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 booked a table for dinner. The food was very good. We would recommend this restaurant.

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.

Good Indian Food. Hidden from the main street NYC locations. Good service and good food. Will go back when in NYC next.

Everything we ordered was delicious. The unique combination of spices enhanced the flavor in each dish we ordered.

My daughter and I enjoyed the fresh samosas, chicken korma, basmati rice and a nice halva. Just enough for 2. The restaurant was quiet in the very early evening. The service was prompt. We both agreed we would return to try more dishes in the future.

I loved the ambiance of this restaurant. The staff was very attentive. Service was a little slow and it wasn't crowded. They were very accommodating of my early arrival even though I had later reservations. This was my first time eating Indian food. Restaurant hopping is a learning experience. I really enjoyed the Mango Lassi and the Chili lamb. Didnt really like the Malabar Shrimp. It was in a coconut milk. Didnt really get to experience much food because it was unfamiliar. I would like to venture back there one day for that delicious Mango Lassi and maybe try a different dish as well. Note: 18% administration service charges aka tip is added (pre-discount)if you use your Living Social voucher.

I ordered chicken tandoori which was quite good. It was served in 4 little pieces. I also ordered mashed eggplant which was very good. The poori bread was excellent.

Had been a couple years ago was great. This time service was slow. Restaurant was almost empty only one other table when we arrived. Food was inconsistent . Some good, tikka masala, vindaloo. Some bad, saffron shrimp- no flavor at all. Large Taj Mahal beer $15.00 and small bowl of white rice which did not come with tikka or vindaloo $6.00. Will not go back.

The lobby entrance does not convey the wonderful ambiance that is inside the restaurant. No one was there to greet us at 7:00 PM in the evening. The staff gave the impression that they were clueless on how to handle customers that had made a reservation. Everyone was nice enough but there was only one other couple in the place and it was still hard to get someone's attention to complete our order and assistance throughout the evening. The food was OK - small portions and NO spice. My 14 year old loved it because the food was not spicy but it did not feel authentic in any way. Not what I was expecting from NYC and overall a disappointing experience.

Lovely and intimate with good Indian cuisine. Happy hour a real bargain in NY! Enjoyed the decor and the lighting was soft and created a wonderful relaxing atmosphere. If in the neighborhood, we would go back.
