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.

Came here for the first time with my boyfriend and we were absolutely blown away with the food!! I’ve never tasted Indian food of this quality, and the restaurant was very clean and tidy. The presentation of the food was immense and the cocktails were fab! Will definitely be coming here soon😍

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.

Food very, very tasty especially the starters. Not a huge menu unlike other restaurants thus allowing the kitchen to concentrate on the few.

on entry they were taking covid precautions seriously which is good

Food presentation very good all dishes we ordered were very different and went together well

I am guessing they use a proper tanoor

The biryani with its naan cover is well worth a try and well worth the money

The deserts should be tried even if you order a few and share

The food was really very good, well prepared and presented. The flavoursome combinations of vegetable, meat and fish dishes meant that one had a real range of foodstuffs and there was neither an after taste nor a feeling of gluttony. I would heartily recommend this restaurant as one of the delights of Cardff.
