The beef and chicken kabob was great! The beef was cooked perfect and was very tender. Everything on my plate had great taste. I even recommended it to the instructor of the course I was taking. You won't be disappointed.

This little Kabob place on the ground floor of an office building offers up good food if you are looking for something a little different. The menu is not huge, and there is not much in the way of ambiance, but everything that I have tried has been very tasty.

I agree with the other contributors, this is the best restaurant in Linthicum. Great appetizers, authentic Kabobs (savory not Americanized with added sugar). I had the chicken and lamb and it's tough to say which was better. Great atmosphere and nice staff - made me feel like I was back in college with the relaxed and friendly pace.

Amazing menu. Order ahead of time so you don't have to wait as the food is prepared fresh. If you are in hurry order the special which can be prep'd faster.

The Restaurant is located just next to the Hampton Inn. After a long day of road trip driving, we checked in to the Hotel and headed here for dinner. Did not disappoint. The only reason I didn't rate it 5 is because it didn't have good options for kids.

I decided to try the #1 rated restaurant in Linthicum. I ordered a chicken salad, which was very good, but I could not enjoy it as they took 26 minutes to make it and I had about 5 minutes to eat it. I decided to give them a second chance, but gave myself ample time. This time they took 35... More

We've been going to Maiwand from time to time over the last 9 years and it never disappoints. Portions are large and the food is extremely well prepared. The pumpkin is divine and I especially like the salmon. I just wish it was a true sit down restaurant!

This is average Afghan food. Not bad, but hardly deserving of the gushing reviews here. Staying nearby, I thought -- based on reviews here-- "gotta give it a try". Charitably, I'd call it "fair". Aushak, the triangular ravioli-like dish, which can be light and wonderful, was heavy and goopy. Not bad, but hardly five stars. Plenty of places do it... More
