We have struggled for years to find a good Indian but this one is certainly one of the best, food well cooked and full of flavors you would expect and well presented service was good and attentive without being over the top

Went for Indian Buffett with family while in Charlottesville today - Excellent service, Delicious food and a long line to get in. Well worth the short wait... Great spread of Vegetarian and Non Vegetarian food - great desserts and hot, soft Nan coming to the table while we ate. The parking lot was nearly full - with all the people... More

Went for a nice Indian meal on a Saturday night. The menu is typical but with many choices of sauce/protein match ups. Chicken, lamb, goat, and shrimp were available choices in addition to vegetarian options. We shared Tika Massala, Korma, Rogan Josh, and Saag sauces with all of the above proteins. The actual pairings didn't matter. All but the Korma... More

We have been eating a lot of Mexican food in Charlottesville so we decided to try Indian for a change. This was the best rated of three available. They offer everything but beef, and my favorite Indian dish is Beef Vindaloo, but that's probably because the owner is Hindu and they believe cows are sacred. But they offer lamb and... More

We love Indian food, so for a change after a Mexican restaurant we were craving for some good, hot Indian dishes. My first impression of Milan was very favorable. I found it a well-managed, well cared tasteful place. In one of the reviews I read that the waiters never smile. So when a waiter came to take our order, I... More

My husband and I stopped for a quick lunch at Milan in Charlottesville and they had an awesome lunch buffet. They had many items to select from, and everything was clean and stocked well. Service was good and the ambiance was nice. We will return.

I've been here for dinner and the lunch buffet and I have never been disappointed. The service is good, food is well flavored, and atmosphere is nice. The food for the buffet, when I went, had shrimp dishes, multiple chicken dishes, and lamb dishes, as well as multiple vegetarian dishes. They also had a variety of spicy and mild dishes.... More

We ordered the vegetarian thali, a subzi (bhindi masala), garlic nan and bhel puri. The thali came with palak paneer and malai kofta. The thali was presented in a steel plate and came with a lot of rice. The taste of the items were neither great or bad. Overall, an average Indian restaurant.

Having dined in Indian restaurants throughout the US and some in the UK, we found the food at Milan mediocre. In fact, if we lived locally we would not go back. Out of 3 Indian restaurants in Charlottesville, this one ranked the highest on Tripadvisor but that's not saying much. Several staff members waited on our table and not one... More
