With electric-blue uplighting and lacquered floors reminiscent of a nightclub, this darkened basement venue strikes a moody pose that comes into its own during the evening, when the slick surrounds
and pumped-up Indian menu draw theatre-goers and parties out on the town. The bar’s extensive cocktail list is a big attraction, and when the kitchen is on form it can deliver ‘exceptional’
contemporary dishes ranging from curried crab and mackerel cake with masala mayonnaise to spiced venison with spinach purée and crisp okra, along with shareable seafood platters. Despite the odd
gripe about ‘bland’ food and inept service, no one disputes Mint Leaf’s stylish, ‘chicly opulent’ decor and minimalist layout, with discreet partitions and cocooned tables creating a mood of luxe
intimacy. Readers reckon that regular prices are ‘exorbitant’, but myriad special offers are there for the taking.

But I digress, no cosiness in this instance, once I had enjoyed my peach bellini there was some serious drink-making to be done. Our little party took our seats at the bar and got ready for our masterclass with Mint Leaf’s Bar Manager, Javed.To kick things off, Javed demonstrated how to create three different cocktails, each time giving us a bit of history about...

A few years ago, Nick and I were having drinks with friends in Soho. As the evening wore on, our bellies started rumbling and we decided that we needed to find somewhere to eat. One of our friends suggested an excellent Indian restaurant that he had been to and called Directory Enquiries to get their number. Listening to one side of the animated conversation was very amusing. “Hello? Yes, I need a phone number for the Green Leaf restaurant in central London. Green as in the colour and Leaf as in part of a tree… Really? No listing? Maybe check again. It’s G-R-E-E-N… Yes, I’m sure it is in London. No it hasn’t closed,...
