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!!!

The food and staff attention to detail was excellent. I would highly recommend Mantra for an Indian meal that is more than your standard Indian restaurant. When visiting Bath again will not hesitate to return.

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.

Being from out of town we were concerned about safety on our first “staycation” but we had nothing to worry about here! Tables spaced and semi-outside due to bifold doors open to circulate air accompanied by all staff wearing masks gloves and using sanitizer (readily available around restaurant) ... food was great ... I mean really authentic and someone obviously knows how to use spices who cooks here. The menu was not your typical korma and madras, it was well thought out and worth looking at before you go if you are just after Bhuna and chips. Starters arrived swiftly and were well presented. Onion bhajis were small, light and tasty not oversized grease balls. The lamb shish was spiced to perfection. For main the butter chicken was warming and full of flavour with great spicing, and the lamb rogan josh was mild but again totally tasty. The mushroom rice had been well cooked and was not an afterthought. We had to wait a while for our mains but they were worth it. Would definitely come back
