Went for my birthday meal, the food was delicious and served quickly. The staff were friendly and bought out a little pudding with a candle for everyone to sing happy birthday! Which was a lovely touch.

We had a lovely meal and a lovely evening at Mint & Mustard. The menu is wide and varied with plenty of choice for the vegetarians and meat eaters in our group. We enjoyed great service from friendly and helpful staff. The 20% discount on orders placed before 7pm (Sunday’s to Thursdays) was a welcome surprise and made the cost of the meal for seven of us very reasonable. Highly recommended.

The only thing if I was being really picky is that the music was slightly high.

Really nice food, starters of spicy calamari, tandoori chicken trio and chicken momo were very tasty, the chocolate samosa dessert was also delightful and I would highly recommend. Staff were really nice and lovely ambience would recommend this restaurant if looking for a fine dining Indian restaurant

Excellent meal. Everyone in our group of 5 enjoyed their different dishes. The signature salmon dish was delicious as usual. The chutneys with the unusual popadoms were different and tasty. Very good!

We went for the Wednesday £14.95 deal. It was not what we were expecting with reduced portion sizes, a choice of one curry that tasted exactly like spiced Heinz tomato soup and a very strange atmosphere. The waitress was lovely but that was the only positive.

Visited this restaurant last night and went for the tasting platter and house red from India. It was simply stunning, flavoursome and sumptuous food. Great presentation and great customer service. The food was aplenty and we left feeling very satisfied. Will definitely visit again and I have recommended this to my friends. Well done Mint & Mustard and thank you. Loved the photos by the entrance too - beautiful black and white ones.

Great flavours but I had a lamb dish and the meat was too tough to eat, virtually every piece of meat was inedible. Not the experience I had enjoyed on my last visit.
