A word from Naya Sunset
Naya Sunset & Naya Lounge, two side-by-side exotic destinations on Sunset Boulevard in Silver Lake, take guests on a journey of unexpected sights and tastes with its Spacecraft-designed interior and modern-Indian cuisine by Chef Imram Ali Mookhi. Naya – “new” in Hindi, is designed to offer patrons a highly personal take on Indian cuisine in a setting that seems lifted from a set designer’s fantasy. The food: modern, California-influenced, Indian-inspired. The setting: utterly unique. Naya Lounge is a dark, moody, gothic/Moroccan scene replete with high ceilings, carved wooden arches, a marble bar and comfortable seating. Naya Sunset – the dining room – is an ethereal and romantic haven with white lace billowing from the ceiling, white leather banquettes and blood red accents. Together they reflect the perceived duality of life, the dark and the light. Naya is exotic, sexy, transporting -- new, indeed.

Naya Sunset reviews from OpenTable diners

    Dined on 2/14/2013
    My girlfriend and I walked into Naya one night after having had dinner elsewhere. We were impressed with the romantic decor and feel of the place. Since then, my girlfriend mentioned the place numerous times, so I made reservations for a surprise Valentine's Day dinner. After fighting traffic, and just a few miles away from Naya, they called to say they had to cancel my reservation because the restaurant wasn't going to open that night. NOT open on Valentine's Day?!?!? Who does that?What made it worse was getting the call only 30 minutes before the reservation. Not only had we wasted time in L.A. traffic, but good luck trying to get reservations anywhere else when it's already 5:30pm!

    Way too expensive for Indian food. Our bill for seven people came out to $485 dollars. The indian food is not authentic and extremly small portions. Be aware this isn't worth your money the place is completed dead for a saturday night. Group on deal is a catch just to get you in they charge you for every little thing and its not cheap.....

    The restauarnt didn't have a host when we arrived to seat us, and we subsequently learned that they were having a special event in the main dining room that we not advised about when we were seated. Not sure if that was the reason why, but the service was terrible, and the servers seemed clueless about who amongst regular patrons had ordered what food and drink. No apolgies were forth coming for a bad experience. Obviously, the place is poorly managed, and satff not properly trained. Lastly, the specially priced meal for 2 didn't make sense price-wise, because the food would have been less if ordered al a carte. We had purchased a coupon from Livingsocial, so we paid less than the special menu price, but someone wasn't paying attention.

    The food was good. In many ways better than what I rated. However, my impression was hampered by some epic poor service. It wasn't even busy but the staff seemed to have no idea how to run a room. It took us 10 minutes to order a drink upon sitting down an another 20 minutes before we got it. 40 more to get out food and god forbid anyone checked on us in between. I virtually never come off a 18-20% tip and this night I considered sending a message with no tip at all. I did end up leaving about 8% for the mere fact they occasionally walked to and from my table with stuff or to carry stuff away... Epic fail. Will not be going back.

    The staff was polite and courteous but half of the staff seem like they were lost and unsure what to do at times. The service was extremely slow and we had to wait a very long time for our food to arrive. It took over 2 hours to complete our meal. To be fair the manager did come by our table and apologize for the slow service because of the new staffing. Overall the whole experience wasn't bad except for the long wait. We did find the restaurant quite beautiful and unique. The food was also good. We think the restaurant has potential to be a better. Hopefully they will iron out the kinks. We will definitely give it another try in the near future.

    We loved the food here (especially the cheese naan!) and the prices were very good. They did, however, appear to have forgotten about our reservation. We were seated upstairs where we were kind if firgotten about for chunks of the evening. I would go back but make sure I was seated on the main floor. I would also go earlier as starting at 9pm they cleared tables and it became more of a club/bar with loud music-not our scene.

    Naya is a beautiful rose w/ a few thorns. Romantic decor in the main dining area w/ white fabric draping from the ceiling; candle lit tables w/red flowers. Patio dining area is great for groups, esp LOUD groups but bring a jacket or sit close to the fire pit; friendly staff (including valet); street parking isn't ideal, valet and save your heels; limited menu options but closer to appropriate portion sizes than most places. Wait staff is 50/50. Some are more attentive than others but we never intended to be there 3-4 hours due to the slower service. Our dessert was slightly disappointing and expensive. We were charged full price even though they decided to send it incomplete. We were told the ice cream melted affecting presentation.

    Great food. Though I would have apreciated a more pro-actively informed waiter. He may have wanted to suggest double portions for our large group. Amazing ambiance and choice of three distinct, beautiful, and individual rooms. Great service. The manager came by and introduced herself. Fireside dining. $5 happy hour and overall a wonderful experience.

    Server was pushy with his suggestions, all his recommendations were based on the price. I went here with my girlfriend, the outdoor patio where we ended up eating and the inside seating were spectacular. They had a great fire pit and offered us to smoke hookah. I wouldn't call myself a particularly avid fan of Indian food, but overall the food was okay. The experience inside the restaurant is more for what I didn't mind paying for. Drink specials were great, interesting in nature (I had a burning rosemary bush in mine). Worth a try but I don't think I will be going back.

    It was definitely strange to be the only diners in the restaurant the entire time we were there though it was on a Sunday early evening. Would definitely NOT recommend ordering a margarita as it tasted like nothing more than extremely sweet sugar water. Food however was extremely good, though this place I think is trying to be too fancy in the neighborhood it is in. Would work better in Beverly Hills, not Silverlake. Also, if we make a reservation for 6pm we would hope to be greeted by someone at the door however this was not the case. I had to hunt someone down in order to be seated. Though the food was very delicious there was nothing about the experience that would invite us back.

    Dinner started with Sasha's coconut shrimp, and it was very delicious, although for $11 we only received three medium sized shrimp. For cocktails we got Midnight Lush, and Burning Rose, both very tasty, and for our entrees we got the Chicken Tandoori, and the Vindaloo Chicken (which wasn't on our menu but we took our waiters suggestion). Both plates were good in taste, proportion and presentation. Our waiter seemed frustrated when we asked him about dishes and his suggestions (Which were coincidentally the most expensive items) and chose something else. However it was very romantic, but there were dead bugs in the hanging white lamps in the dining room. For the price and service quality probably won't return but it was decent Indian food.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 4/13/2012
    Naya (the name means 'new' in Hindi) is one of Silverlake's hottest additions and a godsend for lovers of modern Indian and fusion cuisine. The bar has an understated coolness to it- exposed brickwork and subtle Asian aesthetics in the lounge, the warm glow of the bar at the far end draw you over in a 'hey! The party starts HERE' kind of way... I tried a mojito type drink made of Grape liquor that was delicious. The restaurant area was almost empty- I guess word is still not out. For the most part the food didn't disappoint- the choice of dishes and their presentation are both superb (eg sea bass with black rice), and so refreshing to see at an Indian joint. The lamb kebab starters should have been hotter.. but I will definitely go back

    This place has horrible food, the samosas soup tandoori need to be thought about again. The chicken Marsala sauce is delicious but needs more chicken. The lamb chops I will say we're delicious. Bottle service is priced fine but I was charged another 72 for gratuity when only 5 of us ordered the bottle. My party of 30 which were the only people at this place because it was dead paid separately as they came. I love the venue, and the belly dancer is amazing.
