Mynt Fusion Bistro is a new restaurant that opened a few weeks ago here in Lowell. So, the other night, Kathy and I decided to check it out.
We went there on a Thursday in order to avoid the weekend crowd. And, as expected, there was no wait. Great!
The inside has been redone. There is now carpeting on the floor which helps reduce the noise factor. And while the faux tin ceiling is still there, the decor is Asian.
The tables had table clothes and the napkins were linen. This gave us the impression that this was not another Chinese buffet.
The menu selection was quite nice and covered Japanese, Chinese, Korean and Thai. And the selections were moderately priced.
In an effort to benchmark an Asian restaurant, I tend to order a known fair. In the case of Mynt Fusion Bistro, I order Hot and Sour soup and General Zao chicken.
The Hot and Sour Soup was excellent! Good flavor, good zing. It was very much like what I make at home.
The General Zao chicken was very good! It had a nice flavor and was not greasy, but the zing wasn’t there so I was a little disappointed. However, in all fairness, I have never had a General Zao chicken that was really spicy.
The service was excellent and the atmosphere was very pleasant.
They provided a common brand of chop sticks, which I don’t particularly care for. But many places use them, including my favorite Thai restaurant, so, I was not too inconvenienced. Beside, I doubt that many patrons request them.
All and all, it was an excellent dining experience and I would recommend it to anyone. On a scale of 1 to 5, I would give it a 4.5.
