It was the second time I've visited the restaurant and it's fair to say I wasn't disappointed. As with the first time the staff were attentive and quick The food was fab. We had a mezzanine so tasted all sorts. Everything was great It's very reasonable and I think I'll be going back sooner rather than later !! The Lebanese... More

Visited Mina for the first time and was impressed. Don't expect 'fine dining', but do expect a friendly welcome and good food. I particularly enjoyed the mixed mezza starter, which included Hummus, Baba Ghannouj, Tabboule and Warak Enab. It doesn't matter that all of these are vegetarian dishes, they just served to remind me how other cultures are more adept... More

We had our anniversary party at Mina's; the service was exceptionally efficient, especially considering there were 27 of us, and the food was as delicious as ever. I would recommend Mina's to anyone!

Two of us dined here one friday evening in June. The owner and his waitress were really friendly and helpful, explaining what each of the items on the menu was. They even helped us chose a bottle of Lebanese wine, making for what I think must be a truly Lebanese experience. I have no idea how authentic it was, as... More

On a recent visit to Cardiff we ate here twice. The Mixed Mezze is particularly good and the steaks look fantastic though I stuck to the genuine lebanese food and was impressed with the grilled marinated chicken dishes. They also sell Lebanese wine and stock Chateau Muzar which would appear to the uninitiated to be expensive but is a wonderful... More

I rang up last minute make a reservation yesterday, and by gosh, I'm so glad I decided to go there again. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and quirky. I especially loved the wall made by corks from wine bottles- it gave a really good effect. We decided on two courses each as the portions we're more than adequate, we couldn't... More
