My wife and I went for a pre-movie dinner on a Thursday. It was our first time eating at Naya, and we came because of very good online reviews. We very much enjoyed our meal, and after one visit, this will now be our go-to choice for Middle Eastern (mostly Syrian) food in Pittsburgh. The place is fairly small and... More

Joined high school friends for a post-50th reunion dinner - and understand why this is one of their favorite places to dine! Delicious baba ghanouj, light thin pita, and an assortment of grilled salads (salad plate with nuts, feta and choice of kebab) just perfect after too much catered food. Of course I made up for it by having their... More

Atmosphere authentic. Could have been a little cleaner. Waiter was great. I think this was a bit above average. The pricing was reasonable.

What a great little place! We went for a late lunch/early dinner and the owner was our waiter. (He explained that the regular dinner waiter did not arrive for another 20 minutes.) Naya is attractive and very clean. The menu is varied, with explanations for most dishes. The owner is very kind and helpful. We began our meal with an... More

I love this place. The owner is lovely and so helpful if you need assistance in selecting a dish. I've been here twice and both times, the food was excellent. It's conveniently located on Murray Avenue in Squirrel Hill. The cafe has ample seating and feels really cozy. If you're craving delicious Middle Eastern food, Naya is the place to... More

We six diners were enthusiastic to eat some real middle eastern cuisine, which seems to be limited in the burgh area. Early on a Friday evening we walked into the modest, but friendly atmosphere of Naya. Our reservation was for 6:00, but the place did not become crowded until we were on our way out. Warning: Order the small mezza... More

Naya Cuisine is worth a try if you enjoy Middle Eastern cuisine or just like to try new things. The owner is very friendly, and prepares delicious entrees. I had the chicken shawarma sandwich, which came with fries, as well as the hummus, which is served with warm pita bread. The restaurant is small, but accepts reservations, and the intimate... More

While the menu sounded appealing for a vegetarian such as myself, the food, which I had expected to be spicy and flavorful, was surprisingly flat tasting. Nonetheless, the staff was friendly, and the atmosphere relaxed. They did say it was a new menu, so maybe in a while they will have worked out the kinks and I'll try it again.

If you are a fan of Middle Eastern cuisine this is THE BEST. The babba gounush is excellent as is the hummus. My husband and I have been here several times and tried different lamb, fish and other entrees and were never disappointed. If you have never tried Middle Eastern cuisine before you will turn into a fan no doubt... More
