Very long time for food. Generally the staff seems to have very little o none experience.
They snack behind the bar etc.
The meat fridge was dirty and the chef was handling with hands a piece of meet not using glows. Restaurant looks not very...clean. Food was simple. Tot good impresión not to repeat.More
Hallmarks of a compromised restaurant were present from the off. Expansive menu, serving food on gimmicky hot stones, a hotel location and only one customer in addition to us. Expectations were set and reinforced by a restaurant entrance through some double doors in to an...unlit lobby. The restaurant was spotlessly clean and well presented; a fridge of ageing beef provides an interesting centre piece that reinforces the claim to quality.
So we are guided to our table by a very young and friendly waitress and given our menus. Now, I'm not the most decisive of people and this menu is vast, and initially seems to be quite confused. Steak... and sushi? There is a curious juxtaposition between a big old lump of cow and finely crafted and delicate sushi. The dilemma is, do you choose the expertly crafted sushi, that you will never recreate at home, or do you go for the steak that, in most restaurants, fails to deliver?
The food arrived. We picked three starters; some cured beef with a sort of thai salsa on top, tempura battered chicken and wonton soup. Those hallmarks of a compromised restaurant were shattered with the first taste of our food. The flavours were strong, but not too intense and balanced beautifully in a way that you will seldom experience. The batter on the chicken had a texture I've never experienced, and the wonton soup? Its wonton soup, it should be bland. It was nothing short of stunning.
For our main meals, we had the duck with mash and a T-bone steak. Now, I've never had t-bone, I normally stick to the readily available rib eye for cooking at home, so i dont know if it was just the natural flavour of the cut, or the quality of the steak, but that was the beefiest beef I've ever tasted. And it was bloody huge. 640g huge! (That's 22 & 1/2oz in old money). Each fork full was more delectable than the last and the hot stone kept its heat right through the meal, allowing me to adjust the steak from rare to medium, just to my liking. Each steak is served with three sauces; garlic, chimichurri, and peppercorn. Normally, this is the kind of thing what you need to add flavour to your meal or they are such poor quality that it would be criminal to spoil nice beef with them. Not so in this restaurant. The garlic sauce had a superbly judged rawness and lightness to it that preserved the fragrance of garlic without being overpowering. The peppercorn sauce was the star though, it was creamy and strong and complimented and enhanced the beef without ever overpowering it.
The duck was a revelation as well, succulent and tender with a sweet, thin and crispy skin - a seldom experienced combination. As with the other dishes, the flavours in the sauce served with the duck were so beautifully balanced, not too sweet, sour or salty, and the way whe flavours develop in the mouth means that you savour every morsel to absorb the full experience. Initially, the sauce is sweet but before it becomes too sweet, it gives way to more delicate flavours, which leave a delightful after taste.
Unfortunately, we were too full for dessert but we will be back and we will have dessert.
The bill came to 424zł, 179zł of which was the t-bone. In English, that's a £92 meal, £40 of which was the t-bone. That is stunning value. £52 for two mains, three starters and two beers is good value for decent chain pub food in britain, but you will never get anything like this quality for less than £100 per couple.
Tl;dr - incredible, memorable food, a bit too warm in the restaurant, young kids will be bored. Perfect for a special occasion for adults and I guarantee you will return.More

Great opinion! ;))) thank you very much and welcome again ;) !!!!
It was quite surprising to find such a restaurant in a as secluded place as this. – Not havig stayed in Tychy Hotel, I wouldn`t have ever visited the place.
True, the look of the place is simple but it is the food that has...the key role to play. We ordered beef. – The maturing fridge/ cupboard is really a gadget building up the atmosphere of the place! – Sadly, due to the fact that all pieces of meat must do some time in there, the beef menu is not fully available. – Well, better so than the round the clock availability of frozen or unprepared meat!
This was why no sirloin was available, but the porter steak proudly made up for it. Well, the way of servuice – on hot stones, partly fried was very interesting and well thought. – For me – the sirloin part of my steak was ok once it was brought from the kitchen and I didn`t need to fry it at all, yet the other part needed some time on the stone. A very good idea to exchange the potatoes (set with the steaks) for very nice grilled vegetables.
- A perfect idea to distribute aprons among those having the steaks! – Had it not been for them, it wouldn`have been possible to enjoy the meal.
Nice reasonably priced wine on offer!More

Thank you for a great review! Welcome back to the steaks! Kaya team!
The place was very clean and modern with a quiet atmosphere. I ordered the T-bone steak, and it was magnificent! Presented on a hot platter and so it was warm all the time, and reasonably priced. Would recommend to everybody.
The menu is large, containing food options from few different cultures. The key type of food of this restaurant is definitely the sushi, made fresh to order, sometimes resulting in a bit of a wait, especially if there are other guests in the restaurant ordering...the same as you.
Second to Sushi is a collection of aged meats, which mature in a display fridge on the restaurants floor - visible to customers. Guests pick their favourite steak, which then is served on a hot plate, allowing them to cook it as they please.
You can also enjoy some nice Teppanyaki if you're coming with a large group, but this has to be booked in advance!
Other foods include some asian, french as well as polish cuisine. Due to the broad menu, it may be time consuming to go through it, but it also means that anyone could find something for themselves. It also means that sometimes not all the dishes are available but as stated above - there will be other tasty dishes to choose from. The staff is knowledgable and eager to help, if asked, they can recommend some of the restaurants signature dishes.
I suggest ordering something to start with form the main kitchen (like one of their lovely soups or some tasty starters) at the same time as Sushi (especially if your order is large with all rolls being different). This will give time to the Sushi master to create your perfect main while you're busy munching on your coconut soup or tempura prawns ;)More
