Been through the menu here and it's all excellent with friendly service. Unassuming from the outside but the fare is excellent and the venue intimate without being pretentious.

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Cardiff and it didn’t fail us again. What makes it special is not just the simply delicious Lebanese food but the relaxed atmosphere and warm friendly service. If you like Meze and chargrilled lamb and chicken this is for you. If you haven’t been to Mina's and experienced this wonderful food and... More

We were warmly welcomed and the service was excellent throughout in this family run restaurant. While studying the menu we enjoyed our Arak and delicious Mojito. From the mezze starters we chose Baba Ghannouj, Tabboule and Kibba which were accompanied by hot pitta bread. We had to stop ourselves from eating too much bread so as to leave room for... More

Visited recently with my partner on a Saturday night but foolishly didn't book a table. We turned up at 8.30, but the owner said he could squeeze us in at 9pm. We decided to go for a quick drink across the road and he even came into the pub to tell us our table was ready....Bang on 9pm! How thoughtful?!... More

Hot mezza mixed platter to start, very tasty and delicious. Main course MIna lamb was spicy and the meat tender, chicken dishes also very good! Give this place a try, I'm sure you won't be... More

This is a baguette and salad takeaway. There is so much choice for the filling. They put lots of filling in the baguettes and give you lots of chicken in the chicken salad. Most importantly the chicken is halal.

We've been coming to Minas for a few years with family and as a couple as my in-laws live around the corner. I don't think that the menu has changed in all this time, but it doesn't need to as all the food we've tried is lovely. The staff are friendly, particularly with kids, food comes out nice and quick... More
