Have been here a couple of times and took some clients to experience authentic indian food. Though major of the staff was actually Nepali, they did dish up some good Indian food. The price is reasonable too and one can have a good time for...More

The fusion cuisine offered here was surprisingly good however our waiter is what made the experience a bit sour. She was bitter and seemed like she would rather be anywhere but there. The ambiance was simply delightful and neat. Very romantic if that is what...More

Cocktails were superb - my Tamarind Margarita (and I am a purist who normally likes the Classic Margarita)was spectacular. We ordered solely from the Naan Bar Menu - fusion food - because we wanted something different to regular Indian food (which we cook at home...More

Not your typical Indian food, but that's what makes Mantra more appealing to lunch crowds. Well, that and very reasonably priced all you can eat. All that in one of the coolest lounges in Boston.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
