“Ask and try the specials”

In town for a conference and 14 of us were provided the 2nd floor dining room. We shared appetizers and I ordered the two specials. Quick service, excellent food at a very fair price.

“Lovely, wide variety of Asian cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

We had a reservation for Sunday night of Labor Day weekend, and we had a terrific meal with excellent service. The pork bun was not what we expected and unlike any we had had before. It was much more creative! The main dishes were all so well enjoyed that that we finished them all!
The duck was excellent, the chicken masala was fantastic, and the lobster shrimp combination prepared in the Northern Indian style was superb. We followed the meal with a blueberry tart that was quite good, and a frozen hazelnut zabaglione that was delicious. If you like Asian and/or Asian/fusion cuisine, you will be very happy with Mia!

“Great variety here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

There's something on the menu for everyone here. Nice mix of Indian, Thai, and Asian cuisine, which I really liked because there was a lot to choose from. Only complaint is that I wish the portions were larger because they were so good. We ordered the Scallop Dumpling as a starter (which was tasty, only one comes with the appetizer) and the Shrimp Satay (great sauce). I had the Seabass entree (very tasty fish and fresh). Friends ordered the Pork curry dish, which was delicious and the Chicken Masala dish. All food was tasty and came out quick.

“Wonderful Food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

It seems to me that a visit to Ithaca should include a visit to Mia ( if you like Asian/ Indian food ). I was part of three couples that had dinner at Mia on July 28. The food was great and the service impeccable . Our waiter, John, was very attentive without being overbearing . The manager even helped pick an appropriate wine to compliment all of our dinners!! The wine list was very nice and reasonably priced. I loved the Ahi tuna appetizer and prawns in a chili sauce with Thai Basil. Deserts were delectable. Warm and relatively quiet atmosphere helped us truly enjoy our evening.
