About The Mint Restaurant and Bar

The small village of Prestbury, north of Macclesfield, is home to a surprisingly powerful representation of Indian cuisine in the form of The Mint Indian Bar & Restaurant. Housed in a traditional, whitewashed manse on the New Road, the restaurant’s interior is sleek and understated, with a capacity of 70 seated diners and facilities to entertain large parties of up to 20 people. More importantly the food and service are of the highest quality, thanks to the Mint Restaurant family’s tendency to headhunt the best chefs and waitstaff. A big addition to the diminutive but high quality range of dining options in this corner of Cheshire, be sure to book ahead.

The food was delicious, we all enjoyed what we had chosen, if there is a very minor quibble, we had to wait rather a long time before we were seated, and then for our food to appear, but it was probably worth the wait as we were all well satisfied with our choices,

Always excellent food & service well worth a visit the best Indian in the Area with a nice contemporary decor. My son took all his friends who normally eat at the Indian restaurants in Macclesfield, they were very happy 😃 & agreed it’s the best. I am also returning with my husband this fri.

Really nice food, loads of choice and friendly staff. Will definitely go again. One small point. I personally don't like waiters coming across mid-meal asking if everything is OK, especially when I have a mouth full. They did it 3 times, different person each time. Really, if there is anything wrong, I WILL tell you. Other than that, great.

We enjoyed a delicious meal. The menu has a very good range of specialist dishes in addition to the traditional Indian favourites. The service was excellent and the restaurant has a very pleasant ambience. The best Indian food we have had for a very long time.

Excellent food and wine. Particularly liked the fact that food is served on individual plates rather than in a bowl which always takes up a lot of space on a table. However, the setting is stark with grey being the main colour. There is no warmth about the place.

We were given a friendly welcome. Draft Cobra was good ! Starters of lamb chop and The Mint kebab were very tasty. Mains of Haandi and prawn kebab were excellent. Overall a great experience.

restaurant lacking in ambiance. Where we sat seemed a little depressing as the walls, woodwork and pictures were all grey. But, the food was excellent and the staff attentive, although they might smile a little and be a little more interactive. Can certainly recommend the food, it was perfection.
