First time visiting mint and mustard and my family and I had a lovely time. Our waitress was super patient and attentive to us (we were being very indecisive) and really thorough with checking certain things were gluten free or not for my sister. The decor was lovely and felt really clean. The food was fab, piping hot and fresh, best chips and peshwari nan I’ve ever had! Will be back soon :) thank you!

Mint and mustard Penarth is our curry restaurant of choice. We have visited many Indian restaurants over the years and the Mint and Mustard compares extremely well. If you live in the south east Wales, then we strongly recommend them to you.
Service is very good, good and atmosphere also is of a good standard

Good food good service, just a shame there were a group of men on a table that were incredibly loud and swearing but the team were more than happy to sit us further away from them.

The music was a little booming could have been a little more quiet.The taste of the food had changed was there a new chef ?
The onion bargee had far too much chilli was a bit overwhelming
The biryanis with chilli unusual - too spicy .
My Goan vindaloo very tasteful but there was a definite change to the flavour from previous ….. .i still enjoyed it
Seems that the chef was at little heavy on the chilli emphasise of his dishes rather than spices

Fabulous food - takes what you think you know about a traditional dish into a new dimension. Not the cheapest place to eat, but definitely value for money. Staff very polite and helpful. Decor is relaxed and comfortable, but the noise level can be high.

Excellent food and service in a pleasant well organised restaurant. All starters are beautifully presented and taste delightful. Main courses are all gorgeous. Staff are lovely.
The menu choice is more limited than perhaps we are used to and the prices are not cheap. However, that is probably the reason why they can provide such consistent quality of food and service.
Mint and Mustard have a winning formula for us.

We went to Mint and Mustard for my son's birthday and had a great evening. We were a party of 11 and they managed this number of people very well.
The food was excellent, as was the service, we will definitely be back.

Mint and mustard is always excellent - their food is a bit out of the ordinary and the flavours are great - just wish they did more South Indian food like dosas!

This was the third time we had visited Mint and Mustard (Penarth), and we continued to be impressed by the service and the food. The staff as always were very attentive and provided an excellent service. For my wife and I, Mint and Mustard is one of the best in the area.
My grandson who hadn’t been before said is meal was better than expected. He had lamb biryani.
I would high recommend the restaurant to anyone.

Great restaurant. Food divine. Service second to none. Fresh ingredients, expertly cooked. Great value. Went there with a friend. Had the signature salmon dish which I can highly recommend. Chicken dhansak which was divine together with a tarka dhal. The wine list suits every pocket. Very enjoyable. Nice atmosphere

lovely food, a bit noisy for me though.

waiters didn't ask if anyone wanted rice with their meal and i diner didn't realise rice was separate so had it be ordered after the food came so he had to wait. perhaps it would have been sensible for the waiter to ask if rice or bread was wanted for those that don't know.

This is not the run of the mill curry house. Don't go in there and expect the same curries as you see everywhere, It is much better than that. It has specialty curries that offer something different and absolutely delicious.
Would highly recommend.

Sadly extremely disappointed with our experience last night. This was my delayed 70th birthday present of £50 gift vouchers but Saturday night was not a good idea.
There were problems with coordinating the first course for the three of us …. 2 of us chose the set meal. I would have expected the starters to come at the same time but the set meals were late and had to bring it to a waiters attention. To be fair the manager apologised and chose to rectify by arranging for our third guest to have the extra courses of the set meal. All very well but we were frankly overwhelmed with sheer quality of extra food.
There were other delays too again with apologies but it meant twice having to change our taxi booking. (Well done Cabs64).
We were in the restaurant some 2hrs 45minutes and took food home enough for a meal for two something we never need to do!
The ambiance did not work for us either. It’s a noisy place when full and the decor does nothing to soften the noise of people enjoying themselves - - - great to see after being let out but the high noise level made it difficult to hear ones own conversation. So Saturday night is not the best night to visit the M & M. We will visit again at some point but not on a Saturday! We were exhausted rather than relaxed at the end of our evening. Slept well though!!!
