Great Lunch Buffet

I don't know what Mynt is like at dinner, but the lunch buffet is hit and miss, with more hits than misses. Some items were very good, while others were just ok. A group of 12 from work arrived about 12:15 on Tuesday and were seated almost immediately, despite not calling ahead. They seem to... read more

Went for a work dinner. Tandoori chicken some of the best that i have had, as well as the regular naan and naan stuffed with potatoes.

Always enjoy this place - I like to get there at 5:30 before the crowds - great seating and staff always friendly.

While there are fancier Indian restaurants, this is my favorite. Eating there is a very pleasant, quiet experience. But, most often I go there for takeaway. All my Indian friends love the place. My favorites are the lamb vindaloo, butter chicken and samosas.

The lunch buffet was priced at the usual $13.99 with a large variety of tasty, meatless dishes. There were also many meat dishes. The spices were however, toned down. The place was surprisingly quiet even though it was half full.

Typical Indian buffet. Food was good. The Naan was warm and chewy. Nice ambiance. Parking is very limited though. I wish they would post what the food at the buffet is however. They listed the names of the dishes, but I had no idea what some of the things were. Cost of the lunch buffet was $15. I would go... More

Our go-to Indian restaurant. Not the cheapest, but the vest value around. Very good Indian food in a nice setting. Butter chicken is great as is the sea bass. The only issue is a small parking lot. Have come back time and again.

During my last visit at Mynt I ordered Rogan Josh (Kashmiri Lamb) extra spicy, naan and the Goan Okra Shrimp Curry. The shrimp curry was my favorite - it was mouthwatering. And the lamb was excellent, too. The bread came from their tandoor oven, which makes for authentic taste and texture. We'll be back.

We were there for their lunch buffet. The food was very bland. The baby eggplant was not fully cooked. The chilli chicken was overcooked. The starters were not hot and crispy. The aloo tikki was very soggy. The veg pakoras soft. The staff was very friendly. The naan was hot and fresh. The salad was fresh and good. I liked... More

I was treated to the lunch buffet at Mynt by my co-workers who are from India. They recommended this place when we requested to be taken somewhere "authentic". The food was great and the service was good, despite the lunch hour rush. I'm not a huge fan of Indian food myself, however the food here was great and I would... More
