Decent Lunch Buffet

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... read 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

Had a lunch buffet with a friend. Staff was courteous. The food was quiet tasty and was authentic Indian. Choices were good. We were served hot naan and parathas when requested. In all a very good experience. Will definately go back there.

I was working in Sunnyvale and staying in San Francisco so my colleague took me to Mynt for a Friday night dinner. The food was quite good - we had the Manchurian cauliflower, Dal Makhani and Aloo Gobi. There was not as much spicing as I'm used to and it wasn't very hot, but it was delicious and I ate... More

My family visited Mynt last week and were very thrilled with the food and the service. There were 7 of us, 2 that are vegans. Mynt was very helpful in assisting all of us novices at Indian food selecting tasty and not too spicy selections. We ordered way too much food and took home enough for a couple of more... More

Mynt has always been a mediocre restaurant in terms of food and service but yesterday it hit a new low. We were having lunch with a few friends and one of my friends bit on something hard and sharp while having Dal Fry. It turned out to be at least an inch long, sharp, hard piece of plastic! Had she...
