We absolutely love Mint Leaf. Best Indian Food in Pasadena. Even on a full-to-bursting Valentine's Day Night out, they kept the tables moving, food was hot, and our server was attentive and courteous.

Wonderful flavors in all dishes and I loved the multiple servings of masala chai. The halwa was as rich and flavorful as can be.

My family loves the food at Mint Leaf and have tried about half of the options without being disappointed. I like being able to set the spice heat and we've settled on a 7. It's great value and the service is always good. Highly recommended.

Great Indian food. They control the "heat" based on your request from 0 to 10.

There is a very rude person in charge of the room, he needs to be trained in customer service and how not to be rude to customers on the telephone. I will not consider this restaurant again.

This was my first time to Mint Leaf and it was excellent. I had tried once before but did not have reservations so we did not get it. The waitress was great in that she helped us understand the dishes on the menu. Everything was wonderful and I look forward to a return visit.

The ambience and service are excellent. Very relaxing. The food is very good but it is expensive for small portions. Nice to have the option of heat level.

Mint Leaf has amazing Indian food. My only caution would be to be careful when they ask your spice level. They will accommodate you but if you ask for spicy you will get it. The staff is wonderfully friendly and efficient. The environment is warm and friendly in a cozy dining room.

Love all the vegetarian options! The food is great, spicy, and with some more interesting dishes than your average Indian restaurant. Service was friendly and on point. We really enjoyed this restaurant!

This is a small restaurant with wonderful, personal service and delicious Indian food. We all loved it as it’s easy, unpretentious and so satisfying. If I have any complaint it’s that the lighting is a bit too bright and overhead. It would add to the ambiance if they’d put the overhead on dimmers and possibly add table side lamps.

It was a cold day and we arrived early. Santos was kind enough to let us in before the restaurant opened. It was my birthday, so I forced my mom to come despite the fact that she doesn't like any food that isn't bland. Santos was ultra accommodating and found something my mom could eat. My mom was completely blown away by her meal. When I took her home, she confessed that she dreaded going but said she would definitely go back. My meal was absolutely perfect. I had samosas, two vegetable entrees, rice, naan, and chai (and a couple of bites of my mom's heavenly kulfi). I had enough food for a couple of days. Santos was amazing as usual. The service is top notch, I can think of anywhere that compares. The overall experience is beyond exceptional. Many, many thanks-I can't imagine a better birthday meal.

We love this place. The food is delicious and the service is attentive but not hovering. Last night we had the salmon curry, okra, and lamb masala. We know there will be leftovers so we always get two orders of rice. And you need the nan to soak up those wonderful sauces. They will tell you a 5 is jalapeño spicy, but we always ask for an 8 on slices. And that’s a comfortable warm spicy, not at all hot.

The owner is anxious to please and always comes over to say hello. We always tell him the same thing - best Indian food in southern California - and then introduce him to our friends if they are new to Mint Leaf. Great place.

Mint Leaf is one of our very favorite restaurants. We have enjoyed Indian food at other Pasadena restaurants but Mint Leaf is absolutely the best we have ever had, here or throughout the US. Their okra, something I have never liked, is my favorite dish! They are amazing...every dish we have ever had there has been truly excellent! Highly recommend.

So, I used to go here often. I’ve even catered parties with them. In short, spent a lot of money here.

The food isn’t great, but it is close to where I live so that works. Convenience covers a multitude of sins.

Made a reservation tonight for 2 at 7:15. Arrived 5 minutes early. I was informed that there would be a long wait for reservations. Really? I made a reservation. If reservations have to wait, what’s the point of a reservation?

Go ahead and take your chances if you like. They may or may not honor your reservation. Good luck with that. Plenty of other places to choose from.
