I used to live down the street from Ariana, and I would go there for special occasions-- my birthday, after taking the bar exam, Valentine's Day, after graduation. They always had consistently amazing food and good service. The price is great for what a good restaurant and how amazing the food is. Go early on a weekend night or any... More

Visited Ariana for dinner after reading some positive reviews online. The food was fabulous, unique and affordable ( under $20 for entrees ). The wait staff is top notch, and treat the guests better than if you were at a 5 star restaurant. Can't wait to return!

Visited Ariana with a large group of friends many of who are strict vegetarians and had a very good time. The service is friendly and quick in a very pleasant environment. The menu offers an excellent selection of both vegetarian and meat choices. Everyone was very pleased with their choices, I had the Mourgh Challow and really enjoyed the exotic... More

This is a great Afghan restaurant that has loads of Vegetarian options. The restaurant has a simple but classy feel to it and the service is excellent. The food itself is tastefully served, and I loved both our appetizers (aushak, banjan) as well as the main course. Don't miss out on the desserts, they are fantastic!

Really enjoyed my dinner last night, tasting some very good Afghan food. The food was beautifully served and the flavors were fantastic. It was a delight to taste and learn about their foods and customs.

This is a simple restaurant that provides delicious, interesting food with good service. There are vegetarian options that are just delicious! I found the pumpkin to be a super choice. The restaurant is in a fun, young neighborhood that is very walkable. Our bill was $139.00 for four people with wine and without tip. We spent about an hour and... More

Relatively small menu, but it seems all done extremely well. Some of the best, most attentive service you'll see. A bit different and a great night out!

We went there with some friends who had been to this place a few times before. The host/waiter recognized them right away – always terrific when that happens, I think. We all ordered different things and everything was excellent. There are a lot of lamb dishes on the menu but also other options – e.g. beef, chicken, vegetarian. The blend... More

Great service, friendly family Afghan restaurant. The best oven baked Afghan bread that I've had in a very long time. Yogurt sauce was excellent. We had a vegetarian dish with pumpkin and spinach that was light and filling with just the right balance of spices. Price was great value for excellent food and service.
