Everything was great from the start. Our waiter went out of his way to bring me tasting of a flavored rice dish without me asking for it. The presentation of everything we ordered was really nice. Lots of good food. Desserts were delicious.

We came here for my birthday dinner, but there were a couple of other large parties. There was a wedding that literally took over the restaurant, dance floor, hallways, everywhere. If they wanted to have their wedding at this place, they should have booked it and paid for it. But instead, we all had to pay for it. It's great and fun that the band played wedding music the last half of the night but it would have been nice to have some current dance music played for the rest of us. We didn't know that half of OUR night would be devoted to their special night - really, truly the restaurant should warn diners that there's a wedding happening when we make reservations. It's not fair to the rest of us who have something to celebrate, too.

It was really uncomfortable, to the point that my guests were all confused and complaining. Imagine going to a birthday dinner and ending up in the middle of a stranger's wedding?? We got knocked around the dance floor by the wedding party who felt it was theirs. I feel cheated out of a birthday celebration. If I was more petty, I would ask for a partial refund - and I'd deserve it.

Our table was extremely crowded and uncomfortable. They packed our large table right next to another large table which was RIGHT next to the wedding party. Not a good customer experience. The food was also not good that night - kabobs were all overcooked and chewy. Appetizers were very good, but there was NO dessert at all. No tea, no coffee, no nothing after dinner. Service just sort of ended. They didn't tell us it was a fixed menu ahead of time so I ended up paying over $600 for an experience that absolutely should have been half that price.

Service attentive and accommodating, but food only average. Chicken kabobs were overcooked and dry and served with large amount of rice. At least 4 items on their wine/beer menu were not available. Quiet for conversation only because restaurant was fairly empty on a Sunday night. I would not return.

Firstly, the air conditioning was turned up high and our table was under a vent so we were all very cold. The service was slow and the server was never around when needed. I ordered a chicken kebab and the chicken was rubbery. I couldn't send it back because we couldn't find the server. At the end of the meal a manager came by and I told him about the chicken. He did take it off the bill.
While we were eating they seated a party of about 20 people next to us. The younger children were put at their own table near us and proceeded to talk loudly, sing and run around with no supervision from the adults.
All I wanted was a nice quiet meal with my family for Father's Day and unfortunately it didn't meet my expectations.

There was a group of 12 of us to celebrate my husband's and his twin brother's birthday.
The food was fantastic as usual, Service was great, and we had so much fun dancing to their live music. It was a memorable night for all of us. I would definitely recommend Arya Global Cuisine to anyone who's looking for great food and service.

Went here for Mother's Day dinner. It wasn't busy. There were plenty of staff on hand. They couldn't get my wife's order right. We ordered 3 times. It felt like they were just bringing out whatever they had in the kitchen in true bazaari style. By the time my wife got the right dish, she had lost her appetite. The experience was bad. Won't be going back.

We dine at Arya often. Food is excellent here as we love the option of being able to eat both vegetarian and meat dishes.

We really enjoy starting with the vege meze platter along with the cucumber/mint yoghurt.

We had the pleasure of meeting their newest GM Cassandra at Cupertino site. She stopped by as we had a slight mixup of my dish. She was attentive, friendly, personable and professional.

We got stuck with a Persian New Years bill for buffet and entertainment. $600 bill for buffet for 4 adults and 3’kids with 1 cocktail and 1 bottle of wine. It was a rip off!! . Did not call and let me know it was only buffet style until 1 day before reservation. Will try another Persian restaurant next time.

First time here; greeted at the door by young lady...very pleasant, smiling, welcoming. Calamari appetizer came recommended...very light; must order again. Yogurt with mint/diced cucumbers accompanied with bread...very good. Had salmon for my lady; seafood platter for me; both very tasty and sizeable portion. Also had a pre-dinner cocktail. Service was fast; hostess was pleasant/friendly. She suggested a few options which were appreciated...soup for example...very good. Will go back and see about dining during evening entertainment. Positive visit and a keeper. Yes, will bring friends here.

We went there for early evening dinner with my two young boys and my husband. As soon as we sat down we ordered for the kids right away. They have a kids menu but essentially it’s just chicken with rice or beef with rice and then a pasta spaghetti dish. So we ended up ordering one chicken and one beef with rice dish. Then we ordered for salads appetizers in the main course. However what ended up happening is they forgot the kids dish and they were super hungry so they ended up eating our food and their plates came out after they had already finished. Waitress said they forgot to make the food!!’

Overall food tasted good but definitely not worth over $20 per dish. They have different rice dishes like dill rice with lentils and rice with cranberries and plain yellow rice which all were good. The cranberry rice was a a bit too tart and sweet for me personally.

They supposedly have belly dancers and live band after 8:30pm. I’m not sure if I would come back but I think for take out would be fine.

Horrible experience.
We have been to their Redwood City location multiple times and have enjoyed the experience every time. This was our first visit to the Cupertino location and possibly the last.
- we were one of two families at the restaurant and it was difficult to get the wait staff's attention. The entire staff seemed busy focusing on a wedding reception.
- bread was right out of the refrigerator. Our appetizer arrived with the main order and the bread arrived shortly thereafter.
- we complained about the bread to the waiter who dismissed our comments and attributed it to the incompetent kitchen crew.
- the manager overheard our complaint and stopped by to inquire. At that point the waiter and someone from the kitchen both started defending their respective positions.
Overall, the experience was less than satisfactory. We'll probably not return to this location.
