    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...

    Excellent, fairly healthy lunch option if you work in the area. Lamb kofte is fantastic. Whatever you get, make sure you top it with the spicy green sauce + tahini.

    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) Read more

    Wow. The beef shawarma wrap on whole wheat is so damn good. Got mine with red sauce, jalapeños and other stuff. So fresh and delicious!

    So delish. As many have said, the garlic whip is great, but you better be packing some breath mints. (this tip written from the insanely long line)

    Get chicken shawarma, the other variety is dry as hell. Or get the salad with the lamb, portions will be generous and suffice any appetite.

    I haven't had the Lebanese version of pizza ( manooch) in ages. Quite flavorful ground meat topping. And rekakat was heavenly for those cheese lovers!

    Should rename it FIYA Express....cuz it tastes good. Think Lebanese Chipotle. Make sure you get green hot sauce at the register

    I'm in love with the sujuk. Incredibly tasty and filling. I wish I could order something else, but I can't get over the sujuk.

    l-l-love Naya express. Great for lunch - i recommend the Chicken Shawarma wrap with hummus, jalapeno, red pickles, lettuce and tomato. Falafel is great as well!

    Don't forget the tahini!! The line moves so quickly that they sometimes forget to ask if you want it.

    Naya roll with falafal, Hummos, pickled veggies and hot sauce with tahini is awesome. Wheat wrap is light and tasty.

    Middle Eastern Chipotle. Long lines that move quickly. Lamb is a bit dry though, chicken is the way to go.

    Basically the middle eastern answer to Chipotle. Wrap, bowl or salad with plenty of sauces and toppings to choose from

    The food is great but the pitas are awful--tastes like a bad attempt at health food.

    You have to watch the male servers very carefully. They will use dirty cutting utensils if given an opportunity.
