Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The food was nice, but any restaurant that adds a tip as a line item on the bill gets a 1 star review. This is a disgusting Americanism and needs to stop. I left a tip too, not realising it was already on the bill...- 18% no less! It was an extra £30! We wont ever return.More

Service was really poor, very slow and had to send my starter back as it took so long to come we had just shared the starter which turned up. It took approx 1 hour before the mains arrived. They were fine. Pricing continues to rise...here, but unfortunately the service has gone the other direction. We complained and then the bill turned up with a service charge included which was then removed at my request. You can't charge for poor service. Recent reviews show that we aren't the only people who have been disappointed. Something must have changed with management or staffing as this place used to be top notch.More

Very disappointed. We've been here a number of times and enjoyed our visits and food but this time was very different. The food was bland, and the portions small. Tempura King prawns starter at £12 for 2 prawns, 4 pieces but the prawns had been...cut lengthways and battered, 4 bbq ribs @ £10 hardly any meat on them. 2 mains, sweet and sour chicken and chicken with cashews, far too much veg, i.e. Carrots and not enough meat.

I have visited here several times with my wife and will be doing so again after our latest lunch experience.The chicken satay and salt and chilli spare rib starters were fresh and delicious. We shared crispy belly pork with egg fried rice for main washed...down with some nice Sauvignon Blanc. Special thanks to our server Bodi who was so friendly and helpful throughout. Would not hesitate to recommend if you like top class Thai food and service in a lovely setting.More

We visited this based on previous reviews for a special sunday lunch. Staff are friendly and polite and decor is nice. Food is dull tasting and very expensive for what is served in qualiy and taste. We set hot plates about 20mins before our mains,...and some sides (rice) did not appear for another 15 mins after the mains. The consisted of just some grated carrot, papaya and too much chilli sauce, served with cucumber sliced and a big chunk of cabbage. No way is this the same quality of tasty food I have experienced in Bangkok and Northern Thailand.More

Pretty average. Food looked good as was the Panang sauce but the beef was fatty. Would have expected it to be cheaper for such a poor cut of meat. Some of the salt and chilli ribs were dry and burnt in places and had no...real flavor. Satay chicken skewers were the best part of the evening. I wouldn't be returning in a hurry and like another rcent reviewer, I too would have enjoyed the local takeaway more. If I'm paying a little more I'm expecting a little more.More

A beautiful Thai restaurant, styled traditionally. Spotlessly clean. A limited number of free car parking spaces right outside or next door to a multi-storey. Service was very professional and polite. Food was delicious! Great value lunch menu with two courses and a drink (includes Prosecco)...for I think £23. We have been before and will keep coming backMore

Getting physically robbed in Spain was more dignified than the robbery that took place after eating this meal. Firstly, £12 for 3 small pieces of chewy (not fresh) squid, which was bulked out with soggy fried courgette to try and somehow make it look like...less of a pi$$take. Around the same price for 4, unseasoned, bang average prawns. Then the Thai Basil noodles which I usually get at any Thai were almost inedible, it tasted like Sambuca for reasons unknown. The only thing that was ok was the Thai Green curry. Average service. I've had much better Thai meals for half the price around Newcastle. To be honest I would of much preferred the local Chinese.More

All the food was super tasty from start to finish. We had the duck spring rolls and pork skewer starters which I shared with my husband and I had the king prawn pad Thai for my main dish. I would highly recommend both! I have...a severe peanut allergy which wasn’t an issue at all, the service was also great. Hopefully we will be back soon!More

I try to make it to Mantra whenever I’m in Newcastle, been at least 15 times over the years. Not cheap but the quality of food is exceptional, tried a few other Thais in Newcastle and they don’t even come close. Pad Thai at Mantra...I’d say is hard to beat in the UK.More

First visit to Mantras but definitely not the last. Located in a stunning pagoda style building near the river with its own car park, we visited on a Wednesday and the restaurant was busy. A lovely welcome from all the staff and a great choice...of menu. I opted for the deep fried crispy mushrooms in a sweet and sour sauce and my friend had the butternut squash curry. Both were delicious. We were tempted by the lemon posset which was amazing for dessert. There was live music from around 7pm and the restaurant was busy for a mid-week night. Lovely staff and one of the best meals I have had in Newcastle – prices reasonable – and we will definitely be back!More
