Mint

I really wanted to like this place. When I walked in I was surprised to see the decor was not that of a typical Indian restaurant. With that said I had high hopes for the place. We seated in a nice private area in the back which had a plasma TV and a curtain. Either we were special or they just hated us. This is about the climax of the evening as it just got progressively worse. To start with this place has a separate appetizers menu, which we got along with a wine menu. As we did not really want any appetizers this was a waste and it took them about 15 minutes to bring us any sort of dinner menu. Once we got the menus it took another 15 minutes before we were able to put the order in. At this point I have been sitting around for 30 minutes and all I have gotten was a bottle of red wine which was warmer then room temperature. I mentioned there was a TV in our dining area, and we requested they switch on the Mets game or any sports channel. We got wrestling IN SPANISH! I do find wrestling entertaining, but during a nice dinner, it just does not fit in well. So after waiting 30 minutes to order food we had to wait about 15 minutes for the food to come out. The food itself was nothing special, you can get similar food at any Baluchis, or any other hole in the wall Indian restaurant. Besides the fact that the service was horrid, this place charges for simple things like chutney and even worse has the audacity to add in a service charge. I guess they know how bad their service is, and see it as the only way to get their staff paid.
