Indian Restaurants in South Bay: The Mynt
The Mynt was recommended to me a long time ago and finally we decided to go there for Valentine’s Day. (Yes, I’m late on the post too!) As the name suggests, it is an Indian restaurant with a twist. While the basic dishes are Indian, they infuse inspiration from all over the world. “Fusion Indian food” might be a good term to sum it up.
On the day we went, we had no option but to go for their special meal. So, our experience is limited in that sense.
The soups started it off satisfactorily, while the salads and appetizers were interesting. Tandoori Game Hen with Naan / Roti was a weird combination. The vegetarian dish went well with the bread though. The pulao was light, with a tasty raita on the side. But by the time we reached the Goat Biryani, we were too full. The delicious desserts rounded it off very nicely. Champagne / soda was part of the deal.
We enjoyed the food thoroughly. Sadly though, there seemed to be a case of food-poisoning for my wife. She threw up the entire dinner that night, back at home.
The ambience was adequate. It was probably a little busy that day. While the regular prices aren’t steep, the Valentine’s Day special was priced at $55 for non-vegetarian and $45 for vegetarian.
Feels like something you want to check out? Head to one end of San Jose, near Campbell and Cupertino — to be more specific: 5210 Prospect Road, San Jose, CA 95129.
Take a look at their basic Web-site. Their Sunday Brunch seems to be a very good deal. We might get there again soon.
