Who'd expect such great, fresh-tasting and savory Indian food in the mountains of North Carolina?! A friendly employee at a nearby health food store told us that Mint was the best Indian food he'd ever had; we were skeptical, but shouldn't have been! The service was friendly and conscientious, and the food was delicious (and I've been to India)! Not... More

Whenever in Boone, this is a "must do"-at least once! The food is very good, items on buffet are clearly marked. By doing buffet, this allows me to try various items I am unfamiliar with. Being a Tika, Tandori Chicken and Naan "freak", (these are my standbys)-I do venture out and get the goat which is always very tender. I... More

The food and service at this restaurant is great! As someone who doesn't usually like Indian food, I was very surprised at how good this meal was. Well worth the money spent!

This restaurant was better than I expected! The meat sampler appetizer was out of this world! The chicken was absolutely mouth-watering. And the red pepper chutney was very unique, I loved it! We also ordered chicken tikka masala. It was good, but not as good as other places I have eaten. It just felt like it was missing something. The... More

Having traveled and lived in over 65 countries I can honestly say this is the best, most original and highest quality Indian food I have ever sampled. In Boone? Yea, I was shocked too. You can get Vindaloo, Tikka Massala and Samosas anywhere. Mint does a first class job on these but I recommend skipping them and going to their... More

Visited recently on a Thursday night. Restaurant was reasonably full though part was a large group. Good service. Food was among the best Indian food we've had. Had Lamb Vindaloo, Aloo Gobi, rice, naan and mango chutney plus a bottle of wine. Bill only $50. Definitely try this place!!
