Mantra - Bath

5 Bladud Buildings, Bath BA1 5LS
$$$ Indian Recommended New Editor's Pick

We at Mantra have reinvented Indian food in a progressive way. The dishes are healthily packed with flavour, crunch, punch, and zing offering plenty of choice to vegetarians and vegans. The menus are inspired by seasonal ingredients, the freshest produce, deliciously healthy ideas bringing amazing diversity of India’s regional cuisines and childhood street food memories offering plenty of choices to cater to all types of customers.

Indulge in traditional Indian cuisine with us. Enjoy a lavish menu handcrafted by our experienced chefs and submerge yourself in the rich tastes and flavours of the north as well as south Indian cuisine presented and prepared in a progressive technique.

It's a known scientific fact that Indian food tastes good! Thanks to the abundance of spices and flavours. Indian cuisine offers plenty of variety with dishes ranging from North to South and sometimes by the kitchen to kitchen. Punjabi, Bengali, Rajasthani, Goan, Gujarati, and Maharashtrian are just the tip of the delicious iceberg.

The word “curry” has much more to offer than just an oversimplification of an Indian cuisine coined by the English. It uses a variety of spices (masalas) all individually added as you cook so that the mixture is much more unique and varying depending on the region and sometimes by the specific kitchen.

Right food, a Mantra for Healthy Life!!!

Loved the delicious various dishes on the menu as they are so fresh and tasty. I tend to have 2 or 3 small dishes and mix it up with rice as I can never decide on one and never disappointed. Im veggie and partner eats meat so we’ve tried lots of different things on the menu too. My top favourite is the Okra and my partners is Chicken 65! Amazing work and lovely Team. Thank you all! X

First time at this restaurant and will definitely return. We understood that they had a huge demand on the place immediately after lockdown and understandably became overwhelmed. Everything went swimmingly for our visit. We haven't had food like this since being in India. As we were leaving Marco Pierre White was coming in which must say something! Highly recommended.

Long time since we’ve eaten at Mantra and it seemed even better than before. I tried the new fenugreek chicken which was a bit creamy for my taste but the Chennai chicken was terrific: spicy and full of flavour. Left a real tickle on the tongue. Will be back soon.
