Terrible service and a very unhelpful rude manager. Expected a better experience. Our waitress was slow and absent minded (food came with no cutlery). The manager wasn't bothered to hear our complaints because she was too busy dealing with invoices. You'd expect managers to ve...available during lunch time rush. Very disappointed.More

Perfect spot for a quick bite or a sit down lunch. Great customer service and fresh menu selection. They have a very good desert selection for those with a sweet tooth.

Friendly waiting staff as we arrived, all with big smiles and wishing us a Happy Independence Day as it was Zambia 58th Independence Day anniversary. They politely asked where we preferred to sit inside or outside, to which we chose inside as it was cooler...because of the air conditioner were on. I asked for fresh mango juice but unfortunately they were out of stock but went on to suggest pineapple, Orange and two others I forget. I opted for a Fanta, my sister Tonic water & Soda water and my niece frozen Smoothie all served at the same time. Our waiter had more than one table he was waiting on, and when we were ready to order his colleague stepped up and asked if it was ok if he could take our order to which we agreed, my niece and I placed our orders but my sister was undecided, so she took in our order and came back to take my sister's order. After a few minutes all plates came to the table at the same time. I had Minute Steak with Caramelized onions and steamed vegetables, my sister had Chicken Schnitzel and my niece had Herb cous cous Chicken the food was fresh and absolutely delicious!!! After our meal our waiter informed us that as it was independence day all customers get to have a Muffin on the house, I thought that was a kind gesture. Another thing that stood out about the restaurant was all waiting staff wore t/shirts commemorating Independence Day they looked very smart. To anyone traveling to Zambia or in Zambia and have never been to the Mint lounge at Acacia Park next to Arcades, please do pay them a visit, I highly recommend them. Lisa D’SouzaMore

You could very easily miss this place - it’s tucked round the corner after a few other Restaurants. Extensive menu with friendly service. Definitely worth a second visit.

Been to mint multiple times and thoroughly enjoyed every visit. Service can be a bit slow at times but they do get fairly busy so it’s understandable. Staff are friendly and food is good. Their cakes are soooo good!! I absolutely love their red velvet...cake! 🤤More

This is a sweet little place, easy to find and a delight to be in. Their sandwiches especially are excellent - mine was beef, with a generous filling, washed down by a fine cup of coffee. Go and enjoy!

Has both indoor and outdoor sections. Decent menu at reasonable prices. Focuses mainly on burgers, wraps and sandwiches. Decent service. Food was tasty. I asked for a slight variation on the standrd dish (swapping halloumi cheese for chicken on one salad dish) and this was...no problem.More

Very pleasant welcome.Quick Service. Very busy at lunch time. Food is fresh and well presented.Within a complex so parking difficult. We all had different dishes, but all came together. In a noisy area, but the restaurant was in a nice garden.
