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.
Valentine's day outing. Girl liked it. Both thought food was average - nothing to write home about, especially if home is India. but, great ambience
Kind of "so-so" for lunch. very quiet though if that's what you are looking for.
Excellent Food, Great Service in a great Romantic Ambiance. I highly recommend it to everyone.
Average. Bukahra Grill on 49th is much better nad has a better upbeat but quiet enough atmosphere. I want impressed with the food or service. Very basic. Not bad, just boring. Staff are hard to undersatnd, their english isnt very good. I would try somewhere else.
Fairly authentic Indian food. Service could have been better.
overall it was ok but totally not worth going for the restaurant week and pay $24.07+.
The service and the food were gorgeous. I normally do not eat Indian food. I must say that the portions were appropriate and filling. The waitstaff was perfectly attentive. It was an absolutely positive dining experience.
I loved their food and their Restaurant Week menu had great options to choose from. I ordered a bottle of White Wine which was properly chilled and served. The wait staff was very friendly and provided great help in ordering the food. It was pretty packed and people were waiting to be seated. I would recommend making reservations.
The food was quite good. Prices are a bit inflated and charging $6 for a bowl of rice with a dish was exhorbitant
My overall experience dining at Mint was very enjoyable. The food was very good everything was cooked perfectly. The waiters were attentive and the decore was very nice. I was a little worried about the lighting that i might have been to harsh but it was very relaxing. I would highly recommed dinning there.
Mint was incredible. I liked it so much I went back a second time during Restaurant Week.
I had the most amazing time dining here and will easily recommend it to anyone. I visited during the Restaurant Week, however opted for the regular menu since i wanted to try their regular dishes. The service was top-notch and the food was delicious. Chilly Fish & Lamb Chops are my new favorites.
The food was ok, but the service was terrible. I went with my two sisters (we are all in our twenties) and we were ignored and talked down to. I've never been treated this way before at a nice restaurant. We didnt have menus for at least 20 minutes and we had to conintuously hail down random waiters to get any help or order. Other tables were being waited on hand and foot-- it wasnt crazy busy in there either, so I'm not sure what was going on. As a result we left a small tip and will not go back.
A bit pricey, but the food was superb!
Very good food, just right spices. Excellent service. Rasmalai dessert was delicious.
This is some of the best Indian food I have ever had. The dishes were spiced perfectly, and everything was really delicious. The prices were a bit high though.
we enjoyed our meal very much, and we're looking forward to returning to MINT
Good food - being British, I was advised that Indian food is not very good in NYC - however MINT seems to buck that trend!
I decided to dine here when i saw these great reviews on opentable and i must say im glad i did. It was a pleasure dining there. Both, the food & service were great and the restaurant had a great ambiance. Im def. going back on Valentines Day !!!
the best indian restaurant i have ever dined at !!!!
My dining experience at Mint was excellent. We started with a bottle of chardonnay and ordered Shrimps and Lamb for our Appetizers. Our Main Course was Tandoori Chicken, some chickpeas (Which tasted excellent) and a Cottage Cheese dish. The food and service all over was excellent and Mint is a def MUST DINE !!!
My dining experiance at Mint was fabulous. After ordering a Turley Zinfandel which is very rare TJ find, we had some lamb chops and chicken kababs. Our server was very friendly and digested great main course options. To sum it up, I would easily recommend Mint to anyone.
If you know Indian food, this place will be very disapointing. I've never had soggy tandoury chicken. I had to ask three times for some mint sause. The size of the Naan bread was 6 inch diameter ... and we paid $200 for 3 people.
Amazing Indian food and such a treat to bring my family here.
Very disappointing! The blandest mushroom soup I've ever had - let alone the fact that this is an Indian restaurant, so I expected at least some flavor. Some of the dishes are unusual and tasty - for example the scallops appetizer, bel puri and chicken curry. The food and booze are VERY expensive, and to add insult to injury, everything, and I mean everything, is extra - papadums, raita, pickles, chutney's, and so on. I was surprised they did not charge for the use of napkins!
By the way, when I told the waiter how disappointing the soup was, he agreed and suggested that if I wanted mushroom soup, I should have gone to a Thai restaurant! He did not take it off the bill! Do yourself a favor - head south to Curry Hill!
First dining experience at Mint.I have business dinners regularly in parties of 4 to 15 people(were 4 for this dinner),especially at Indian restaurants in NYC.Food was excellent,authentic in North Indian flavours and taste,well presented.I tried the house cabernet(complex,low tanins),breads were hot,dough flavorful and done just right.Rogan Josh(goat)and sheek kebabs were outstanding.Waiter was inattentive,frequently had to wave to get his attention.Ambience and decor are soothing,a welcome respite from the overwhelming decor at places like Devi.Tamarind has more energy,impeccable food & service for the same price and a better wine list.Much better overall dining experience than Bukhara Grill in the neighborhood.Would I revisit? Yes.
The Indian cusine is very good at MINT, we strognly recomend it. Very nice attention and perfect location and restaurant modern decoration.
This was one of the best Indian restaurants I have been too. Food was nice and rich, very presentable and service was also good.
The mint chicken was the best chicken I have ever tasted!
The decor was pretty hip and the indian cooking was fine, but nothing outstanding. Service felt rushed and impersonal. For three of us we spent more than $200.00 including beer. I would not choose to return to Mint, but instead try some other Indian restaurants around Manhattan.
MINT has not the traditional look of Indian restaurants. It's modern and stylish. Yet, the food is classic Indian cooking and not as modern and experimentel you might expect from the ambience. But it's tasty and savory - and isn't that what matters?
We very much enjoyed our prix fixe lunch. However, we were slightly surprised when the check arrived - we had requested an additional bowl of rice (one bowl between two of us was not enough to soak up the delicious dahl and other sauces that came with the meal) and found that we had been charged $6 for it! Moral of story: if you are ordering the prix fixe menu, don't request anything extra ...
The hostess sat us at a very cramped table for four when there were others available. One person of our party was disabled so we did not move. But the table was tippy and the waiter said he did not have a wedge to prevent the table from tipping to and fro. It took forever to get our menus. The food was perfectly presentable but nothing outstanding. The music was loud and annoying. All in all, it was a mediocre dining experience and we will not go back or recommend this restaurant to anyone.
This was our fifth or sixth visit and we are great fans of the food. The tandoor specialties are world class and both well done traditional dishes and imaginative variations are on offer. The breads are absolutely perfect. The wine list offers some real gems, but sometimes the best offerings aren't in stock.
Service is generally smooth but occasionally distracted when the house fills up.
In short, this is a personal favorite of ours and we look forward to each new visit.
Food was great and experience fun.
Food excellently cooked and presented. Wine very good too.
This was the worst Indian food I've ever had in NY. Just terrible. I would not recommend.
This was my second visit to Mint. Really excellent Indian Food, great service from folks who care. Worth a trip.
the food, service, room et all was excellant.
There are many excellent Indian restaurants in NYC - MINT is NOT one. My expectations are reasonable - good food, good value and good service. I found the food at MINT to be mediocre, overpriced - not good value ($9 for 4 small samoosas - which probably cost 50 cents each to make), and absolutely the worst service ever - male wait staff all scurrying around and the only one person really doing anything - a young Asian lady. The food menu had to be requested. Lighting was so dim that we had to ask for more candles to read the menu - candles were promptly taken away (only prompt thing that was done). The request for the check was a comical process reminscent of ants passing signals to other ants...$80 for two - starter, main and one beer !!
