional! Today I brought my family for the first time. We all enjoyed our dishes and they said that they would definitely come back again. I want to say a special thank you to our server, Pulkit, he went out of his way to answer our questions, ensure that we were happy and treated my parents with a complimentary dessert for their anniversary. That's service!

Great Indian Gastropub with excellent cocktails.. Re the food it was surprisingly good but maybe a bit too salty (I am a salt lover so this means super salty). Definitely plan on coming back and trying this time also the biryani with the naan topper.

Mantra is my new favourite Indian restaurant! We booked a table for 4 people (and a baby), mid-afternoon on Saturday, so it was quiet. The ambiance was cozy and modern with high ceilings and modern Indian music playing in the background. The service was wonderful and the server helped us order, as it was our first visit. We had appys and shared 3 entrees. We all found the food to be extremely flavourful. It was just the right amount of heat where it doesn't overpower the flavour. Every dish tasted different. The chef is a genius! My favourite entree was the lamb rogan josh and favourite appy was the To-Die-For Samosas (omg, the pastry!) I am sure we will be back in the next few weeks for another feast. We are so glad that we found this place!

I come here very often! I love how it’s so consistent and you always know it’s going to a good meal! The owner is usually there and always comes by to ask how everything is going. I always feel like I’m at home. They’re always adding new things to the menu and drink specials depending on the season. My favourite is the mango mule. It’s a nice intimate place and I always recommend all my friends here when they ask for a nice place to have some Indian food.
I always end up leaving here with leftovers. You never realize how much food there is until your eating and stuffed.
