This among my favorite restaurants if not MY FAV for Gluten Free options and the best value with great service and probably some of the best cocktails. I usually sit at the bar and the casual to-go crowd is hopping every night and a nice room for private bookings.

The food was excellent, the service was excellent, the atmosphere was nice. The only complaint I had was the confusing pricing when you order a combination of meats, but that will not prevent me from going here again. Just beware that when you order a combo ask the server for the total price before placing your order.

Celebrating a birthday we attended for brunch on a Sunday. The brunch menu was not available for some reason although it was just about noon. The appetizers were very good however the Teriyaki Chicken left much to be desired. The chicken pieces were rather large and could not be cut with the serrated knife that was provided. Overall we were disappointed as we had heard great things prior to visiting.

The family has enjoyed coming to Mint for years but this night was our last. The food is always consistent but service was lacking. The servers unfamiliar use of the iPad ordering system creates a less personal and fragmented service. Maybe this has always been Mint's policy or it is new as of renovation/expansion but they nickel and dime the guest for everything. $1.50 here, $2.00 there, $3.00 for this. Yes, they are minuscule charges but it becomes very annoying. We over heard other tables ask for a side of extra sauce and extra peanuts and they were told it would an additional charge. The guests even questioned it. I was afraid to ask for soy sauce, they may have asked for $0.25 to unlock it from storage before charging me additional fees. Being nickled and dimed over and over isn't worth it. Best Thai, Pakpao or Bangkok Dee are just as good as Mint and you won't have to bring your loose change.

Asian mint offers a nice array of pan-Asian dishes. I tried the iced matcha tea latte- it was refreshing, not too sweet and paired well with the dishes I ordered. I started with the veggie summer rolls. The rolls are generously filled with sprouts, carrots, lettuce and other vegetables. They rolls are quite filling. They are presented with a peanut based dipping sauce. The sriracha chicken stir fry delivered consistent heat and spiciness without making it uncomfortable to eat the dish. Ask for Levi - he knows the menu and makes great recommendations.

The food is consistently good here. We loved the summer rolls and seaweed salad appetizers. The Sriracha Chicken, Pad Woon Sen, Pad Thai and Shrimp and Chicken Basil entrees were delicious. I think the Pad Thai is one of the best in Dallas. I recommend substituting chicken pieces for the minced chicken in the Shrimp and Chicken Basil.

Food excellent but note no sushi on Sundays. We were disappointed.

Waitress was very nice. The problem was the service was too fast. The appetizers and dinner were delivered in five minutes. Then we got the feeling we were being pressured to leave so they could turn over the table. We hoped to relax ans savor and that was not possible. The waitress kept stopping by asking if we needed anything else. We just wanted to have a conversation!

The dishes here are well done, but the value at dinner menu prices is questionable. Service started off slow, but improved once we placed our order. Had two types of crispy fish, orange chicken, ceviche which was too salty and a California roll. Orange chicken was probably the best item. Wine pours were small considering the price. This place is always busy, but I think that speaks to the lack of good Asian places in Dallas rather than the strength of Asian Mint.

We were lucky enough to be in Dallas for the 'soft opening' of the just expanded and redecorated Asian Mint. Everything about our evening there was remarkable from the very attentive staff to the high quality of the food. Even the espresso was great - which I have NEVER ordered at an Asian restaurant. Bravo ! ! ! Wish that we lived closer or that the owners would open a restaurant on the Coast of Maine.

Cozy, vibrant little place a friend of mine recommended my wife and I. Our first visit was pleasant, and my wife decided she'd like to dine here again.

I made reservations for two since last time we dined in, even with reservations for 4, we ended up waiting 15 mins, which wasn't bad for prime time. We were delighted to be seated right away this time at 8:45, by Vena, our waitress. She was quite friendly and energetic.

Looking forward to dessert( who doesn't?) since we've never had them before, we skipped apps. We had crab fried rice, and garlic quail as entrees, followed by coconut ( they ran out of mango) sticky rice and green tea ice cream cake, and two Thai iced teas.

Thai iced teas came out quickly, and they were delicious. Food took a reasonable 10 to 15 mins. Vena brought them out with a smile. My wife's crab fried rice was per her liking. My garlic quail wasn't what I had expect. Perhaps I read the description incorrectly, but it was basically unbattered fried quail on a bed of sautéed cabbage with soy sauce and a side of rice. That said, my only complaint was the bed of cabbage had too much soy sauce. I needed another side of rice, but never got a chance to get one. Vena didn't come check on our table once until my wife was finished. She walked past our table a couple of times, but never said anything to us. In hindsight, I should've called her over.

After finishing my meal and packing up leftovers, Vena brought dessert. The coconut sticky rice was tasty. The green tea ice cream cake was fantastic. A scoop of green tea on top, and a layer of green tea between cake, it was absolutely delicious.

Overall,aside from service, it was a great dining experience. We'll definitely come back and try more dishes. Price for the quality and quantity is very reasonable. We live in Arlington, 45 mins away, so we had to take some Thai iced tea to go! Great little get away for special occasionals. We'd frequent it more if we lived closer.

Service was ok. Waiter was very attenttive at the begining but when he brought out our food 3 out of 4 orders were wrong. He left tofu out of my food in partciular and when i mentioned that my food was missing tofu, he simply brought out a plate of uncooked tofu and asked me to mix it in my food. i then asked him to take it back to the kitchen and mix the tofu and my food together on a hot skillet in the back so the tofu would be cooked and prepared withthe sauce and seasoning of my food. Also the water tasted like chlorine water and everyone at the table had to keep buying bottles of water throughout the course of dinner. I have been here several times before and I dont recall having such a bad experience with food or service.
