KuYa Asian Restaurant

A "treasure" that patrons are "craving all the time".

KuYa, meaning “big brother” in Filipino, is exactly what the proprietor is to the restaurant – caring and ever-present on the restaurant’s two floors, the upper of which is reserved for small private events. With discreet lighting, background vibing music and contemporary urban décor, KuYa has an upbeat feel to it. You can dine at a table or sit on a stool at the bar, admiring the large display of original, colourful craft beer cans like a modern art exhibit. The staff bustles around wearing t-shirts proudly emblazoned with ‘Eat like an Asian’ and you can prepare to do just that!

Dive right in with Prawn Dimsum or Fenek Yakitori. The Pork Belly Bao Bun, the tender steamed dumplings filled with prawn or vegetables, and the Tom Kha Gai chicken soup with coconut and ginger are all heavenly. Next, try using chopsticks to eat the divine Pork Adobo, or the luscious yellow Thai curry with calamari and fragrant white rice. Be sure that any dish you choose will be absolutely delicious. Enjoy a local or foreign craft beer, wine or an Asian cocktail. Finally, conclude with a deconstructed banoffee or a Matcha Blondie – their dessert makes for a perfect ending to a wonderful meal.
