About

Serving authentic Indo-Asian cuisine, MINT is the place to gather with friends and enjoy a fun evening out. The retro-contemporary décor is festive and bright. Comfortable cushioned chairs grace the dining room, while plush armchairs offer a spot to relax. The rooftop features multiple private dining cabanas for those wanting to celebrate birthdays, business successes or other special events.

MINT's All-You-Can-Eat buffet is a great deal for a midday break. Happy hour specials offer a good deal on drinks during the late afternoon and early evening. The dinner menu at MINT features a harmonious blend of multiple cuisines, including Chinese, Thai and Indian food. Select from the spicy Hakka chicken or Indian chicken curry. There are plenty of vegetarian dishes as well. For dessert, indulge in the New York cheesecake, mango mousse or simply a cup of Indian masala chai.

We decided to try this place inspite of mixed reviews online. We arrived a little early and were the only party in the restaurant for a while. So the staff were very attentive and I'd give the service good grades. The food isn't really worth writing about. We decided to create a meal of appetizers/small plates. The vegetable samosas lacked salt, but otherwise were okay. The aloo methi tikki didn't have any taste of methi - but otherwise tasted good. The rest of the food was okay, but not memorable. There are better Indian places in town.

Been to Mint many times for their great lunch buffet. This time, went with a group of five. Food, as usual, was very good. But for some reason, they made a couple substitutions to our order without informing us. It didn't matter to us much but I found it strange.
Also, they need to add some insulation to the back of the restaurant. We had a table in the rear and it was quite chilly but the bathrooms were frigid.
Service was fine and my group enjoyed it immensely. Mint will always be one of my 'go to' places in Midtown east..............

The food was very good and the presentation was very nice. The ambiance was pleasing because it was hushed and one could comfortably talk with others. I would go back.

Had lunch at MINT just to try something different. They offered us a menu or the buffet. Although I'm not usually a buffet fan, my lunch companions chose the buffet so I went along. What a pleasant surprise. Not a huge number of offerings but each dish was well done. Somehow they had fried fish that was tasty, light, and crispy! On a buffet! The naan was hot and tasty. The curry was spiced just right as were the other dishes. And they even had one of my favorites - sag paneer. Overall a very enjoyable experience!

No one seemed in charge of service. Food tasty but a bit under spiced ; we were never asked if we wanted it spicy.
Poori bread bland; garlic naan excellent.
Entrees not memorable

Dinner for 3 business colleagues at Mint this week. It was quiet - we could talk - Great! The service was attentive and the Indian food was refined and delicious. We had samosas, lamb saag, chicken tikka, okra and garlic naan. They even have western desserts - we split a tiramisu. We will return.
