I really like this place for what it offers, a changing menu of simple home cooked meals for a good price. It is good a place located in the center of town, if you just want a quick lunch. Great service.

Nowadays the menu seems a bit repetitive (for a place that presumably rewrites it's chalkboard menu every day, updating it on the go as the fresh stuff is sold out or the chef prepares something new) but it's still small and cozy and the food is ultimately a great value for money. If you're new in town, definitely check it... More

We spent a few hours in the restaurant, sharing dinner ... with a few cheeky flies. Luckily they were resting time to time on the cups with (tap) water. Is difficult to enjoy your meal and fight with flies. Service staff seemed tired and bored. We had to ask targeted questions about the drinks. We had to ask expressly napkins.... More

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 !!!
