Asian Mint Expands with More Than Doubled Space, Added Services, and New Menu Items

The popular North Dallas restaurant adds a private dining room and doubles its bar and seating.

Source: Asian Mint | 5/12/16 | Dallas

Asian Mint, known for serving New Bangkok style cuisine combined with an Asian fused menu, has more than doubled its bar and dining space and added a private dining/meeting room complete with AV presentation capabilities and surround system. Opening in 2005 at Hwy 75 and Forest Lane, across from Medical City, Asian Mint has been recognized for fresh ingredients and service. ...


This is an exciting milestone for our Asian Mint Restaurant Group, and we look forward to welcoming our regulars, as well as new diners, says proprietor Nikky Phinyawatana. We are thrilled to have expanded space for our dine-in guests and catering requests, as well as now group dining. Planning our twice yearly cooking classes is going to be more rewarding too.



Fondly called Nikky by customers and friends, Phinyawatana's parents sent her from Thailand to America to study English. She landed in Dallas at The Hockaday School and never left. Yes, Nikky is one of the famous Hockadaisies, as graduates of the all-girl, private school are called. She and husband Tan, who likes to be behind the scenes in the all-important kitchen, met at a karaoke bar — thus the new capability in the added private dining room. Fluent in English and Thai, Nikky speaks some Spanish. She is a Cum Laude graduate of Babson College in Massachusetts, holding a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration; and holds a Food & Hospitality Pastry Chef Associate Degree from El Centro College in Dallas. A member of the 'invitation only' Les Dames de E'scoffier, Nikky also is a board member of the Greater Dallas Restaurant Assn. and a member of the eWomen's Network.


Expect to find the favorite Pad Thai offerings, Sea Bass, Thai Salads and lighter fare, along with signature spicy tuna crisps, drinks, organic wines, martinis, and tempting desserts. Look for such new menu items as Asian noodle salad, red snapper, peanut basil chicken. Look for gluten free options in casual digs and Saturday/Sunday brunch menus to delight.


The Asian Mint is located at 11617 N.Central Expressway at Forest Lane in the Park Central Plaza across from Medical City. Hours of operation are Mon.-Sat. 11:00 am-10:00 pm and Sun. 11:00 am-9:00 pm. For reservations check TripAdvisor, Open Table or call 214-363-6655.


Sister restaurant, The Mint, opened in 2009 in Highland Park is in the Shops of Highland Park at 4246 Oak Lawn Ave. Hours of operation are Mon.-Thurs. 11:00 am-3:00 pm and 5:00 pm-9:30 pm; Fri.-Sat. 11:00 am-10:00 pm; closed Sunday. Reservations available through TripAdvisor and Open Table or call 214-219-6468.
