Further Information

After running an award-winning restaurant in Bath, The Mint Room have now branched out into Bristol much to the delight of the city’s aficionados of Indian cuisine, with a branch in the Clifton area. Appealing to both gourmands and curry enthusiasts alike, this high-end Indian eatery on Clifton Road offers traditional dishes with a fine dining twist. Start with meal off with some tawar scallops (plancha-seared scallops with a lime and chilli sauce) or some tandoori quail served with alongside a fried quail egg with apple and vanilla puree.

As well as all of the classic curries, The Mint Room’s main course menu is full of inventive modern dishes and gourmet takes on traditional Indian cuisine. We recommend the paneer parcel (cottage cheese and seasonal vegetables flavoured with curry leaf, black mustard and turmeric in a puff pastry on a bed of spinach, broccoli, sambar sauce and tomato chutney) or the tawa seabream served with bombay potatoes. Make a reservation at The Mint Room for a special dining experience in Bristol, but be sure to book in advance as this Clifton hotspot fills up quickly!

The Mint Room is fine dining at its finest. We knew we were in for a treat as when they served us the best poppadoms and chutneys we had ever tasted. The rest of the meal kept pace. Not overly spiced but very aromatic. Indian restaurants are often let down by desserts. The Mint Room is an exceptional to this rule.

Beautiful decor. Food was delicious and good sized portions. Succulent and tender lamb, melting in mouth sole and wonderful tikka chicken. Wasn'T oily or heavy. Felt really good and pleased with everything. Service was impeccable and reasonable priced.

Amazing food, every course was delicious with plenty of choice. We tried both the lamb and chicken - beautifully cooked and all of the sauces were fantastic. Really friendly service - down to earth and good humoured. Would definitely go again for a special occasion!

This is Indian food at its finest in terms of the quality of ingredients, presentation and service. My paneer makhani was a beautifully fine and creamy sauce and I could taste ithe sauce was made with fresh tomatoes. The food was exquisite and everything was perfectly cooked, (crispy bit soft in the middle Nan's, goregeous rice with no nasty artificial colorant additives and delicately spiced) no sign of any oil. The pinot noir wine by the glass was high quality (wines are clearly carefully selected for the wine list) and the service was professional, courteous, friendly and caring. We were asked several times how the food was and my feeling was that any problem would have been handled well (although the only problem was I couldn't eat any more!). This is my favourite restaurant- gorgeous designer decor, food, wine and service- a treat! Note it is very popular so I would highly recommend booking in advance.

An outstanding place with the most exquisite and vibrant food. This is the best Indian restaurant with spectacular food and incredible staff! The food has a contempory style with beautiful unique flavours , and attentive service. It is extremely busy , and yet, you do not feel rushed at all. We followed the suggestions of our waiter and he selected for us the tasting menu and the wines. He was brilliant! This is a real gem in Bristol ,and possibly the best Indian food I have had . I highly recommend a visit. It was our first time eating at the Mint Room ,and we will definitely go back. Thank you so much for a wonderful evening.

Excellent. My partner and I have been several times before, but the neighbours who cam with us had never been to The Mint Room. They had high expectations, so we were a bit nervous, as we had chosen the venue. We need not have worried....from the warm welcome, table ready, cheerful staff, stunning presentation, great food....everything was spot on and although we were the last table to leave, there was no pressure. Portion sizes tend to be on the large size, especially with the fish dishes.......so much so that we reluctantly decided against desserts for the first time. That was probably good for the weight loss diet as desserts here are rich.

Brilliant restaurant. This was our second visit and we loved the food and speed of service. Only slight issue we had was being made to feel like we weren't ordering enough. We ordered a mains each and a couple of sides but kept getting asked are we sure we don't want more as others usually order more. As we had eaten there before we knew the potion sizes were good and what we ordered was more than enough. I gave a good tip as we really enjoyed the meal, but as soon as we had paid the guy serving us seemed to loose interest and almost seemed disappointed with us. Other than being made to feel we didn't order enough the food was brilliant and I would recommend, despite the odd service.

The Mint Room has done what I always hoped would happen here in Bristol and they have taken the lush colours and flavours of Indian cuisine and placed them in the very European context of nouvelle cuisine. Go to the Mint Rooms to get your tastebuds truly tickled; each flavour is delicately presented and looks exquisite. When you can take your eyes off the food for a moment look around you and the same interesting and fascinating touch has been applied to the room, enjoy this as a setting of great charm, then turn back to your food and savour the excellent mix of fresh spices and herbs. You will find the service has the same charm and warmth as the food. Just enjoy it.

We visited on a Monday evening - the restaurant was not busy but the ambience lends itself to a warm inviting environment despite that. The 4 of us had the tasting menu (7 courses, £35 per head) which was excellent. the flavours were sensational and the presentation visually excellent. The service was attentive without being intrusive and the birthday of one of our group was recognised with a special desert. All in all I would highly reccomend the Mint Room -- I know that we will definitely be going back!
