We were so glad to find this lovely Korean restaurant just shortly after moving to Cairo. Spicy kimchi, nice bulgogi! Everything we’ve had has been good. We’ll definitely be frequenting Gaya whenever we have the urge for good Korean food!,

Great food and great service. Only thing I wanted and never got was kimchi. I always wanted to buy kimchi and it was never for sale. But great food and reasonable prices.

I was new to Korean food so my host did the ordering. There was selection of pickled dishes, some very spicy, to nibble on while we waited for our mains. We ordered several, at least 8 dishes or more (there were 4 of us) and...More
