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.

We are locals in Arrowtown and have popped in a fair bit for takeaways, but decided to dine in tonight. Lovely atmosphere and very smiley, helpful service from Afi. It really is Indian 'fine dining'. Curry's always taste freshly made and unique with lots of flavour. I would like to highly recommend their Coconut Lamb, delicious!

We were craving for good delecious Indian food in New Zealand and found this place during our visit to Arrowtown.

Was 100% satisfied with the place. Awesome ambience, good punjabi songs being played and above all awesome North Indian food.

Completely loved it. Keep it up.

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.
