Very cool place to sit outside and have drinks in the old part of the city. Food is not exceptional but decent. On warm evenings can't be better to imbide and have some basic nibbles. Been here a lot when in clug. Service is great!

This is, in my opinion, the best restaurant in Cluj. When I was staying at Retro Hostel while flat hunting, I went to Kaja Taya nearly every day. The food is the best Hungarian food, if not the best food in the whole city, the staff are friendly, attentive and always happy to see you. The prices are incredibly reasonable... More

Went there on an early dinner looking for good food and a quiet place. Kaja T really made all this happen. The food was excellent and came extremely quickly. Inside you sit on high chairs so it's not a place to fall asleep, but this actually helps with the overall atmosphere. Great experience, will definitely come back for more.

I ate several times at Kaja Tanya: the food was tasty, the service was good and friendly, plus the nice atmosphere attracts students and academics alike. It's the HQ of the Cluj/Kolozsvár speleologists, which gives it a special allure.

The food was great, the service the same. Only the place should be a little bigger, but if you put that aside, it is one of the best places in Cluj, if you are looking for good food at good rates !!!

We had a water, 1 tea, 1 leek crepe, 1 fried fish burger with coucous as side AND 1 chocolate crepe with banana and that was 39lei. The leek crepe, which was delicious and filling with... More

My first impression was that i entered a typical greek family taverna. The restaurant is located in a pedestrian area ofvthe city center, in an old building. It is quite small - 15 people will probably fill the single room. But makes for a big advantage in my view. I was here for a dinner and the other people seemed... More

A must go place for everybody who visits/lives in Cluj-Napoca. Nice atmosphere, very good food and nice staff. Non smoking place. Prices are not exactly cheap, but totally worth it. Food is exquisite actually.

If you are a traveller to Romania you will know that the majority of food cafe/restaurants here split into 2. Romanian cuisine or Italian inspired. This is not a criticism, just how it is.
