We went on a football evening, so all the town's restaurants were pretty empty, as was Mint. The service was friendly and efficient. We had a lamb and a chicken curry. Both were well prepared and the portions were generous. With nan, rice and raita,...More

The lunch buffet is one of the lease expensive in the area. However, the selection was not as wide as at some other places. The garlic naan at the buffet was a very appreciated surprise. There was goat and chicken dishes as well as veggie...More
