New Bangkok style cuisine with an Asian fused twist? Yes, please. Do not even think for a single second that Mint is messing around. Expect an explosion of accolades to own the wall while approaching the greet & seater we call hostess.
As a super large bottle of Germ-X calls the hostess stand home, prepare to be accepted. How exciting that this job description is not to judge & jury all for acceptable table worthiness (cough… Sissy’s… cough…). These girls are ready and willing to let all enter, for Mint accepts… anyone. Pause.
So fantastic is this place, Mint management has no alternative than to hunch over in a ball of laughter upon reading reviews of anything less than stellar . Beat it Yelp. Whoever says this place sucks is simply living an existence of impending dining doom. Plain & Simple.
ASIAN MINT FABULOUSNESS ENLIGHTENMENT PER ASIAN MINT:
* We use energy efficient light bulbs – highly recommended.
* We use automatic sensor faucets to help save water.
* All our containers are biodegradable.
* All our plastic cups that are used for drinks are made from corn.
* Our menus are made with recycled paper.
* We even recycle our vegetable frying oil.
Perfectly delicious in every way, dishes are apparently prepared to be solely surrounded by healthy people. Come to think of it, there hasn’t been a physically unfit person in the building during any of our visits. Maybe, just maybe, eating at Mint forces perfection. Triple Mint Sniffle.
Just when it seemed like an ordinary day, the person in which we were to dine had none other than an Asian Mint VIP customer card placed inside the very first wallet slot in which he brought. This guy doesn’t card flaunt, oh no. Instead, he ever so gently places it on top of the check presenter each time we dine. Without uttering a word, his superior Mint status is revealed.
