    The food was sooooo delicious and the waitress was so friendly. She was a breath of fresh air. I had the Passanda Chicken, which was the most tasty indian dish I have had in Bath.

    Very pleasant dining area with indoor, enclosed sunroom and outdoor seating. Creative Indian cuisine with excellent seasoning, great baked goods and basmati rice and a wide range of dishes. Good timing for multiple courses.

    The service was virtually non existent. Several tables were served before us even though they arrived much later! The food was just not the same. The lamb Rohan Josh was dry. It was mutton they had been stewed for hours. There was no sign of peppers, onions, tomatoes etc… just mush. We had to keep asking for everything - even drinks. It was really bad. We are guessing that the place has changed hands and has new parents as it was all unrecognisable from before. We won’t be going back.

    Won’t be going back any time soon. Menu has really paired back and no longer ‘progressive’. Service was poor- the restaurant was very quiet at 6pm and yet 5 waiting staff didn’t come to see if we wanted more drinks, preferring to chat at the bar. Cocktails are cheap but out of a machine. We were served the wrong starters, but staff insisted that the salmon in front of me was lamb chops, until I cut into it to prove that it was salmon! Meanwhile my pescatarian partner was served chicken. Grumpy staff reluctantly removed the service automatically added to the bill, when I said I was unhappy with service we’d received and then ignored us as we left. Poor.

    Initial impression was restaurant was closed as no one in front area and no one to greet. However food was good but the cost was £80 and we only had two beers so we both were surprised at the cost.

    Service was below average: very slow; no knowledge of ingredients; wines not opened but just put on table; we were asked to move upstairs at 10.30 and then told to leave at 11.30 (quite rude). Food was average: poppadoms were stale; main courses tasty but average.

    Really nice restaurant, great food and really lovely service. The bill was brought straight after the main without me asking for it so sadly no dessert offered which would have rounded off the evening perfectly and I'm still debating whether this was efficient or rushing us out, but I cannot fault the rest of the experience and I would definitely return if I'm ever in Bath again.

    We went to Mantra on NYE. Sat downstairs next to a very large party (which I think was the problem). It took us well over half an hour to get a drink and then a longer time to get food, at which point our starters and mains were brought altogether. Too much food to eat in one hit. Food was ok when it arrived, but not a great experience.

    Modern Indian but certainly different in quality to most. Food was excellent quality and good value. A mistake was made in serving a whole dish but this was rectified and the wrong and original order were provided. Relaxed and informal environment.

    Very rude restaurant owner I was one of a group of 6 ladies in our 40's and 50's that visited this restaurant this weekend. I had booked a table via open table and had a booking accepted for 7.30pm. When we arrived it was clear that the restaurant was busy and that the front of house waiter was a bit stressed. When I asked if we would be ok for our table he told me that he would need to move some things around but if we waited 15 minutes we would be fine. We sat down to wait, we were not offered a drink whilst we waited. One of our party went to ask staff if we could have a drink whilst we waited and was told by the restaurant owner that we could not have a table, someone else had booked before us and that we needed to leave immediately. Slightly shocked by this I then went to speak with the restaurant owner as I had made the booking. He approached me in an aggressive manner and when I asked why someone else's booking was more valid than mine he began to shout at me. I walked off through the restaurant during which time the restaurant owner continued to shout at me and the rest of our party. This rudeness and outright aggression came out of nowhere and at no point had anyone in our party been rude or raised their voice. However, after being shouted at in a packed restaurant by someone that was supposed to want people to spend their hard earnt money there, I did tell him that he was a very rude man. I have been to many restaurants in this country and internationally and I have never experienced aggression and rudeness like this, ever! If there was a zero rating I would give it. Fortunately, after trying lots of restaurants in Bath we came across a lovely, small, family run restaurant where the owner and staff could not do enough for us. Unless you want to be shouted at, avoid this restaurant at all costs!

    Bizarre dining experience. We arrived to find lots of people queuing who had booked tables but were being told by the manager/owner that they hadn't booked far enough in advance to actually get the table, so he wouldn't be accepting them. He ended up shouting at several customers and chasing them out of the restaurant daring them to leave bad reviews. Not the welcoming start to the evening we'd hoped and he continued to bustle around the restaurant spreading tension and rudeness. Food was fine but the atmosphere was stressed and really unpleasant.

    I organise package holidays, and took a group of 8 to mantra. Everyone in the group said it’s the best Indian they’ve had. The restaurant was busy but the staff were still attentive and friendly. 100% recommend, will definitely be visiting again when I come back to bath. Toby Highway adventures

    Unfortunately my favourite dish the Dosa was not available because the chef who makes them was on holiday. To be honest that is why I returned so was disappointed. I think he is back in a couple of weeks. My other half enjoyed his lamb chop starter and a chicken dish but my vegetable biriyani was boring .The popadoms we’re a bit chewy. I know they normally produce better, we have been 3 times before and we will go again.
