  • "A vegetable Thali lets you travel around the menu with one order... saag paneer, spicy chickpeas, sweet and vinegary softened eggplant and a slightly chewy dal makhani." - November 2012 Issue
  • Been here probably a dozen times. Everything I've tried is delicious. Nice atmosphere and courteous service. One of my favs in Fairfax.
  • Lunch buffets are on point. Something like 9 or 10 bucks for a feast of rice, beans, and delicious treats. Frsh Naan is definitely a high point.
  • A fantastic restaurant in Fairfax on Main St. featuring a varied collection of spicy Indian dishes. Great customer service & finely cooked chicken curry with tomato sauce and healthy vegetarian food.
  • Mutton(goat) biryani, butter chicken and garlic naan makes an amazing meal. Lovely ambiance too #ProudIndian
  • Chicken tikka masala is so good
  • Food was OK, service was great... looked like heavy use of food coloring

  • Very cool decor!
  • The food at Curry Mantra is delicious, I plan on repeating this experience many times.
  • Get the butter chicken with naan. So yummy. Don't miss out on the Kheer (rice pudding). It has a custard-like texture, so rich and creamy, and has some wonderful flavors.
  • Forget that it's Indian cuisine. This place has some of the best food in all of Fairfax County!

  • Get the goat biryani. "Get the goat, don't be the goat."
  • Great Buffet! Not a big crowd on Sundays, have your fill! Service is spot-on!
  • Housemade biryani tosses juicy goat meat into a fiery rice blend padded with carrots, ginger, garlic and aromatics. - November 2011 issue
