Have been here a number of times and the food is consistently excellent with a varied menu and reasonably priced.

Only 2 minutes drive off the strip with parking right outside.

Authentic Indian restaurant.

Valentine's Day buffet was excellent and not at an elevated price! First time at this particular Indian restaurant, but we will be back. All food choices were fresh and hot--nice choices for salad bar. Just the right amount of 'heat' .

A friend brought me here a few years ago and it was my first introduction to Indian food. This restaurant made it my favorite cuisine! Everything on the menu is fantastic and even if you have favorites, you will always want to try and new dish as they have a great variety of options. The service is very friendly and they are more than accommodating to preparing your order to your tastes. I highly recommend this restaurant!

Las Vegas has so many restaurants it's hard to pick one that's "so good time after time" but the Mint does it. When your seeking great Indian food and a restaurant that delivers that again and again you won't be disappointed.

Fantastic food and great service - went with my parents for Christmas meal - All three of us loved each and every dish - portions are nice size, time to prepare was good, place is clean and simple(could use a little more authentic decorations) and the restaurant was full of Indian families enjoying their native foods. A must if you are in Vegas, about 1/2 mile off the strip.

One downside - we got there when they were cleaning up from a party or afternoon rush - mopping the floors with very strong smelling bleach cleaner when the restaurant was full of guests is not a good idea-just use the broom and do the deep clean off-hours. Getting past that short term concern u have to repeat the food and service was absolutely fantastic

This was probably the best Indian buffet we've had. The food was cooked perfectly, the tandoori chicken was moist, and everything had just enough heat to make it interesting. Fresh naan was brought to the table and the service was attentive. And for those of you looking for something to do after lunch, it's across from the Atomic Museum. :-)

My boyfriend and I love Indian food, and I made a reservation at Mint Indian Bistro based on the recommendations I read on Open Table. We had a great meal, with plenty of spice and flavorful dishes. The food was well-prepared, fresh, and it came without a long wait. The staff was very attentive, and the overall mood of the restaurant was relaxed and pleasant. I appreciated that there was no loud music and that we could easily have a conversation.

We felt that we received a very good meal and that it was very reasonably priced. It was roughly a 10-minute taxi ride from our hotel (Bellagio). You will need a car, as it would be a long walk from the Strip.

We were speaking to an Indian gentleman who works in the Wynn Hotel and asked him to recommend a good Indian restaurant in Vegas. He pointed us to Mint, so we gave it a go.
It is not on the strip, but a $20 taxi ride got us there and from the outside it didn't look spectacular, well compared to the rest of Vegas.
We went inside and were greated quickly and seated immediately with menus.
We had a few questions about some of the drinks we wanted to try and some of the food and the wait staff were attentive and immediately available.
Soon after we had placed our order and took some of the recommendations from the staff, the restaurant suddenly got busier and every table was filled. I did expect the service to deminish, but to my delight it didn't at all. The empty plates were taken away quickly and we were not sat around waiting for any food or drinks.
The food was delicious and I highly recommend getting one of the set menus as I got to try foods I would never have ordered alone. The flavours were complex and layered and just tasted superb. My tastebuds were dancing and even the hot spicy curries tasted great as it was not overpowering but flavoursome. We ended with Kheer (Cardomom spiced rice pudding) which was refreshing and well textured. You could tell everything had been made from scratch and using high quality ingredients. I am salivating now just typing this and remembering how much we enjoyed the evening.

My second time there and it was very good. Did the tasting menu and it was great. They were very busy but the staff was very accommodating. They need to update their cocktail and bar menu (torn and ripped pages) and need to order items because they were out of a lot of beers and spirits.

Loved our dinner and service, absolutely wonderful. Samosas to start--lamb--were perfect, right level of spice. Chicken tikka masala was wonderful, a little different to what I'm used to and a great change. Spouse had chicken, perfectly cooked. Shared carrot pudding, first time ever and it was amazing. Service couldn't have been better, from the warm welcome to the warm good night, really stellar. Small and boring room, nothing wrong with it but 3 stars, nothing spectacular either. A great meal with great service. I'm making out next reservation right now.

I've been coming here for years, and they always impress with taste and food quality. Consistently great food and service is why I keep coming back.

On the downside, they don't honor reservations and it's a small place, so be prepared to wait if it's busy.

I'm not a fan of buffets. Apparently Mint *only* does buffet for lunch. I figured if anyone could pull it off, it would be Mint. They did put out a nice variety of dishes, but much more least common denominator preparations of them. This is still a nice find for a quick, quality lunch. It's is just a big comedown from what they do for dinner (see review of dinner 28 June 2014).

India's rich and evolving culinary tradition is on full display at Mint. Mint does not shy away from spices, as evidenced by their Inferno line. We got a lamb vindaloo at spice level 10 which approached the heat of my own cooking, which few restaurants will do. A house specialty curry still managed to be pretty and even subtle at a spice level of 9- not every chef can pull that off! With vegan and gluten-free dishes, there is truly something for everyone here.

Coming from Chicago, which has quite a few very good Indian restaurants, it has been a major disappointment to go to one place after another to find bland or very overpriced Indian food. Mint Bistro, however, is one of perhaps two restaurants that are on par the food back in Chicago. The flavor is excellent, always consistent and for those who are vegetarian or vegan, it is safe to say that Mint "get's it". The prices are very good and most of the time, I am able to take a little food home for lunch the next day. The only downside is that like all the Indian restaurants here, the samosa's are just okay. Far, better than most, but missing...something to make them pop. Lack of curry inside? Not sure. Still, we go here just about once a week.

I've been to Mint quite a few times and the food is consistently very good. The extensive menu offers a ton of options for those with dietary restrictions and the waiters are pretty good at making recommendations. So far it's my favorite indian restaurant that I've been to. Just wish it was in a nicer location.

The place is very non-descript in a little strip mall. Do NOT be deceived by appearances. This is the best Indian food I have had bar none. In NYC, LA and my home in San Diego I have not found Indian food of this caliber. I am not going to go into details or this would take an hour to finish. Suffice it to say GO, ENJOY, there may be a bit of a wait but it is well worth it. Reasonable prices, good sized portions and top quality ingredients, and amazing preparation make for an outstanding meal.

During lunch they offer a buffet and have about 8 different entrees ranging from vegetarian to those with meat, gluten free options and a variety of sauces and accompaniments. This is a great way to sample different dishes without having to order the entire restaurant. But, Indian food is not for those with a low tolerance for spicy (hot) food. The fresh naan is wonderful and great for dipping in these flavorful dishes because most entrees do contain a good amount of heat (probably 3-4 On a Thai 1-5 scale). Worth checking out and they open at 11AM which reservations aren't really recommended till after 12PM.

Excellent food in an unexpected location. We went here because of the great reviews on Trip Advisor and it was great. Food is outstanding and very fairly priced. The atmosphere and decor are nothing great and the location is in a strip mall. But that makes it even more interesting. Again, the food was absolutely superb and service was very nice.

We were in Vegas for a convention at one of the big hotels and wanted to get out of the hectic environment and try a local Indian restaurant. After reading reviews on Urban Spoon and other sites (NOT the Zagat app, which is useless) we settled on Mint Indian. Service was excellent; great international beer list; extensive menu and the food was excellent!
