    This was our last meal at MiLah, before they closed the doors, closing down the restaurant... We felt sad to be eating our favorite things for the last time,and the food was still amazing, even on the last day, with their supplies dwindling quickly. We look forward to your re- opening in Chestnut Hill, we are hoping!! Thank you for all of the extras, and for being so sweet to us always! We miss you already!!

    Wonderful flavors and attentive service but at the same time friendly. We didn't feel rushed and the food came at a good pace. It can fill up pretty fast so make a reservation. Even on a rainy night they almost had a full house while we were there.

    We always enjoyed the food so much that we come whenever we can! But we really enjoyed the soft music, very combing after a hard week, and enjoy most the late Asian music and light classical, and lately they changed it to pop music which we don’t feel is good for calming or for digestion. Is interesting that it attracted clientele, recently, that were drinking and not quiet, on Friday, November 9. I think please go back to the serene music, that attracts angels... thank you for always being fresh and delicious! We love your restaurant!

    It was our first visit and we drove 50 miles (1 hour) to get there - wish we had places like this closer to Princeton, NJ. Food presentation was excellent - we followed our waiter’s recommendations and they were all good except the chocolate cake - it turned out to be vegan and tasted like baking flour. Food quantity is less than most Asian restaurants and we didn’t mind as we end up with leftovers at the other restaurants and there were none here. I would have liked a Banh mi sandwich but they only serve that for lunch. I don’t plan to visit this restaurant again as it’s too far away and while the food is good, it’s not worth the long drive for us.

The mushroom soup, even the cabbage salad, and the Indonesian rolls, and the brussels sprouts, and even the cauliflower steak, is just absolutely fantastic! So happy to have vegan food nearby!

    Very elegant, very pretty cauliflower plate with beautiful red beets aligned on top, adorning like a flower. Wonderful butternut squash soup, and always fantastic Indonesian rolls. My friend enjoy Tom Yum soup as well as spicy dumplings. Thank you Mi Lah. Extremely fast service, and we were able to see our movie on time, which was a miracle!

    Love the food because it is creative and vegan. I miss the big guy, who is the usual server, who gives us great advice, and is super friendly. We miss his smile, and the happy feeling that we get walking through the door, and trying out all of his new favorites. He always asks how is everything, and we love telling him how much we enjoy it, to relay the message to the chef.

    We love the food here, because it is vegan or at least vegetarian. Also, it's gourmet style, with a lot of variety, and very creative. This last time we had our favorite Indonesian rolls, we also had spring rolls that were pretty great. I loved my entrée, of the cauliflower steak. It was extra delicious. My friend ordered the pho, but he was disappointed, because the fake meat was some sort of gross baloney. Pho, comes with things like shrimp, or beef, or beef tendon, or carved beef, but never sliced baloney, like in a sandwich! Almost all of the entrées are very delicious. The broth was OK, on his Pho. I would replace the sliced baloney, and the spongy cheese looking rubbery large tofu, with perhaps a nice fake shrimp. Overall, this place is very creative, and a real gem, as a vegan! Thank you! We don't know what we would do without you! We eat here at least once a week! We are constantly trying something new, and that part is very exciting!
