The food was just fantastic
Delicious and unique flavors!
Absolutely loved everything about it! The food was amazing, the rose was delicious and the ambiance was perfect!
Food was delicious. Definitely recommend the lamb ragu hummus, ikra & lima bean spreads. Even the pita bread was amazing! And most certainly have to thank our waiter for such an outstanding service.
Amazing! If you gave up carbs, make an exception! Pita perfect!!!
We had a wonderful first experience at Shaya, highly recommend, we look forward to a return visit!!
Fantastic service and food.
All the dishes we had were great. They have the best pita bread I’ve had in the US, and the cauliflower hummus was fantastic. The hangar steak was delicious too. The waiter was great and we had a very enjoyable experience!
I’ve eaten here before and it was stellar. This visit was disappointing as we had to ask the server for everything from: Can we order? Get drink refills? The check? A pen to sign the check? Can I please have my credit card back?
The food was good but also not as great as it had been on past visits. The lamb ragu was over cooked. The cauliflower was beyond the usual char. If this would have been my first visit, I doubt that I would return. It was embarrassing to take a client out and speak so highly of a restaurant and then be so disappointed.
Some of the best lamb I’ve ever had!! Everything was fabulous, service was good, and really friendly service.
Absolutely loved our dinner at Shaya--the hummus dishes, fresh pita bread, and lamb shank all made for a very memorable evening. Service was top notch!
Delicious! Fried Chicken Hummus was a favorite and the bread was sooo good!
Service was excellent and we really enjoyed happy hour!
The absolute BEST meal I had in NOLA!
Shaya has amazing food. The ambiance is relaxing and the staff is friendly. Nothing to complain about - just go! The restaurant is on Magazine street and it’s also fun to walk around before/after the meal. The best teas I’ve had, the best salad, and certainly the best freshly made bread.
One of the best meals I have ever had - I travelled from Houston just to try it, and I would recommend to any of my friends
Great experience. Very friendly staff.
Visited for birthday and food was fantastic!
Everyone agreed that the food gets better with each visit!
Love the place. The pitas are best anywhere. Love all the appitizer dips.
Great food and service. Wonderful atmosphere. We look forward to going back.
Fantastic dining experience!
We asked fir drink suggestions and all of us felt he directed us toward the perfect cocktail. We shared several hummus appetizers, flank steak, sea bass, and tuna entrees, and the cheesecake & babka desserts—all were delicious flavor combinations and presented beautifully. Can’t wait to return!
Delicious. Can't wait to return. Everything was outstanding!
Everything was wonderful from the service to the food to the prep of the food to go. My daughter had a nice date lunch and will be back.
An amazing dining experience! My husband can’t stop talking about how much he enjoyed his meal. Best pita ever :)
incredible food and atmosphere! the pita is unmatched and freshly baked right from a wood fired oven. the waiters are attentive and helpful! the environment in bright and airy, too.
This meal was the highlight to our stay in NOLA. We will be back on our next visit. Outstanding meal and service.
The food was very good! Everything is meant to be shared, so dine with people you are comfortable.
Cocktails were very good! We had the whole roasted cauliflower, Lima beans, moussaka, pickles, and tahini hummus. So yummy! Very filling.
Great middle eastern food. Excellent vegetarian options. Ooh! And great cocktails too!
Food was excellent!
Easter and daughter leaving for Los Angeles
Food amazing, service so so...she didn’t really engage with us & I felt like she was rushed. Wouldn’t get cocktails again - too sweet & lacked the craft of most cocktails in NOLA
Hummus and fried chicken is great, falafel was crisp and green, drinks were on point.
In town for a lil vacation, we heard about shaya from the show somebody feed Phil, it truly didn’t disappoint. We came on Monday as our celebration meal and we loved it so we came back on Friday. Every time I’m in town that will definitely be my stop!!!
Vacation dining at Shaya! Was a wonderful meal. The fried chicken hummus is so good! Everything we ate here is awesome.
We have visited Shaya twice, both times when visiting Tulane. We loved it so much on our first trip that we made a point to go back on our next, even though we had plenty of new options to try. Fresh, delicious, flavorful. Best hummus and fresh, hot pita!
Fantastic as always. The flavors were amazing and the service was great.
Great food with so many vegetarian options. Pita bread was amazing! Will be going back!
