We had the lunch buffet at this Indian restaurant. It is a nice and clean and wasn't overcrowded either. Started with Pani Puri and Pakoras. The biryani was good. Also liked dal with naan. The halwa was tasty. Overall a good experience.

Had the lunch buffet this week. When I go to ethnic places, I look for food-locals for verification that the food it what is claims to be. By that measure, this place is authentic. And I found it to be delicious and (sorry if too personal) is didn't upset my stomach as some indian food does. I even had the... More

Good service & food. There are many unique Indian dishes. We had Palak Chaat which is a great appetizer & even good for a meal. Lasooni Saag Pandeer, Shaam Severa Kofta & Punjabi Kadhi Pakora were good. The Teen Mirch Ka Salan was good but too spicy for me, but fine for my wife. For breads the Mint Lachcha Paratha... More

Was there for Friday lunch buffet with colleagues. This place was referred by a Russian friend, they have a very good buffet menu. In starters were street food items including pani poori, pakoras and chaat. Mixed veg salad was fresh, tangy, spicy and good. Papad was crust and very nicely roasted. Tandoori chicken was tender, juicy and had right portions... More

We ordered 8 dishes and a few appetizers- everything was tasty and less oily than you usually get. The portions were on the small side and nothing was spicy, (which is too bad, because we really like spicy foods). The cauliflower appetizer was really amazing! Service was attentive.

I have been to this restaurant three times. Although the portions are small, they offer authentic Indian flavors. The second time when I came here, there was a sign posted on the door of the women's restroom to ask ladies to use the men's room. I know this is not a new restaurant, but I am unsure how long it...

My tandoori chicken was dry and tasteless; my friend was discouraged from ordering the dish she had chosen by the server as it was "too spicy." She didn't like the recommended dish either. Service was attentive, but I don't think we will return.

I don't know what Mynt is like at dinner, but the lunch buffet is hit and miss, with more hits than misses. Some items were very good, while others were just ok. A group of 12 from work arrived about 12:15 on Tuesday and were seated almost immediately, despite not calling ahead. They seem to expect business groups around lunch... More
