Food was nice and service attentive. We had less than an hour before a show and the owner helped in choosing the right dishes to fit into our time frame. We had the palak paneer, chicken curry and kashmir lamb. Courses were served with rice or nan. The kitchen is open to the restaurant so, unfortunately, if sitting at the... More

Nice Indian restaurant serving very good Indian food with friendly staff. It seems to be a popular place. On both days we went the restaurant was crowded and had to wait quite some time to get what we ordered. But the food was worth the wait. I forgot my phone and the charming lady serving the food came running out... More

Went to Mantra with my son, late on Sunday evening. We were very well received, with no rush. The food was excellent, the portions generous and the stuff friendly. At 17 -18 Euros per portion is a bit expensive, but the naan or rice is included. A very nice meal, the best by far in Arnhem. Will recommend and intend... More

I have a food allergy. When making the reservation I informed the restaurant. They were great. Prepared my meal ahead of time, separated from the other dishes just to be sure. The food was delicious and very affordable. I had lamb jalfrezi. Easily one of, if not the best restaurants I've been to in arnhem. We'll be back again soon.

Arrived time: around 1740 (they had a table occupied at that time plus a couple of reserved tables) By 1830, more customer kept flooding in and it was pretty much full house then. They had to turn some customers away. Reserve if you can't come early! Atmosphere: great, dim lights, candles, indian music, lots of nice indian related decorations and... More

I've eaten to all Indian Resto in Arnhem and Mantra happens to have the best tasting chicken madras - which you may ask them... More
