If you only remember one thing from this post, remember this: When the food comes to your table - do not wait to eat it. They prepare their food fresh so the dishes will arrive at different times. Enjoy the food as it arrives, while it is still hot.
The portions are large because they are not designed to be individual meals. Another key aspect to enjoying Asian cuisine is sharing. This is evident by the communal tables and bar seating within Mimimi. Eating is meant to be a social experience which is why they encourage you to come with a group of friends or sit with strangers and make new friends. Crazy concept, eh?! Perhaps the best seats are those at the bar so you can watch the cooking in action with their open kitchen. When you arrive, they will seat you but if it’s not busy - you can sit wherever you’d like. If it’s not apparent yet, they are sincerely great people serving up great food.
