As the winner of Bali International Customers Satisfaction Award 2023, Spice Mantraa invites diners to enjoy a complex, yet creative gastronomical experience. Starting with Spice Mantraa in Kuta, then expanding to their newest addition in Seminyak, dining at this premier Indian restaurant in Bali is much like a journey through the different regions of India, with subtle Asian and European influences.

Although they share the same name, Spice Mantraa Kuta and Spice Mantraa Seminyak each offer unique ambiences, interiors and menus. Nonetheless, both locations are packed with goodness, starting with ‘The Journey Begins’ featuring soups and salads, and also ‘The First Stop’ offering an assortment of small bites such as dosas and samosa. A standout favourite is the Goodness Golgappa – crispy bite-sized puries, packed with potato, sprouts, tamarind chutney and Jal Jeera flavoured water.

That’s just half of the scrumptious Indian cuisine on offer! If you’re craving a spicy kick, get ready for ‘A Fiery Adventure’ jam-packed with a variety of Tandoori delicacies. We also recommend trying the popular Spice Mantraa’s Kerala-style Lobster Pepper Fry, smoke-infused Butter Chicken and Mantraa Prawn Curry.
