“Excellent quality of food, service and menu choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Excellence from start to finish. Warm welcome, good choice of table with prompt and attentive service. Good choice of wines, especially Indian. Excellent range of modern and classic dishes. Just off the tourist beat, near Green Park. Busy every evening, so book to avoid being disappointed!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

Was very happy with level of service staff very friendly helpful and attentive. Food was beautifully presented and of a high standard the manager was very friendly and offered us a complimentary dessert as he wanted us to sample one of their homemade creations which was delicious. Would definately return if ever fortunate enough to be in the area again

“Fine dining.....India style”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

What an obvious development and yet this is the first time I have seen this - good Indian food prepared and served in a fine dining style more associated with French cuisine. This is not fusion food but true Indian based dishes served in a delicate and interesting way. As starters we had tandoori paneer and rabbit served in a coconut based tower with a beet root jus - fabulous. The mains were scallops in a delicate curry sauce and chicken done in a Madras- styled sauce without the coriander (which is exactly what I had requested). Overall a superb concept beautifully crafted and executed.

“Royal Mint!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

Just returned from a more than wonderful meal at The Mint Room. The service is warm and friendly and very, very efficient without being rushed. And the food is really quite something else. A fusion of traditional Indian fare taken to new culinary heights using locally sourced ingredients and inspired imagination. Everything from the Poppadum pre-appetizer to the appetizer, Rabbit Varuval, (chunks of rabbit meat tossed with onion, chilli, curry leaves and ground spices), which was almost a fantastic meal in itself, to the Masala Roast Lamb Shank, (pot roasted Welsh lamb shank braised with onion, tomato, yoghurt and ground sesame seeds), was succulent and incredibly flavourful. The sides of rice, (Pilau and Lemon), were so aromatic that my partner almost fainted upon inhaling the mouth-watering aromas, while the Chilli Garlic Naan reinvents this staple and makes the perfect way to finish off the delectable sauces. Had we had any room in our terribly satisfied tummies we would have ordered the sorbet but that will have to wait until next time. And we will be back, as often as possible, to sample the array of outstanding dishes served at extremely reasonable prices. Cannot recommend The Mint Room highly enough. Reserve a table quickly, before the restaurant is discovered for the absolute gem it is and the line-ups reach as far as Bristol!
