We are still looking for the best Indian restaurant in Charlottesville and, so far, Milan is the best we have found. However, we strongly recommend this restaurant for the lunch buffet. Do not let the idea of a buffet turn you away! You will get an opportunity to sample the best of their dishes, including their chicken tikka masala and... More

My son and I went to Milan for lunch. He has been asking me to take him to Indian for a few months now. He had the Chicken Tikka and I had a Chicken Paneer with the spinach. We also had garlic naan. It was perfect. As well, they had a really nice buffet. Please go here and ask for... More

Maybe it was a bad night, but we had a reservation in advance for a booth and ended up wedged in a corner at a table next to a large party instead of in a booth per our reservation. The kids were jumping up and down on the benches, chairs, and screaming. Service was very very slow. Waters were filled... More

Having lived in the NYC metro for 40 years we were never at a loss for great Indian restaurants. That changed when we moved to central Virginia, until we found Milan in C'ville. It's as good as anything in NY, and we go there whenever possible. The poori is spectacular, as is the Tikka Masala, among many other dishes. And,... More

You know, the first thing I do when looking for a restaurant is to see the negative reviews here in Tripadvisor. And folk, I cannot explain, nor accept, the bad comments I've seen. Either these naysayers are totally ignorant or are just miserable enough that nothing would satisfy them. Milan has got to be one of the finest restaurants I... More

Words can't even describe how good this restaurant was. You must go try it for yourself.... Highly recommend the tandoori chicken. Stop reading this and go... I'm serious. Go!

I believe you should go with the buffet at this restaurant. On average, their ala carte dishes are around $13 while the buffet price is $15. So for me it's more worth it to go with the buffet package. And I did not regret it, good quality food, very tasty and delicious. Highly recommended if you are staying at Charlottesville... More
