Great atmosphere and great food. Friendly and efficient servers. We’ve eaten at Mint a number of times and we’ve always enjoyed each dish. Not a single item have we ever not loved. Love this restaurant. Always consistent

The food is outstanding, not a doubt. I ordered fish and it was quite perfect, texture, heat ans prepared beautifully. Also I ordered a cocktail (ginger and tamarind) that too was delicious! Service was alright. A little weird when the waiter balked at splitting checks....Really? Is this somehow a new request? Do most people (a table of 4, 5,6) come in and one person gets the entire bill of several hundred dollars. Please stop feigning - it's silly. Just make a note of what each person had and split the bill, save the silliness!More

This is a very good Indian restaurant. Most people order the buffet, but if you are willing to wait a bit, the menu items are great. The only downside is that the parking in Chapel Hill is a nightmare.

Visited for Saturday brunch with my daughter. Her first time eating Indian out. We chose the buffet so that she could try a great variety. The price was great the selection was great. Since it was a buffet, the food wasn't near as spicy as...I like. The goat was mostly all bones and the vindaloo was flavorless. They offer all you can drink champagne which would appeal to the younger grad student types. My daughter loved the mango milkshake.More

I only ended up here because I arrived in town early for a show at Local 506 one night and this is just a couple doors down, but I'm really glad I stumbled across it. The food was excellent, particularly the vegetable samosa and mulligatwany...soup. Liquor and cocktail selection was also pretty good. The service was great, especially when I accidentally left my jacket behind. By the time I realized it, I was already well into the show I was attending and didn't want to leave, so I just hoped they'd hold onto it. Immediately after the show I returned, and before I could even ask my server saw me and grabbed my jacket from behind the host's station, telling me he'd tried to run out after me with it but hadn't been able to find me. I'm sure if I'd been going anywhere more than 2 doors away he would have caught me in the street to return my jacket, which I definitely appreciated.More

We had the lunch buffet. all the dishes were fantastic. I especially like the vegetable korma, the tikka marsalas, lemon rice, mint sauce and the naan. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere, great service and good prices. Our whole group of 6 loved it.

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 enjoy our food it was very good, we had lamb and it was delicious we also tried the garlic naan and it was fresh and soft the only thing I think can improve is the service, the communication between us and the waiter wasn’t...very good and I have to ask several times to get a refill of my drink till the point that I just give up and forgot about it.More
