I enjoyed my coffee and breakfast very much at Riba Kai. What a surprise in a shopping mall. The food was well cooked & very generous serves for the prices especially with the extras I added to my breakfast. Will eat there again.

I have been here a few times for both breakfast and lunch, the food and drinks are always spot on. Breakfasts are always fresh and tasty, and the coffee is smooth and creamy. Lovely places to sit, with friendly and helpful staff.

Chose the special Persian Eggs - poached eggs bacon and Avocado with lemon infused whipped feta and dukkah - delicious. The chef kindly served my eggs on spinach instead of toast. Lovely prompt service, great... More

I have walked past this café a lot of times but I know now it was my mistake. No complaints, all the food, coffee, staff ,service are commendable each time we have been there. Try it I don't think you will be disappointed.
