Tourism, traveling, and trade were adversely affected by the Corona Virus Covid-19. Moving out and penning down the activities – past and present – were restricted and limited. I was anxiously waiting for the resumption of flight operations from Pakistan. We got the opportunity and...I, with my wife Sabiha Sagri, was flown to Chicago by Emirates Airlines on July 8, 2020. Our sons Tanvir and Tauqir Sagri received us at O’Hare Airport, Chicago. The tiring travel made it imperative for us to enjoy a meal in a relaxing atmosphere. Mantra Restaurant was the right choice – good food, good ambiance, and above all, the price not heavy on the wallet. The staff was friendly and the service wonderful. The décor was appealing and awesome. Wheelchair accessible and vegetarian friendly, they offer other services like porch (outdoor) seating, reservations, free Wi-Fi, delivery, takeout, and table service. They accept credit cards. Finally, we had a good time in an ambiance conducive to comfort and care.More

Fabulous food. Spicy curry, big pieces of chicken. Chicken pakora had amazing masala flavor. Yummy garlic naan (though no mozz on the mozz garlic naan). Big portions, though I wish a small amount if rice came with mains instead of having to over-order as a...side. Still, rices delectable.More

Spouse had the Chicken Tikka Masala and I had the Lamb Vindaloo which were both excellent. We also ordered the samosa and paratha which were well-prepared. I think a little more tender lamb would have been nice but to get real vindaloo in Chicagoland was...great! We've traveled far and wide to only be disappointed by the vindaloo in other Chicago restaurants. Vindaloo is the ultimate spicy curry which originates in Goa, India. Service is excellent. There was a real pine tree decorated for the holidays which smelled wonderful. An enjoyable experience overall.More

I went to this place with my colleagues for lunch. They have good lunch combos at normal price.But today food didn't look and taste fresh. After explaining 3-4 times finally they understood what i wanted in combo. I ordered pindi chole and paneer makhni. Pindi...chole with too much oil and tasteless. Paneer was stale and had a bad taste. The best thing in the combo was naan and water. I have been to this restaurant for 15-20 times and the quality was always superb. Not sure what happened today.More

We ordered Veg jalfrezi and Kadai paneer for pick up.The quantity was too less with respect to the price being charged i.e. 15$ per item. I think if you dine-in the quantity will be more. But for pick up the quantity was very less. Also...veg jalfrezi had 80% carrots and rest 20% onion , capsicum , broccoli,tomato. Taste also wasn’t that great. I may rethink before ordering from the same place again for the price that we are paying.More

The restaurant is at first captivating with an unusual temple-like entry and an interior with equally interesting art works. While the food is slightly above average the service is erratic with no assigned waiters per table. But for an Indian restaurant the exotic spicy margarita...was great!More

Hungry for the flavors of India, we found this wonderful restaurant on Tripadvisor and decided to give it a try. We ate in the secluded outdoor area, sitting by the fountain with floating rose petals.We had a huge wooden platter of tandoori chicken along with...the lamb house specialty, and jasmine rice with peas and saffron. It was delicious.The wait staff were very attentive and we really enjoyed our visit.More

For me it is that 9/10 kind of place which scores big on their ambiance, service and everything else still remains 6/10 on food. (Indian food critique standards). I would still go again and again for the expirence and try to review the menu dish...by dish :) The resturant’s interior decor is so perfect, the level of detail is amazing. Right from the Artifacts to the cusion covers everything seems to be picked up very tastefully. Has an elaborate menu. Good choice for a sophisticated dining or a hearty Indian full meal. I will still save a star for it, want to see the menu doin’ better.More
