Excellent new cafe - highly recommended – Excellent food, excellent service, great decor. This is a lovely gem in the Galleria area. We were impressed with the fresh, healthy food and the owner's friendliness.
My Recommendations: Falafel, Chicken Kabob, Grape Leaves, Garlic Sauce, Lebanese wine, The Mint Special Dessert
Very Authentic Lebanese Food – Thumbs up! Way up! Although the decor shouts contemporary and cold, the food is by far GREAT. Very tasty and very authentically Lebanese. I had found my favorite Lebanese restaurant in town, but now there definitely is competition in town. This place is very friendly, attentive service, fabulous food and alltogether a delectable experience. The tabouli was very fresh and seasoned to perfection, the babaghanoug was no less than perfect; no taste of burned eggplant and just the right amount of garlic and lemon. I had the beef shawarma and it was presented in a very attractive manner and it tasted just like it is suppose to taste like... I was offered desert and it was a winning compliment to the already delicious fare. A definite A+. Highly recommendable, I will return and bring people.
Little start up restaurant - needs a bit of work! – We went to this establishment tonight and you could tell that they were trying really hard! The waitstaff left us sitting alone for long periods of time. We had to get up and ask them to come back three times - 1) when we wanted to order, 2) when we had been waiting for our food for an hour and 3) when we wanted to pay and leave. Seemed to be more inexperience than anything. The food was decent, but nothing spectacular. I think this place has a lot of potential - and I like the friendly waitstaff. I would go back again, but probably for lunch!

Excellent food, friendly service – I stopped in here on a rainy cold night after working late. I thought I'd just try a regular ole gyro but the staff suggested I try their special which was a lean ground meatballs in a delicious gravy sauce. Super delicious flavors in the meat with mediterranean spices. It was served with steamed rice, pita bread and a to-die-for salad that I couldn't get enough of. When they say "mint" they're not kidding. The salad had a delicious dressing with feta crumbles and chopped mint. The lemonade is mint too, only fresh mint puree'd to the point of invisible...try this drink!
Excellent! – Mint Cafe is great! I have been eating here since they opened and I have yet to be disappointed. The food is always fresh and flavorful and the service is prompt and friendly. You can order from an extensive menu at the counter or you can sit and be served on. The weekend specials are great as well, although they can be on the pricier side. Try their fresh juices for a nice change of pace.
