I have been to this restaurant regularly over the last year and the dishes tend to be inconsistent - it's one of my annoyances with Indian cuisine and ordinarily it's largely due to the chef cooking at the time. Similarly, the service can be hit and miss too - again, just depends on who greets you at the time. Overall,... More

We have visited a number of times and as always the food and service are excellent. We always look forward to visiting and if you order too much remember to ask for a take away bag. Great service and great staff

This is by far the best Indian restaurant in Reading. The meat is good quality and succulent. The dishes are flavoursome. We absolutely love it here. Mr Miah is very friendly and if you arrive too early to collect your take away they are always lovely. Take away from here is collection only. It's sister restaurant Saffron (not far away)... More

We are so pleased that you like our food and service. We have in fact closed the Saffron Restaurant but the good news is that we have transferred the delivery service to Garden of Gulab. However we always like to greet our customers personally whether they are eating in or having a take away so we hope to see you... More

Offers a range of tasty indian food. They have a broad menu which includes (British) curry classics as well as some more adventurous choices. The service is top notch. In all it is an excellent restaurant. I will always recommend Miah's to friends and family.
