No, it was definitely mint, not lime. I don't think it had fish sauce in it, but then again, I'm not that familiar with fish sauce so I might not even realize what it is. And I wouldn't say that the dressing was particularly sweet. The quickest description I can give is that it was minty and light and had the consistency of a vinagrette.
Boy, all you folks have asked great questions and really have me thinking now. I'll just have to force myself to go back there and try it again and do some Sherlock Holming to solve this mystery.
