We were here for an early dinner with small kids. Service was OK, both veg and tropical paellas good, but shrimp curry did not meet expectations

The food was very fresh and delicious here. The fish tacos are wonderful and very plentiful. I would recommend reservations in the summer, if you want to sit inside. I would have given this a five star, but the cocktails were extremely slow in coming.

Hi -I believe that of the Big Burrito Group, (Kaya, Casbah, Eleven), the Mad Mex restaurants are the only ones with a Happy Hour(s). But I'd call to make sure at Kaya. The menu-food and cocktail- at Kaya changes... More
