This is one of the best restaurants in New Brunswick. The food is fresh and so tasty. The service is excellent. They are truly a hidden gem. I hope more folks find them!

Always blows my mind with how delicious and beautiful everything is. We are working our way through the menu and have yet to find something that didn’t immediately make us exclaim how great the dish is.

It was the perfect place to celebrate a birthday. All physical distancing rules were applied in a way that didn’t hinder the experience. Loved the recommendations that our server made!

Wanted to eat here for a while and when we finally did it didn’t disappoint. Authentic, well made, exciting Asian food in an atmosphere you would expect in Montreal.
A welcome addition to New Brunswick dining scene highly recommended.

Decor does not match the type of restaurant this is trying to be. Owner was only person working and we were only table. Friendly and offered complimentary tea with meal. Food was disappointing.

While we had to wait a long time for our food, it was easily the best Chinese either of us had ever had. The staff was very pleasant and the unique surroundings made it all that much better.

The food is tasty and authentic. We went early and on a Sunday so it wasn't busy. Relaxed atmosphere, clean and tastefully decorated. The staff was friendly, service was good.

Amazing. Nothing else like this in NB. Better dumplings than I had living in both Montreal and Vancouver. The chef is passionate about ingredients, his cuisine, and it’s history. He made this reluctant veggie-eater polish off a whole eggplant dish and rhapsodize about it for days. I’ll be making the drive from Fredericton again soon just to get back to Mimimi.

Hubby and I went with another couple. Loved the minimalist décor. The waitress recommended we choose 3 entrees and share them which I think was the right decision. We ordered a couple of appetizers (shrimp dim sum was great) and 3 entrees (pork medallions - yum, a ground pork dish - double yum and a beef/tofu dish - not a fan), the plates came out one at a time and there was plenty for all of us. We really enjoyed the setting and the way in which the plates came out (one was pretty much gone before the next plate arrived), allowing us to chat and enjoy our time together. The atmosphere was very laid back and we didn't feel the least bit rushed. At the end of the meal, the owner came by our table to chat as well which is a very nice touch which made us feel valued as customers. Will return!

My Family and I enjoyed our evening at Mimimi earlier this week! The food options available were many. There is something for everyone so, don’t be afraid to try “authentic” Chinese cuisine. There are no egg rolls, sweet and sour chicken balls, or dried garlic anything. Instead, we experienced one of the most flavourful, delicious and interesting meals that Saint John has to offer. The ambiance was lovely and our service was exceptional. All dishes were explained And included a lesson on which region of China each came from. We loved every minute of our evening and look forward to returning very soon.
