I've been vegetarian for 23 years. I'm not some some neophyte that just walked into a vegetarian restaurant and expected to be amazed. I ordered what I consider to be a safe meal. Mashed potatoes, vegetables, and lentil loaf. That was a mistake. The mashed...More

My teenage son is a vegan, which means eating out with him is sometimes tricky, especially since my husband and I are omnivores. Plus, he doesn't really like super-healthy-fancy-vegan stuff, but he doesn't eat meat, dairy, fish or eggs. Kaya's to the rescue! Awesome food,...More

The mock meat sampler platter is an absolute must (and be warned, it is big enough for a meal, and even as a shared appetizer it was too filling). The seitan steak is good, but it is always very thing and difficult to cut/chew. The...More

Response from Ram R | Reviewed this property |
It does have a minimalistic decor - some art paintings and a cloth mural of Elephant god. There was also a band that was playing while we were having dinner, it was OK.
Is there a full menu on Sunday or is it buffet?
