We almost walked past this place as it looked quiet, but are so glad we went in. It was excellent and the waiter was helpful and stopped us ordering too much. Very nicely flavoured dishes, spicy but not hot. Good quality beef and chicken. All delicious. Wine and beer was nice and well priced. The whole package was a good... More

We have a new local favorite! Three of us dined at Ariana last night and I can’t imagine how we missed this gem. I will get right to it. We started with an order of Pakawra Badenjan and also the Sambosa. The Pakawra Badenjan had this really delicate batter that gave it the perfect texture and sweetness to work with... More

The price was right, about $7 for a lamb wrap. The garlic sauce is really yummy; the hot sauce was all right, but the garlic sauce really makes the sandwich. Service and seating are casual, with just counter service for ordering/picking up food. Self-serve drinks, tables that can accommodate small to medium-size groups (2 to 6).

We have never been disappointed with Ariana Kabob. Afghan Cuisine is very flavorful. The owner's wife prepares what are always very good, and sometimes really outstanding, dishes. The prices are reasonable and the owner and his sons ensure a prompt and courteous service.

I had dinner ar Ariana, a pleasant sit down restaurant with excellent service. First course was one of the bolanis (turnovers) on the menu. It was crisp and tasty. The bonus was the accompanying green coriander sauce, which was just spectacular. Main course was lamb shanks with cauliflower. It was falling off the bone, tender and tasty. Why not five... More

I was a bit apprehensive when I first visited the Ariana Kabob House with neighbors, because I’m not an adventurous eater and don’t care for exotic dishes or spicy food. As it turned out, I had nothing to fear. While there may be some exotic and spicy dishes on the menu, many are not much different than your regular American... More
