Via Cadore 26 Romana district
tel. [+39] 02 5450046 Porta Romana

Viale Monte Nero 19 Romana district

tel. [+39] 02 55185740 Porta Romana
$$ .:. Cueva Maya
Very good Tex-Mex food and it shows: it's always packed. Booking essential. Sunday brunch. .:. Within walking distance of the restaurant there used to be the Otra Vez, under the same management and providing the same food. But it has closed.
Via Giovanni Lulli 28b Loreto district
evenings only, closed Monday
tel. [+39] 02 26143634 Loreto
$$ .:. Esperides
The traditional Greek menu is not too 'heavy': after appetizers with yoghurt, feta cheese, olives and vegetables the choice is between rich salads, meat and fish dishes and an assortment of cheeses. There is a good variety of typical desserts, liquors and wines as well. .:. The quality of the menu makes up for the atmosphere, which lacks traditional "Mediterranean" warmth and intimacy.
Via Palazzo Reale 5 Duomo district
tel. [+39] 02 8053891 Duomo
$ .:. Giardino di Giada
A good, reliable Chinese restaurant right behind the Duomo. In Milan since 1980, it belongs to a renowned Chinese family, and has become a sort of landmark for the Milanese.
Via Lecco 5 Porta Venezia district
tel. [+39] 02 36513597 Porta Venezia
$$ .:. Hana
Judging from the Korean clientele, the bulgogi here must be the real thing. Care for the ingredients - pork from qualified suppliers, absolutely no monosodium glutamate - is a point of pride of the house.
Via Giovanni Schiaparelli 5 Stazione Centrale district
tel. [+39] 02 6701992 Sondrio
$$$ .:. Hong Kong
Very elegant setting, exquisite Cantonese and Szechwanese cuisine. Reputedly one of the best in town.
Via Paolo Sarpi 11 Paolo Sarpi district
tel. [+39] 02 3490278 Moscova
$$ .:. Jubin Chinese food, some Thai specialities and sushi in the heart of the Milanese Chinatown. You won't get out smelling of fried chicken. Take away, too.
Via Garofalo 22/a Città Studi district
tel. [+39] 02 2664147 Piola
$ .:. Mandarin 2
Unquestionably, the most acclaimed affordable Chinese restaurant in town. (If you're coming by car - and the area is crowded - there's a good old garage next door until 1:30 at night.)
Viale Monte Nero 62 Porta Vittoria district
tel. [+39] 02 5510442 Porta Romana
$$ .:. Mongolian Barbecue
A generous buffet of Chinese and Japanese food (such as noodles, rice and sushi), along with meat and fish cooked there and then on a griddle. You can eat as much as you want for a set price but anything left over will cost you an additional 5/10 Euros. The two little rooms are often crowded...booking in advance is a good idea.
Via Sardegna 45 Corso Vercelli district
closed Friday and Saturday lunch, and on Passover
tel. [+39] 02 4694643 Wagner
$$ .:. Re Salomone
Good kosher restaurant, certified by the Rabbinate of Milan, in the old Fiera area: falafel, humus and pita but also moussaka and chips. Food from the culinary traditions of Israel, Egypt, Lebanon, Syria and Persia. .:. Take away, too.
Via Pontida 2 Brera district
tel. [+39] 02 6592139 Moscova

tel. [+39] 02 89404746 no metro
$$$ .:. Shiva
Since 1997, this Indian restaurant has stood out for its traditional Tandoor oven, its good selection of Italian wines and excellent sauces. Meals come to a deliciously flavoursome end with a "cocktail" of seeds, spices and raisins to chew on. A gracious welcome in three softly lit rooms (one for smokers).
Via Melzo 16 Porta Venezia district
tel. [+39] 02 201673 Porta Venezia
$$ .:. Warsà
One of the best known Eritrean restaurants in Milan. The main course comes as a single helping for two people (a vegetarian version is also available): spiced meat and vegetables served on the typical thin, spongy bread called em>ingerà, which is used instead of cutlery. Try the dessert made of sesame and the tea with cinnamon and cloves.
