Milan Indian Cuisine Ratings and Reviews

Excellent and reasonably priced Indian food. Whether you like it mild or spicy, they will customize your dishes. A great selection, ideal for meat-eaters or vegetarians. I have eaten in scores of Indian restaurants and this is one of the best.

Overall our meal and the service was excellent. The starters of bhel puri and fried cauliflower in spicy tomato sauce were outstanding. There was everything to praise and nothing to complain about in this experience. Thank you, Milan, for a lovely dinner!
PS My husband went to their lunch buffet recently and said it was the best lunch he's ever had in Charlottesville.

We eat frequently at Indian restaurants in Maryland, DC, and Virginia and Milan ranks right up there with some of the best food we have had. Additionally, the service was very good. They happily made adjustments to accommodate several people at our table to address an allergy and spice levels. When we arrived, there were several tables with Indian diners which we viewed as a positive sign that Milan served good traditional Indian food. We were not disappointed.
Go-to for good Indian food in Charlottesville
We've been to Milan multiple times now (twice for special occasions--anniversary and birthday), plus have done take-out there as well as Sunday brunch. It's consistently excellent food, very filling, and we have always felt it has a good, relaxed vibe. The service is good but they also fade to the background and just let you enjoy your meal, which we like.
Quality Food and Service
We always enjoy Milan, which has consistently offered quality food and service in a quiet atmosphere (rare for Charlottesville restaurants). I am a vegetarian and appreciate the many offerings on the menu. Two favorites are the cauliflower appetizer and eggplant entrée.
Excellent Service and Food
I recently went there with a friend, and we were both surprised with how polite and friendly the servers were. The food wasn't amazing, but it was definitely very good (I thought my portion was a bit small, but hers was more than enough for her). Upon leaving, we accidentally left our leftovers on the table, and our waiter was kind enough to catch us before we drove off and give us our food.
Food was really good but.....
We had a chi,d w us so we asked for no hot spices and the food was still pretty spicy for our kid. That just meant more food for us to eat - place was freezing cold too. Food there is pretty awesome and service is pretty good. They do a great job. Those were my only concerns.
Best Indian I've had in years!!
I was previously spoiled by a great tandoori Indian restaurant in upstate NY, and thought I would never find something like that again outside of a major city. Milan is fantastic and brings back many memories. The service was great, attentive, but not overwhelming. I also felt like I was able to relax and enjoy the food, since we did order a lot, and wasn't rushed to eat and go like typical American restaurants on a Friday night.
I will definitely put this on the list for restaurants to visit often in Charlottesville. :-)
I have definitely had better indian food at a lower price. The naan was dry and hard. We ordered garlic and plain and there was little difference between the two. I ordered Chicken Ka Korma the chicken was WAY over cooked/dry/tough and the sauce was bland. Service was slow and server did not have a good understanding of the menu. I gave two stars because the interior was pretty.
Best Indian food I've had in a very long time.
Best Indian food I've had in a long time and for only $10 had an amazing buffet. I don't usually like palak paneer but theirs made me a fan. I'm going to drive all the way back from DC the next time I have a craving. We have nothing this good especially in that price range. Huge fan of Milan Indian Cuisine.
I ate at Milan three years ago when I was in Charlottesville for my daughter's graduation from UVA. When I returned this fall for a wedding, I decided to give it a try once again. I was not disappointed. The food, service and atmosphere was as I remembered as wonderful. I love Indian food and this place is consistently good. I will come again when I'm in Charlottesville next time.
Excellent Indian Cuisine
On busy a highway in Charlottesville, one wasn't sure what to expect, but we enjoyed the visit to this very good restaurant and found the food delicious, and fun to try a new cuisine. The service was great and the dining room comfortable and pleasant. The naan bread was absolutely fresh and excellent for dipping into the great sauces in our main dishes. The menu describes in English what to expect in the individual Indian dishes, and the variety is large and varied. It was a fun experience.
Great as always!
Service and food was very tasty. Nice selection of dishes. Vegetarian appetizer is good for two people...order more if with a large party. Our family of 5 got 3 dishes and a dinner-for-two. Had plenty leftover. Dinner for two is a great deal and plenty of food.
Lives up to the hype!
When entering, the first thing you see is "Best in Charlottesville" since 2007. Now I know why. Great food with large portions, and excellent service. Never had to wait to ask for anything, and many times I didn't even have to ask. Would go again! It's quite busy, and the conversation level is loud, but the food makes it worth it!
