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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

Lamb saag not as good as other visits. The meat did not taste fresh. Either that or it was of inferior quality l

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.

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.

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 :)

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.

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.

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.
