Wonderful food and service (except desert, which was so-so).
Also, please do something about the noise level--hang more tapestries or materials on the wall to absorb the sound. It was next to impossible to have a conversation.
Great find in Pittsburgh! Can’t recommend it enough! Our waitor was outstanding and made the best menu suggestions-tropical paella and jerk wings. Fun atmosphere and cool background music. Gi! You won’t be disappointed!
Definitely a taste of Jamaica! Awesome vibe.
Kaya is consistently excellent. Fun and lovely decor and very creative menu. Sunday brunch is a favorite, especially the salmon eggs Benedict -- they use cornbread as the base and serve it with grilled pineapple -- fabulous! Prices are very reasonable and the servings are very generous.
It was good, I will return for brunch or happy hour maybe. We went during the time no one else really seems to rave about- dinner on Saturday. No amazing happy hour specials, no cool brunch options. The Jamaican Jerk wings app we ordered was good, but I’ve had much better wings at a dive bar- one of the problems was the texture, very rubbery. That could be remedied by cooking longer maybe.
My friend got the salmon and b*tched about it a bunch but didn’t say anything to the restaurant, which was stressful since I paid $24 for it (small piece of salmon, rice and mushroom) he said it was burnt on the outside and soft on the inside.
I ordered the rainbow salad, it was good and not a bad value. It’s worth a try. Next time I’ll try the fish tacos.
Service excellent. Paella perfectly cooked, some of the best I've had lately.
Service was fantastic!
It was my fiancé’s birthday and everything was great!!
Great brunch. The burrito was filled with chorizo and bacon and guacamole. My friend had fish tacos. The brunch drinks were a delightful accent.
Our go to brunch restaurant. Do not miss the Conch Fritters and Jerk Wings!!!
Creative menu offerings in a casual and relaxed setting. Service was good and pricing was appropriate for what we ate.
I loved the decor as soon as I walked in. It had such a great fusion of Caribbean atmosphere and food. The service was great and the good was amazing!
Great birthday dinner!
Highly recommend!! Food and service was excellent. Great music playing as well. Even my picky eating teenagers loved it and said it’s the best restaurant they have ever been to. We will definitely go back! Be sure to make a reservation as there is not a lot of seating. We went on a Friday night and it was packed.
As usual Kaya provides an excellent dining experience. I love this restaurant, great food and great drinks
Kaya has excelllent food, especially the guacamole, Poke and salads. Always very fresh. Service is excellent and have never had a bad experience.
We had a wonderful dinner at Kaya. We enjoyed the delicious and unique menu, the exceptional (and strong) drinks, and our wonderful server. Our food was PERFECTLY prepared and spiced, really unique combinations. Kurt was a master at what he does and contributed to our perfect night out -- he knew exactly what we needed the second we needed it (more water, another drink, how to perfectly time our appetizers and entrees), but was never hovering or interrupting our conversation. He was GREAT. We will definitely be back, already dreaming of conch fritters and spicy tuna poke...
Amazing !!!!!! I will be going back really soon . Nachos were my favorite
This is the second time we have been there in the last month. The food is absolutely unique and delicious. We can't wait to go back!
Had a wonderful dinner with friends. Fantastic food and service. Each of our group of 4 enjoyed their food, 2 of us had the fish tacos...very good! And I love their guacamole with mango for pre-meal munching. The atmosphere is warm, casual and friendly. I will definitely be going back.
The manager Matt is awesome.
Very good menu for vegan and vegetarians. Especially on veggie night (3rd Wed each month). No other places to get "real" vegan food in Pittsburgh, very well prepared and presented.
Food was great. Service was amazing!
Excellent and tasty food.
Quick and knowledgeable waitress.
Very good cocktails.
Great food and service! Always see the same friendly staff! Great vegetarian options; love the rainbow salad! Wish they had tomato soup more often; fantastic!
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.
Always have a delicious meal here. Wish the liquor list included prices
love this place!! my wife and i have been around 10 times and everytime is great!! haven’t had a bad meal yet. she loves the cuban and the fried chicken sandwich is amazing !! the drinks are tasty as well!! overall this place is a 10!!
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.
Great food with an awesome list of options. Our service was excellent and felt the prices for value were very good. We will be back.
Great service and great food
Great time and great food!
Vegan family dinner with daughter before she left for semester abroad. Delicious. Highly recommend!
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.
Wonderful food, drinks and service. We will be back!
I love Kaya. The food is always on point and I've never had a miss with it. Our waiter was AWESOME. Super friendly and had a great vibe about him. He was quick to recommend things and offer suggestions. Will definitely be back again and again.
Very enjoyable !
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 frequent Kaya often and love their food. The food is extremely fresh and consistently top notch. The service was efficient and great allowing us to make an appointment on time. Definitely recommend for lunch and dinner.
