We went on a day trip to Charlottesville to do a little shopping and decided to swing into Milan Indian cuisine for a quick lunch on Saturday. We were excited as we entered the restaurant to see it was a buffet! The food was beautifully presented, hot in nicely spiced! The restaurant filled up quickly which is always a good sign! We will definitely be visiting again on our next shopping trip to Charlottesville as it is about an eighth of a mile from a beautiful shopping area!
Indifferent service and hard to communicate. But the food OK and a good value.
Love this place! Food is soooo yum! Staff is professional and personable. Ambiance is tasteful and warm.
It was our first time to an Indian restaurant. We made a great choice with Milan. Our server was very helpful with all our questions and gave great suggestions also. The food was outstanding. I had a chicken dish with mango & my husband had a dish with goat which he really enjoyed. The restaurant did get loud but that was just because of all the customer they had. The restaurant was full at around 6:30 on Saturday night. We will be visiting the sister location in Richmond.
Food is always good. Great service!!
We made out reservation on Open Table expecting to be seated a regular table. Instead we were seated at the end of a long table near the rest rooms with another couple at the other end of the table. I use Open Table because we usually get attentive service being a member and get a nice table. The restaurant should not have accepted my reservation if they they couldn’t ensure us an appropriate table!
Excellent all around, as usual. Excellent selections on the menu. Hard to mis-order.
Milan is consistently a great meal. On Christmas it was very busy, however they managed it well. Great food and service. Well done Milan!
Me and all my friends loved Milan. We will recommend Milan to all our friends.
Delicious food, great service, reasonable prices. Best Indian place in Charlottesville by far.
We had the buffet. Good selection, good food, and good value. I would definitely recommend if you enjoy Indian food.
Eccellent service from JV. Food was tasty
We go to Milan quite often and have never been disappointed. For Thanksgiving and Christmas, we've gotten tired of the customary turkey (or a big ham) buffet, and Milan is a good alternative (and is normally open on those holidays). (That's not the only time we go.)
Food is absolutely delicious. We went for dinner with visiting friends and everyone loved their choices. Dishes can be made mild to “Indian-hot.” Waiters are super nice. Milan is our family’s favorite place for a special lunch - the buffet is fabulous with many delicious choices.
Food was service were excellent. staff was very involved and helped with recommendations
The food and service are excellent! It was very noisy however (especially with a screaming child) and the florescent-like light quality didn't make for a good dining ambiance. Again, the food and service were fantastic along with the Indian IPA, and the price was marvelously low! This is a very good deal.
Excellent food at a very reasonable price! Would definitely go back!
Awesome food and service. Very relaxing ambiance. Highly recommend.
Lamb saag not as good as other visits. The meat did not taste fresh. Either that or it was of inferior quality l
The food as always was excellent and the staff wonderfully accommodating, particularly since our friends' train arrived late.
Great food and service. The servers were very attentive. Food arrived quickly and tasted amazing. I would definitely come back.
The best, and most varied, Indian food in Charlottesville, and the only place one can find Woodpecker beer!!
The service was fine. The appetizer was good. The main entree was disappointing. The cooking was lazy and nothing note worthy. The two dishes we ordered came out to be the same looking and tasting dish.
I am not a huge fan of Indian cuisine, but I did like this restaurant. It has a broad range of specialties from across India so it can satisfy many preferences. They also serve a few types of wine from the budding Indian wine industry, which is interesting. I enjoyed the Tandoori chicken and the chef was kind enough to let me try 2 sauces for dipping instead of one. We share the eggplant dish at the table which was delicious. Everyone enjoyed their food and it doesn't bust the budget.
Very attentive. Food was delicious and hot. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Milan was some of the best Indian food I have ever had!!
Food very good for the price but noise level very high
Fantastic food. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Amazing Chai Tea.
Good place for a group dinner, food good, price very good. Service very good.
As usual, excellent food and service. My favorite restaurant in Charlottesville.
Food still good, but they are skimping on portion size
Had dinner including chicken saag and egg plant, both tasty, but size of portions was surprisingly small.
Service was very good and food was quite good. We were there on a Friday night and it was crowded and noisy. We will definitely go back.
My fiancée and I got the combination dinner for two. Each dish tasted fanstastic and the service was also well executed. If you order this combination dinner, come hungry as there is a lot of food or take it home and enjoy it later :)
Love the food. Service is great. Owner is so polite and positive spirit. It is clean and inviting. I have suggested this place many times. I rarely go out to eat, but when I do, this is my first and favorite choice. Thank you.
We made a reservation for 8 of us on a weeknight to celebrate a birthday and Milan was fantastic! They had our table ready when we arrived, the waiters were very attentive, and the food came out in no time at all. The restaurant even allowed us to bring in our own birthday cake and they brought it out with a candle and sang happy birthday for us. All in all it was a fabulous experience. We will absolutely go back to Milan.
Fantastic food and service. They’re very accommodating to allergies and dietary restrictions as well. Almost every item on the menu can be made gluten or dairy free. I’ll definitely be going back!
Very busy for Valentine’s Day but service was excellent ! Enjoyed the eggplant with tomato sauce and chicken tikka. My favorite first course is the spicy Bhel Pouri. Garlic naan wonderful. The bonus came at the end. Two red roses for the women :)
Overall the food is excellent. However, I found the ambience to be slightly lacking -- most particularly the noise level, which made it difficult to hear my own table companions (I was in the corner of a table of 6, but in the seat that was most middle in the room). At times I just gave trying to participate in the conversation. The wait staff was ok, although one waiter was slightly aggressive in encouraging the ordering of more naan than we could possibly need.
I always enjoy dining here! I do make reservations first, however, as it can be crowded.
Very good Indian food for Virginia, with many choices. Their appetizer of cauliflower in sweet and sour sauce is excellent and must be tried. The wait staff are eager to please and pleasant.
