Meal at Mint Leaf (Berkeley): horrible
We just had an early dinner at Mint Leaf in Berkeley. Boy was the food horrible. Our appetizer (chicken samosa) was the only decent item of food we got. The main dishes were truly horrible. Seafood curry: blandest curry I've ever tasted, contained (I kid you not) one shrimp and two pieces of fish, and not even warm enough to boot. Lamb rogan josh: Lamb was really tough, sauce was not a traditional rogan josh. To top it all, service was quite slow. But the real culprit here is clearly in the kitchen.
Thanks for the update. There was a positive report a while back, but sounds like it might be slipping. It is odd in this economy that any restaurant wouldn't do everything possible to make sure the food is as good as it gets.
