So, yet another chance to pitch The Mint Room against Nutmeg, head-to-head: I LOVE my job! The Mint Room simply oozes class, and mystique; cleverly coupled with really friendly, welcoming staff, and a few very clever touches that I’ve still not seen replicated anywhere else – like really interesting papadums and pickles at the start, and amazing and delicious chocolate-covered frozen mint leaves (these take longer to write about than to eat!) at the end. It’s little touches like these that make this place stand head-and-shoulders above the mainstream of ‘good Indian’ restaurants. My dining companion this time is a vegetarian, and they said that the veggie and vegan offerings on the menu here were amongst the very best that they’d ever seen; and they confirmed that the quality of the eating absolutely met the billing! There are regular tweaks to the menu at The Mint Room, and the most recent have introduced even more non-meat options – the mushroom starter is delicious – and there’s always remarkable chutneys to go with your papadums – for example, a superb coriander, mint, green chilli, and yoghurt blend, which is livid green, and startlingly delicious! They still make the standard-sounding into something exceptional – the Lamb Saag for example; and the new 'Duck Sheek Kebab; and the service is consistently excellent. The recently-introduced charges for the initial papadums have upped the overall price a little, and the prices here reflect the quality, and the location, and the decor, and the locale; so, it’s not cheap … but it is great value for a memorable meal out!
