We ordered a carry out order of the chicken kabob platter. The service was friendly and there is a lot of food for the price. The chicken is spiced well and cooked nicely. The rice is flavorful and the salad is crispy. The tandoori bread is delicious and the yogurt cilantro yogurt sauce compliments the dish well.

We came in with a very large group but the food and the service did not suffer. Everyone in the group agreed the food was wonderful. I ordered the Chicken Tikka Kabob and was very pleased with the taste and texture. The Samosa appetizer was excellent. Our server was very nice and never overwhelmed by the crowd. I would eat...

Excellent food. Be prepared to wait awhile -- everything is made on site and to order. You can take out or eat in; you may have to wait for a table. There is outdoor seating.

Have been eating take-out there for 15 years. Combo platters plus sides are always good, and just made while you wait,

OH my goodness. I get the vegetarian platter once a week, pretty much. It's so tasty, and I don't feel extremely guilty for eating it, as long as I don't eat it all in one meal! Spinach, chick peas, eggplant, pumpkin, potatoes... all so good! And get the green sauce on the side. I'd put that **** on everything.

Best kabobs ever! Reasonably priced, great for takeout. It's a joke in the wall so seating is limited, and they have a TV that's tuned to a news channel. I highly recommend the kofta or chicken Kabob, and their chick peas are also the bomb!

We love this place! We eat here so much that we get tired of it and then we come back to it over and over again. I love the lamb platter. My girlfriend loves the vegetarian platter. We always get extra naan, it's so good. We've never had a bad meal. I can't recommend this place enough.

I'm writing this review after having dined here and taken carry-out numerous times over the last few years. My favorite is the chicken Malay, always delicious. The dining room is clean, very simple and uninteresting, wait staff are friendly and courteous. It's location in a shopping center provides ample free parking. Another reviewer commented that the food is Americanized and... More

First time here, I got a vegetable platter, it was very good, I did the take out. Place is small but has a nice selection of food. I will be going back to try other items. It was fast, good price and nice people. Love how the cook the bread in front of you. It is worth a trip.

You can rely on Maiwand Kabob at Harpers Choice for quick, tasty food for reasonable prices. A nice kabob dinner is $13-$15. They also have an excellent vegetarian platter. And the Naan bread is always hot and fresh. I love to go here for carry-out.
