We were quickly seated, had water quickly filled – and stayed filled all evening, very professional and friendly staff, and the fool was excellent. I ordered chai and asked if it was made with scald milk. He said yes with a look of confusion and I mentioned to him that this is not always the case. I have to say... More

We were here twice - excellent service and food. Knowledgeable staff recommend what to order. Menu has street food as well as main courses. Mango lassi could be better.

I have a lot of food allergies and usually shy away from Indian restaurants as they commonly use artificial colours. Not so Milan Indian. The food is delicious, the servings generous and the service excellent. So good to enjoy Indian food with no ill effects.

I almost hate to say the word "buffet," as that is a turnoff for many diners. Still, this is our go-to, blue ribbon, best Indian meal in Charlottesville. Garlic naan is a great way to start, and perhaps a mango yogurt lassi, and then hit the buffet. The servers quickly refill the trays as the food disappears fast- it is... More

We are still looking for the best Indian restaurant in Charlottesville and, so far, Milan is the best we have found. However, we strongly recommend this restaurant for the lunch buffet. Do not let the idea of a buffet turn you away! You will get an opportunity to sample the best of their dishes, including their chicken tikka masala and... More

Maybe it was a bad night, but we had a reservation in advance for a booth and ended up wedged in a corner at a table next to a large party instead of in a booth per our reservation. The kids were jumping up and down on the benches, chairs, and screaming. Service was very very slow. Waters were filled... More
