DEAR MINT COMMUNITY,
Wow. Ten Years. It’s been an exhilarating ride. Our journey began in 2008 at 730 East Flamingo Road, with the mission to give you a real taste of the flavors of Indian cuisine. Our food mantra was (and still is) simple, colorful and flavorful food that appeals to all five senses, no matter what dietary philosophy you follow.
In 2008, Indian food wasn’t as popular in the United States as it is today, especially in Las Vegas. So we wanted to turn this trend on its head. We wanted to help make Indian food a growing ethnic cuisine with the ultimate goal of giving it a more mainstream status.
Today, Indian food has grown in popularity and has become the ‘next ethnic food trend.’ In 2017, the Las Vegas Review-Journal interviewed me for an article on the growing demand for Indian food in Las Vegas.
Things are starting to happen … and we are at the helm of this growth.
My vision is to see Indian cuisine go mainstream. And as we sit you down and serve another delicious meal, we know we’ve got work to do.
Ten years is a long time. Few things in our lives (or in the world) last that long—and the restaurant business is particularly challenging. Despite it all, we have endured. I’m honored and humbled that you’ve stuck with us all that time, and I promise that in the decade ahead, Mint Indian Bistro will deliver more than it does today. Innovation is in our DNA, and we will continuously strive to give you more.
As we celebrate our 10th Anniversary, I know one thing: It’s all about the people. So thank YOU …
TO OUR DINERS
We are grateful for every diner that has stepped foot in our restaurants. Over the past decade, you have shown your love in many ways. I get to see many of you in person—at the restaurant, at conventions and events around the city. But I get to see you right here on the web, too—on social media, in the comments, through my email.
You have given us feedback, supported us in our innovations, inspired us and motivated us to stay true to our mission. Many of you have become friends and advisors, allowing us to grow, innovate and do more. You’re the best!
TO OUR TEAM
To be in business for a decade does not happen without a strong team. We are grateful to work with the most talented, innovative, enterprising, hardworking, and fun team. For the past ten years, our team has been living and breathing our core values of excellence, innovation, and exceptional service. Our chefs make sure they not only inject flavor into the food but also use the highest quality and freshest of ingredients for every single dish. Team Mint makes the dream work!
TO THE MEDIA
We have won awards and mentions throughout the Las Vegas community. And we are thankful to the local media for spreading the word about all the exciting things the team whips up. We would not have seen the widespread success we have achieved without the media’s support.
TO OUR PARTNERS
We would also like to thank all the partners we collaborate with to make Mint Indian Bistro the best Indian restaurant in Las Vegas!
THANK YOU FOR 10 REMARKABLE YEARS!
I hope you’ll continue to hold us to high standards and let us know when we’ve met your expectations and when we’ve let you down.
Here’s to another 10 … and many more.
With deep appreciation,
Kris & Bindi Parikh
