Mint Cafe Best MEditerranean food I've had hands down! – The most comfortable place to relax and have a peacefull dinner with the Family or grab a Kabob for lunch with the co-workers. They delivered to my office around the corner at least once or twice a week. I offically addicted to Hummus!!!!!
Awesome place!!! – My girlfriends and I love this place! We eat here almost every week for lunch or dinner. I got the chicken swarma the first time I went and I haven't been able to order anything else since! The seasoning on the chicken is awesome and it comes with this amazing garlic spread. All their sides are awesome too! The best thing is you can bring your own wine and pay a minimal corking fee! I will continue to visit this place frequently!!!
Mint Cafe Rocks! – We love this place, and we keep going back for more. This is one of the best casual lunch/dinner locations in Houston that offers such a great menu and such flavourful food. Remember to try the Labneh as an appetiser.
The service is friendly and quick.
A hidden gem in the galleria area!
Great Place, and they deliver! – If you are lucky enogh to be in a 5 mile radius they will deliver! Great change of pace to ordinary Chinese take-out. The food was great and I felt like I got alot for what I paid for. Will definately order from Mint again!
Wonderful Mediterranean Flavors, Prompt service; A hiden gem in the Galleria – The Mint Cafe is a delightful small grill with seething with Mediterranean flavors. I travel all over the country (40+ weeks/year) and around the world on company dollars. What I always look for first, is the food unique, and well prepared. Second, is service is professional, prompt, and courteous. Third, is the hot food hot and the cold food cold. The answer at the Mint Cafe is a resounding YES! You can spend 5x as much and only get half the flavor or half the service. In my recent visits to the Galleria, I?ve always found myself drifting back to The Mint Cafe because it is all so delicious.
They start you out with fried pita and olive tapenade. I?ve had the Beef Swarma (roasted beef), Chicken Swarma (grilled chicken), Kafta kabob (pressed ground beef with spices) all alongside of some delicious Tabouli and a large serving of hummus with olive oil and paprika. Each has been delightful and filled with wonderful citrus flavors, olives, and spices. The food is not ?spicy hot? but aromatic and exotic. The pita is a thin, not doughy, melt in your mouth, wonderful accompaniment to your meal.
It is BYOB, so do stop and pick up some of your favorite wine or beer. To finish the evening you can sit outside and enjoy shisha (hookah). I also enjoyed the Turkish Coffee and a small Baklava. Honestly, you can spend a lot more, but I?m not sure you?ll get much more than fancy linens. I?ll take the flavors, quality, and service of the Mint Cafe any day.
My only hesitancy to recommend it is that it will get crowded. So please enjoy, but don?t tell everyone.
Minty Fresh and Tasty – Saw a description for Mint Cafe on Citysearch and decided to try it out. What a great little place! We decided to order a few appetizer plates, thinking we wouldn't have any trouble polishing them off. Wrong! The portions were HUGE! I found the Hummus to be a bit bland, but they probably have some of the best Baba Ghanouge that I have tasted - you could tell the eggplants had been roasted, which totally brought out the flavor. The Kibbeh is not worth ordering, but the Ardishawki (steamed artichoke with light garlic, olive juice, cilantro and lemon juice was amazing - beautiful and totally worth the effort of eating! The Grilled Halloum was nice and tasty as well as the Kafta Kabob Halabi (although the halabi part, "spicy sauce" was basically a red bell pepper blend, the grilled meat was delicious). I was utterly delighted with this find and can't wait to go back again. Oh yeah, and one thing that is not mentioned on any advertising is that it is BYOB!
Great mediterranean place. – Just came back from having lunch at Mint. I must say it was a great choice. I had the mint chicken sandwich wrapped in pita bread and it was very tasty. Very well decorated place and has a good vibe to it. I will recommend it to my co-workers.
Love the Lamb – Whether I get the Zucchini and Lamb dish on Sunday or Lamb chops on any other day of the week, I always go home happy. The price is amazing for the amount and quality of food you get. Overall, the food, service and location are excellent. Outdoor seating is a big plus, too!
Great Day Houston Names a Great Place – Wow. That's all I have to say. I saw Mint Cafe on Great Day Houston this week, went to try it, and I was highly impressed. The food was delicious and the service was great. They told me at lunch, you order at the counter (that's what I did), but that during dinner it's table service. I'd like take my family there one night, and they have Kids' Menu! Definitely a Great Choice in Houston!
more than rude... – The food was tasty enough, but the service ruined the dining experience. Myself and four co-workers ordered from the menu and paid for our lunches at the counter. My boss ordered before me and was offered complementary pita chips and chopped olives, I ordered exactly the same thing after him and was offered nothing. In fact, I was shortchanged!
We enjoyed our meal and drinks for quite some time. When more people started coming in, the owner/manager started bussing our table around us. We had to grab our drinks so he would not take them. Apparently the quantity of customers is more important to them than the quality of the dining experience. When we did finally stand to leave he shoved around us to get the glasses pushing two of the women in my group out of his way.
I would not expect this type of mentality in such a lovely location. Perhaps they should relocate to Pasadena!
