What an absolute find! If you are a vegetarian (or just plain interested in good food) then I really would recommend this place. As a veggie of over 20 years I have had bad and good experiences of vegetarian restaurants and this is one of the best. Portions are generous and fresh. No room even for dessert!

I stopped in on a biz trip through Philly. The place was crowded (always a good sign). I was surprised at the different items on the menu from most other Thai restaurants I've visited.

The food was delicious, satisfying and affordable. The service was prompt and friendly.

Definitely worth going there multiple times.

To enter this intimate restaurant, find the unassuming awning on the west side of 16th Street, on the second block south of Walnut. The downstairs has only a few tables and no pretense. The menu is unconventional; inventive without being contrived. We soon lost ourselves in the meal, enjoying both the food and the conversation. I had a dish with a delicate cashew sauce. I spent my eating time avidly sopping it up with one or another of the other fresh and gently sweetened items on the plate.

This was my second visit to Milah's. They really know how to satisfy the Vegan tastes. I will certainly look forward to eating here the next time I visit Philadelphia.

Admittedly the ambience is somewhat cramped & drab, but the $12 veggie omelet w/ three choices of fillings (veggie bacon/sausage, tomatoes, onions, red peppers, etc.), served w/ crunchy sweet potato nuggets, toast & homemade red bliss, an almost sweet homemade jam, was hot & very good. Other creative tempting brunch entrees included pumpkin pancakes & scrambled tofu w/ veggies; the complimentary plate of fresh fruit, served while you wait for your order, is a refreshing touch.

Sorry to report, however, the ladies' bathroom could have been cleaner & the taped music was too loud & jarring.
