Serving up popular dishes from across India with a creative, modern twist, we went to see for ourselves how Mynt has quickly become a favourite spot for both dine in and delivery.
To start, we tucked into some samundar ka shobra, a colourful seafood soup filled with delicious fresh seafood. While soup may not be your go-to appetizer at an Indian, this is one not to be missed - we scooped up even the very last drop! The masala battered shrimps were also a group favourite – large shrimps tossed in a generous layer of creamy makhani mayo. YUM! The tandoori vegetable platter is also a great option for vegetarians, especially the stuffed mushrooms and the vegetable samosa drizzled with yoghurt and a sweet tamarind sauce.
Moving on to the mains, they brought us their most highly recommended dishes. Mynt have perfected their Murgh Makhani (butter chicken) dish; large pieces of succulent boneless chicken soak in the rich and luxurious flavours of the butter chicken gravy and the crispy caramelized onion sprinkled on top is great addition to the dish. The warming flavours of this dish make it the perfect comfort food/guilty pleasure. The gosht khada masala (mutton masala) is a good meat option - delicious chunks of tender lamb infused with fragrant spices matched perfectly with the warm garlic naan bread.
The showpiece dish was the Daab Chingri – a mustard-based prawn curry served in a large coconut. It was creamy, melt-in-your mouth deliciousness and deserved extra points for the quirky presentation 🙂 We finished off with a beautiful masala chai.The restaurant is modern and intimate so is perfect for a casual meal and they deliver!
