After the Harbor light cruise we decided to try the Mint Leaf Thai Cuisine. The food was excellent. The service was very good. I ordered a dish that came in a coconut shell- it was excellent.

I was in Newport Beach for the Boat Parade. It was absolutely packed with people and we didn't get into one of the big name restaurants that we thought would be fun with great food. Since the 4 of us love Thai food we thought we would just settle and go to Mint Leaf Thai Cuisine. As we walked and... More

Visited Mint Leaf with some friends on a week night in January. We ordered a variety of dishes to share among us, and it was all very good. The orange chicken and the BBQ beef were outstanding! Service was fast and friendly, premises were nice and clean, and the location great! Highly recommended - I will definitely be back.

Very, very packed for a brief time at dinner...but then empties out and you can enjoy really fantastic Thai food. Seasoning is dead on but not particularly hot. Green curry is delightful. As is garlic shrimp. Yum! Buy beer and wine from the liquor store a block down as they have no liquor license--no corkage fee

Very good food, freshly made and have unique cooking. We were alone in the restaurant but the waiters forgot two dishes we ordered and then gave us a wrong information about some of them. As we had to eat in separate times due to her mistake, we assumed we will get some compensation - we were wrong. So... the food... More

We were there for dinner on a Saturday night during the holiday season. A large party of drunken ugly sweater party attendees dropped in that made the event at least more interesting (albeit noisy). One woman in a mini, fishnets and boots fell off her chair holding a baby which was hilarious. The baby (maybe 15 months old) belonged to... More

Pad Thai with chicken was delicious. $10.95 for a good size portion. My friend had Mongolian beef and it was good. Also got the shrimp appetizer which are wrapped in fried noodles ands skewers stuck in pineapple top. Delicious. No alcohol at this restaurant.

Mint Leaf is one of favorite casual dinner spots in Newport, we have even come by boat as there is a public dock close by. It's a small place and family run so it has a very comfortable feel to it. They don't have a liquor license so bring your own wine and there is no corkage fee. There is... More

Have been to this place several times, they do a great lunchtime special. The curry's are very tasty and the service is fast and the restaurant is comfortable. Will definitely be back again.
