“Disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

We had high hopes for this Mediterranean restaurant that recently opened in the space formerly occupied by Cask 63 and Bloom. Sorry to say we were disappointed. Our hummus, baba ghanouj and falafel appetizers weren't bad. Shish taouk(chicken shish kebabs) main courses
were bland. The house made baklava was the highlight of our meal. Great service can make up for an average meal. Unfortunately, we watched our waiter checking back with other tables throughout the course of dinner, but never with us. We'll continue to frequent Eden's Grill
for its tasty and abundant Mediterranean fare and warm service, but won't return to Naya.

“Delicious Mediterranean in the desert.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

We are SO happy that Naya has just opened. Four of us went a few nights ago and all had a wonderful dinner and experience. We had visited Lebanon last year and were amazed at how delicious the food was so had to try Naya. My wife and I started with the wonderful Kebbeh which is fried spiced beef with onions, pine nuts and spices and not at all greasy and Tabbouleh which is chopped parsley with various other ingredients and the best salad you will ever taste. We both had Shish Taouk which is grilled spiced chicken on a skewer and on a bed of the tastiest rice imaginable but the piéce d'resistance is the dipping pot of garlic yoghurt. You'll ask for seconds. Our friends split the mixed grill of beef and chicken and also loved it.

The decor is very nice with a very nice bar area also. Our waiter. Abraham, was attentive and excellent. We will be regulars.
