I made a reservation with opentable for indoor seating. Yet they made me seat outdoors. Upon request to seat indoor they tell me that indoor all tables are reserved. When I tell them that I did reserved for indoor the manager gives me long speech and tells that I need to add special notes while reserving that I need indoor table. He was trying to explain me how opentable app works. This was pretty embarrassing.

Food: Late Late Late ... we ordered a salad and kabob combo. It took them 1.15 hr to service the food. Chicken kabob was tastelesss and chewy. Not sure on the freshness of meet.

Drink: would not recommend taking cocktails. We had mai tai , long island razzberitinni.. I had better cocktails with cbeaper price.

Summary : Not recoomended for date.

Good middle eastern food. We used the buffet due to time, and it was good. Best about it was how quiet it was, and the service was good.

I have been to Arya several times for lunch and the food has been great.
We went for dinner for the first time and the quality & taste of the food was unsatisfactory for all 4 dishes we ordered.

We attended on a Saturday evening for food and a show with out of town company and was extremely disappointed. We've been to this restaurant many times over the last several years and was happy with everything, but never been for the Saturday show. We will not be attending the Saturday show again. The web site should indicate that there is a special menu for the Saturday evening. We looked at the website and our out of town company was excited about ordering steak. Steak was not part of the Saturday only menu.
The view of the belly dancer did not exist for most of the restaurant. Only if you were at a table right next to the floor stage. She should of been on an elevated stage.
Our waiter was terrible and we informed the management of that, then got our checks thrown on the table!

Great food and drinks. The waiter was awesome. The person who brought the chutney said he'll bring the bread to go with the chutney but never showed up again. Someone else handled the bread. Grilled food with just plain rice is a little dry. Could use some tzatziki/yogurt type of sauces to go on the side.

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.
