Mantra

Though Mantra Head Chef Purvesh Patel is known for his creative takes on Indian cuisine—including chaat, or snack food, garnished with tender lobster meat—his careful, French-inspired cooking also leaves its mark on the menu's traditional entrees. "Each ingredient seemed to have bathed for just the right number of hours in its yogurt marinade; each was precisely cooked; and each carried a heady overtone of spices," a New York Times food writer recalled of a tandoori dish in 2008. In contrast to these subtle flavors, Mantra's presentation often has theatrical flair; chefs chop chaat dishes tableside and set a banana flambé dessert ablaze with rum.

Both locations' sleek dining rooms also go for drama with bold, modern decor. In Jersey City, red accents simmer against warm-toned walls. Next to the Paramus spot's mosaic-tiled bar, live flames dance on the low wall between the dining room and lounge, upping the “amazement factor” for Cody Kendall of the Star-Ledger.

Reviews

The decor is truly awesome, and the restaurant even has a small but trendy lounge, you can sit and sip cocktails in.

It makes me proud to see an Indian restaurant do Indian food with such class and a twist. Their take on Indian cuisine is very interesting.

    “This some of the best Indian food I've ever enjoyed. Service is excellent without being overbearing. Food is freshly and wonderfully prepared. Presentation is first rate. If you're new to Indian food and concerned about it being too spicey, you can always ask them to prepare a dish very mild.”

  • “Food and service were excellent”

  • “Go early if you can. We got there a little earlier than we normally would and by the time we left the restaurant was packed.”
