Great food and great service in the middle of shopping paradise off Route 4 in Paramus NJ. We ordered unusual appetizers like Lasuni Gobi (garlic cauliflower) and corn fritters. an unusual treat for an Indian restaurant. Followed by Kalongi Paneer (spice cottage cheese) Dum Aloo and chicken biryani. Yummm. All perfectly spiced. only criticism about the place is that it... More

We ordered delivery on four different occasions. The food was nice and tasty. However, the quality of naan could be improved.

From the word go Sam (the manager) was very friendly, helpful and flexible for our event. Overall our event was a great success, we had 75+ people... More

We love Indian restaurants, the safe haven for the vegetarians. Mantra distinguished itself far apart from the other Indian restaurants. It is a strong player among upscale restaurants in NJ/NYC area. An elegant dining area, soft jazz in the background, excellent service, and modern Indian cuisine. Yes, it is somehow different from the food we have eaten in India, which... More

Visited Mantra over the Easter weekend and they put on a first class buffet spread. Food was absolutely delicious and well worth the visit. Compliments to the chef and staff who provided excellent service.

Was thinking I would not return here as my previous visit was a disappointment as the entire staff that I was used to was no longer there. Everything that day was just horrible, including the food. I was in the area a couple of weeks ago and decided to go back and was overjoyed to see Sam. Everyone else in... More
