Mantra in Jakarta

Recommended Posts

I absolutely adore Indian food. After reading Mr. Suvir Saran's wonderfully eloquent posts and of his restaurant Amma, and the glowing reviews, I hope that when I come to NYC next year, I'll have the honor and pleasure of dining at Amma. Congratulations, Mr. Saran, all the best!

We have a few Northern and Southern Indian restaurants here in Jakarta but so far I have only been to Mantra. Although I'm sure Mantra comes nowhere close to the dining experience at Amma, we enjoyed a delicious casual meal here last week. We were seated on sumptious peach colored pillows which contrasted nicely with the maroon silk wall hangings.

We started out with warm naan, then came lovely dal, a succulent mutton dish, some spinach and cheese, and tandoor chicken.

I wanted to take more photos but I was knuckle deep in the mutton, which was the best dish of all. And I don't really like lamb and mutton all that much. But this was heavenly.

private formal dining, rather stiff and looked uncomfortable, but had a nice view. I forgot to take photos of where we were seated. :shock::wacko:

Wonderful photographs - I wanted to hang out in JKT but have not had an opportunity.

Please do post often and frequently about food in Indonesia - Who knows some of us might burn some miles and do a detour or swing an Asia-Pass :raz:
