    Service was absolutely terrible. Took over 20 minutes for our server to stop by. Didn’t greet us or ask how we were or if we needed anything. Had to flag down another server for menus. Service seemed annoyed we were there and had no knowledge of the menu beyond the description listed on the menu. “How’s the flavor of the Korean BBQ rips?” Answer from server: it’s a Korean bbq flavor. Ok then. The food was decent. Bao buns were fire, but food quality overshadowed by the poor service. Took an hour and half to get entrees and not even that crowded. For $50 entree and $20 cocktails you should expect better service than what we got. I’d give this a big avoid given much better options in the city. This place stays open bc ownership is famous and wants it as a place to be seen.

    Excellent food, service and atmosphere. It was really apparent there is a team mindset to delivering a wonderful dining experience. From the host/hostess, to the server, bartender, kitchen team, to the team members that bring out the food as soon as it’s plated - everyone was working in concert. Congratulations to Ayesha and her management team for delivering a wonderful experience to the everyday diner. You’ve figured out the winning combination in a time where most establishments are contending with staffing and supply shortages in a way that’s barely noticeable to your patrons. I highly recommend, have recommended to friends and will return when back in San Francisco.

    I Had the Salmon with a side of pork belly rice my wife had the burger with the fries. Plus we had the lobster mac and cheese and cornbread. It was all very good with excellent service. We went for our 32nd wedding anniversary. The server gave my wife a nice card and made us a special dessert. Very enjoyable time at International Smoke.

    Seated in very dimly lit booth. I had the curry soup; which was quite watered down/thin/diluted; one pea and tiny tofu cube were the only solid pieces in my half cup. I requested no onions and garlic, minimal oil, for my branzino and greens entrée. It was not followed through. I had to flag my server and show him. He had it redone accordingly. :-/

    Restaurant has scaffolds blocking the windows, so although our booth was nice, the view was not. Overall too noisy to have a pleasant conversation. Food was good, but not exceptional. Sea bass and garlic noodles were my favorites. Desserts were disappointing, as was the signature corn bread.

    There to celebrate 30 year anniversary with my Sorority Sisters. Service was slow to the point that one of us had to meet with the manager. I know it’s California, but the drinks were overpriced. Also the food was not well seasoned and several of us returned our food for a refund or another dinner option. Especially the branzino. Due to construction, signage needs to be put up. Several of us got lost for an hour trying to find the restaurant. The ambiance was nice however.

    Made reservations for my girlfriend and I to celebrate her recent promotion. The restaurant had a great ambiance with the option of table or bar service. Loved all of the decor and lighting and always a bonus when restaurants provide private gender neutral restrooms. The food was amazing! Large portions to share and we ordered a lot (had plenty of leftovers afterwards). Out of everything we ordered (cauliflower, lobster Mac and cheese, garlic noodles, short ribs with rice, and bao buns) we absolutely fell in love with the dessert! We tried the dark chocolate cake and strawberry cheesecake and I am mean it when I say that the cheesecake was the most delicious and creamiest we had ever had! So good, would return just to order dessert! Overall, worth the money, service was amazing, and will recommend to others.

    The drinks and service and ambiance was good but such a place was not deserving of that menu. The Muncie had only a few items to choose from on talking maybe 5-6 selections. 2’9f it was ribs!!! If I wanted ribs I would go to a rib house. And there were only three choices for deserts. Now I have a sweet tooth and when I have to pass on desert it means none of it was good. Extended the menu and put some good food selections and deserts in there. This is not what other Mina restaurants have.

    This was our 2nd visit. We enjoyed our meal the first time but this time…not even close. We were a party of 7 celebrating a birthday. We wanted to try Ayesha’s cornbread since that is her signature dish. It was dry and flavorless. Ribs were not enjoyed, fish over cooked, drinks small and bland. The waiter did take my dish off the bill which was certainly appreciated, as it was dry and not edible. For the amount of money you will spend here, they can do much better. Will not return again.

    Had the Mexican ribs as the main. We're mot marinated and not tasty. Hence I only ate two to check they were all bad. Server took away the rest of the rack and b didn't even ask why I hadn't eaten them ( isn't that Server 101?)

    It was okay. They didn’t want to move us when we asked so that kinda ruined the experience for me. The food was okay but I’ve tried better for that price. The garlic fried rice was sad, tiny and plain. The ribs were hard to chew. Overall it was good but I don’t think I’ll come back.

    They are doing construction out front so it was hard to find but after we walked Adeline the block we found a walkway entrance directing us to the restaurant. However, the service was great. The ambiance was very nice. The food was good, but I was hoping for more of a wow factor. I would recommend the cornbread that was super good. The Mac and cheese was very cheesy but not flavorful.

    The food and service were fantastic. We ordered Aesha's Thai curry butter bread, which is always amazing, the beef rolls (they were out of the very popular bao buns), Mary's chicken and filet mignon, with the key lime crepe cake to finish. Everything was excellent, except the chicken could have been warmer. Very happy with the wine selection and we got complimentary sparkling wine for our anniversary! The bar was understaffed by everyone else worked really hard to make up for the delays. Really great experience. The only downside was the noise. The tables are close together and if you end up sitting next to someone who likes the sound of their voice, your experience might be less than stellar. Ask for a booth!
