Outside.

Arya is a Persian restaurant.  Budding chain, currently 4 locations in Manila, including 2 in Robinsons Place, 1 inside, 1 outside.

Empty, as usual, whenever I’m there.
The Wall of Fame.

Extensive menu offers a wide range of dishes from the Middle East and South Asia, from salads and sandwiches, to curries and kebabs – not sure if the wideness of the range is such a good thing.

The food was mediocre.  The shishlik, unlike other shash/shish that I’ve encountered, wasn’t skewered but grilled on the bone.  The meat was lightly/sweetly marinated.  Accompanied by roasted/blackened tomatoes.  Nothing to rave about, certainly not award-worthy.  The other dishes that we ordered weren’t much better.

Shirazi Salad (1.0): waaaaaay too salty.
