Mint Leaf Indian Cuisine is an Indian restaurant located in Pasadena, CA.
Very nicely prepared food. It’s worth your time.
Food was great, but restaurant overcharged on the bill.
Small intimate restaurant, delicious Indian food. Waiter was a little disorganized and not quite as helpful as the last time we were there. Seemed a little understaffed as many places right now. Overall a wonderful meal, am sure kinks will work themselves out as time progresses. Will definitely go back!
Very rude servers
This place is awesome. The food is fresh, authentic and delicious. The best Indian food I’ve had in California and trust me I’ve sampled a lot. I will definitely come back. The service was good and the atmosphere is comfortable and cozy.
Birthday dinner for her daughter that wanted Indian and we came here from a recommendation and they were right!!! The food is the best in town that we have had to date! Only issue really is that there is one server so it’s a-little but off but she still pulls through. They do have food runners so that helps but we are used to over the top service. Still a A+!!! You have to try this!! We are also going to try the lunch buffet!!!
Excellent food and service. One of best Indian restaurants in Southern California!
I'd heard wonderful things about this place, but hadn't tried it since it's not nearby. Food was excellent! My new favorite Indian place-just wish it were closer!
Great Indian. Highly recommended
Disappointing, compared to pre-pandemic visits. Service was excellent, but the prices have increased. Be prepared to spend $6.50 for a small side of basmati rice. Dhaal was thin and watery, though flavorful.
Food not good, servers rude arrogant and very pricey.
Having lived in India and Pakistan for 4 years, I enjoyed my lunch and would return for a comprehensive dinner.
Served a cola in a dirty glass- white waxy substance inside and outside top rim of glass. Server apologized and returned with a cola in a clean glass.
Basically, while the food was passable, the level of expertise in the kitchen should improve. The shrimp saag was highly disappointing, the spinach was basically pureed not chopped and the shrimp were under cooked. The expertise shown for the other dishes ordered was mundane.
Not that they lacked flavor, dishes seemed to have been prepared in bulk and then spices and herbs were added later to match diner’s request.
Delicious!!!! Perfect naan, basmati rice and mango lassi. The mushroom spinach, absolutely loved it! Get shrimp pakoras!! I'll be coming back!
the best way to have a vacation to India and not have to board a plane....
Food was amazing! The servers were wonderful. Made good recommendations, for food and wine. Super friendly! All of us want to come back.
The food at Mint Leaf is unique and delicious. Most Indian restaurants have the same fare.
he dishes at Mint leaf are more original and the prices are reasonable. Saff is friendly and attentive.
Mint Leaf, since their opening, has provided a lovely, calm venue for dining, with exceptional (!!) Indian food and friendly, competent service. No other Indian food restaurant in the area has anything to compare.
I've been here several times. I was happy to see that the restaurant made it through the pandemic. It was as good as before the 'Rona. Delicious with great service.
Consistently good, we’ve been customers since they opened, never had a bad experience. Our “go-to”restaurant.
Superb tasting and presentation. Friendly polite. Wish it was closer to our home so we visit more often. Thank you for wonderful evening.
We love Indian food and especially like to try new places! Mint Leaf is definitely a place we will return to!
Wonderful food and great service! We will be back soon.
Always delicious. Very comfortable seating. Courteous and knowledgeable service staff.
I had my favorite Indian dish, chicken tikka masala, and it was as good as any that I've ever had. The restaurant is a bit pricey, but it's worth it because of the delicious flavors and high-quality ingredients. The waiter was very courteous and efficient, and he handled our special requests (extra spices, utensils, an additional take-out order) with aplomb. I will definitely be going back.
I was so excited to find an Indian restaurant not too far away. There are many in the area, but the quality varies greatly. At the least, I expected to find find the flavors I love from my time in India, and Indian cuisine from all over the world.
I did not find those flavors. The quality of the primary ingredients was fine. We had lamb coconut curry, chicken vindaloo, aloo papri chaat, paneer shashlik, rice and mint paratha.
One dish was ordered with mild heat, and the other mid heat. I added spice from their sriracha. The issue was not the heat. There was little evidence of the complex combination of seasonings that evolve from slow cooking in ghee. That does not depend on peppers.
The food was fine. It was as if the mid western grandmother decided to cook Indian from Better Homes and Gardens in the 60’s. Perhaps that is what the north Pasadena/Altadena community wants. In that case, I wish them well. Just don’t go for excellent Indian food.
Wonderful food and the staff is gracious and provides wonderful service.
Everything was fantastic!
As usual, great food and taste. Lamb Vindaloo is always a favorite. Only negative at 6PM on this Saturday nite it was very busy and food was slower than previous visits.. They had alot of takeout going on as well. I was surprised t olearn that they had only one chef on duty.. I'd try to go on a non-weekend night.
One of our favorite restaurants! Comfortable, excellent food, and great staff. I really recommend the biryani and the appetizers. And we've had great luck asking staff for suggestions.
Santos is THE BEST waiter and the food was fantastic! Yummy flavors in every mouthful.
Love this place!
Chicken Masala and Lamb kabobs are delicious. Tried the eggplant served in a coconut milk sauce for the first time. I would order it again. The food is consistently very satisfying and the servers are attentive.
Excellent food and service!
Great place, excellent food and service. It's a little cozy (small) but a overall great experience.
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.
Excellent food! Welcoming crew
