Our family spent the evening at the Mint and enjoyed the menu with all of the variety and nice offerings. Appetizers were varied with ample servings. This was my first time with Indian food and it was a good experience.

Not a fancy place but buffet was good indian fare, fresh and with unlimited champagne as well for brunch you cannot beat the price of $15.00

We shared three dishes. The crab tiki masala was strong flavor, too much for my wife, but I liked it. The korma was good and the shahi paneer was everyone’s favorite. The garlic naan was good as well.

We met friends at Mint on a recent Saturday night. The restaurant was not crowded, but many of the surrounding restaurants also seemed rather empty that night. The restaurant is comfortable and unpretentious. We were able to sit and enjoy our conversation for several uninterrupted...More
