By all means, stop by. Not bad at all. Clean and quick. Just nothing exceptional that would justify driving out of the way for. I got the Jap Chae and it was tasty and fresh. Not many servers but they managed alright.

Dined here on June 5, 2016 at 6:05 pm. First visit:First impression-Looks lovely inside with an impressive sushi bar at the entry. I was greeted and promptly seated by one of the two servers on the floor. There was a male and a female on at this time. The male seated me and served me a beverage. He was taking... More

This restaurant was just what we needed (good food, good service, and no wait). We had miso soup, eggrolls, and crazy rolls. There was a happy hour for appetizers that brought the total cost down. It was all good, and we will go back when in the area.

One of our favorite places to eat when we are craving Sushi and other Asian favorites. Enough variety to make everyone in the family Happy and when you have kids this is a must.

Went with a Living Social voucher, but probably wouldn't have stopped here otherwise. The building and parking area are very run down and dirty looking. The inside was not much better. It looks like a converted Ponderosa or something similar. Booths with laminate tables and vinyl seats. Temperature was a little warm. Menu was pretty good, my husband and daughter... More

We had heard from several people, and several reviews that the best Sushi around was at Kai, so off we went. Driving up to the building, my wife and I look at each other, with that "are you sure you want to try this" look. But, not being a person to read a book by its cover, we ventured inside.... More

Really diverse lunch menu with lots of specials for many types of asian cuisine. My favorites tend to be Korean, but there are great selections of Chinese, Japanese and Thai as well. Big sushi bar here, too.

Kai is located right off of the 410 highway at the corner of Vance Jackson. It is labeled as a Japanese restaurant but actually has a menu with much much more. For your guests that don't eat anything raw, they can try something from the hot kitchen with Chinese, Japanese, and Korean offerings. I come here very often, everytime I... More

We stopped here for an early dinner and to try sushi. It's located in a former Tom's Ribs. They did a good job transforming the "rib" decor. We were greeted by a friendly Japanese server who answered a lot of our questions. She took the time to explain each item. The edamame was okay but lacked taste and were small.... More
