We come here often and always feel very welcome. The staff is making sure that everything is ok. The food is to us like heaven and the indian wine is delicious.
We often have the Daal soup, onion Bhaji and the Thali paneer, it's delicious!
Mantra is a little restaurant where it kind of feels like home!
Since one year i don't eat meat anymore and there are lots of choices for vegetarian people is my opinion.

The "Mantra" in Arnhem is to put it simply, spot on!
I travel to Arnhem on a twice yearly basis and often I will visit this restaurant.
The food is consistently of a high standard and the staff are always welcoming with a service that is always of a very good standard.
On this visit I had the "Chicken Thali" which although a fairly simple meal was very well presented and totally enjoyable.
The prices are good and the drinks are fine.
If you are stuck for where to go, give this place a try. You wont be disappointed.

We are an Indian family residing in Dubai, UAE. and a visit to MANTRA in Arnhem was the best thing that could have happened to us.
MANTRA no doubt is one of the best Indian restaurant anywhere in this region. We have tried many such Indian restaurants in Netherlands but Mantra was so different, unique and truly out of the world. Mouth watering Indian spread, presented and served in a true Indian style. Prior to discovering Mantra, most of the restaurants serving Indian cuisine in and around Amsterdam and Arnhem are not run by Indians and therefore with the real flavours missing the food available can't be labelled truly as authentic Indian. When we visited MANTRA for the first time, we felt like that we were in India and having the most amazing food. The decor and the ambience adds more to the wonderful experience one could expect. With a reasonable price line one could sit comfortably and enjoy every bite of the mouthwatering succulent kebabs and grills especially the chicken tikka and daal. Definitely a true reflection of Indian hospitality.
Chic ethnic restaurant, fantastic ambience, great food, first class service! Amazing experience and the food was one of the best we had ever had out of India. Would highly recommend and hope to go back there some day soon !!

"Mantra" which means MAGIC in Hindi..and the food is actually Magic here..so far from home land yet so close to heart..the owner cum manager of the place Mousumi Ghosh handles the place alone with the help of just one server..and the most amazing part is the entire kitchen is managed by just one staff..from prep to cooking all done by one chef...hats off to you chef
The restaurant opens only for dinner and you will not get a place without reservation..
I was craving to have home style Indian food and here it goes..home style chappatis, plain dal, chicken curry, shrimp..and everything was so perfect and delicious and well presented
Me being a chef by myself was wondering how could this chef do so many things my himself..so went inside the kitchen and applauded the chef personally
Great job Mousumi Ghosh..your magic Mantra rocks
Looking forward for the next visit again

Thank Bharat D
