Mint Leaf Restaurant Review
I invited Mom, Aunt and Best Friend to go Indian in a bougey-restaurant in Brickell, Mint Leaf. My Aunt and Mom hated it because it's not Cuban Food and it's too spicy but they were partially won over by desert. Funniest part is I got to enjoy their food as to go lunch for the following day.
Food: I loved my dish. The lamb was spicy and sauce was great pair with plain white rice. My aunt's dish mahi-mahi was good but I prefer not to have it soaking in sauce. I was seduced by my best friend's vegetarian plate, it was hearty, spicy, and comforting.
Service: Waitress wanted us to leave because members of my family where unfamiliar with menu. The other guy who works at coral gables location was nice and helpful to us and resolved the burden for "Miss. Thang".
Final Verdict: Food taste, presentation and environment=win. Great for romantic dinner for two or group. Parking is an issue, allow yourself 20 minutes to hustle for it. Dress up this place is classy, you can wear jeans but make sure something in your outfit is classy + upscale, you want to match the ambiance of restaurant and neighboring area.
