This was hands down one of the best meals I’ve had recently. We started with the Chili Passion Martini - it was amazing.... it is the cocktail I have been searching for, the perfect amount of sweet and spicy. Our waitress was great and explained the entire menu. We decided to do the tasting menu so we could try a little bit of everything and I’m so happy we did. I couldn’t make up my mind what dumpling to order, so with the tasting menu we got two of each dumpling. All the dim sum was so delicious. Great flavor and texture, my favorites were the truffle dumpling that had scallops and shrimp and I also loved the chive dumpling - but all four were great. We also had the sashimi platter, it was so fresh it melted in your mouth. For our next course we had the shrimp pad thai, Panang curry with grouper and the Peking Duck - everything was delicious. We paired all of this with a great cold dry sake that was recommended by our waitress. With each bite we were blown away. By the time dessert came, we were pretty full, but my favorite was the green tea creme brûlée. Overall this meal was amazing, and I highly recommend it for a special occasion.

Exceptional service. Attention to detail. The new exec chef, Chef Vijay, is amazing. Everything was absolutely perfect. His sea bass tikka, thali platter with lamb and chicken and truffle dumplings were delish. For drinks the Saigon gimlet is a must and save some room for the passion fruit donuts...Yum! Beautiful restaurant that stands up to the world class The Setai brand.

This was my first time dining at Jaya at The Setai and it didn't disappoint. Since I cut drinking in January, they were quick to offer me a Lychee Ginger mock-tail which was just as good as any cocktail! The menu has something for everyone and has some great vegetarian options. My date and I shared the Chive dumplings, Blue Fin Tuna and Sashimi to start. It was some of the freshest fish I have had in Miami. I had the Coconut Soup with Vegetables for my main and it was the perfect amount of coconut flavor. Everything was phenomenal including the service. They were very attentive and knowledgeable.

With the exception of the nice chap that served the water this was a truly dreadful experience.

The server could not care less, hot food was served with freezing cold plates. Chicken tikka came warm on a cold warmer.

We had to pour our own wine.

In a city with great restaurants this is one to miss.

Such a shame

Food arrived after a 90 minute wait - some of which was ok - the rest was cold or barely warm. Dishes were missing and despite the waitress trying her very best we would be loathe to return. Cocktails took forever to arrive too so couldn’t even get tipsy whilst waiting to be fed! The reservation had been messed up for both timings and number of diners! Not impressed at all - no wonder other South Beach restaurants all seemed to be fully booked except this one!

I usually only review NEW or past restaurants that have gone UP or DOWN - this one is the latter!

We eat out a lot in MBeach and have been to Setai 5-6 times in 2017.. all were very good experiences despite being v.expensive, but the experience and quality/taste were worth it! NOT this time (Dec. 28, 2017; wife Bday+kids)!!

The menu has shrunk with the interesting and inventive dishes gone (started in 2nd half of 2017!), making you wonder if the (Exec)Chef has left and only sous-chefs are in the house and not empowered/allowed/willing to develop new dishes or bring back previous (winner) ones... a shrinking and uninventive menu typically bodes badly for a place (Same as for Sakura 763)!

Service was not good at all - timing was off, wine (which I continue to argue is WAY overpriced!) arrived after appetizers; had to ask for plates & cutlery to share appetizers which were placed on the table and getting cold; nobody automatically refilling water glasses unless asked... seemed like they were WAY understaffed and then not properly/fully trained! Manager admitted to that, but that's all he said! Simply NOT acceptable for the price-point they are asking ... they might survive like that on the hotel-guests for a while, but NOT for long!

Instead of going there about every 6-8 weeks, I am afraid this will be at best 1 time a year now (meaning one more chance for redemption, but if that is bad too, it's game over)!
The dishes we had were still very nice, but they are getting old!!! Price is high, and the experience was NOT worth it this time - Go to NARAYA instead if you want some Asian (Indian) Fusion... SoBe is still lacking a high quality reasonably priced and good/inventive Asian Fusion place!

Jaya presents itself as a 5 star experience, however like many reviewers, I found the service did not live up to my view of this standard. We ate during Art Basel, so the restaurant was crowded, so if they anticipated service issues with temporary staff, they could have reduced the 20% automatic service charge. After being seated, we waited 20 minutes for someone to greet us but we had to go to the host stand to ask if someone could wait on us. The servers who came to our table dropped off food (often lukewarm) asking who got what and without a shred of a smile. I noticed other customers getting up to get water since no servers could be found. An expensive dinner that was not worth the money or the time.

The place is so beautiful. Our dinner was superb. Started with the truffled dumplings (one of a kind!!) Steak as the dinner, was so juicy and tasty. Our service is what stood out though. A special thanks to Ashley and Gretchen. Those two are a key to the operation, they executed it amazingly. The next time in town we will be returning. Thanks!

Very poor attempt at asian cuisine starting with the random menu, food with no depth of flavour and basic errors such as overcooked rice and food brought to the table cold. Managed to find a reasonable bottle of red wine from the huge menu but sadly brought to the table straight from the fridge. When mentioned to the server he simply agreed and walked off! Also worth noting that smoking is permitted at the table. Cocktails were the only positive of the night out.

Une catastrophe ! Notre serveuse n’a jamais apporté la sauce soja demandée, nous avons demandé à deux reprises qu’elle vienne pour pouvoir commander le vin, finalement la bouteille est arrivée à la moitié du repas. Le pecking duck (39$) était fade, mal cuit, les crêpes étaient dures et froides.. nous avons eu des excuses et n’avons pas payé pour le plat mais nous recommandons d’éviter ce restaurant ! NB, le restaurant était aux 3/4 vide, ceci explique cela.

Beyond horrible experience. I went with a friend for lunch. We asked for the steak to be cooked medium rare and it was served cold and well done (who do I look like, Trump??). Also, it was supposed to be an entre but I would say it was actually appetizer sized. Similarly, the tuna poke had no flavor and had the consistency of rubber. Only good thing was the truffle dumplings. Also the service was insultingly terrible, presumably because gratuity is include. They brought all three courses at once and our cocktails afterwards. Never ever again.
