Never Disappointed!

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... read 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

I am no expert when it comes to Indian food but from before we walked in the door it was the service that set this place apart. Perhaps it was because we were with my elderly mother, I don't know, we were treated royally by a large and busy staff of professionals. The place was near empty when we arrived... More

We stop here every time we visit Charlottesville. First time we had their lunch buffet and it was great - lots of variety and hot. Second time we had dinner and it didn't disappoint. Excellent flavors - just what we love. The restaurant has booths and it could use a little updating, but honestly their shining star is in great... More

Best authentic Indian food I've had in Charlottesville, VA. The wait staff is very helpful and polite - very accommodating. I liked everything I've ever had there. Very good selection.

This is the real deal! The Biryani was outstanding and loved the mutton! My rogan josh was perfect. The wait staff was very good to make sure the diners truly understood the meaning of "Indian hot." I was also very pleased that they are willing to make a dish "Indian hot." The wait staff was very accomplished and trained. Make... More

We ordered a bunch of vegetarian dishes and appetizers for take out. Nothing was outstanding, though nothing was bad either. The veg pakoras were not great. Malai kofta was decent, so was the bhindi. Palak paneer was average. Nothing outstanding.

Quick service and they take deliver so quickly if you are located on I29. We ordered food plenty of times while we had our extended stay and we are fully satisfied by their service and quick delivery.
