Fresh, tasty, reasonably priced and NOT a buffet. Neat and nicely decorated. Fast service. I would go there again and again were it not 35 miles from home.

Now that my old go-to Chinese restaurant in Ann Arbor suddenly closed, we have been on the search for a new reason to head up there. We think we've found it in Kai Garden. With a small, very friendly staff and a large menu, the restaurant is attractive, and the food is delicious. We were so addicted to our last... More

I you like Chinese food with fresh veggies, flavorful sauces, and a bit of zip, try Kai Garden on Main Street in Ann Arbor. We like spicy Hot and Sour soup, and consider this version the best in Ann Arbor, which is saying something with all the good choices available in this college town. If you like mild dishes, try...

We have eaten here for many years, many times a year. It is always excellent! Not only do we like their menu items, but they also do up special dishes to our taste. Just tell them how you like it and they make it perfectly. The service is always superb. Tonight my husband and I and our daughter and her... More
