This is one of my favorite restaurants in San Diego! The food is consistently excellent and reasonably priced. Great vegetarian sampler plates as well as delicious chicken, lamb, and beef dishes.

We just happened upon this restaurant a few weeks ago. It looked quiet so we weren't sure, but it was amazing! We've been back since and the service and food are equally lovely. We've had the beef and chicken kebab plates, a side of dal, a combination plate and a vegetarian plate - all amazing! Plates are served with bread... More

This restaurant is in an out of the way location and is hard to see. Parking in the area is tight due to the hotels, Denny's, and other restaurants there. They do have parking spots marked for their restaurant though, and we had a security guard make sure we were going to eat there. The interior of this Afghan Kabob... More

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 driven by this place since it opened and were wondering about it! Noticed a friend "Liked It". So we decided to give it a try. We were the first and only sit down customers there at 5:30 PM on a Monday. Two other customers stopped by for take our. The vegetarian Sambosa appetizers were crispy with a spicy... More

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
