“top notch hummus”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

If you are looking for a quick bite around Grand Central -- definitely recommended. It takes about 5 minutes to walk from the info booth in Grand Central (walking east to 3rd Ave). This is a place we will visit often. Whether you live in NY or here for a visit, Naya is a must stop.

“Food was incredible”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

Not too busy around lunch time. No matter. I was here with a friend from Lebanon, so he was our judge. Modern ambiance.

Kibbe, eggplant duo, some beans with garlic in the mini mezes, all good. The eggplant in particular was super. The chicken shish taouk came out and it was delicious Highly recommend

“Great hostess, food and service”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Dinner a few nights ago on a busy NYC day. Things started right when the highly skilled and knowledgeable hostess actually saw us walk past the obscurely marked entrance. She recognized us from our reservation and rescued us from oblivion on 2nd Ave. She directed us to excellent seats that fit our preferences and introduced our server, a very personable Lebanese man who expertly guided us to a superb tasting menu of mezze, or Lebanese tapas as my Spanish fiancee likes to think of it. The mezze we sampled in this fairly small, narrow but very attractive space was delicious, varied and reasonably priced. We had a mix of meat, cheese and vegetarian dishes, but even a vegan could eat well here. Not only our waiter but the owner also gave us personal friendly attention, and the hostess checked back regularly with just the right touch to make us feel part of the family and to make sure everything was excellent. It was.

“Great Experience- Food and Atmosphere”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

A family-friendly staff made this a fun meal for us and our two grandchildren. The Mediterranean food is excellent and the waitress and cook made sure we ordered the best choices for the kids. We had Kafta Kebab and Beef Kebab, and Chicken Shish Taouk, all delicious. The restaurant is unique in its design, very modern - the room is tiny but you don't feel squished. We all loved it.
Because it is a tiny place, I wouldn't take a whole gang of people here.
