I was trying to go back to the restaurant where I enjoyed a decent meal last summer (in June 2014) and where I had a spectacular pumpkin side dish. Only to find out that the restaurant no longer is open. There is still some furniture...More

Unless they have moved and changed their number, this restaurant is no longer open. I imagine increasing costs and smaller portion sizes took its toll on their repeat business.

I just want to say that I am a local cville-ian. The food is nice but half of the time its burnt or is cold and if you confront the owner, she ends up shouting at you. She ended up fighting with me and my...More

We went there waited for one hour to be seated and then refused to serve us the food . She had some attitude issue. We were a party 23 ppl with kids . She would not allow kids to enter in the restaurant

I made a reservations for 6 pm. But got there a little early. They didnt let us sit. Even though there were vacant table inside and out. Simply a poor service. Owned by the worst lady. Very very illiterate. Never go there. They suck

We found this restaurant because my wife stays abreast of the local news. (We're proudly locals). Obviously lots of others have found Ariana's as well. The food is excellent and displays that the chef knows what he/she's doing. The service is very good and it's...More

I like this place. Small, cosy and friendly. The food is tasty and well prepared. My waitress, Rachel, persuaded me to have the spinach curry with my kabobs and I had to thank her for doing so. Portions are just right. If I lived closer...More

My wife and I stopped here returning to Indiana from Va. What a lucky find. Being unfamiliar with Afghani food, we needed some help from the waitress, who was knowledgeable and pleasant. My wife had Auosh (?), a spicy soup, as a starter, and I...More
