I reviewed Mia for the first time last August. We just returned and it was as great as it was last time. I can't understand the (admittedly few) negative reviews that have been written. Service, atmosphere, decor, food, prices.....all terrific. The crispy duck with tamarind sauce is to die for. Had dinner there with two others and they said their... More

This is our favorite restaurant in Ithaca. We've been here so many times we can't count and have never had a bad meal. Quite the contrary. The food at this restaurant is consistently good, so good, in fact, that this is our go-to place to take out-of-town guests. We find that this is good for vegetarians and omnivores. There are...

Excellent fusion restaurants. We all shared plates and all of them were very good, which was unusual. The seafood dishes were my favorite. Will be back.

Every bite here was exquisite. The pork buns are to die for. Service was friendly and prompt and made excellent ecommenadtions. The restaurant was reasonably busy but not too noisy. All in all highly recommended.

Amazing food. “Both the pork buns and the Thai wings were clever - deconstructed in a way that made the protiens shine more and have great texture.”

I ate here as part of a group of 20 with preselected appetizers (ribs, samosas, portabello mushrooms) and main dishes (shrimp curry, sweet & sour tofu and vegetables, pork vindaloo). Found the food tasty but not authentic to any particular region. Like the Ubu Ale!

Yes you wouldn't know it by the name but this place mostly Thai--also some Indian influence. We were taken here by some local profs and had a great dinner--they catered a sort of banquet with many dishes so we didn't even order but everything was good--and I'm fairly picky about my Thai food.

Went there with a few friends last week. The food was, to mildly put, to die for. Ithaca dining scene is average at best in general, and Mia stood out as an excellent restaurant that could hold its own anywhere. The menu is a collection of small and big plates, with a distinctly Thai and Indian bent, with a few... More

My husband tried an entree and I had several small plates. We shared everything and all of it was perfect. The food was full of flavor and the service was good too. Definitely will recommend.
