Mantra’s Head Chef Gamer Rawat engages eaters with an extensive menu of both contemporary and traditional Indian cuisine. Potatoes and peas fill the deep recesses of warm, deep-fried samosas, and lettuce wraps cradle tandoori mushrooms, paneer, and sprouts. Transported to tables via an utterly silent elephant in the room, entrees satisfy appetites via lamb vindaloo’s spicy sauces and murgh tikka masala’s ginger- and garlic-marinated tandoori chicken.

Finally, delectable desserts assuage sweet teeth with mango-flavored mousse, milk dumplings in rose-flavored syrups, or a carrot pudding sculpted into the diner’s favorite geographical region. Sleek tables and chairs parade their modern lines across the restaurant’s elegant dining room. A vibrant red floor and energetic pink mural introduce splashes of color and help to create an ideal setting for a first date, second platonic dinner, or third attempt to find lukewarm porridge.

Mantra

To the chefs at Mantra, atmosphere is nearly as important as taste. That’s why they serve contemporary and traditional Indian cuisine against a vibrant red floor, energetic pink mural, and eclectic array of artwork. Potatoes and peas fill the deep recesses of warm, deep-fried samosas, and lettuce wraps cradle tandoori mushrooms, paneer, and sprouts. Transported to tables via an utterly silent elephant in the room, entrees satisfy appetites via lamb vindaloo's spicy sauces and murgh tikka masala's ginger-and-garlic-marinated tandoori chicken. Finally, delectable desserts assuage sweet teeth with mango-flavored mousse, milk dumplings in rose-flavored syrups, or a carrot pudding sculpted into the diner's favorite geographical region. Sleek tables and chairs parade their modern lines across the restaurant's elegant dining room, which makes for an ideal setting for a first date, second platonic dinner, or third attempt to find lukewarm porridge.

Reservations are a good idea because the space is pretty small.

Great food and service love this resaurant

Very tasty Indian food. Good, attentive service. Nice atmosphere. A little off the beaten path (Glenwood Ave South) so easy to find parking.
