We are proud to welcome you to our modern Asian restaurant.
Jaya, which means 'victory' in Sanskrit, was chosen by our team to honor The Setai's renowned interior designer Jaya Ibrahim and the hotel's first decade of successful Asian-inspired hospitality. Executive Chef Vijayudu Veena has created standout dishes from Thailand, Vietnam, Korea, India, China and Japan.
Incorporating many traditional culinary techniques from wok stations to tandoor ovens, Jaya's menu features modern Asian cuisine with the bountiful flavors of turmeric, cardamom, ginger, cinnamon, chilies, coconut milk and tamarind and will also present longtime Setai favorites including Peking Duck, Naan breads, Indian curries, Tandoor sea bass and Dim Sums.
Food is the key thread in the fabric of Asian life and how people socialize. As such, Jaya follows this tradition serving dishes in a style to be shared in an inviting atmosphere to make for a lively experience paired with the sophistication and hospitality you've come to expect from The Setai, Miami Beach.
As our guest, you have the choice of either dining indoors or in The Setai's serene courtyard with retractable roof.
Menu highlights include: Bluefin Tuna and Black Pepper Shrimp; Thali Platter (a traditional Indian dish filled with small pots of chicken, fish and okra); and Shortrib Gyoza and Truffle dumplings to name a few. An Asian-focused mixology program, sakés as well as The Setai's lavish Wine Cellar all complement Jaya's complex flavor profiles.
Jaya is open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner including Sundays for The Setai's famed Jazz Brunch. Jaya is also available for in-room dining options for guests and residents staying at The Setai.
We look forward to seeing you at Jaya.
