“Awesome food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2012 via mobile

This place has some of the best Asian food I have had anywhere in the world. It's so fresh and authentic. The duck in plum sauce is amazing. Really good value.

“Some authentic dishes and a good price point for expensive Healesville!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

We were delighted to see Mila's open up. Healesville has quite a few restaurants but many of them cost an arm and a leg to go to ( a couple even up their prices at the weekend!), and so a " cheap and cheerful" meal can be hard to find for a family, particularly if you want something spicy with an Asian influence.

We have eaten at Mils's on 3-4 occasions now, as a family and with friends. Some of the dishes are quite authentic and have a great Malaysian feel to them. Try the Char Kwai Teow - it is really good. Their chicken curries can also be good. They actually cook it with hunks of real chicken, not those thinly sliced, pre-poached strips that so many restaurants use. Accordingly there is a bit of flavour and texture to the dishes. The prawns they use are large and full of flavour, not those wizened little things others call prawns!

We found that we needed a few visits to work out the dishes that shine through. They don't all do that but the staff will spice it to your taste and you don't get the feel that the food is being "dumbed down" for Western palates. The staff are friendly and helpful, the decor comfortable and not pretentious, the servings generous. I think they're still working out all the detail, but if you want fresh, tasty food that isn't going to break the bank, try it.
