This restaurant was listed in the guide put out by NPR (Nat'l Public Radio). We 'd also checked online and found this website. I and my 2 friends had different meals: a vegetable combo plate of pumpkin curry, eggplant curry and spinach; lamb kabob, and a codfish kabob. Also, desserts of firnee and baklava. We truly enjoyed our meals; the fish and lamb kabobs were succulent, the vegetable curries tasty, we also liked the sides of rice w/ almonds and raisins. We thought the food was fairly priced and found the portions of good size. The atmosphere is cozy (only a dozen or so tables). Service was congenially provided All in all, a delightful dining experience!

The staff was the nicest! They made dinner more enjoyable and personal. and the food is delicious! especially the appetizers and the lamb. the leek dumplings weren't as good as everything else.

This place really lives up to the great reviews. The food was delicious- so flavorful without being overpoweringly spicy. The resturant is small but beautifully decorated and very clean. Service was also fantastic- very friendly. This place is really a treat.

The food was delicious. It looked simple but the complexity of spices and sauces made it quite unique. The gentle-man that waited on us after the initial welcome by other waiters was warm, proud and very hospitable. We definitely will go back. The tea was served in a silver like pot on a mini magic carpet and spiced perfectly it was so cool. My son loved the pistachio almond pudding he licked the bowl clean. Yummy desserts! When done he was looking around for any leftovers it was that delicious. Also, the chicken broth soup is way more than its title.

I had never had Afghan food before so decided to try it, based on the reviews from this website. This restaurant is small, probably about 7 tables. And the seats arent the most comfortable but no big deal. The food was excellent. We had 2 drinks, 2 appetizers, 2 entrees, a side dish and a dessert and our check was $57 pretty darn good if you ask me. All the food we ordered was great and I definitely would go back to try more dishes.

My girlfriend and I had a delicious chef's choice dinner at this lovely restaurant. Ariana is the perfect place for an authentic Afghani dinner off the main street. The service was personal and knew what we wanted.

Stopped in after a Saturday matinee as a result of reading about it here. We weren't disappointed. The food was simple and delicious. Rafi was a charming host and waiter. The price was right. The place only seats about 30 people so we were lucky we came early. It was almost empty when we arrived at 5 and full by the time we left at 6:15. Only negative comment was from my wife who wished they had more than one bathroom for all patrons, male and female. But we all agreed that we would come back, and that it was worth recommending.
