Mintt Indian Restaurant (Dormont)

Last month, I attended a FoodBurgh Meetup at Mintt, an Indian restaurant in the South Hills that had come highly recommended to Mike (FoodBurgh blogger and Meetup organizer) by his Indian coworker, and he in turn highly recommended it to his Twitter followers.  Now that I've been, I count myself as another patron to highly recommend Mintt.

The restaurant did a fine job of accommodating and serving our large group of around 30, even offering us each a glass of complimentary mango lassi (yum!).  The service remained friendly and competent throughout the busy evening.  The menu looked great and it wasn't an easy decision, but I went with the Goan Shrimp Curry, with a fantastic coconut milk-based sauce and plenty spicy for "medium."  In fact, I was surprised by how spicy it was, but at the same time, I appreciated that they didn't dial down the heat for the American tastebud.  We washed down our meal with some BYOB beer.  There was no corkage fee as far as I remember.

The folks sitting near me seemed quite happy with their dishes as well.  All in all, it was an enjoyable meal and a fun evening.
