Jaya, which means 'victory' in Sanskrit, was chosen by our team to honor of The Setai's renowned interior designer Jaya Ibrahim and the hotel's first decade of successful Asian-inspired hospitality. Jaya at The Setai boasts standout dishes from Thailand, Korea, Indian, China and Japan . Named one of Miami’s “hottest new restaurants,” Jaya incorporates many traditional culinary techniques from wok stations to tandoor ovens. Its menu features bold and modern Asian cuisine with bountiful flavors of turmeric, cardamom, ginger, cinnamon, chilies, coconut milk and tamarind; while also presenting longtime Setai favorites including Peking Duck, Naan breads, Indian curries, Tandoor sea bass and Dim Sums.

Join us for our one of Miami's best daily buffets, the Setai Grand Breakfast, which offers continental breakfast favorites; and our infamous Sunday Jazz Brunch with live music, free-flowing Roederer Champagne, carving, seafood, children's stations and more!

Incredible service. Excellent food. Awesome get away. Very expensive get away.

One piece of advice: Courtyard view not worth the upgrade unless you get a lower level floor. Otherwise your view completely bypasses the courtyard (see over it) and is of the rooms in the hotel across the way.

My flight arrived around noon and I was at the hotel by 12:20. Typically check in is 4pm. I had a room within 10 mins. Again, awesome service.

Would definitely stay again.

Gorgeous setting; great food; expensive. I'd go back for a special occasion without hesitation. Perhaps a bit pricey for casual dining. Not quite Indian food, which is what we were looking for, but the menu was interesting / good overall.

Hamachi tuna, truffle emulsion dumplings, Pho and pear dessert all absolutely outstanding. Japanese leaf was very fresh too. Pad Thai and ice cream dishes left something to be desired.

I love everything about brunch at Jaya! I have been here numerous times and will continue to come back time and time again. On Sunday I celebrated My 30th Birthday at brunch and they were kind enough to provide a candle so my family could sing me happy birthday. The service and staff is always incredible and over the top.

Best food in Miami. We have been on vacation from England and have to say this is by far the best restaurant we have eaten in. The food wasn’t rushed, was perfectly cooked and presented and we loved the whole evening. Fabulous place to go.

Great experience for my anniversary. My wife was pleased the wait staff was pleasant and attentive. It’s a bit in the pricey side but for the extent of the menu it was well worth it. I definitely will return whenever I visit Miami.

Food is great and setting is beautiful. Japanese Leaf and chive dumplings were delicious, although Leaf felt as though it had not been properly spinned as dressing was a bit thin and did not adhere to the salad. Big issue was that kitchen was absurdly slow even though it was a slow night. We waited almost an hour between the appetizers and the mains. We left without dessert after waiting too long to order it as we lost patience. Place is beautiful and food is good so hope they fix these issues.

My husband and I unfortunately only had some fruit after going too hard the night before, they only accept cancelations in advance as I’m sure that happens too often. But the layout and variety was impressive. Wish we could’ve enjoyed it!

The setting is beautiful and peaceful- a perfect retreat from the frenzy of South Beach. The food was very good, but the portions were very small for the price. We needed to order extra dishes to avoid leaving hungry. If you are not price sensitive it is a very nice dining experience.

The food was very good & we loved the atmosphere. The only disappointment was that a party seated next to us smoked during the course of our entire meal which I found a little off putting as we were from out of town & are not used to this being allowed indoors.
The server was wonderful & very attentive. The meal would have been better if we were a bit more comfortable in an area without smoking.

Fantastic experience! Dined outside on a Friday which is apparently 'Asian' night. Entertainment was fantastic as was the food and the service. As most places in South Beach Miami, I wish there were more affordable wine by the bottle options. However, would not stop us from going again! We had three teenagers with us who loved the environment and the food :) !

Went for Sunday brunch. Hostess clearly did not enjoy her job and was not welcoming in the least. Our server was pleasant but not overly attentive, often we had empty glasses and for some reason she replaced my fork but never my knife. The food choice was excellent and flavour and quality were great, this saved the overall experience. Managers were also attentive and always visibly checking on tables. Ambience super also, would have happily sat on terrace all afternoon
