Good food but not great service. Took a long time to get our food but was great when received! Would try again but not a place to go if you want a quick meal

We went here on Friday night and it was by far, the worst Indian food I have ever had. We ordered the mushroom tandoori to start and it was so dry and bland. The next course was a goat curry and chicken vindaloo. The goat curry had a good flavour but the meat was so tough it was a shame.... More

The food at Mint is always of a high standard, hard to beat in Wellington. We discovered the restaurant just over a year ago and have returned many times they offer great service, also do BYO for wine which makes going out affordable. Also other benefits are they prepare kiddies meals which is unusual for a place of this type,... More

I've been to Mint several time with friends and I think it's one of the best Indian restaurants in Wellington. The curries are creamy and delicious. The only thing I don't care for is their naan bread.

We visited this Indian/Malaysin restaurant for dinner. We were really looking forward to it. We explained that we had to be out of there by 8.30 as we were attending a show nearby. As we arrived at 7, we didn't think this would be a problem - wrong. The entre arrived after 10 minutes - luke warm, clearly reheated to... More

went here following reviews on Tripadvisor. Food was good, but the waitress didn't write down our order and made a couple of mistakes. Also, the bill was more than we thought, and we had been charged about a dollar more on each item, which when we queried it, a lame excuse about "new menus " was offered. However, a new... More

Fantastic under-visited spot in the centre of Wellington. Always charming, with prices that still baffle me with their cheapness.

We had a pre-purchased voucher for any curry and a drink. Both our curries were extremely enjoyable and service was friendly and fast. Highly recommended!
