Respond to Review of Mantra Masala
Review: The February 2008 review in Las Vegas Weekly piqued my interest in this new restaurant. I have dined at every Indian restaurant in Las Vegas, only to be disappointed with the copious amounts of oil and sodium used in their food. SoCal has several great health-oriented Indian restaurants; Las Vegas had none until Mantra Masala. Their menu features many vegetarian and vegan dishes. I started my meal with tomato soup, papadam and aloo paratha, and concluded with the entree eggplant bharta and basmati rice. The food was outstanding, the service attentive. The prices are reasonable, and the restaurant's vibe is conducive to ones enjoying a superlative Indian meal. I was so impressed with my dining experience that I had to convey my accolades to the owner, Tapan, who diligently endeavored to accommodate my strict vegan needs. Finding an Indian restaurant in Las Vegas that could truly prepare authentic vegan cuisine did not exist before Mantra Masala. I dine there at least once a week, and it is now my favorite restaurant in Las Vegas. I make the highest recommendation without reservation.
