Read some other reviews and decided to try it out. This will be our go-to Indian restaurant in Cape Coral. I had Tiki Marsala and my wife had butter chicken, both dishes were outstanding. We opted for some cheese naan as an appitizer and that...was cooked to perfection as well. Outstanding service, great food and good prices, who could ask more from a local restaurant?More

Malai Kofta is not an easy dish to make and you rarely see it on a menu at a typical Indian restaurant however Masala Mantra offers it and it's out of this world! In my dinner entree, there were three dumplings and I could have...eaten more and the sauce? Oh the sauce! The people who make these recipes must be from Southern India because their sauces are over the top delicious and there is plenty of it to soak up your rice or clean the plate and bowl with garlic naan. If you are a big eater, you will need a side dish to go with the Kofta. My husband ordered the Dal and the Aloo Gobi Masala, which this dish was not the traditional one of other Indian restaurants I've been to ... and I've been to many. From the Dutch side of St. Maarten to New York and even Ocala Florida, I've tasted many interpretations of Indian food. Most adjust their spices to the American palate and that for me, waters down the experience. My mom had the Vegetable Korma. Heat wise, we said medium. On a scale from 1-10, a 5. They were pretty spot on with the heat but as always, let your food cool down a bit and it reduces the impact on the palate. We both came home with leftovers which we repurposed with some fresh veggies and had a delightful lunch the next day. This place is worth the drive.More

This was our first visit here, and it won't be the last! Excellent service and food! We had a group of 4 when we visited, and we shared all the dishes. We had: Manchurian Gobi (cauliflower) and Paneer (cheese), and both were very tasty; we...also had chicken tikka masala, butter chicken, chicken korma, and chicken biriyani. All the dishes were great! Each person liked everything, but we each picked a different favorite... We also had the garlic Naan, which was perfect!More

We had the buffet. Surprisingly, all the items we tried were very tasty and exceeded expectations. The interior decor of restaurant is casual and well done. Overall a great lunch. Highly recommended.

I chanced on this place - TOTALLY unimpressive from the street - only because it was a few short blocks from where I dropped my wife for an art class. I was starving. I saw the TripAdvisor reviews and thought, “OK let’s give this a...shot. “ I ordered the mixed grill special and the garlic nan. Even though I went in famished, it was enough food for two. The lamb was some of the best I’ve ever tasted.More

Thanks to folks here we tried the Masala Mantra lunch buffet. What a HIT! $14.99 for absolutely wonderful food! Such rich sauces, gorgeous colors! Ruban was delightful from the minute we walked in the door. Restaurant, restrooms, buffet table were all spotless. All food is...labeled and 'heat' symbols posted. That Rogan Josh Chicken and I are a 'thing' now.....More

We orderd a glas of rose and we got a glass of red house wine. They charged us for a bottle of rose! Unfortunately we saw that when we were at home already. A difference of 17 dollars. We didn’t even had rose but red...wine. I must admitt the food is great.More

Excellent food and service!! They have a wide selection of vegan options and can often "veganize" other selections. Very customer oriented! It's so good that we eat there at least weekly.

This is a REALLY good Indian restaurant (highly recommended by our India-loving friends who lived in Mumbai for 2 years.) It’s very authentic with wonderful fresh and well cooked dishes. We had the Indian Thali twice (lunch) as well as different currys for dinner. The...staff is super friendly and helpful and the overall ambience is super calming and inviting. Highly recommend this place and hope it will be in Cape Coral for ever!!!!More

We wanted to try the buffet as we have eaten Indian food all over the US. We noticed it was a small parking lot; don't let that bother you there is plenty of seating. The food was very warm and medium level of spicy. We...asked for some Indian hot sauce and were brought two to try and both were excellent. I had to eat the Chana Masala three times as it was so good. I am not veg so I tried the chicken dishes and they were tasty as well. I'd of like to see some sag paneer, but next time.More
