You better know what you are looking for when you decide to eat here, but man is it worth it. A very quaint establishment with only 9 or 10 tables. The employees are great and the food is so fresh and so tasty. Two thumbs up from this guy.

Great local experience! Hot Spice soup rocked, fried potstickers melted in your mouth and the Black Pepper Steak and Tangerine Chicken was killer. Oliver'S service was 2nd to none!!! Take the time to go local!

There are not many Asaian cuisine offerings in Indianapolis that truly impress me. We finally got to Naisa and wish we would have tried it sooner. So I don't repeat it through the review, the food was so fresh it was amazing. To ofter Asian food tastes like is has been cooked in batches and sat in warmers, but every... More

My wife and I ate lunch with with her daughter and (4) grandchildren. No problems getting a large table to seat us. Waiter was very friendly and service was very good. The general opinion of the group was the food was rather bland but eatable. I would say it was not one of those memorable occasions where the restaurant will... More

I was spending the late afternoon in Indy, looking at houses with my wife and before going looked around for a good place for dinner: interesting, different and not costing an arm and a leg. Naisa promised to fit the bill and delivered. Understand, we enjoy Chinese food. But this goes beyond "your neighborhood local Chinese" by miles. The food... More

Just off Fountain square, this is a gem. Delicious food, trendy decor, speedy service. We had egg rolls, sesame chicken and chicken/veggies. All great! They warn you that the mustard is hot...they are right, but it's decilious too! Sticky white rice is some of the best I've had in Indy. Enough food that we took home for dinner the next... More

We are frequent visitors to NAISA, particularly when our daughter and her family are visiting with us from San Francisco. We've lived in various cities in our lifetime and the Asian restaurants we've visited have often been a disappointment to them, keeping in mind that they have dozens more Asian restaurants to choose from so the odds are greater that...

Nice small place near Fountain square. Good Chinese, very good for Indy actually. Rice paper spring rolls are good. Food is not too oily, well prepared. Worth getting a side of chili sauce if you like it hot!

Let me say the one bad thing about Naisa right off the bat. This place can be hard to find. The outside of the building is very nondescript. Virginia Ave is a street that is at an angle and the OPEN sign for Naisa is also at an angle. You can easily drive by and not see the name or... More
