The place itself doesn't look like much, but the food was very good. Had a pork steak, which was quite tasty. Service was fast and friendly.

I had never tried an Afgan cuisine before. it was a pleasant experience. A good variety of lamb, beef and chicken dishes. I'm quite sure there was vegetarian food too. Rich salad buffet for a start made it a very complete meal.

This restaurant has been here for at least 30 years with the same people cooking and serving. They do it very well!

We made Saturday night reservations and had dinner at this self-proclaimed sole Afghan restaurant in Finland. We decided to take the 15 minute trip from Tampere to this Kangasala establishment just to have a taste. The venue is gorgeous from the outside, only spoiled by...the large local beer banner under the restaurant's logo. It was clear the restaurant is also a local watering hole from the beer-drinking, hockey watching, high-vis wearing clientele on the other side of the dining room. Not the most romantic sight to be honest, but we didn't let it bother us as we chose our table out of sight from them. Otherwise the decoration was what you would expect from a low-priced ethnic restaurant. Relatively tasteful, even. Our server was a local Kangasala-lady who was extremely friendly. The service although not posh or otherwise very restaurant-y was helpful and swift. She treated us with her knowledge of the menu and recommended the cheap house wine, which was a pleasant surprise. The server brought us three out of four plates. Somehow she had forgotten one of our orders, but made up for it with complimentary sides and brought the missing order less than 10 minutes later. Food was a solid 4. Overall great experience. :) Would recommend! 4/5More

Food is OK - tasted good but looked messy. Place needs some renovation - I would call it pub that serves food.

Very good restaurant to have a lunch or a dinner. Prices are reasonable and service is excellent. Small place with nice atmosphere. Afganistan style and food. When you visit in Kangasala go to Aryana and have an excellent food!

Very tasty food in a warm athmosphere. Music was already shutted down, when we arrived late in the evening (the first time), but it was turned on again, when we asked for it. Always good service!

Very good food. Dimension is from mild to hot. I would recommend hot chicken food and also other meals were good. It was fine that we could celebrate our meeting in friendly atmosphere. The place was this time very quiet and had only few customers....Perfect!More

Had a pleasure to visit restautant Aryana again after some years. Quality of food has always been good, and so it still is. A real Afghan restaurant in the Finnish countryside is rare, and this must be seen, enjoyed I would say. Service is also...very professional, quick and friendly.More
