Description: The moment you step inside Mantra Restaurant you will discover there's a real difference when it comes to enjoying Indian hospitality and dining. Sophisticated Indian cuisine in Arrowtown in a pink, black, almost womb-like interior, emphasizing peace and tranquility. The unique décor is warm and inviting with careful attention to making your visit truly enjoyable and special. Mantra promises an elegant dining experience and is keen to push away from the traditional image of an Indian restaurant. The ambiance is smooth, with slow-moving waiting staff deliberately taking their time to make sure the pace of life in here is suitably sedate. Menu is varied, with an excellent vegetarian selection which has been carefully selected and crafted by Shammi. Portions are generous and very nicely-presented. Complementing the menu Mantra has showcased an excellent wine list.

Always enjoy the food here but found on this occasion the service OTT on the up selling and a bit too aggressive.

This would not stop me going again - they have a great range of Indian food

We visited arrow town on our trip to queenstown. Being vegetarians we chose to have lunch at Mantra. The food was awesome and the owner was friendly. Loved the ambience of the place.

Great service and atmosphere. We made a late booking, we could not get there on time and they kept the kitchen open just for us. We were there for our anniversary with my partner and we ordered a "banquet". I don't remember the exact name of the dish but it was AWESOME. We tried 3 different curries with entrees and everything.
The waiter and manager were so helpful and kind!! Thanks guys!!!

We had a warm, friendly welcome, and possibly one of our best Indian meals ever. Food was beautiful and we all enjoyed our meals. A great evening and would highly recommend. Will definitely go back when in Arrowtown again.
