Restaurant Review: Kaya House

I was hoping to try the newly opened Siagon Blue on Tuesday night, however, unfortunately it was closed. Nearby Meze Mangal was full, so we headed down to Kaya House in Deptford.

A number of friends have recommended Kaya House as serving authentic Malaysian cuisine so I was keen to try it for myself. We were met by the cheerful Ambrose who brings a personal service and atmosphere to the small restaurant without being over powering.

The menu has an 6 different set menus (including two vegetarian), a number of Malaysian specialities as well as the more common dishes you expect to find in every Chinese restaurant. We opted to share one of the meat and vegetarian set menus. The ever friendly Ambrose told us that we could substitute in a dish from the a la carte menu if we wanted to add a favourite not featured on the set menu.

On reflection I'm not sure how Malaysian some of the dishes we had were! We had spring rolls, sesame prawn toast, peking duck, stir fried vegetable, sweet and sour chicken, stir fried prawns, fried aubergine and some asparagus. Quite a range of dishes I am sure you will agree! Throw in a couple beers for around £17.50 a head and I don't think you can argue with the value either.
