Mantra offers a very good selection of vegetarian and meat entree options and they are located next to a parking ramp so you shouldn't have a problem finding a place to park. Weekends are free for a two hour window, leaving you plenty of time for dining. The service was very good, as was the cheese naan and both of... More

Me and my friends visited Mantra during our business trip in Davenport. The food was fresh and delicious, variety of options for vegan and vegetarian. Prices are very reasonable too.

We have ate here a few times, usually during the lunch buffet. They do not have a large selection on the buffet, but what is on the buffet is very good. Tandori chicken that is roasted but not dried out, warm naan, different vegetable dishes, etc. Service is good and quick and best of all the prices can't be beat... More

Our family has enjoyed this cook's cooking for years. We lived in India for many years and appreciate the authentic cooking rather than Americanized Indian food that we get at other establishments. The Thursday lunch buffet is a favorite of mine.

First time having Indian food, and i give it two thumbs up. The place has a good atmosphere, but also a big menu for those who like variety. I had the mild rogan Josh and absolutely loved it.

I've been west coast - east coast and over seas. Simply put this is the best Indian Cuisine (Including Iowa City etc.) for 200 miles in diameter. The lunch buffet is fittingly limited with only Tandoori Chicken as meat, but priced very moderately at $11.00 I believe. The service and quality deems a minimum tip of 20% in my opinion.... More

The food here is good and fairly priced.The mango lassi was tasty and generously sized. Cocktails are around $6. I liked the flavor of the Bombay Mojito, but it would have been better if it was muddled as stated on the menu rather than blended (resulted in lots of small pieces of dry stem messing up the texture). The waiter... More

My husband and I try out Indian restaurants whenever we visit other cities and time and time again we have decided the best Indian food is right here in our backyard...at Mantra. The staff is wonderful, food is always delicious (even when we've brought groups of 10-15 friends with us or had my husbands birthday party catered upstairs) and they... More

Stopped on a cross country trip for lunch buffet. The selection was a bit small, and the only meat they had was chicken, but everything was very well prepared and very tasty. For about $10 it was a great value!
