I would not recomend this restaurant at all. We had a table booked for 8.00 but didnt get seated until 8.30. The food was cold, the popadoms were soggy and the manager was rude and really didnt seem to care when we complained.

Very disappointed with food and service.
When first opened food was excellent and varied from the usual Indian restaurants. Now very same. It’s clear they are concentrating on the takeaway market. Will
Not be going back

Terrific quality! I didn’t see anything too exotic on the menu - lots of the usual staples - but everything was superbly cooked. I especially appreciated being encouraged to eat the (thin, light) garlic naan immediately, fresh from the tandoor- it made a difference!

It was nice. Outdoor seating would have been great as it has a nice view of path. This was not a high spec restaurant, but rather just equivalent of going to your local Indian restaurant for a eat in instead of a take out. We had a nice time - but we were in and out in less than an hour.

Great food. Very friendly staff, who are very proud of their restaurant. Did seem a little understaffed though and consequently had to wait quite a while for the food, perhaps take slightly less bookings to ensure you can serve everyone.
Would definitely recommend though, no problems eating there again.

An hour and a quarter wait for starters.

Seated after short wait
Order taken 0:20 after seating
Wine arrives arrives at table 0:25
Poppadoms served 0:27
Poppadoms finished 0:30
Wine glasses arrive at table 0:35
Starters appear 1:15
Main arrived at table 1:17!!!!

Atmosphere was terrible due to so many people waiting for food/service. Waiting staff working flat out but just couldn’t cope with the numbers booked in and it really wasn’t their fault. Management/owners really need to sort their act out.

Food was excellent.

What a pleasant surprise to find this restaurant in Bath. After messing up the reservation for my Husbands Birthday, I found Mantra last minute in Open table. It was all that we needed for. Great food, very tasty and well presented. Friendly staff. And we set on a nice patio overlooking Bath. A great way to spend Sunday afternoon and celebrate my husband. Will definitely go back.

I don’t understand how they price this place as if it’s a top tier restaurant. Having to pay separately for rice and naan meant that altogether my curry costed £20 - a crazy price for a (really small) curry - and the coconut rice was just rice with dessicated coconut mixed in instead of being creamy and steamed in coconut milk. The vegetarian platter was tiny for “£15” worth (2 samosas, 2 pieces of paneer, some veggies and a little sauce). The glasses were dirty. All of the poppadom sauce loiked straight out of a packet (fiver). The cocktail was so overly sweet, it tasted like an energy drink. One of our starters arrived 15 mins after the other. We were promised a roof terrace on the website, and came in time to watch the sunset on my birthday, but they wouldn’t seat us there and we were relegated to what looked like a back garden with a few tables hastily thrown in it. Finally, as we walked out we saw that one of the inside rooms was being used as a restaurant, which I’m pretty sure is illegal now. My curry was nice, but nothing about this place was worth what we had to pay for it and we left upset. Take your business somewhere else :)

We were not sure what to expect at first when looking from the outside but what a wonderful surprise when we entered. The outside area to the rear is lovely. The service from start to finish was excellent and the food spectacular. Next time we are in Bath it will be top of our list.

Slow service, Poorly trained staff, Outdoor flooring was sticky. There was no music being played making for a horrible, quiet atmosphere. Poor experience, especially for the price. Personally would’ve rather stayed at home and ordered a takeaway. Automatically adding a 10% gratitude should honestly be a crime for this place.

You need to visit Mantra - this isn’t your typical Indian! The food tasted amazing and the service was great. I recommend getting a dosa and the hyperbadi medium chicken.

Very disappointing. Service is terrible. Everyone needs training. Shame as the starters were amazing, but after waiting over an hour for our mains, we left.

One of the service staff dropped so much wax on to my leather jacket when moving a table, and never even apologised. Just carried on doing what he was doing

We waited for 10 minutes to be seated, with other people. No adherence to physical distancing.

We asked for all of our food to come out at the same time; it did not.

The table next to us waited 25 mins for a beer and cocktail.

We were really looking forward to eating there, and it spoilt our night

Huge shame, as honestly it was one of the nicest starters I’ve had in a while.

Maybe worth checking out if you go when they aren’t busy, as they don’t know how to run a busy restaurant unfortunately

Literally the best Indian food I have ever experienced and I’ve had a few! The food was flavoursome yet extremely light and all four diners agree. A highlight was the gin-soaked tandoor prawns. Very friendly service too.

Booked for 12 when it was supposed to open but had to wait 10-15 in the doorway for them to let us in. Took another 30-40 minutes for food to arrive but thankfully the food was excellent, maybe worth booking a little after the restaurant is meant to open

We were in Bath on a Monday and were very limited regarding places accepting on line bookings other than the big chains.

Mantra surpassed all our expectations. Service was quick and friendly with useful assistance on menu choices.

Excellent food across the board. I'd highly recommend Mantra for lovely Indian food in Bath.

Food was great, but we were asked to vacate our 7pm booking table at 8pm because they had another booking, even though we still had a glass of wine each. The server offered to let us pour the wine back in the bottle and take the bottle with us...

Terrible. Booked a table for 22:15 on open table to turn up and be told they close at 22:00 so it’s impossible, even though the restaurant confirmed the booking. Then got told I was aggressive and got mobbed by the staff as I wanted my taxi fare back in return for the mistake. Ended up with my £10 and a takeaway from a local friendly Indian.

Nice Indian restaurant with terrace. Food was a bit spicy for me but I only like mild things. There was an extra charge of 10% on our wine for some reason and 4. 95 for 3 poppadoms seemed expensive. Not to mention the ice cream, same price. Waitress was nice but service was very slow. Mixed bag.
