Arya Persian Restaurant

Long before I fell in love with Japanese food, I was crazy about Persian food. But honestly, looking for a decent Persian restaurant seemed difficult for me because some places I have tried before either changed the quality of their food or has closed down. I was glad Mr. B brought me to Arya, the place he claims to serve authentic Persian food. 

I love the interiors of the place, and they play Persian music in the background (I couldn't stop Mr. B from singing, haha). There are also tables outside for guests who want to get shisha. 

For starters, we ordered Arya Salad (Php 183, solo).

I love how generous the walnuts are in this salad. Even the solo serving is good enough for two. 

I also had a Plain Yogurt Smoothie, which tasted a lot better than usual yogurt smoothies I have in other places.

For kabab, we shared a plate of Makhsus Beef (Php 392), served with Basmati Rice (add Php 20).

Of course, garlic sauce and chili sauce wouldn't be missing. 

However, Mr. B explained that it's only here that he encountered mixing garlic sauce in kabab because kabab is supposedly eaten without any sauce. The kabab is tender and flavorful enough, actually, but I just can't help adding garlic sauce on it. Love it!

I was amazed that Arya really delivers delicious authentic Persian food. The service was excellent during our visit, though the prices are a bit more expensive than other Persian restaurants I've been to. Still, I will go back to this resto for my Persian food cravings.

Other locations are Robinson's Magnolia, Robinson's Place Manila, The Podium and Shangrila East Wing


  1. I think I have eaten there just once. I already forgot what we ordered. I think it's about time to visit it again. I miss Persian food.


  2. I haven't tried Arya, but I've been seeing it at Shangri-la Plaza! Will definitely try it soon. Prices seem pretty reasonable for the serving size, quality and authenticity. :) Btw, haven't read your other posts, but it sees you've been enjoying dates with Mr. B! Yihee! <3

    1. I always pass by their Podium branch before but it's the first time that I've visited it. :)

  3. Haven't tried this place yet and to think I have always passed by this place. Maybe it's time to give it a try. =)

  4. I'm so used to fastfood kebab that I wonder how different it is with the authentic ones. I think I found my answer here. I love the blue and red ceiling decors btw :)

  5. I remember Arya in Greenhills is the first Arya resto I've ever been to. Medyo dark lang ang ambiance. Hehe.

  6. I didn't know that the kebabs should be eaten on their own, but I think I'm a self-confessed sauce person. I'm glad you were able to try Arya! :D

  7. No, I didn't. I'm not a smoker kasi.
