“We went back to Fresh Mint again tonight and it was awesome. The golden soy chicken delight was fantastic (and so popular that we got the last order), and the signature lemongrass curry was great too. We had the banana fritter for desert and it was lovely. Much better than the first visit!! Good news too is that it was pretty busy! I think they’re looking to franchise too.” Thanks, Sonia!
