We arrived at 6pm on Saturday, October 19.... it looked closed. The outside of the building is not well cared for (needs painting, living bushes, etc.). Once inside, we noted the place was COMPLETELY empty, save for 1 lady furiously writing something on a piece of paper. Was she our waitress, owner, what? She didn't introduce herself, nor did the man who escorted us to our table near the bar. He was in poorly fitting clothes and old sneakers. He knew nothing about the menu. We are from NYC and have had cuisine from many cultures. This food was poorly seasoned, overpriced, and took a long time to arrive. At least I can say the interior of the restaurant was clean (probably because there were no customers). Come on, diet coke arrives in cans??!!

The food here is FANTASTIC - cooked with pride and love. The lamb is succulent, the felafel is unique and delicious. The owners put their heart and soul into the meal and you can taste it. The location is a little off the beaten path, but worth finding if you are in the area. Healthy, fresh, authentic Lebanese cuisine served to you by the loving hands that prepared it. They treat each customer like family and feed you as such!

The management of the restuarant can improve the the outcome of their business by following the basic maraketing approach by: 1- Good Qaulity of food, 2-Value of their manu, 3- easy access to the restuarant(signs etc), 4-market and advertise their eatery, and finally5- Service, Service, Service. Wishing them the best success!

Maraya is a hidden gem in the middle of an area full of chains. The restaurant is beautiful and the food is great. The owners treat you like a cherished family member when you arrive.

I love the falafel sandwich at lunch along with tabouleh. For an appetizer, I recommend the hummus. Everything is made from scratch from local and natural ingredients.

The Kibbeh appetizer is amazing but the downside is that it fills you up so much that you won't have room for dinner. I love the kefta (sp?) kababs but the chicken picata is delicious too.

As you can tell, we've been to the restaurant quite a few times after discovering it!

This is a hidden family operated gem. People who do not know Lebanese food seem to be commenting and giving misinformation. This is a freshly prepared home-cooked meal, it is a little pricey because this isnt a food court by any means. The food is out of this world, healthy and fresh. It is authentic as it comes and all my Lebanese friends that I have sent here, agree this is the best restaurant they've been to in Orlando in terms of taste. The service was also great and this is a charming little restaurant. Do not be fooled by those that don't know middle eastern food, this is far superior to anything in the region. I lived in Detroit, I know middle eastern food.
