I ordered take out and it was not worth it. We ordered chicken kebab which served us with three morsels of chicken. The entree curries were the size of sides. They skimped on the main courses but not on the rice. I should have asked for more chicken with my rice when ordering a chicken kebab. Not recommended.

I never ordered from Ariana before and I won't do it again. The food came quickly enough but in the end it didn't make up for anything. The salad, shredded lettuce with a little tomato was useless and the appetizer was inedible, but there was something familiar about the taste. It wasn't until I had sampled the entree that I realized the strange taste in the food was lighter fluid it was very raw and harsh. Not like it was spilled onto the food, I'd be sick by now, more like when you barbecued in the back yard for yourself the first time and didn't know you didn't need to use so much or that you needed to wait for it all to burn away or the food would reek of it. I still smell it and the food is outside in the trash. This could be a one time incident but I wouldn't waste any more money to find out.

I've been here a handful of times with my husband and family and cannot stop ordering the pumpkin curry. It is just so delicious! The waiter could use some help though....he's the only one! And the restaurant is a bit outdated but the food makes up for all of it.

I'm trying food from different countries in New York since this state is so diverse. The food was great, very tasty and the service was excellent. The best part was it's not too pricey. I'll definitely go there again and try something different.

My friend and I stumbled onto this restaurant while walking along 9th and the food was great! While my meal was a bit dry, there are sauces on the table that you can add to it. The stewed lamb was cooked perfectly and the appetizers were very good. It's a small spot and I wouldn't recommend it for a "nice" dinner, but just for a night out it's a good option, especially if you don't eat pork! I will definitely be going back and recommending it to other people. In fact, I'm ordering from there for delivery tonight!

ariana is like someone's afghani grandmother's kitchen and dining room. it's small, quaint, and the flavors are spot on (more often than not). mind the at times chatty waiter - especially if you are dining as two women!!

The decor is fab, with many hanging Afghan rugs. The visuals are the highlight. The food costs double what it should, especially if it were prepared well. Portions are tiny. The brown rice they advertise is really a non-brown Basmati variety. "Salad" consists of lifeless shredded white and yellow iceberg lettuce, diced tomatoes, a few pieces of onion, and overly bitter lemon/vinegar, oil "dressing." The curried pumpkin was actually interesting, but miniature in portion. I will not return to this mid-town place and advise others to avoid Ariana.
