A couple of other reviewers mention that the waiters seemed surly. Dining there last night my first impression was to agree but as the night wore on I realized the impeccably clad young men were not snobbish or unfriendly but were simply trying so hard to be professional and unobtrusive. When we made an effort to chat with them (albeit a strong effort), they were actually quite friendly and personable. So one tip to the management: Tell your young waiters to smile. The service was very good.

Now on to the wonderful food. Authentic and high quality Indian food is difficult to find. But the Mint delivers on both points. We sampled several appetizers, breads, and entrees of different styles and ingredients. All were excellent, completely wonderful in every dimension.

I will definitely return for the food and hope for a smile.

Visiting Chapel hill for just one day we dropped in here for lunch on the recommendation an Indian girl we know. Although we were disappointed we couldn't try the main menu, the quality of the buffet was very good. The dessert options were few and could be better, but compared to many Indian lunch buffets this was first class. Beer prices are a bit steep so drink water keep your lunch bill at a reasonable level. Unless you are lucky enough to pay at a meter outside the restaurant (we were) finding a parking place nearby can be a big problem. We plan to try the place for dinner next time we are in Chapel Hill.

We had an excellent meal. The appetizers were delicious and our main courses were excellent. Service was quick so our dishes were hot and fresh. We all would return.

I went with friends and had a great time and the food is spot on. If you like a flexable Indian Venue, this is a good one.

Both wife and I are vegetarians. They had excellent delicious options for us that we both enjoyed. I had a Korma dish and was tempted to lick the bowl it came to the table in. Will definitely dine here again.
