I never really experienced my mouth/stomach being blown away from the first bite until I tried Ariana. The mid-town west restaurant carries a variety of middle-eastern dishes, all of which can stand on their own as incredible. The owner is a splendid delight of entertainment and comfort in this small authentic cove. If you have not stepped it up and dived into the aquatic heaven of Ariana, then please do so immediately, Simply the best food around.

Everything about this restaurant is wonderful. The owner is friendly and accommodating, the food is excellent, and the "best bet tea" is incredible. Check out their shish kabob plates, and try some pumpkin curry and okra dishes. I haven't had one thing on the menu I didn't love. You won't be disappointed!

Who cares about the atmosphere when you're served the best food in the city by a pleasant waiter every time. Ariana is my food hero! Thanks guys for caring and for a job well done.

Ariana is a wonderful restaurant, because it delivers a small, cozy environment, with fast customer service, and declicious Afghan style food. It is a good experience every time!! I typically get the chicken kabab, and lamb curry, and they are excellent!! Highly recommended. You should also try the spinach samusa. A++!!

If you're looking for a romantic dining experience, this place is not for you. The place is too small, and is usually very crowded. But the food is very good!! I would visit again soon.

I ordered takeout from Ariana based on the Menupages review. I got the chicken kebab lunch special for $9. I was quite disappointed. Firstly, when I arrived (at 1pm on a workday), the restaurant was completely empty (and it smelled musty like old carpet). When I got back to my office, I opened the container to see 5 sad little chicken pieces on rice. The rice had a dish soap taste, and the "marinated" chicken had no taste at all! I will say that the chicken was tender, and the lettuce in the salad was crisp and fresh. Maybe it was just an off day, but I won't return.
