Old Reviews

the previous negative reviews are old, and don't reflect any experience i've had at mia's in the last two years. always delicious, reasonably priced food, good specials and amazingly friendly service - last time i went in on a cold, rainy day, they offered me a paper towel to dry my face, and a free sample of chai to warm up. where else do you get that??

Chicken Notsu

I work a block from Mia's so I want to like it. But the bread on the hot sandwiches have a really tough texture which makes me wonder if the entire sandy was microwaved. And the Chicken Katsu is the worst ever. Again, super chewy/hard texture and it's hard to find the chicken. Maybe an eXtreme kitchen makeover would help. Everything appears to be cooked in the same weird skillet thing.

Depends on item

The spicy chicken and bibimbap are very tasty. Just don't bother with entirely-bland chicken teriyaki. 4th star because some menu items are pretty darn good and it's priced correctly.

Mia's is Meh

Am I wrong for saying that it's Too Much rice? I'm not asking for more meat or salad, just, you know, who needs That much rice? That was kinda gross but I shoveled 3/4ths to the side and ate it anyway. I guess if the sauce(s!) weren't so bland it would be OK. I like bland. But with that much rice, there should be punch you in the mouth flavour.

Delicious, Friendly, Excellent

I'm shocked by the one (very!) negative review here. It's not the same restaurant that used to occupy the space, so comparing it isn't fair. Anyway, I LOVE this place. It's exactly the kind of friendly place Capitol Hill needs more of. Mia treats everyone well, is always coming up with new recipes, and everything I've had to eat was great. Her (homemade) salad dressings alone keep me coming back.

Negative Stars

Oh man, what happened? I guess it's my fault for expecting the same deliciousness from Mia's that I came to know and love in Moishe's. How wrong Wrong WRONG I was. I was under the impression that it was bought by a friend, rebranded and perhaps the decor spruced up a little with not much change to the menus or recipes. OH NO! The f**cked it all up. The tofu teriyaki was nearly inedible. I had to walk away from the plate after only a few bites. I was served a plate of warm garbage. I've never considered myself a finicky or picky eater, I will generally eat anything in front of me. This, This plate was worse than state fair food cart food. Worse than cold french fries. Worse than the noon o'clock wino feed Sundays at the church off Roosevelt. Totally fucking disgusting. Yeah, ok. Mia was nice I guess. Big whoop. I'd rather have yummy food. RIP MOISHES

friendly staff and great food!

The friendly owner Mia and her assistant Kay make sure you not only enjoy the delicious food but make you feel welcome every time you drop by. i've tried pretty much all of the menu and I haven't been disappointed once. I particularly like the chicken bibimbop a Korean specialty dish containing rice, chicken, salad, and spicy chili sauce and sweet terriyaki sauce. Also try the specialty sandwiches such as chicken salad: plump white chicken breast, red onion, celery, arugula, plump raisins, house mayo on a rustic bread-yummy! Portions are huge and prices very reasonable. Be sure to drop by and try out this gem, and don't forget to say hi to owner Mia-you'll make a new friend too!

Mia's grilled tofu sandwich is an absolute must! I often go there two or three times in a week, and seldom stray from this staple of my diet- although occasionally I treat myself to their spicy teriyaki chicken. The owner is an absolute delight; she's always friendly and eager to please. My recommendation: A grilled tofu sandwich on sourdough bread with ginger sauce. You won't regret it!
