Tasty but hair in my food

The food was tasty but when I pointed out the hair in my salad, the server didn't apologize or comp the item although she did bring a new salad. Server seemed disinterested at best. The main course was well seasoned and moist but the atmosphere was so poor I don't plan to return.

I placed an order on line. Was told pick up was at 7:10PM. It's 7:35 and still no order. Finally at 7:40 they tell me a few minutes more explaining they only have two cooks. At 745 I get my food. If that is the case then give realistic pick up times. Maybe offer a drink (or soda) with an... More

We (I and my wife) visited it last night ( 5/23/2014). The service was despicable.Compared to other Mediterranean Restaurants in the area ( pita-pita and pita inn) the portions were extremely small. The waitress refused to give the wi-fi password despite claims that there is free wi-fi in resturant. The prices for same dishes when compared with other Mediterranean Restaurants... More

Normally this place is completely empty so we usually opt for takeout, which always turns out to be quite expensive. This time, the restaurant was running a special deal of $35 + tax for 1 appetizer, 2 glasses of house wine, 2 soups, 2 entrees and 2 desserts. For this price, you were limited to a selection of the less... More

The food was bad, the service even worst. It was just two of us and they included 20% tip, and after we refuse to pay the tip, they threatened to call the police and kicked us out. Just want to point out - WE DID PAY THE BALANCE AFTER THE GROUPON, but refused to pay the 20% tip included. Awful... More

Unprofessional, over priced, and small portions. The waitress was very dramatic with what appeared to be her best friend (cell phone).

This was my second time at Mina. I went about three or four years ago right after they first opened and was disappointed by the fattoush, which is one of my favorite salads. It didn't have pita in it, was basically romaine with tasteless tomato chunks and two olives, but an excellent dressing. The service was amateur but friendly. This... More

A colleague and I recently had lunch here prior to a sales presentation. We're both big into trying unique, non-chain restaurants whenever possible, so it was a great fit. From the prices on their menu, I was really expecting something more akin to a kebaab fast food type restaurant, so what we got was a very nice surprise. It is... More
