Best Indian food in Corona. Tasty North Indian traditional food. Mouthwatering Naan and flavour. This location is dingy and feels like a hole in the wall. Wish they can again move to a nice; bright; clean location. The chairs and tables are not ideal either. This restaurant has a lot of potential but the location and decor and interior is... More

For many years now our favorite Indian restaurant was Koyla in Rancho Cucamonga. We would eat there at least once or twice a month. We really liked it and still do. We had taken many of our friends there to introduce them to Indian cuisine. Yet our Indian friend said he had found a better buffet in Corona called the... More

There are a lot of dishes with cheeses in them, which if they're not labeled as such can be a problem for many people. My water glass sat empty almost half the meal while the responsible server was at the counter talking to the lady at the register. $10 lunch buffet would be great if there were less cheese and...

As an Indian I find most Indian restaurants miss the mark of flavor. Mantra is not one of those restaurants. The flavors are spot on and well balanced. Its also the only Indian restaurant that my mother likes. She is an expert cook and generally hates eating out at Indian restaurants. The service staff are polite and prompt. The food... More

The clientele, the music, the bottles at the bar, and the Mukhwhas let you know the food is going to be good-it is. Went with a party and ordered family style. Good curries, tandoori, and all the other goodies. Not in love with the thin sort of Nan that came as an appetizer but the good puffy stuff came out... More

In a better location this indian restaurant is located across from another indian restaurant. Easy to find parking closeby. The place has decent decor and has a bar scene. Buffet was little above average. Some things like naan and tamarind chutney with tikis were delicious. Rest of the food just average. The variety of food was also limited to simple... More

Came here for a lunch meeting, good selection, not too spicy, good flavors. Decor is good, and wait staff is attentive. Liked it so much, came back the next week. Food is not greasy, and curries are not overwhelming. It seems like they rotate some of the buffet items, so it won't be the same thing every day.

This restaurant is so delicious! The naam bread is so scrumptious! There are no words, I really don't like Indian food, but this is authentic and delicious!

They have recently relocated to 712 N. Main St., Corona. We immediately noticed the elegant East Indian decorations, clean modern lines, everything immaculate. The buffet is attractively presented: salad ingredients, entrees, vegetarian dishes, and desserts. I especially enjoyed the goat curry, delicate, very tender, tasty, and mildly seasoned. Chicken masala, tandoori, and chicken chilli were all wonderful; the chef has... More
