    There was only one server during the lunch rush, so the service was not as prompt as expected. However, the food was very good.

    We had a dinner reservation on a Friday night and it was busy. They must be short staffed as it took forever to get our food. We always enjoy the food but the wait was way too long.

    Small restaurant with good, authentic food. There are no real cocktails -- you can simply order hard liquor and pick a juice additive. There was not enough staff to cover the restaurant even though it is very small. Our drinks came out late, one at a time, and the last two after repeated requests (we were a table of 4). Unlike our drinks, the food came out promptly and was hot and tasty. The restaurant could use some freshening up..there was peeling paint at our booth and the booths themselves sagged a bit making for an uncomfortable stay.

    The food here is really good. We had the lamb vindaloo (level 7, it was pretty spicy, about at my upper limit), the chicken kalimirch tikka (level 5, delicious and tender), and the green pea pulao, which was tasty with an unexpected crunch. With a somosa appetizer and a naan to split, this was plenty of food for three. We left satisfied. I reduced one star because the service was a little haphazard; they seemed a little surprised to see us but they were pleasant enough.

    This was so yummy! We went for my Dads birthday as he was visiting from the U.K. and his favourite food is Indian! Flavours were delicious! Each dish was really unique. We’ll definitely be coming again!

    The tikka masala was delicious! Everything was great. The basic chicken curry was okay, kind of bland, but everything else was a hit. Especially the samosas. The only complaint was that the wait time to have our order taken was longer than we expected.

    Superb Indian food, diverse menu, and helpful/friendly staff. Their meat offerings include lamb and salmon, not often found in Indian restaurants. This is my favourite Indian place in the Pasadena area.

    Delicious food and good service. A bit hard to get the QR code menu at the beginning, but after that, a very enjoyable experience. The lunch specials are reasonably priced, though expect to pay more here than you would at other similar (non-Indian) restaurants. Will definitely go back.

    We've always had a great time at this restaurant. However, at this particular time, the place seemed under-staffed and the service was not great as before. The food still tasted excellent. Hopefully the owners can address staff issues accordingly to sustain the restaurant's good reputation.

    Food was great! The chicken tikka masala has a spicyness level between 1-10 to choose from. I got the 7 and it wasn’t too spicy. Everything was excellent here except for the internet connection. Definitely making our way back here when we can.

    Maybe try this place for carry out? We sat at a table near the kitchen and watched 25 or 30 orders get picked up by GrubHub drivers, but no one would wait on us people who were stupid enough to come and sit in the restaurant. We had to beg for food, water, and a check. One entrée came out and then after almost ten minutes of no other food appearing we asked them to take that back and bring everything together. Providing hot food seemed difficult for them. We really wanted to like this place as we need a go-to Indian in Pasadena, but there was not a positive thing to say about this experience.

    Great cuisine, but a bit spicy. They allow you to say how spicy you want it from 1 to 10, and that's great. However, I made the mistake of asking for level 4 and I should have asked for 2. But that is just for my taste. As for the ambiance, they had a long table and couples sitting across from each other and I would suggest that they separate those tables. I was a bit distracting having a couple just off to our side. They were a bit noisy, but they left half-way through our meal so it got better. All said, I would certainly recommend Mint Leaf, just prepare yourself for the spicy part or start with minimal heat and see if you can get a table that's not right nest to another group...

    Wow, so many vegan, vegetarian and meat options! No matter what you order it’s all very delicious, just make sure you let your waiter/waitress know how spicy you’d like your food. Great Indian beers, Lovely ambience and cozy. Restaurant and bathroom very clean and easy convenient parking. We will definitely eat here again.

    Small intimate restaurant, delicious Indian food. Waiter was a little disorganized and not quite as helpful as the last time we were there. Seemed a little understaffed as many places right now. Overall a wonderful meal, am sure kinks will work themselves out as time progresses. Will definitely go back!

    Birthday dinner for her daughter that wanted Indian and we came here from a recommendation and they were right!!! The food is the best in town that we have had to date! Only issue really is that there is one server so it’s a-little but off but she still pulls through. They do have food runners so that helps but we are used to over the top service. Still a A+!!! You have to try this!! We are also going to try the lunch buffet!!!
