    Super casual with a vibrant take out business. BYOB and enjoy very authentic and well executed Mediterranean/Syrian cuisine. Best dolmades/stuffed grape leaves that we ever had.

    Really delicious dinner. Everything is home-made and served in generous portions. We had the small mezze platter, which was more than enough for 3 of us. Lamb shanks and lamb chops were both excellent. BYOB without corkage charge. Staff is very gracious. This was our second time and we will return.

    We ate here just by fluke- the restaurant we planned to eat at in nearby Homestead wasn't taking walk-ins so we were scrambling to find a restaurant without a 1 hour wait. When we approached the door we were apprehensive because the place didn't look that fancy and it was almost empty but we decided to give it a try. We were so glad we did! The service was excellent, our servers told us the ingredients in some dishes we asked about and everything was delicious. We had the hummus and the falafels for an appetizer, and we had the Syrian lamb shank and the chicken kebab for dinner. The lamb was outstanding, tender with a variety of dried fruits in the sauce. We finished off the meal with a slice of Syrian cheesecake, which was unlike anything we have ever eaten but was delicious with the taste of rose water, orange blossom and pistachio. The only negative I can say is this place *looks* more like a lunch place- could use some lower lighting and perhaps white tablecloths for the evening service.

    The food was very fresh and authentic. The hummus was perfect. We also had dolma, main dish tipur and to drink, hot mint tea. It was wondeful! Syrian food has so much taste and spices were not hot but, very balanced. The service was excellent. This is my favorite restaurant in Pittsburgh.

    The folks at Naya were very welcoming to our party of 16, which included 4 teenagers and 4 children. Adham and his colleague welcomed us warmly and were attentive to us throughout our visit. The food was all excellent. I highly recommend the dawood basha. I look forward to returning on our next visit to Pittsburgh.

    Went to this restaurant for a family meal while visiting Pittsburgh. The large Mezza platter was delicious and definitely big enough for 4 people to share. Sambousek pastries were also delicious. 3 of us got lamb shanks for entrees. The meat was a little tough, definitely tougher than I expected in a slow cooked lamb shank. I think next time I would try something different on the menu.

    I've been looking for this good a Middle Eastern restaurant for a long time. My all-time favorite was Skewers in Washington, DC. I've finally found one in Pittsburgh I like almost as much, and that is Naya. Very enjoyable. Delicious food and nice service.

    Everything was delicious at this family-run Syrian restaurant. We shared the mezze platter, which was very good. The dips tasted home-made. For the main dish, both lamb shank dishes are excellent, as are the kebabs. And you can byob.
