It's Bollywood at Mantra, a glittery Top Ryde Indian restaurant; loved by locals for its movie star theme nights and sumptuous regional cooking. Mantra is awash with the colours of the Mumbai markets and the arresting bouquet of a Marathi auntie's kitchen. Lanterns glitter above the tables with their silver and gold threaded tablecloths. Sequin-studded shrines to famous actresses line the walls and behind swathes of shimmering curtains lies the sumptuous cushion room, a favourite retreat for private parties.
