Best Indian Lunch Buffet – I've only been there for lunch buffet once, but the food was fresh, hot and delicious, service wonderful and beautiful environment.
Great food! Great Atmosphere – Very nice decor, clean, contemp. Not your average Indian Joint. Service is a 10. Food is yummy. I think I have found my new favorite Indian Joint!
Best Indian food in the Bay Area – Went there with my husband last week. I was incredibly impressed by food -Tandoori Hors d'oeuvres (a delicious assortment of tender chicken and lamb), Crab Cakes (extremely well prepared crab cakes flavored with ginger and delicate mild Indian spices), Chef Special Sea Bass Tikka (tender, juicy dish that to me is not typically Indian) and Mynt Regal Lamb (flavorful, tender, juicy, prepared perfectly) and for dessert the Sultana Roll (delicous and not too sweet sponge cake stuffed with raisins) and Kesari Pista Kulfi (saffron and pistachio flavored creamy ice cream). Everything was prepared perfectly. The food was not too hot and spicy, well adjusted for the Western palate. I found the combination of flavors and menu options interesting and unique for an Indian restaurant. I was told that many of the dishes are influenced by the Goa flavors which are from a location in India that was once heavily influenced by the Portugese. My husband and I call our favorite dishes mentioned above, the "Goa Special".
I am looking forward to a good selection of after dinner coffee or expresso and some good tea to add to the delicious desserts that The Mynt already offers.
I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to experience delicious Indian food in a nice comfortable and friendly dining atmosphere.
Fabulous Indian Food – Went there a few wks ago, on reading the reviews from the Citysearch. Was NOT dissapointed. Everything was fabulous. The food was not too rich, or oily - everything was delicately balanced. We ordered a lot of food - and everything was fabulous. Our favourites were the Butter Chicken and the Sea Bass. If you like Indian food.... you will love it. If you weren't sure before - try The Mynt - you might be pleasantly surprised. Another interesting thing to note is their Children's menu. While they DO have the standard kid's menu options, there are fun Indian options that kids might be more willing to try. A great way to introduce other food to your kids.
Fantastic Indian food with nice ambience and Great customer service – Most of the Indian restaurants in Bay Area offer same menu and same taste.
This Indian restaurant is not like the typical Indian places we have experienced in Bay Area so far.
Not only does the restaurant offer great food, the service is fantastic and the ambience stands out from the rest of the Indian Restaurants.
Indian food like you have never had anywhere else – Went there by chance a couple of days ago ... now I going to go there by design! Great food. When I say indian food like you have never had anywhere else I mean appetizers like "Crab cake" ... just the right spices, complementing the natural sweetness of the crab. Oh and don't miss out on the "tandoori appetizer plate (?)" can't remember the actual name on the menu ... The lamb was tops.
For the main dish I had the lamb ... It was done just right and served on a sizzling platter. My wife had the sea bass. It was done in a style that I have never seen at an indian restaurant before.
They have a good wine selection to go with the food. The atmosphere is excellent. We ended up having a leisurely long dinner. The aromas of the sizzling food when I entered the restaurant tickled my appetite and primed me for a good meal!
Go there, you won't be disappointed!
Excellent food, service and ambiance – I have visited Mynt several times for their lunch buffet since it has openend. I have yet to be disappointed with the food. It has always been excellent.
Recently I had an opportunity to visit Mynt for dinner with a large group of friends. All the dishes we tried met the expectations of all our friends. The Crab Cakes, Chef Special Sea Bass, Andhra Fish Curry and Dumpokht Chicken Biryani stood out. Several of my friends tasted the Indian Wine (Sula) and were pleasantly surprised with it.
The service is always friendly. They give you enough attention without beeing too overwhelming. The ambiance is very pleasing and is conducive to a pleasant evening meal. I would highly recommend the restaurant for both its lunch buffet during weekdays and especially dinner.
Excellent Indian Food that I have ever tasted in the Bay Area – I have been there twice once with my wife and once by myself and both the times I had an excellent dining experince. The food was excellent and the ambience was great.
If you want romantic ambience, they have it and if you want to go there with kids, they make will sure that you and your kids have an excellent dining experience that will make you to come back again and again.
I have tried Chef Special Sea Bass & Chicken Xacuti and they were awesome. Their desserts (Dissert Platter, Bahushahi & Double Ka Meetha) were mouth watering. I can not wait to go back there once my kids are back from India next week.
Excellent food, great, kid-friendly ambience – We were a large group with noisy kids on a Saturday evening. The staff was very understanding and considerate. The restaurant served very authentic Hyderabadi cuisine. The biriyani and mirch-ka-salan were spot-on! The appetisers were innovative and refreshingly new.
The decor inside the restaurant is very colorful and inviting. There is plenty of space around the tables for those desiring privacy.
We highly recommend this restaurant especially for those with kids who get less than inviting stares at other upscale Indian restaurants. We are definitely going to be frequent diners at this restaurant.
Has redefined my view on the best Indian food available – It was my privilege to dine at the Mynt. The appetizers were outstanding and far superior to any I have previously experienced (especially the Lamb Samosa).
For our main course we shared Chicken Tikka Masala, Butter Chicken, and Tandoori Chicken (notice a theme?). These were all prepared fresh and left us all wishing for more even when our bellies were full.
Throughout our dining we were continually monitored by pleasant and knowledgeable staff members that made all of us feel welcomed and important. The clean and open atmosphere coupled with the balanced lighting added to the experience without seeming overwhelming or overdone.
Please keep up the great work - this was a true and wonderful surprise!
