Went here with friends at 1 pm on a Saturday. Seating was quite full and congested, but we were quickly given a table. It was buffet style. It included a whole bunch of delicious Indian food. Most of the names I couldn't pronounce , but never fear, it was delicious. Only thing I didn't care for was some sort of... More

Service was prompt. Seating was congested. Food sucked. The aloo tiki chana chat had aloo that was either overcooked or had been old from the previous day. The cauliflower subji was not thoroughly cooked. The naan was good and the mint chicken was good. The spices in the food were not fresh and not adequate. It's an indian restaraunt geared... More

I often wish there was a rating between very good and average. Because I thought this recent trip to Mint was somewhere between. We hosted an Indian Restaurant blind tasting at our home last night. We got chicken Tikka Masala and Lamb Rogan Josh from Tandoor, Guru, Mint and Vimla's. And then the seven of us rated the dishes. It... More

Lots of choices on the buffet, including a couple of unusual options. The goat was excellent, as was the chicken palak. The service was attentive, and we appreciated our window seat, with anise view of the strollers up and down Franklin St.

Service and food were absolutely wonderful. Went on a weekday, no wait and seated right away. We were pleasantly surprised with the quality and amount of food served.My eyes were bigger than my stomach so had a bit to take home.

I love this place! I have been here many times and the food is excellent. I have yet to try the mimosa brunch but I am sure that is excellent as well. If you like Indian food I definitely recommend this place.

I went in with fair expectations after several colleagues told me about the great food they have had at Mint. Unfortunately, my visit did not live up to the hype. I visited on a Friday afternoon for lunch around 1130 before there would be a rush. I stood at the counter waiting to be seated for several minutes and even... More

Mint has a fine variety of very tasty food. You can get it as spicy or as mild as you'd like. Highly recommended.

The lunch buffet is delicious. Very authentic Indian food and as much as you want. The Sunday brunch is especially tasty and has mimosa up at the bar (all you care to drink) so it makes it especially attractive to some of the local college students. It is a cloth napkin kind of buffet, not a loud/crowded/cheap sort of buffet.

We took our daughter's family to the Mint to celebrate two birthdays. I believe we would all say that the food was good. The challenge was communicating effectively with our server. I asked for Perrier or Pellegrino mineral water. I received a Nestle's bottle of regular water. Several people had questions about certain items on the menu or asked for... More
