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

All the food I have had is simply delicious and not expensive. Good for takeout. Restaurant is very very small.

I got two orders of Lamb & chicken Kabobs to go for my son and me. The meat was well cooked & tender and the spices not too bad. My son, who has been to Afghanistan, liked the meal very muck. I only liked the meat, not the appetizer nor sides. The kabobs were made after I ordered so they... More

Rubber band inside of the kofta kabob. Worst customer service in the world. Will NEVER be back When you originally get the "give me a reason to spit in your food" vibe from the unhappy/rude/disrespectful employees and then you end up w/ a rubber band in your meat kabob...RUN do not walk from Maiwand Kabob The to top it off...
