My son usually hates rice but he loved their rice. Sweet and sour chicken was delicious. Gaya has a great variety on their menu. The sauces were excellent. The service was good. And they have a welcoming atmosphere.

Good food because they are serving PORK, as a solo eater "Fried Rice with Pork" is enough for me but i had Corn & Chicken Soup prior to my main meal. Four Kinds of vegetable condiments are served right after you order your food..

Four of us went to Gaya, which is a Korean restaurant in Ma'adi. Three others had the Special K Pork, which she a house specialty and I had spicy prawns. One of the guys found the pork just too hot so chose a less spicy version. Four main courses, two starters and two beers each came to around $20 each... More

Good location and easy to park. Good South Korean cuisine, great quality. Good service and timing. Beer available. You can also find Pork if you can eat it. Good taste in a good ambiance with many Koreans and same other expatriates. Good prices.

7 of us aged 7 to 70 enjoyed a splendid meal in this delightful restaurant. The food is worth 5 stars but I don't want to deceive those who want a smart restaurant since the chairs and tables are fairly basic. However the staff are excellent and the chef is quality. We chose a variety of starters and 5 dishes... More

I am not going to even mention the food, it's faultless and indeed authentic. However today there was no kimchi in the restaurant!!!!!!! This is a Korean colony crime. However this review is about the extremely rude Korean manager. I just need to say that I eat at Gaya at least twice a month. Every time I enter and I... More

Welcoming and comfortable atmosphere. Not big restaurant. Friendly staff. Lots of choices and reasonable prices. Tasty and well presented dishes. Conveniently located in the centre of Maadi residential area of Cairo. Have been few times and quality of food and service were consistent. Highly recommended
