|Beloved for the fresh and delicious range of classic Thai and Vietnamese specialities of its first location in Soho East, Mint & Basil now celebrates its second opening, in Tung Chung, with a spacious outdoor area surrounded by herbs and waving palm trees.|
Operated in Hong Kong by the multi-brand Uppal Hospitality Group, Mint & Basil joins the group’s other culinary institutions, including modern Indian restaurant Jashan (the first Indian restaurant in Hong Kong to be mentioned in the Michelin guide), JoJo and more.
An urban oasis for outdoor lovers, secluded within a vertical herb garden punctuated with sprouting basil and mint plants, Mint & Basil’s second location welcomes families, friends and even four-legged companions to unwind and relax in its spacious and sophisticated secret garden. The new restaurant’s main dining room is bathed in golden light from banks of suspended pendant lamps, which illuminate wooden floors and walls graced with soothing pastel patterns, an aesthetic complemented by an authentic Southeast Asian street food market mural and a standalone wooden bar that serves beers, cocktails, wines and spirits.
Mint & Basil’s menu is curated by Thai Executive Chef Saksit, and comprises MSG-free Thai and Vietnamese classics boasting fresh flavours and quality ingredients, including Angus beef and house-made sauces and condiments, making it perfect for both meat lovers and vegetarian guests. All-time favourites include the Tom Yum Soup; Thai-style Shrimp Sashimi; Thai-style Pan-seared Scallop with Lychee Salad; Char-grilled Whole Squid; Roasted Chicken with Black Pepper; Pho Bo; and Pad Thai. Other highlighted dishes include Char-grilled Minced Beef in Betel Leaf (remember to add more sauce to enjoy with each bite); Fish Maw Soup with Crab Meat; Lamb Shank Curry; Braised Beef brisket with Flat Rice Noodles; and Mango Sticky Rice with three different flavoured sticky rice balls.
These fresh and vibrant comfort dishes are designed to pair perfectly with the bar’s selection of beers and cocktails, and the labels of Mint & Basil’s curated wine list.
