Experience the elegance of the Old World at Arya Global Cuisine in the town of Cupertino on Stevens Creek Blvd. The philosophy of Arya is a blend of Italian and Middle Eastern cuisines. On the Persian side of the menu, guests can choose from dishes that elicit the contrast of flavors that set Persian cuisine apart from other Middle Eastern plates. Arya uses exotic spices like saffron, dried fruits and nuts to create traditional Persian flavor combinations that will excite and surprise guests. The Pomegranate Pistachio Meatballs are a perfect example of the contrast between sweet and savory. Kebab plates can be ordered in chicken, beef, lamb, and seafood, all of which come with airy basmati and saffron rice and a charred tomato. While the menu is mainly Persian, Italian favorites like Osso Bucco and Cioppino are alternative options for guests. On Fridays and Saturdays, patrons are treated to a scintillating belly dancing show or a jazzy Italian-inspired performance in Arya’s large dining area. After dining at Arya once, guests will leave with a love for this marriage of two great cultures and cuisines.
