Upon walking around the town, we stumbled upon this Restaurant. The waiters were very courteous and explained to us how to order, from the tapas menu or the entrees side. Only one person in our party got an entree, and the rest of us got tapas and were pleased with the food. Everything tasted amazing. The restaurant was very nice... More

We went for a late dinner. My wife ate from the tapas menu (roast duck puff pastry samosa) while I ate from the entree list (Koay Teow Kaeg – Thai-Indian style beef ramen noodle soup, bean sprouts, crispy shallots). Both were delicious. My ramen was spicy, but not over-powering. We would definitely go back again.

It was a celebratory dinner as a young niece had just graduated from Cornell. We were 9 of us & were given a round table on the first floor. We had 1 round of drinks before dinner & ordered their White wine special which turned out to be great. I had the quail as an appetizer which was a little... More

We had a wonderful light meal along with wine and cocktails. The food was eclectic and well prepared. The Pim's Cocktail outrageous!

Great place to go for dinner with a date or a large group. I loved the prawns in kerala sauce and the pork buns. My friend, who is a vegetarian, got the tofu buns and they were just as delicious! We also tried the calamari and several salads, which were all refreshing and unique. I would especially recommend the yum... More

First, the good: very friendly staff and the menu price was reasonable. Now, the bad: the food was just awful compared with similar styled west coast restaurants. We ordered 4 tapas and not one was even close to being average. The grilled beef and sticky rice, come on, who are you trying to fool? I have never tasted worst sticky... More

ErinFADS: The 17.9 out of a possible 20.0 points is an off-night. We have experienced better here over the years. FOOD: 4.4/5.0 -- Whatever you try, be sure to include the Korean barbecue pork buns; although nominally "buns", the blended texture of the subtly savory sauce and pillow-like pastry practically floats on your tongue. Similarly, the crispy duck and our... More

We came across this restaurant as apparently many places in Ithaca do not do reservations. We walked around the commons looking for places that could accommodate a group of 10 ladies at 9PM (tough task). Mia was a lovely ambiance and had great eclectic Asian foods. Everyone around me, my foods included, were fantastic. LOVED the Crispy Pork dish!!! (Well-... More

What a great dining experience. The service was everything I expect; Jared was really delightful in his attentiveness. My wife and I both enjoyed a variety of small plates. Their cocktails offered a fun change from my usual. And when dinner is so good we tend to splurge on dessert. The Vegan Chocolate Truffle cake is superb! As was the... More

On the commons walking mall. Had the chicken satay in peanut sauce. Delicious. Good wine list. Many near me having multiple dishes. I really just wanted a glass of wine and something to go with it. Completely satisfied. There on a Thursday night. Fills up fast. Wait staff very friendly.
