Waiting staff not interested - waited over hour for food when only half full, food was awful (everything tasted the same and was sugary) - never again - go to sammys instead!

We tried Mint for the first time tonight after finding it by chance and thank our lucky stars we did. We've been searching for a really good Indian in the area for a while and this is the best by a street. Really good service, very friendly staff and the food was as good as we've had for a very long time - and we've tried quite a few locally. Mixed starters were superb, the meat was tender and beautifully spiced, bhajis crisp and light, not greasy at all. Mains were delicious, again lovely depth of flavour and incredibly tender. Looking forward to going back very soon and this will now be our regular Indian!

My husband and myself went here for an anniversary meal. We got moved to a bigger table which was a nice thought. Our food was served quickly and was tasty. Unfortunately when we were given the menu for ordering desserts we were left with it and no one came back to ask if we wanted anything! 40 mins later we decided to leave anyway. Over all not bad food but service to improve.

We have been 3 times in the last year. The food is always great. The atmosphere is different to your old school Indian, quite modern and a selection of food, most what you'd expect, some a little different. Friendly staff, would recommend and go back.

We had a takeaway from Mint for the first time on Thursday evening this week. It wasn't the cheapest option as they don't do a midweek special, but thought we'd give them a try as they're local to us. We ordered a meal for two and were told it would take 40 to 50 mins to be delivered (longer than other places we've ordered from). It actually took well over an hour before it arrived, and the food wasn't hot. The portion sizes were quite generous, more than enough for three people, but the food itself was nothing special. The lamb bhuna was very mild and the onion bhajis were overcooked. From reading other reviews it seems you normally get better food and service in the restaurant, but they seem to struggle with their takeaways. Unfortunately we won't be having any more from here.
