Mint Leaf Review

Book a table at Mint Leaf

Top 10 things to know about Mint Leaf:

1) Certain conspiracy theorists would have you believe that there is a secret society, hidden away from sight, dictating and controlling every facet of our humdrum lives. While that has yet to be confirmed, what we now know for sure is that there is an excellent and ravishingly stylish Indian restaurant operating almost entirely undetected out of a basement in central London; which may disappoint the conspiracy theorists, but is pretty great news for the rest of us.

2) Mint Leaf is located on a stretch of prime real estate between Trafalgar Square and Piccadilly Circus, an area most Londoners probably know like the back of their hand. And yet the restaurant’s existence is revealed to the hoi polloi only by a modest neon sign and entrance amid all the ostentatious theatres and billboards along Haymarket. Those “in the know” – the Illuminati, freemasons and restaurant critics, presumably - simply hop in an elevator and descend to the restaurant’s foyer, away from prying eyes.

3) The venue’s penchant for classy understatement extends to its dining rooms, sectioned off by sleek walnut panelling into intimate, endlessly cosy dens which can seat groups of all sizes. Low lighting, comfy armchairs and discreet background music make it an ideal location for an after-work meal, pre-theatre West End drinks, or secretly determining the fate of all mankind, if that’s what you’re into.

4) Start by toasting world domination over a few drinks from the cocktail bar. Mint Leaf’s signature libations include the extravagant Deadly Berry, and the Cocco Locco, which blends bourbon and Kahlua with Baileys and coconut flakes.

5) The appetisers – seared Tawa scallops, tempura asparagus and honey-infused grilled quail, to name but a few – are almost meals in themselves, so make sure to save room for the main course.

6) Mains options include sharing a slab of excellently prepared meat from the grill, or a lovingly authentic curry, with naan and rice on the side. In particular, the lamb rogan josh with Kashmiri chilli and saffron rice: a meal fit for a king and/or secret-society overlord.

7) For dessert you may wish to take up the offer from the waiting staff of a surprise medley of bite-size treats, such as pistachio ice cream and delicious passionfruit cheesecake. No point in wielding supreme power over humanity from the shadows if you can’t live a little!

8) If you’re just passing through, the brightly-lit 22-metre bar is an ideal spot for casual, early-date or pre-night-out-in-London drinks. Also, cocktail masterclasses are occasionally hosted by resident mixologists, for those looking to hone their craft.

9) If you’re catering for a large group (of power-hungry demagogues?), Mint Leaf has you covered with a series of private rooms and AV equipment for up to 100 people. The entire venue can be exclusively hired for corporate events, fashion shows, Stonecutters meetings, etc.

10) A superb venue for all your masterminding needs, Mint Leaf is a hidden treasure in the heart of London thanks to its cosy, intimate surroundings and fantastic Indian cuisine.

“A great meal and buzzy venue, but at best Mint Leaf is really just Posh Curry. However it makes a change from the sticky tables and oil sodden curries we are normally accustomed to.”
