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