Whilst Korean food has become more popular in recent years, many of the restaurants lack some of the subtleties of authentic Korean cuisine, partly to cater to western tastes. KAYA is more authentic than many of its peers and serves a mix of formal and street food dishes including signature dishes like naengchae – jelly fish and seafood in mustard sauce served in an ice bowl, mung bean pancakes and various kimchi side dishes.
The restaurant provides a good services and tries convey a sense of Korean culture in its decoration and staff outfits. If you are looking for a Korean take on Wagamama; go elsewhere. If you are looking to try something new, step right up.
