Staff was welcoming, service was unobtrusive, water replenished often, dishes removed quickly
We enjoyed time to catch up while dining, no sense of being rushed
Food was very good. We all agreed we'd do it again

Our daughter celebrated her birthday at Mimimi in November and raved about how good is was, so we went to dinner there this week. The food was delicious. The only problem is that there is only picnic table style seating, with no back. Not very comfortable for anyone who has any back issues. I would highly recommend Mimimi to friends, but I will also be sure to mention the seating with no backs.

One of my absolute favorite restaurants - amazing ramen and the steamed bao with salted egg custard will always be my go-to!

Service was incredible as always.

Went for the vegan festival and they did not disappoint. 7 dishes in total and a glass of wine. Each dish just kept getting better and better. Will definitely be eating there again!

Authentic and unique flavours for the area. A really nice experience with excellent and friendly service. After living in China for three years, this was a very nostalgic experience for me. We wanted to support a local business offering vegan options as there are so few. Definitely recommend!

Went to the vegan food fest. As a person who does not practice veganism at all this was a great experience. The food was incredible, the atmosphere perfect, and the head chef taking the time to come talk to us and ask about our personal experience was a very special feeling.
Thanks for the great food and service! Will return.

There was a strong air movement from the kitchen that felt cold and cooled our food very quickly.

Vegetarian options were limited, we had the crispy fried tofu as an app, it was poorly seasoned and didn’t taste like much. I had the zen garden noodle bowl and was not impressed with the vegetables in the dish

In addition to the regular menu, there was a Dumpling Festival menu of 7 courses and a glass of white wine. We chose the dumpling menu and were not disappointed. Chef Ning is amazing. Every dumpling was quite different and served with a sauce which complemented it beautifully.

We tried the dumpling festival and it exceeded every expectation. The portions were huge and the broth was the best I've tasted till date. We'll definitely go back to try their a-la-carte

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.
