Maiwand is always good. The location is nothing special, but the food is good, well prepared and the people working here always nice.

We had a very tasty take out dinner from Maiwand Kebab in Harper's Choice last night--with enough left over for lunch today. The lamb kebab and rice were wonderful. My only complaint is that the onion on the kebab was almost raw. When I make kebabs at home, I par boil the onions to cook them a little before they're... More

Great take out for the family. The food is tasty and reasonably priced. You can eat there but I have not and probably would not (not really by type of place to eat...no atmosphere), but who cares, I will go there anytime for the food to take home. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu.

I love this restaurant, the food is fresh, cooked to order and reasonably priced. I just wish they had more vegetarian options. Can't go wrong with this one!

The food is always good at Maiwand and today was no exception. The wait can sometimes be long but it's worth it.

We ordered a carry out order of the chicken kabob platter. The service was friendly and there is a lot of food for the price. The chicken is spiced well and cooked nicely. The rice is flavorful and the salad is crispy. The tandoori bread is delicious and the yogurt cilantro yogurt sauce compliments the dish well.

We came in with a very large group but the food and the service did not suffer. Everyone in the group agreed the food was wonderful. I ordered the Chicken Tikka Kabob and was very pleased with the taste and texture. The Samosa appetizer was excellent. Our server was very nice and never overwhelmed by the crowd. I would eat...

Excellent food. Be prepared to wait awhile -- everything is made on site and to order. You can take out or eat in; you may have to wait for a table. There is outdoor seating.
