I was in the area visiting family and was dying for Indian. I was surprised to find Indian within a 50km radius of where I was staying. I made the 1 hour drive to give it a try. I ordered the Chicken Vindaloo (asked them to make it hot as I am not a novice lol), garlic Naan, Mango Lassi,... More

Possibly the best lamb korma I've ever tasted and I've had the dish from Delhi to London! I knew they had a northern Indian chef after the first bite! All other dishes are almost as good. Impeccable service, moderately priced and only a $10 corkage fee if you bring your own great German Riesling.....a wonderful pairing for this fabulous food!

My husband and I love ethnic food and decided to try Mint while staying in Boone. The food was delicious and the service was wonderful! Recommended to all. Special thanks to Neidi for never letting our waters go dry!

Was surprised to find a Indian restaurant in Boone. Was skeptical because, often my experience with Indian restaurants away from bigger cities have been disappointing. The taste was fairly authentic for the dishes we chose. Was a satisfying meal after 3 days of living on sandwiches, burgers and fries.

The have an amazing buffet on Sunday. All the food was very fresh with a great selection. We took a friend who had never had India food. It was a great way for her to try and experiment with things she may have never tried if she was ordering a la cart. The service was very efficient.

The dinner was fantastic with delious lamb chops but I was also very impressed by the quality of the buffet today. For folks visiting from California or NYC who are now into South... More

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
