The only Indian restaurant to be awarded by Time Out New York. The 110 seat restaurant is located within the newly renovated San Carlos Hotel with a street and lobby entrance. The exotic atmosphere whisks you to Southeast Asia as soon as you open the door and spot the stone waterfall cascading down the wall. Orange, red, and fuscia drum lights are snuggled together throughout the long dining room, and painted panels of mint, yellow, and green hang over striped banquettes. There is a semi-private room complete with audio video equipment that seats 12. Mint is a labor of love for Gary Sikka, and he is taking great pride in bringing an exemplary dining experience in an atmosphere that is both tranquil and exhilarating. The definition of mint is "an aromatic refreshing herb that serves as a central ingredient in accompaniment sauces in Indian cuisine." That can also be said of the new restaurant that is its namesake.

"The food we ordered was good: tandoor lamb chops, saag paneer, chana masala and a couple of naans and I did enjoy the Lychee martini. But even with a Groupon, this was expensive. I dont mind paying for quality and usually withGroupons I always walk away feeling like I got a great deal. But to order 3 entress and not have them come with any rice is ridiculous and petty. I had a nice time and we had good service and if I worked in the area I would give the lunch buffet a try or the dinner take out. I also noticed a prix fix dinner which looked like a better deal but you could not use the Groupon for that. I live in Westchester and would rather go to Chutney Masala in Irvington for high quality Indian food with good service and nice ambiance"

"We walked over while staying for the night to look at colleges. We all loved our food. My pasta with duck confit was outstanding. The octopus app was tremendous. The fried calamari delicious and also huge. Reasonably priced glasses of wine. Waitress was lovely. It was just what we needed after a long drive. If my son is lucky enough to attend Brown, I will keep coming back :)"
