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 Mathias Gervais and Executive Sous Chef Vijayudu Veena have collaborated to create standout dishes from Thailand, Korea, India, China and Japan.
Incorporating many traditional culinary techniques from wok stations to tandoori 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, 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 family-style dishes in an inviting atmosphere, creating a lively experience while 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.
Menu highlights include: Egg Steam and Pork Bun Bao; Thali Platter (a traditional Indian dish filled with small pots of chicken, fish and okra); and Kimchi Fried Rice, to name a few. An Asian-focused mixology program and beer selection, sakes as well as The Setai's lavish Wine Cellar all complement Jaya's complex flavor profiles.
Jaya will be open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner including Sundays for The Setai's famed Jazz Brunch. Jaya will also be available for in-room dining options for guests and residents staying at The Setai.
