Great food and great service. Only thing I wanted and never got was kimchi. I always wanted to buy kimchi and it was never for sale. But great food and reasonable prices.

My son usually hates rice but he loved their rice. Sweet and sour chicken was delicious. Gaya has a great variety on their menu. The sauces were excellent. The service was good. And they have a welcoming atmosphere.
