Mantra (Fine Indian Cuisine & Banquet) - Corona, CA

My first plate (to figure out which things I liked the most)

480 N. Main Street
Corona, CA 92880
Website here

All-you-can-eat lunch buffet (11am-3pm)
Dinner (5-10pm)

Michelle and Chris invited me to join them for Indian food at this place. I happened to be coming from somewhere on the other side of Corona, so I met them there after I saw Julie and her baby. SO CUTE. Anyway, the food was delicious. My favorite was the one I thought I'd hate: One of the orange-red chicken dishes. It wasn't chicken tikka masala...I didn't think it was butter chicken. I know for sure it listed "ginger" as one of the ingredients because I thought for sure I wouldn't like it, and then I did and went back and looked at the name and ingredients again. I can't find the name on the website. Weird. Anyway, it was SO good.

KHEER on the left and RAS MALAI = "Homemade cheese flatten balls of vanner) soaked in malai (clotted cream) flavored with cardmom [sic]"

I could definitely eat everything on that plate, and then some!
