Had dinner at Mia one night while in Ithaca. Menu was a mixture of Thai, Indian and a bit of Asian fusion. Appetizer was shrimp/pork spring rolls. Nicely fried without being too oily. Mains were Tofu Khan in panang curry and Prig Pow Moo. Both were nicely spiced and not swimming in excessive sauce. Certainly enjoyed our meal and would certainly visit again.

We had a lovely dinner last week at Mia. The menu is tastefully put together, for those who love Thai cuisine as well as for those less adventuresome. The service and decor are quiet and elegant, words that describe the entire dining experience. We can't wait to go back and enjoy it again.

Mia restaurant is great! The diver scallop dumpling, tuna, and soba salad are absolutely delicious and very fresh tasting. The dahl is wonderful and it's nothing compared to some of the other entrees, like the stir fry and the lamb kofta, which others in my party had. On top of it, the chocolate marzipan cake could not fit my dessert preference better.

On top of the food, the place is swanky and fun and definitely feels like you're taking a mini vacation from Ithaca (while still getting to watch the interesting Ithacans walk by outside)!

Also the tasting menus sound fantastic, but I haven't had a chance to try one yet.

We went for last month's tasting dinner, which is held the last Wednesday of the month. It is a special dinner where the owner and head chef work together to create a magnificent 5-course meal. September's menu featured this amazing shrimp dish, a traditional curry with a kick that was spicy yet balanced so nicely with the suggested wine pairing (Gewurztraminer), and an AMAZING dessert with mixed berries, sorbet, and prosecco! I was happily full before the dessert came, but it was so delicious looking I had to eat it - I was not disappointed :) The other courses were soooo good as well, and their main (non-tasting dinner) menu here is awesome too! Mia can be a little tricky to find, as it is in the center of Ithaca's commons, but it is well worth it... parking in Ithaca is free at the meter after 6pm and on weekends, and there are also numerous parking garages very close to the commons.
