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.

This place is much better than Bamiyan, which was rated higher by Time Out. Everything we ate was quite delicious, from the eggplant appetizers to the firnee desert. The kebab was not the highlight (though it was fine). I thought the other flavors were better served. The decor is quaint and pleasant, and the service very friendly. I would definitely go back.

Had an impromptu dinner here on Friday night. The food is healthy and light, with just the right amount of spice. The appetizers are fabulous, as are the various eggplant dishes. Service was friendly and informal, but very attentive. All in all, a great place to go for a casual dinner. But don't bring a large group - the place is small.

I first went to this restaurant 2 months ago and have visited two more times. All of the food was outstanding and the friendly owner went out of his way with his excellent service. I recommend the fried pumpkin appetizer, Aushak, and "HappyTea" which tastes like lemonade.

Cant beat the kebab and rice!
