Welcomed by lovely staff, nice table, I’ve never ate in Miahs before but the food was fantastic, my favourite pudding of pistachio ice cream and too top it of a lovely green tea. Superb evening.

After many reading Currys I've settled on Miahs as the favourite! Always great service, it's nice and quiet in there and the pickle tray is the best!!

Having stopped here for a brief bite to eat, I was very pleasantly surprised. As I was in a hurry, I ordered one of the appetisers and a dish from the Street Foods part of the menu and both were excellent. Both dishes were very...More

We developed our menu to cater for customers such as this who did not want a full-blown curry but fancied something a little lighter. It is nice to know that our innovation is appreciated and they enjoyed their experience. That said we do have an...More
