Nice find

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.

Stopped in for a quick lunch with a friend. The food was very tasty...we both had chicken kabobs with salad, naan bread and rice. Everything was very good. The only drawback was that since it is cooked to order it does take a little while. Not really as quick as we thought it would be because of the wait, but... More

Always a pleasure at this long-time Columbia eatery. Best Afghani food outside of Baltimore. Very nice people to boot.

This is mostly a carry-out restaurant with a small number of tables which allow you to carry your tray to a seat if you want to eat there. It is located in a shopping center. However, the food is delicious, well priced and call-ahead service is always ready when you arrive and is freshly made. Daily specials are a good... More

The menu has a nice variety and most dishes are excellent. It is a great place for doing carry-out. The lamb chops are particularly good.

As a take-out stop, Maiwand Kabob is a very good choice for their Afghanistani based menu. The food is fresh, well spiced, and the service is fairly fast. We are most fond do the lamb kabobs, the veggie platter and the samosas. Conveniently located in mid Columbia. Best to call in your order to avoid the wait.

Attractive restaurant on Columbia's east side. The vegetables, especially the pumpkin, are outstanding. Chicken and lamb entrees are also good. The falooda milkshake with Middle Eastern spices is a rare treat. People visit this restaurant just for the falooda. The wait staff is extremely accommodating. You order at the counter and they bring the food to your table. Part of... More

I discovered this place last year, and have enjoyed it for take out food. I like the veggie platter, but the lamb and chicken are also good. The past few times I've eaten the food it has been too spicy for me. I don't know if they have made it spicier or what. If they could tone down on the... More
