    1. Places recommended on Chowhound recently include:

      Run of the Mill (Saco), Mia's (Saco), and Jewel of India(Biddeford).

      If willing/able to travel a little further, search Kennebunk/Ogunquit and many options in Portland.

        You cannot go wrong with Mia's. Easily the best restaurant in Saco, and gives most places in Portland a run for their money. Very interesting wine list, as well. Please go, and tell others!

      2. I put my vote in the Jewel of India.

        As an aside, the New Orleans insired bistro (next to the burrito place in Biddeford) has closed and the sushi place across the street serves huge pieces of fish, if not too large, it's still a great deal.

        1. Agree with other poster, Jewel of India and Mia's are both very good. Jewel is small restaurant with surprising good indian food. Mia's is wonderful for more American/Continental food. I had a fish dish that was perfectly cooked, dessert was good too. Atmosphere at Mia's is a little more upscale than Jewel (altho still very casual), as is the neighborhood (downtown Saco). But can't go wrong with either restaurant. Check out Mia's website for menu and prices.

          1. Que Huong, across from the mill on your way from saco into biddeford, is a great little vietnamese place with great food and a incredibly friendly woman who runs the place.

            I've only been to jewel of india once, and my experience wasn't special...but people often reccomend it on this board, so I plan on giving it another chance.

            Lastly, Pizzy By Alex in biddeford is one of my favorite pizza places in the country (however many might disagree with that)

              With regards to Pizza by Alex, I would fall into the latter camp; we didn't find it very impressive.
