We live localy and use this restaurant every so often for takeaway. It used to be packed most nights but I have seen a slow decline over the years and now every time I go in it is usually empty. There is a upstairs eating area that you used to be seated in when the downstairs was full mostly on... read more

Two friends and I decided to give Miah's a second chance after having a poor meal. But it was a complete let down. The service was very slow to the point we were leaving, but the waiter persuaded us to stay. The duck starter dish we shared was so over cooked it was like tough liver. Awful. Our mains eventually...

Always great food from polite & conscientious staff. Great for eating in or takeaway. Other places could learn a lot from the staff here.

I am indian and ate in this resteraunt tonight with my English husband. We love curry. We have never eaten here before. The food is terrible. It is a bland gloopy unseasoned sweet mess, whatever dish you have. We had Punjabi lamb, I am Punjabi. It was nothing like anything I have eaten before. It was a sweet soup with... More

The place was empty (21.15) when we arrived, but two more tables were taken later. The staff went from sullen to rude. The food was ok, but all looked the same, with a gloopy thick tomato sauce. Our neighbours ordered something completely different, but it had the same sauce. We wanted a dessert, but were presented with the bill unasked.... More

Unfortunately the only down side to the meal was the very grump waiter...who never smiled said please or Thank you. He... More

We are BIG Indian food fans and have eaten in all types, from cheap and cheerful to elegant and expensive. Miah's could fit into the first category, the staff are friendly and helpful. However I was disappointed in the cleanliness of pretty much everything in this restaurant. It took the edge off the food, which was actually not bad. Tasty... More

If you are here in Castle Cary you can get more than a Balti at Miahs. Red wine is very good as is the beer I always take visitors here staff make everyone welcome

Went to the buffet on a Sunday evening, got there about 6.45pm, there was no meat in the curries just sauce. The toilet facilities are disgusting. All 5 of us were ill next day. Will never go there again.

We decided to try a different restaurant from our favourite, and were very disappointed. Food was poor. If I'd gone around to a friends for dinner, and had this, I would not have been disappointed, but sorry to say not what I would have expected from a proper restaurant. Food tasted and looked like blended tomatoes with some chillies thrown... More
