“Very slow meal service on a very uncrowded evening”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

A friend selected this restaurant since we were all coming from different areas. Service started great with a friendly waitress and we asked several questions about the menu. We ordered the spinach artichoke dip as an appetizer which was very good served with chips. We waiting almost an hour for our entrees and when asked were told it was due to a few large parties. We didn't see any large tables and thought this was a bit odd as half the restaurant was empty. The food finally came and it was just ok - vegetarian kebab, shish kebab and specialty rice with lamb shank. We did get a complementary dessert which was a nice gesture, but over 2 and half hours for dinner was a bit much.

“not good! below average”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

A way expensive persian restaurants. Staff were not so friendly. I wish they were persian because they had no idea of persian foods and ingredients. Food is terrible specially lamb
shank. Albaloo polo made with cherry not albaloo. It seems they had no idea of how to cook these kind of traditional dishes. Chicken was tasteless! Come on! You can add lots of flavor to it,
do not just boil it with turmeric!

“Belly Dance : a Feast to the eyes ;)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

We went to Arya on a Saturday unplanned and guess what .. We got to see the belly dance. The dancer was mind boggling. She was very friendly, posed for snaps too :) Food was great in both the quality and quantity. Would definitely recommend this.. Worth the price. However, rest room could be more little more neat.

“Awesome Persian Cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

Went with Persian friends in February on a Saturday night. On weekends they have an accomplished belly dancer and live entertainment. Very family friendly and all ethinicities welcome. Food was excellent. Wait staff was very attentive. Portions are HUGE! If you like Persion food you'll love this place.If this is your first time I recommend the ground beef and/or chicken kabobs as an introduction. We had reservations which was good as the place was packed. If you are looking for a quiet dinner this isn't it, this is a festive atmosphere and at times bordered on being loud, but you'll have a good meal and a good time.

“Great Kabobs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

A nice find. It's on the main street but parking is in back so it looks empty. Excellent persian food with great spice taste. The ground chicken was very well done and the kabobs were excellent. The waitress was very friendly and helpful in providing suggestions. The food is a little dry with the just the rice but try the mint chutney. it's very spicy. Lunch menus are reasonable. They do offer music on weekend nights and I think it's worth another visit.
