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

Food was good. Rosemary naan awesome. Scallops awesome. Lentil soup was straight broth and nothing else, and there were no vegetables added to the meat dishes which was weird. We didn't get lentil crackers for a complimentary appetizer like the people at the table beside us and every other Indian restaurant I've ever been to. We assumed this place just... More

I grew up on very hot spicy food. I usually find an Indian restaurant when on a long term project. I asked for a Lamb Saag dish hot and that's what I got. I was surprised by the large portion which I could not finish. So I ate the rest for breakfast at the hotel the next morning! There was... More

Best Indian food in Charlottesville. Dining in is a true pleasure, but you can order take-out and it is great also, which is not always the case with restaurants that do both. Highly recommended.

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
