A friend kept telling me to go. When I finally did, I found the food to be awesome. I either get the chicken or shrimp kabob dinner. Everything is fresh and tender. The rice that comes with it is great and the bread (kind of like Naan) is made on the spot and brought to the table right out of... More

Stopped by for lunch with a friend from work and had the lunch buffet. Definitely recommend getting the buffet. You will not be disappointed! Amazing Kabob place hidden in Columbia!

We often eat at Maiwand Kabob and think it's excellent, but a recent experience was not so. We ordered the Tuesday special Chicken (on bone) Curry. It was terrible. There was very little meat and a lot of small bones. It was difficult to eat and once you had sifted through the many bones, there was very little meat.

I have been here couple of times and the food is not consistent. The kabobs are greasy. The only flavour is the oil and butter they have used to grill kabobs. The Lamb kabob is dry and flavorless. This franchise is a joke for Afghani food. The Lunch buffet is a joke. Avoid the buffet.

My wife and I had another dinner here tonight and enjoyed ourselves immensely. Our dishes were delivered hot and delicious as always.

Try the pumpkin appetizer - very tasty. Meat portions are somewhat small, so check out the buffet. Kofta and Chicken combo is nicely spiced. Plenty to eat. Salads could use more dressing - ask for it. Cilantro yogurt sauce is the best around. If you have food left over to take out, grab your Naan and ask for some extra... More

I went here for dinner with my husband one afternoon. I had a chicken shawarma and french fries. The chicken shawarma was huge and hard to eat. Also, it did not taste like the typical chicken shawarma that I've had at other Mediterranean style restaurants, which was quite disappointing. My husband was not that big fan of his dish either....

We were back in the area and wanted to try their lunch buffet. While not the cheapest lunch at $16 a head, it more than made up for in the opportunity to try so many menu items in one visit. My wife hates mushrooms but after trying their chicken and mushroom dish it turned out to be her favorite. They... More

Went here with several friends from Egypt and received a lot of food for the little price. It was excellent and very healthy! Fast friendly service, and I went back several times over the few weeks I was in the area for business. Their Lamb Curry and Chicken Jalfarazi are excellent! Very tasty, not hot but really good spicy, and... More
