We enjoyed our meal at Milan tonight. The dinner service began with popadom and a selection of three sauces. We had a paneer dish which was in a heavy creamy sauce. We also had a chicken and vegetable dish from a traditional dish menu. We had very good Peshwari Nann as well. We were staying at the Holiday Inn next... More

Milan has a new menu and it has a variety of dishes, but is a bit confusing, but the waiter was more than happy to clear it up (what came with dinners, how spicy the meal was, etc) Meal itself was more food than could be eaten- lamb with veggies. tender, but a little spicy, even when ordered mild. They... More

The restaurant had great potential but the papadums were stale and the meat in our chicken dish tasted like it was processed chicken. The Indian sauces were fabulous. Service was good.

Although the restaurant doesn't have a particularly atmospheric interior, I was very pleased with the freshly prepared, high quality food. Starting with the complimentary popadums (not deep fried but instead grilled) with more unusual, rather interesting chutneys, I very much enjoyed the mango lassie I ordered. Very full flavour, creamy and fruity and not too sweet. My main course -... More

A nice restaurant; plenty of good Indian food and above all friendly staff. I'll definitely go there again when I am back next year.

In the spirit of full disclosure, I love Indian food; even fast food. But this place seemed nearly on par with restaurants in San Francisco, London and Amsterdam. Take that with a grain of proverbial salt because this was a single visit. The location is not exotic and the building exterior is not a draw. It's a bit difficult to... More

We arrived almost towards the end of the day around 9pm and yet they took us. The treatment and service was great, didnot show us as if they were in any hurry to close the restaurant. Served us very well.we ordered tandoori chicken and rogan josh. Both were great. Dessert Keer was amazing, as good as home made... Even though... More

Milan has some of the best Indian food in Charlottesville, but even the mild options are spicy so it's not great for kids.

We have found one of the best Indian restaurants around. We used to go to another restaurant in the area, but they are OUT! Milan's lunch buffet can't be beat. Every time you go there is something new to try. Not just a small sample, but 3 or 4 new dishes. They season their food well, which is rare. When... More
