Respond to Review of Kaya's Kitchen
Review: I feel compelled to write. I have been going to Kaya's for about 4 years, less and less as the prices have gone up and up. I understand organic produce is more costly and have no problem paying more for it. I work for a company that only uses organic products, so I am well aware of wholesale prices. I just feel that some items are far more expensive then can be justified by saying well its all organic. Let me say this is just my feelings and my reasons for not going to Kayas more often. I have had many menu items I have enjoyed very much and other that have not been all that great, but of course that is true for any restaurant as it just a matter of taste. I have seen a lot of reviews complaining about the service, while I have found the service to be slow it is always very friendly and knowing it will be slow I always go expecting to be there longer and never in a rush, so this has never bothered me having to wait a little longer. The wait staff is always super friendly, Rachael is the best, I am always trilled to see that she is working when I go, she has a great smile and love having her as my sever. All the staff as always been very friendly but for me hands down Rachael is my favorite. I think Kaya's is the perfect choice when I go for lunch or dinner with people who are not vegan or vegaterian since everyone can always find something they enjoy. But the reason I felt compelled to write has less to do with the restaurant and more to do with the response to the negitive reviews that are on this site. I feel like it is very unprofessional to responed in such a way. Maybe it is none of my business but it has affected the way I feel about the restaurant itself. Even though many of the items on the menu are the same as Veggie Works it is not the same place. Both have some things that a better and some that are not. The vegan community although growing is still a small community and I feel that we all need to support each other not knock one another down. I hope that my review will just stop and make people think love and support is the place we should come from not negitivity and mean spirtedness. It may make no difference either way but like I said I felt compelled to share my thoughts. Love and blessings to all.
