The Ned can do no wrong... Great vibe, great food and good company. First time at Kaia but definitely not the last...

The food was amazing, everything was really tasty. And the ambiance was lovely, the singers were great, it felt very Christmassy. The service was poor in Kaia. We were looking around for the waiting staff several times and could not find them to order etc. The other real down side was the fact that although we spent £300 on a “substantial meal” in Kaia, to have drinks literally ten steps from where we have had our meal to sit by the Christmas tree we were told we have to buy another meal. Same hotel, same roof, just a different seat and yet we had to buy a whole other meal. We couldn’t even have pudding and then a drink, we had to buy main courses. Why would we do that? Really unreasonable and a ridiculous interpretation of the government policy.

Honestly a beautiful place with wonderful decor. Nice and bustling with great food! I recommend the black cod and the spicy tuna maki!

One thing is is that their social distancing measures are pretty non existent.

Wonderful building, excellent food, good service, just one issue is the size of the Saki bottle... it should be double the size for the prices charged. I am already planning a return visit for my family very soon!

I have been a couple of times and the food is always excellent. Staff are warm and friendly. Thank you to the gentleman on the reservations line who put up with my numerous calls when my friends were running late patiently and the lady on reception who kindly moved my booking to a later time. Will definitely return!

The food was most delicious - great ambiance and very pleasant service. The only critiisiam is we made felt a bit rushed being told that we only had 1 1/2 hours and being reminded again.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in London. The salmon, the black cod, the prok belly and the lamb chops are all spectacular. The service is great and location is really special. It's a place I would choose for my birthday or any night in the week after work. It's a perfect formal informal.

It was a nice dinner, the service was great albeit a little slow to take our order to begin with which meant that we were quite rushed to finish before the 10pm deadline. The food was amazing and I would recommend Kaia. The only slight disappointment was that during the booking process they ask if the reservation is for a special occasion, the dinner was for our anniversary and nothing was mentioned at all - why ask if you do nothing with the information.

First time at Kaia.
Food is nothing special. Substandard food - over priced. There are much better Japanese restaurants in London.
Took my wife for her birthday and made sure that was clear on the reservation. Expected a birthday gesture but it didn’t happen.
Service felt rushed from the moment we arrived.

Food was very basic, Ordered the wagyu steak, didn't have the texture of wagyu at all, and the flavour was drown in what can only be described as Branston pickle on top of it. The broccoli ad Fried chicken were good but very basic. Social Distancing was impossible at the resturant

Very disappointed with the food unfortunately. Obviously it cost a lot and it wasn’t good at all.
We had two servers a female who was lovely and a male who really wasn’t polite and he was very abrupt and borderline rude.

Good in the current circumstances. The staff were busy so some wait for drinks and menus. Assume staffing levels are stretched by the covid problem.

Have to say I was very impressed. the food was good and we had bit to share and the waiter made sure we had enough pieces to share for all 4 of us.
Drinks were good too.
We could have spent the whole evening there but we had our 10pm curfew which they reminded us very professionally and politely.
Can’t wait to go back!

First time at the Ned, it was great, I would go back again. The food was creative and I didn't leave hungry. It was louder than I was expecting, considering there are fewer people in the building than normal due to social distancing. Still, I liked my evening just fine.

I always really enjoy the food at Kaia. We had a very healthy selection of broccoli, asparagus, mushrooms, aubergine with sides of tuna. A friend had the double salmon poke bowl. The edamame are great - just the right temperature. It'd be nice for vegans if we could have a trio of vegetables in slightly smaller portions as we over-ordered just to have variety. The music was a tad loud last week.
