Slow service. Food wasn’t the best.
The food served was absolutely great and delicious. The only problem for us was that we got seated to the high table with some really high chairs,which where impossible to get near the table to be comfortable. Also when the people next to us were trying to get to the table, the whole thing was shaking like crazy. So the chairs were really not good but the awesome food almost made us forget about that.
Took my daughter (15) she loves the Miso soup but all of the food and service was excellent. Atmosphere great too would recommend to anyone either on a night out or a special meal.
Great food. Fab atmosphere and wonderful service! Will defo be back!
The food was amazing. Really enjoyed the ambiance and service by the waiting staff. They also made a special effort with the dessert as it was my partner's birthday.
Really good food but at a premium in terms of pricing. If you are looking for a quiet meal for 2 this might not be the place for you given the seating arrangements, especially along the long marble "bar" section.
Pork bell was very average with little sauce/flavour, everything else was delicious
Lovely brunch with great food and ambience. Willdefo be going back. We went with our 4 year oldandshe enjoyed it too.
We celebrated our wedding anniversary in Kaia on Sunday brunch.Everything was amazing from the beginning to the end!Our waitress Hollie was superb!Many thanks for the special dessert plate!We will be back for sure!
The brunch quality was good but I think the selection could be bigger.
The service was really good. Our waitress was very attentive, always smiling & friendly.
Would definitely visit again.
Good atmosphere to dine in, with live music playing in the background/near dining area. Excellent service by staff at the restaurant, Matthew , in particular was great and helpful.
Black Cod & Salmon were delicious! Lovely dining experience - thanks!
Great food, setting is fantastic and the service was the best. Will definitely be back
Food was v good, v expensive for what we had and service very poor and far too slow. Nice place but service let’s it down.
Amazing food! Would recommend to go to eat at Kaia and aferwards go to The Ned bar for drinks.
Service was quick, restaurant was very loud, but food was tasty!
My wife choked on a fishbone found in her salmon poke bowl, resulting in the entire morning experience being ruined. The restaurant manager did address this issue accordingly, but it does not distract from the fact that the priority of any skilled sushi chef is to ensure all bones are removed.
Apart from this, it felt cramped and noisy. At this price point, consideration needs to be taken towards the number of covers they turn around at peak times. The staff were too busy to be personable and attentive.
I hated the service. The waiter refused to even get us water as required. When I asked him to keep the jug on the table, he said it was out of policy. The chicken dish was horrible and we did not eat it. We were not even asked if there was something wrong with the dish (we only had a bite). I wouldn’t recommend this place. And definitely advice the restaurant to train staff better and treat all guests equally.
Have been here a few times before and it has always been very good. Unfortunately this time it was not good at all. Really slow and unattentive service. The toilets were also out of order so they had zero toilets that were available for use....seriously?!? Not impressed.
We had a delicious lunch, in great surroundings, while having a meeting. Highly recommended.
Lovely venue, tables quite close to each other, not alot of room to walk especially when you hv a full plate of food. Food was very good quality. Good value for money considering the 5 star venue in the heart of London. Comes with 1 free drink too. Will go again!
Would have preferred to not share our table with 6 other people in various groups as we didn’t have much space and it didn’t seem like a premium experience. Also would have liked more choice with the welcome drink, like a prosecco or Bellini - bear, sake, Bloody Mary isn’t for everyone.
Lovely time with my friends for their birthday! Good service, very nice food but I was expecting more sashimi! Beautiful location
Service average a little disorganised but pleasant . Starters not great. Lamb chops very good though as was black cod.
The Ned is a great spot in the city to make the everyday feel special! Of all the options i hadnt yet tried Kaia, and it didnt disappoint! we had some gorgeous dishes, the wagyu was delicious and the prawn tempura and spicy sauce was great. Definitely recommend!
Uncomfortable seats, but feast buffet is good. Still it isn't worth the price.
Great food but very expensive, nice environment but quite loud.
Went for lunch mid-week. Excellent poke bowls and black cod gyoza, in a very cool setting. We were sat at the long marble counter - great view of the beautiful Ned interiors. Overall highly recommend it here, it's worth returning just for the poke alone! One star knocked off for service - we had to wait ages to pay as they were very busy, plus towards the end of our meal a waiter spilt a nearby drink and some liquid got onto my handbag (they dealt with very professionally though and gave us free pudding and coffee to compensate).
food amazing, service v slow and food took ages - but the waiters were trying to rush us which killed the vibe a bit
It reminds me of Central Station in New York, very nice food and I got to see a celebrity from Guardians of the Galaxy, which was exciting. I really liked the vibe and the peculiar layout of the sitting plan.
Very impressive surroundings. The staff were very attentive throughout and the staff on the buffet were keen to please and help with choices. The food was very good and the quality was high across the whole range on offer.
We were very impressed and will be back.
Amazing amazing amazing amazing amazing amazing amazing
Fantastic laid back evening. Food slightly pricey but very good quality none the less!
The food and service was brilliant at Kaia. The waiter knew the menu well and provided some great Reccomendations. All the food tasted really good especially the poke bowls and also the black cod! Definitely need to come back!
Nice food, but too noisy and customers are too close to the shared tables
Strange lunch time protocols -> have seen staff turn people away at 11:58am because they do not open until 12:00pm
Food was amazing and actually very good value for the Ned. Let down by poor service sadly - slow and non-existent at times.
A fantastic brunch experience. Food and service excellent. The only gripe I'd have is that you are restricted to 1.5 hours for parties of 2, but given 2 hours for parties of 3 or more. Feels a bit unfair.
Beautiful food in an amazing setting, but poor service.
Bar table are too wide so yr friend is sitting a little too far and hard to hear them as so noisy. The lamps are also too large so if you find yourself in a spot where you have them, it’s awkward.
