                          Very delicious food-most probably the best Indian in Cardiff. Always recommend the Mint and Mustard. Also the only restaurant that we have found that serves King Cobra-double fermented. We had the last two bottles but were assured that more were on order!

                          Had a lovely meal with delicious starters of Keralan Tiger Prawns and Tandoori Cauliflower Wings. These were followed by a very good lamb coconut curry and a slightly disappointing beef curry. Service was excellent, being very friendly and efficient.

                          Service is good, staff are friendly. I love curry but I didn't enjoy the food here. I felt everything tasted of the same spice.

                          Great food. The whole evening was very relaxed and pleasant. No issues with the service at all. I’d recommend Mint and Mustard for a slightly different curry. For example, the swordfish curry was delicious.

                          Food not as good as on previous visits. Bombay Chaat and bhajees were delicious but daal was runny with very little flavour, and the Highway Chicken was boring! Music was rather loud when we arrived but it was turned down at our request.

                          Exceptional food, especially the vegetarian thali and chick pea curry. Prompt service but would rather choose amount I give as service charge, rather than 10% added to bill.

                          Really lovely meal. The menu is some what different from the regular curry house. But everything we had was tasty. My son only eats Keema Nan, there was non on the menu. So we had chilli coriander Nan. It was amazing & would be ordering this again. Staffs were very friendly and helpful! Outstanding food!!

                          We have visited this restaurant many times but the previous high quality of food was not evident. Our grilled main course was dry and inedible and my ‘Highway Curry’ a gloopy sweet pint of tomato sauce infused with 5 dry pieces of chicken

                          My first starter was burnt. I sent it back and the second was fine. The vegan Thali is very good.

                          Lovely welcome. Excellent service and very polite staff. The food was full of flavour and absolutely delicious. We had two chicken curries and one lamb curry and the meat was so tender. We will definitely go there again.

                          Portion size was small. Chicken was not cooked properly (some of the pieces). Vegetable dish there were hardly any vegetables.

                          Food was nice however as soon as we got there we were told we only had our tablet for an hour and a half which was fine until we were being rushed to order everything in the space of 5 minutes. We had the menu explained to us but when we came to order we were told they were not doing the sharing platter after being told we could order it and so we were not given any more time to think about what we wanted- just felt really rushed and was keen to leave

                          Food was very poor. Meat was dry and tough. One starter was clearly frozen food and a jar of sweet chilli dipping sauce. Vegetarian curry was dry and bland. Staff didn’t know how to react when we politely pointed out the quality of the food.

                          I remember this restaurant a few years ago and the food was a lot better. The starter cauliflower wings was undercooked and very uninspiring. We had the veggie curries and neither the matter paneer or the mango curry were that great. We couldn’t taste any mango in the curry and it was quite bitter. Such a shame- the service was quite good,

                          Sadly, we think the food here is not as good as it used to be - it was nice, but no longer outstanding and we were quite disappointed. We eat a plant-based diet and cook a lot of Indian food at home. Previously Mint and Mustard was the only Indian restaurant for miles around that stood out from all the others - now it has (? had a change of chef and) joined them. Just to be clear, we haven't had COVID and lost our smell and taste! We are still likely to go back, but just won't be as excited about our night out as before. The ambience is good and the service and staff are lovely. Obviously it is still a bit quiet because of the pandemic.
