The chicken shawarma and mixed grill trays were delicious. The fattoush was also well made with fresh ingredients. The Fried kibbeh balls were small but generously stuffed. I particularly loved the Jellab drink with pines and pistachios. My friend and I are Lebanese and we appreciated a nice evening. The staff was fun, warm and welcoming especially Jorge. All the best.

The waitstaff are lovely, the food is excellent, the wine list is exciting, and the value is great. On a weeknight, it's also usually quite low in terms of noise, and the booths are all partitioned.

Everything my date and I ordered was absolutely fantastic and the wait staff was extremely friendly. My phone died and they offered to charge it with a smile, and they were angels with the takeaway containers. Smiling all the time, wonderful caring service, unbelievably cool space, delicious food. Will be coming back again multiple times.

We shared a bunch of small plates and two entrees. Service was good. We had a later reservation (8:15) and the kitchen closed at 9:30. Our waiter made sure we got our full order in. They definitely close earlier than many restaurants so we felt like we had to eat it and beat it. We will return but next time with an earlier reservation. Totally recommend it!

We arrived at 9:05 and we were told that the kitchen closes at 9:20 and the restaurant closes at 10 pm. We had to rush through the whole dinner experience.... Bad experience..

Spicy hummus, labneh, fattoush, cheeses, all good. Chicken shawarma roll excellent, needed more spice, and would have liked plate option since pita came with everything else. Very enjoyable and will return and recommend.

It's a shame b/c the food & ambiance are great. It's a VERY narrow venue, so we missed seeing it on our first walk past, but the interior was quiet & each table was separated by a partition.

Having lived in Beirut for a year, I can appreciate the subtlety of what makes Naya’s cuisine delicious. The spiced hummus is even better than mine. I think it’s the best hummus I have ever had. The pita bread, the taboulé, the lamb/beef sausages, etc were all excellent. The desserts were home made and equally up to par. Enjoy!!!

They were diligently checking our vaccine proof and ID's, which was comforting. The tables have plexiglass partitions between then, which was also comforting. The service was prompt and friendly. The waiter let me taste my wine request before I ordered it - much appreciated. We were 3, and we ordered a Mezze assortment to share. It was all really wonderful. For us specifically, great vegetarian options. We will definitely come back!

The waiter never took our orders for entrees; so we had to wait over an hour for the entrees to arrive for a party of four. Although the hummus, baba ghanoush, and hammouli were very delicious, the entrees fell short of expectation.
