  • The garlic whip is SO good, but be prepared for major garlic breath.
  • Avoid the rush for lunch by getting in before 12pm. Also have their chicken bowl or Kafta bowl. Their orange and green sauce are a must drizzle on your bowl or sandwich. Fresh, tasty and reasonable...
  • Amazing watermelon juice, love it!!!!
  • Falafel Salad, the garlic sauce and red & green hot sauces
  • If you love spice, add extra Jalapeos plus green sauce to your order! Fresh and quick! Love this place.
  • Naya has taken the Chipotle assembly line concept, serving a limited number of delcious mediterranean items in a "to-go" fashion. My fave is the chicken shish taouk roll. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu)
  • Get crazy and order both the red and green sauces.
  • get a salad w half chicken schwarma and half falafel, hummus, red spicy sauce and veggies, YUM.
  • Chicken Shwarma, falafel, green sauce, red sauce, everything is delicious! And the grape leaves are the best!
  • Basically the middle eastern answer to Chipotle. Wrap, bowl or salad with plenty of sauces and toppings to choose from
  • Gotta be there by noon...else long line
  • If you need a middle eastern fix Naya Express has awesome rice bowls...
  • The lunch rush line is insane. Stick to pick-up
  • Great lebaneses food
  • Lebanese food, Chipotle style. This is a wonderful place for gluten free vegetarians!!
  • Not my taste of food. The line wrapped around the side of the street during lunch hours. Friendly staff and clean
  • Line moves super fast. Almost as fast as I devoured the beef shawarma roll.
  • Wow. The beef shawarma wrap on whole wheat is so damn good. Got mine with red sauce, jalapeos and other stuff. So fresh and delicious!
  • Don't forget the tahini!! The line moves so quickly that they sometimes forget to ask if you want it.
  • Don't stay - it's freezing cold in the sitting area. Grab your food and head back to the office.
