Israeli
Shaya restaurant marries Israeli staples with Southern flavors and modern techniques, striking a balance between innovation and tradition. Shaya approaches Israeli cuisine as a grand mosaic, drawing influence and inspiration from North Africa, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, Turkey and Greece. The contemporary menu reflects the ongoing evolution of Israeli food and celebrates the abundance of Louisiana. Shaya highlights seasonal, responsibly- and locally-sourced ingredients.

The wood-fire oven is central to both the menu and the dining experience, from the incredible homemade, wood-fired pita to vegetable-centric small plates and heartier entrees. Many of the dishes on the diverse menu are meant to be shared and enjoyed throughout many courses.

    Overall a nice experience. The pita and hummus are always fantastic! Was there for lunch, I got the salmon, and while it was cooked perfectly, it lacked salt and/or seasoning.

    We had lunch with friends at Shaya on a Saturday and ordered all of the vegetarian small plates, two kinds of hummus, and the Babka. Each bite was delicious, flavorful, and enjoyable! We also got the Jerusalem Salad which was delightfully tasty! Highly recommended

    Visiting from California and our friends told us Shaya was the best meal they had in Nola, so naturally we had to come. I’d watched the episode of Phil Rosenthal dining as well, so there were a few things on my list to try. When we saw the menu, I realized they weren’t on it, but I can tell you what we did order was some of the best food we've had in a long time. Mousaka, Baba Ganoush, cauliflower hummus, Israeli salad and the lamb (with the best tabouli). Excellent flavors, incredibly fresh. We were warned by our friends to not fill up on the bread. we didnt follow directions :). how could we not keep eating the wonderful fresh warm pita they were bringing. it was a great experience, we were even chatting with the table next to us as our dishes came out admiring each others choices. Thank you for an incredible meal and making our tummies and taste buds happy. We may have to come back again before we leave.

    The lamb hummus and the mushroom hummus with the fresh out of the oven pitas were so good my husband decided we had to open this restaurant back home. We tried the chicken sandwich, the salmon and the shrimp kebab. It was all amazing. Out of all the restaurants we tried this week hands down the best.

    The food we had was delicious! The tables are very close together. We ended up having to cancel our entrees due to how long they took to come out. The staff handled it great though and comped our drinks. We will definitely go back!
