SquareMeal Review of Mint & Mustard Cardiff

Silver Award

Classy, ambitious cooking has marked out Mint & Mustard as the place in Cardiff for Indian food with a sense of occasion. Understated wooden floors, pale walls and simple modern furnishings allow the food to do the talking, and it has lots to say thanks to the expert cooking of the restaurant’s head chef Rahul Chauhan and his talented team. Here you’ll find recipes that are true to their roots, and made from wholesome, natural ingredients whose flavours shine through.

Typically upbeat specialities might run from chicken infused with star anise or nandu (crispy soft-shell crab dusted with curry leaves and garlic, served with avocado and bell pepper salad) to mains of lamb shank Awadhi with parsnips, sweet potatoes and rösti, Goan pork ‘vindhalu’ or tandoori quail marinated with red chilli. Veggies can feast on Punjabi samosas, mango curry or five spiced paneer masala, and there are also meat and vegetarian tasting menus for those who fancy a guided tour through the kitchen’s repertoire.

Finish things off with a ‘chocosamosa’ (a chocolate ganache and almond filled samosa served with caramelised banana and vanilla ice cream), a rose brûlée or mango and passion fruit sorbet. Or, if you can’t decide, opt for the pudding platter, which includes a chocosamosa, rose brûlée and tandoori pineapple.

To drink, you’ll find a list of wines that have been carefully selected to complement the fragrant food, plus a selection of beers that includes Kingfisher, Tiger and a number of local craft beers and ciders. Prices are a little higher than an average neighbourhood Indian restaurant, but considering the quality, Mint & Mustard provides excellent value for money.

Those impressed with what they taste here might consider undertaking one of the restaurant’s cookery experiences. Available to book in three, four and five-hour sessions, they provide the opportunity to learn how to cook some of the more popular dishes served in the restaurant.

Not all curries are crafted alike, and the contrast between a good and a great curry is a tremendous one, says the team at Mint & Mustard. Say goodbye to middle market curries, as Mint & Mustard has been setting a higher standard for Indian dining in this country since 2007. Here, the team doesn't use shortcuts and easy fixes, committed to doing things the right way. Their recipes stay true to their roots, featuring wholesome natural ingredients and classical cooking techniques. In their kitchens, their dedicated chefs craft every dish from scratch with love and passion for their craft, ensuring an unparalleled dining experience, true to Indian cuisine.

Enjoy a symphony of flavours at Mint & Mustard, a curry house in the heart of Penarth, where each dish is a masterpiece of spices, sauces and exquisite tastes. Begin with starters such as cauliflower florets marinated in a hot and spicy masala, served with mango chutney, or the southern style spiced soft shell crab, deep fried to a crisp perfection and accompanied by a Mint & Mustard lightly spiced crab cake.

The soulful curries tell tales of tradition and taste. The highway dhaba murg features succulent chicken enveloped in a thick onion and tomato masala, seasoned with a medley of Indian spices. The Punjabi classic, chana masala, showcases chickpeas simmered in tea leaves and an aromatic sauce. For tandoori enthusiasts, the chicken tandoori awaits – a succulent half chicken marinated with coriander, lemon juice, and turmeric, served with a makhani dipping sauce and masala fries. Mint & Mustard invites you to enjoy the authentic and aromatic flavours of Indian cuisine.

With a two people minimum, there is also a special tasting menu, with the option to add on wine pairing. You'll get a selection of starters, a middle course, several main courses, accompaniments and desserts.
