My husband and I went for our Anniversary and enjoyed our whole experience. Great service, strong drinks, amazing fresh food. Highly recommend the Tropical guacamole- with pineapple and mango- true to its name, but spicy too. And the Rainbow salad is sooooooo yummy and colorful! Would eat that every day.... Not to be missed and very reasonable too.

My husband had Barramundi (spelling?) fish which he loved and I had the stir fry flank steak with habanero sauce and coconut milk....fantastic! Our waiter, Chaz, was a... More

She was so amazing with catering to our large group. Even with a large group our food came out quickly and was very good! I... More

We had not been to Kaya in years, but quality of food has stayed excellent. We love that our whole family (carnivores and vegan) can find something delicious. It's a cool spot and we had great service. Vegan: I loved the green curry with tofu- it was delicious!

Ate here with the family everything we tried was good right down to the sorbet, bread pudding desserts. Service was good but a little slow but would definitely go back. It was our first time there but won't be the last.

Great Sunday evening dinner with my wife and in-laws. The oxtail special was excellent as was the steak stir fry my father in-law let me try. The salmon my mother in-law ordered was a little under in the middle but she said her meal was excellent otherwise. Service was great as well. Desert took so long to come out the... More

The waitress was attentive and helpful. I had the Avocado Tempura Ban Mhi Tacos. The ingredients were all fresh, the avocado perfectly fried with a nice spiciness and lots of flavor. The side salad was generous, really fresh with an imaginatively flavored lime dressing. If this is any indication of the quality of the rest of the menu I'm eager... More

We had a birthday dinner on a Friday night. The restaurant had called to check on our Open Table reservation and when we talked I asked whether they had a dessert we could stick a candle in. I could hear the smile as he described a chocolate lava cake with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and would we just... More
