Menu seems to continue changing, so I asked our server. She told us there have been changes in some of the locations (including Peabody where we dined) in ownership and that they are not all the same anymore.
Items (once popular) have dropped from the menu and the Jasmine rice that we always enjoyed is no longer served
So......."Not Your Average" seems to be becoming "average" with not many special touches / different tastes ??

The fall sangria was really watered down and our server didn’t bring us our waters and only checked on us once.

Food was good but I ordered a burger & fries and got one tiny cup of ketchup! Had to ask over & over for more ketchup. The little cups were less than half full. At least fill them up! I think I ended up using 8-10 when 2 full ones would have done the job!

I had the salmon, it was dry and salty. The rice was undercooked, I'm not sure if that was intended or not. The broccoli was good. My husband had the fish and chips, he said it was mediocre. We ate at the bar and it was lovely. The service was top shelf. We used to frequent your Medford location, since it closed we have occasionally gone to the Watertown location as my children/grandchildren live there. We since have moved to Danvers and, realizing that prices have gone up everywhere, I did not feel that I got value for my money.

The waitress was so sweet and helpful, and the drinks were delicious! However, my sisters steak was burnt and not able to eat. She had to ask for a new meal. My friends rice was undercooked and chewy. Overall, I give this restaurant a 5/10.

Your hostess was awesome tonight. She was super helpful and considerate.
Our server was obviously swamped, but had a great attitude and was kind and apologetic. Service was still very good and we got our meals and water promptly. Everyone was helping each other and staff were all wearing masks.
Food was very yummy. Ahi salad was devoured and our server was very accommodating towards my 94 year old grandfather’s requests.
Great night.

Great service and great food at great prices.
Kat , our server, was fabulous. With a big smile she highly recommended a few favorites.
I got the tuna poke bowl which was outstanding.
My husband had the homemade meatloaf with REAL mashed potatoes, broccoli and a delicious gravy. He devoured it.

I love this restaurant and visit every week because the food is so good. This past week was exceptional. The fresh, hot bread was perfectly cooked and the pizza was amazing! Thanks to everyone there! Especially thanks to Abby, Amanda, Cat and the folks who make the bread and pizza for the most wonderful meal!!!

The food was excellent, the server was training and he was great. I do wish the incremental charge had been explained when we got the bill. While I wouldn't have changed the amount, I found out about the charge from my credit card.

I am thrilled to see NYAJ back to normal.
Everything was great!
My salmon bowl with veggies and rice was fabulous. They even made my husband a special pizza that was discontinued...white pizza with roasted mushrooms and ricotta.
Stupendous.
The best part of lunch was having Amanda with her beaming smile take care of us.
Can't wait to run back.

NYAJ's was easy to reserve and it took no time to get our family of four seated. The initial booth had one side directly exposed to the setting sun, but we were immediately moved to a nice location. Service was prompt and food delicious. I normally wouldn't look for a restuarant within a mall, but we enjoyed walking through the nearly empty, air condition, mall after dinner, and it was a surprisingly pleasant after-dinner stroll. The server was especially helpful.
