This place has a welcoming environment with Indian decoration, and a great customer service.
You will have plenty of options in tapas with all kind of meat, fish, vegetables and cheese.
Desserts and ice cream are phenomenal with lots of options to choose as well.
And, of course coffee, with all the varieties that the Spaniards offer.
So, if you want to have a fun time solo or with friends, don't hesitate to come to Mandala!☕

This place is with a visit. At first I was a little apprehensive to go thinking this might be a tourist trap but I was proven wrong by the excellent delicacies at this place. However, the service is slow, but this is Spain, and the waitress is a little dishonest, I gave her 4 euros and the bill was for 3.80, she didn’t return change. However, the food was excellent, just make sure you are vigilant of the wait staff.

Brilliant cooking, fast & professional service, nice ambiance. This is an impressive little restaurant. The menu del dia is a good bargain for all that you get. Excellent coffee too. Can be hard to get a table so have to plan your visit a bit. They should sell a cookbook with their recipes, some of the dishes were really original such as the lasanga and the black rice with seafood. An excellent option in Salamanca. Hope you enjoy.

We came here because the veggie options looked great on the menu and all the good reviews here, but only 1 out of our 4 dishes was actually a good dish. The vegetarian spinach lasagne was more cheese than pasta and barely contained vegetables for filling, the stuffed peppers were stodgy, and the falafel was a bit mushy, accompanied by dry iceberg lettuce and yogurt with a bit of herb which was supposed to be tzatiki.
Now I appreciate perhaps the meat dishes might be better but I'd think when you have a dinner menu consisting of 10-12 dishes and at least a quarter are subpar, that's pretty poor.

Visited today for lunch, had the set menu three courses with a bottle of Rioja wine for 2 people, two beers to start, a coffee with brandy and a special coffee to finish. €40
Cannot fault anything we had, would definitely be visiting again if we were remaining in Salamanca.
Thank you for making our final day memorable.
