SquareMeal Review of Mint Leaf

"GOOD"

Almost exactly opposite Her Majesty's Theatre, this upmarket Indian occupies an enviable position yet is easily missed beyond its grand, John Nash-designed stucco façade, which reveals few clues. Descend the staircase however and you'll discover a lively, low-lit bar and restaurant, divided up by dramatic wooden runways and slatted screens. Business meetings, celebratory dinners and inquisitive tourists are fuelled by traditional grills, curries and biryanis. Aubergine curry balances smoked creaminess with the bite of springy peas, while slow-cooked chicken thigh in a tomato, onion and coriander seed sauce is unchallenging but satisfying comfort food. Cheese-stuffed naans are a soft and dense highlight, tempura asparagus spears with a sweet chilli dip an incongruous option. Prices are predictably steep for the address, but the restaurant hasn’t scrimped on great staff and service. There's also an excellent range of worldwide wines – US Viognier by the glass is a particularly sturdy companion for Mint Leaf's rich menu.

Great pre-theatre dinner and right next to Haymarket Theatre. Not huge selection but quality very good.

I have eaten at a lot of Indian restaurants in London and all over India but Mint Leaf definitely stands out for me. I visited the fine-dining restaurant and lounge over 5 times in my 4 week visit to London and I was delighted every time during my visit, whether on a weekday for lunch or on a busy weekend for an intimate dinner. The ambiance and service at Mint Leaf is perfect for a romantic meal with your partner or even a nice quiet dinner with your loved ones. They also have a DJ and a live saxophonist playing on Fridays and Saturdays which serves as a good start to any weekend and is totally entertaining!! During my visits to Mint Leaf, I was lucky to try out quite a few drinks from their cocktail menu and I have to say the unique concoctions offered in their extensive bar menu were a true delight. Especially the french attitude, pornstar martini and death in the afternoon. Must try cocktails! The mixed non-veg sharing platter is a great dish to begin your meal with, especially the duck and mahi tikka.The tikkas were extremely succulent and cooked to perfection. Even the paneer tikka was nice, and its sauce/dip worth trying.For the main course, I would recommend the chicken jalfrezi and methi maas with the chilli/ garlic naan. The black dal was an absolute stunner.One of my favorites!! The biryani also had some nice authentic Indian flavours to it. Among their deserts, I would recommend the hot chocolate fondant which is a perfect way to end an amazing meal. A must visit in London specially to satiate the Indian cuisine cravings!

My wife and I were visiting London for the New Year and had booked a table at mint leaf after reading their exaggerated comments on their website. First impression on perusing the menu was the choice was poor and the prices high. The wine prices were also exorbitant. To cut a long story short the food was awful. The worst and by a mile the most expensive excuse for indian food we have ever had. Basic and bland. Wish we'd gone for fish and chips. I hope that anyone who considers visiting this restaurant reads this review first.
