Arya Global Cuisine
Personable and charming -Arya is fast becoming one of our "go to" places to have great food. They have a varied menu sure to please anyone with meal portions generous without being mammoth. . Arya has entertainment as varied as the menu - for Mother's Day it was a smooth jazz duo, but I've also seen traditional dancers and other bands. The music is not overpowering to conversations. Arya can accommodate all ages of family as well as romantic evenings. The host/hostess are charming and will go out of their way to accommodate your seating wishes. Servers are friendly, fast and attentive. They have a larger seating area with a bar and another room off the front with plenty of windows and light that is smaller. Off street parking is available - spacious.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMYummy Arya!We have been to Arya as a couple and with friends 4 times. Each and every time the service was excellent and the food very well prepared. We only recently stayed for the belly dancing when we dined later and were there with friends. If going before the belly dancing the atmosphere is moderately noise, but once the dancing starts the main dining room gets very energetic. However, if the desire is a quieter experience then the separate patio room is very nice. We love the chocolate martini the bartender makes, actually enjoyed several drinks she has made for us. The variety of rice choices to go with the kabobs is very nice. My favorite is the lentil, date and raisin, not something I would have thought I'd like, excellent.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMSavor yummy foodSavor yummy food while being treated like a queen or king. Portions are enough to share or bring home. Staff is wonderfully warm and friendly. I would highly recommend this neighborhood gem.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice staff. Good PersianVery nice staff. Good Persian food that is not available elsewhere, such as chicken with a pomegranete and walnut sauce. Also has an extensive Itialian menu which I have not tried but which is good for our two young boys. Friday and Saturday nights starting at 8:30pm they have live Middle-eastern style entertainment (a band and dancers).4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice Persian food. WeVery nice Persian food. We did not try their Italian and other dishes. Rice was a bit too salty. Our waitress was wonderful. The jazz group (Friday night) was excellent. The belly dancer was also very good.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for an early dinnerWe went for an early dinner (6 pm) and the restaurant was very quiet. The food and our cocktails were great. We really enjoyed the hummus appetizer. It had a nice lemon flavor we all liked. Our server was excellent. She made some recommendations for several dishes that turned out very well. She also told us that we were missing the entertainment, which starts later in the evening. We'll have to go back at a later reservation. It sounds as if it's very lively after 7:30.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service was excellent.The food and service was excellent. We enjoyed the belly dancing, fun entertainment.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBest in the area at this price poinIt is two restaurants in one, Persian and Italian, and surprisingly, both cuisines were cooked with utmost competence.
It may not measure up to comparable Persian restaurants in Los Angeles (where the best Persian food outside of Iran is to be had) or Italian restaurants of comparable price in NY, but compared to what is available within a 50 mile radius, this is a place that will not disappoint.
Highly recommended.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful dinnerWe had a wonderful dinner and our waiter Michael was excellent!3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time, very much enjoyedFirst time, very much enjoyed our dinners. The waiter made a mistake with my order and I got the wrong rice dish, but I decided I didn't care and it was excellent. I'm inclined to blame the mistake, minor as it was, on the noise level as it was Persian New Years and they were quite busy.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first visit andThis was our first visit and we were so glad we tried Arya.
