This restaurant has a quite unique and authentic menu, especially if you are prepared to experiment and try something new. You get the impression that the chef knows a great deal about the art of blending spices. The atmosphere is cosy and our waitress was an absolute... More

Really enjoyed our first visit to the Mina - one of the few places in Cardiff where you can get a coucous. It contained an excellent range of well-cooked vegetables and marinated lamb. The home-made Lebanese desserts were among the best I have ever had.

I visited Mina last night with my husband for the first time and loved the whole experience. Fantastic food, great service and a really cosy and inviting restaurant. A great menu with plenty of delicious choices, something for everyone. Even my husband enjoyed it and that's saying something!! I can't wait for my next visit.

An enjoyable visit on a Thursday night. Whilst it wasn't full there were quite a few people there. I had a selection of mezze which were all well cooked and presented. The staff were friendly and attentive. Will go again

Delicious, well cooked and presented food, with welcoming and friendly service. This was a great find on a miserable evening when not many top rated Cardiff restaurants are open. Highly recommended!
