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

We like Middle Eastern food and Mina sets the standard. The portions are generous, but most importantly the food is superb. Cannot recommend too highly! Have the lamb couscous.

Not has a restaurant disappointed me than this one! The ambience was good for a romantic evening or catch up with friends. The food though was poor. I say that because I like meat tasty and succulent. If you like meat dry and hard to eat then this is the place for you. I've travelled the world, but this was... More
