The same as always

The gyros are even better now that they've installed a fryer at this location. Everything is as good as it's ever been at this Columbia location. Service, food, and location are all tended as well as they have been for years. Bravo!

I used to eat at this place all of the time because I worked nearby and the food was delicious. That was until I found a cockroach in my pumpkin one time.. Never again will I eat here.... It's one thing to need an exterminator but to serve it to a customer without noticing is horrible.

We tried the Maiwand Kabob in Columbia Crossing and we enjoyed it. This is a sit-down, table service place. I had chicken kabobs and my husband had lamb and potato curry. The entrees were accompanied by generous servings of rice, vegetables, and naan. The restaurant is very attractive with an indoor waterfall. The service was good.

Food ia great but service is always terrible. 35mins for food and 15 min just to get water. Servers need to go through training this is always the same

This is local favorite Maiwand Kabob's first table-service location, it's an attractive space that belies its strip-mall location. There's a couple of semi-private booths for larger groups, also. I've usually done carryout from the original Harper's Choice location, but came here for a minor occasion recently. Attentive service, very good food. Some of the sides are a little different than...

The lamb curry on Fridays is particularly nice, as is the Chicken Jalfrezzi on Wednesdays. The bread is wonderful, as is the hummus. A real winner for Afghan food in Columbia.

We had three different meat dishes and one of the vegetarian dishes, Without exception all of the meats were tough and dry. The expensive lamb chops were the saddest of all. Thin, way over done and covered with an awful hot spice. The naan is pasty and chewy as latex. The sort of fried rice with each meat dish is... More

The restaurant has a really nice decor. The service is good. Our food was excellent although the salmon was a on the dry side (hence the 4 rating) but everybody else was very happy with their meals. Our friends are vegetarians and were pleased with the selection. We will come back for sure.

Went on a Tuesday night and only 2 tables were occupied. Ordered some food and it took a long time to bring it out for such a slow day. food was very flavorful and good. We had to wait some time to re-order the bread as no one came to check on us. When we asked another waiter he replied... More

My wife and I have been here a number of times, and each and every time we are given very good service and wonderful food. Their beef, lamb, or chicken is prepared extremely well, spiced just right. Their sides are equally flavorful and the portions are more than we can usually eat in one sitting. The dining room is inviting... More
