Maroubra’s favourite curry hotspot, Mantra Masala is doing justice to the cuisine of the Indian subcontinent. The restaurant’s opulent decor feels fit for royalty, featuring dark leather seats, chic ceiling lights and luxurious curtains, and the food is just as stunning. Situated on Maroubra Road, this restaurant in Sydney’s eastern suburbs never gets old, and is frequented daily by regular guests. The menu is the star of the show here and the dishes are brimming with fresh herbs and spices to tantalise your tastebuds, and are cooked to perfection using centuries-old Indian cooking techniques. Known to get busy, Mantra Masala suggests reserving ahead to secure a table!
Sydney is home to some pretty spectacular restaurants, and some pretty excellent Indian restaurants to boot, and Mantra Masala is certainly up there with the best of them. Conveniently located in Maroubra, this Indian jewel is the perfect spot for dining with friends, or for a romantic dinner for two revelling in the delicious menu and beautifully designed restaurant space. Mantra Masala is of course, famed for its menu and using a charcoal tandoor, they offer options like tandoori paneer, reshmi kebab and the unique Indian-Jamaican tamarind smoked jerk chicken served with a tasty slaw and delicious sweet potato fries.
Popular mains include the Nepalese goat curry, the lamb shanks and the chicken pondicherry, as well as the vegetarian malai kofta with curry leaves, mustard seeds, sultanas and a moghlai gravy, alongside decadent dessert choices like perhaps the rasmalai, of dumplings made with cottage cheese soaked in sweet, thickened milk, delicately flavoured with cardamom, perfect just for that little extra indulgence. You can find Mantra Masala in the heart of Maroubra along Maroubra Road, not too far from the beautiful Sydney coastline. Mantra Masala does tend to fill up though, so bookings are essential.
Great food and great service. The Vindaloo Wings, Chicken Pondicherry and Keema Nann were all excellent. We were a table of 9 and we all had a great evening.
it was a great meal in a great environment, good food with good services, we will definitely visit again try out some other dishes :)
The service and food were all good. The restaurant was very busy but the staff were still attentive to our needs. Good byo local restaurant and only Indian restaurant nearby.
Centrally-located with great food, at a good price. The two dishes we ordered were delicious & the portions were just right. The only draw back was that this website allowed my partner to make a reservation outside of the restaurant's working hours, so we were left waiting for 30minutes until the restaurant opened, which was a little inconvenient.
Initially the one waitress was severely overwhelmed with new diners, take away orders, a large group and people trying to pay. Once she had cleared the leavers / take away order everything was back on track. Good food and service.
I was hoping for some real flavour-filled Indian food. It was nice, not bad at all, but quite bland. Waiters were slow, got our order wrong and brought the condiments after the mains.
Place gives a warm welcome. Food was great. Service was good. You can tell the owners really tried to put their heart into the place.
good food good service and reasonable price but think the portions a little bit smaller than usual over all had a very good night and will go back again
