Best ribs I have ever had! Great paella. Excellent, helpful, and friendly service. Prices are appropriate for a slighty higher-end experience.

We have been wanting to try the Vegetarian price fixed menu. We went on Valentine's Day and had a variant of the usual, where they had 2 courses plus dessert. It was really delicious, and I especially loved the mushroom risotto. The waiter was wonderful -- very patient and friendly. I want to try the monthly veggie dinner.

Fantastic service and great atmosphere! We were excited to try some unique dishes with Carribean flavor, and our plantain nachos definitely delivered but the entrees fell flat. The food was ok, but there was hardly any flavor or spice. The jerk chicken in my salad tasted like regular grilled chicken, and my husband’s story fry tasted like regular Chinese stir fry. The server did offer us a variety of hot sauces and peppers to remedy it - and we were impressed by that. Overall, it’s a bit overpriced for the food that you receive, but the happy hour was wonderful and the service was great.

Came in for one of our date nights as it's been a place we wanted to try for some time.

Appetizers were the queso dip and the tropical guacamole. I enjoyed both and really loved the fact we got flour tortillas with the queso dip, definitely not a norm but a welcomed surprise. The only thing I'd like to have is a bit spicier of a queso dip but that's just my personal opinion. The tropical guacamole was delicious as well.

I ordered the Paella and my husband ordered the Chile Rellenos for dinner. Both fantastic and super flavorful. Paella was different than the traditional dish by adding chorizo and chicken along with Pineapple--SO GOOD! My husband said that the Chile Rellenos might have been the best he's had which says a lot coming from him!

would definitely recommend this to friends and family to try.

I like Kaya very much, but on this occasion the fish in the tacos was so overdone I hardly knew it was fish, and my friend's sweet potato fries were almost burnt.
The server was fantastic -- very helpful and informative -- so we didn't complain.
I'd like to return because this may have just been a one-time occurence -- I hope so!

I had the corn and conch soup. I really enjoyed that.
We all enjoyed our evening.

We will return in the near future.

We went for my husbands birthday dinner. Party of 7. My sons and my Kaya were burnt to a crisp and dry. We ordered Medium well. But it was so burnt and dry we both only had a few bites and both of us were disgusted. When the manager came by to ask us how everything tasted we told him about our burgers. The waitress returned and said they took the chips and salsa off our bill. My husband and I have been going to Kaya for years. It has always been a good experience. But I don’t know that we will ever return. Disappointed with our meals, we left hungry.
