During these trying times, we are trying to adjust our service so that customers feel safe but still have a great Ki's experience. Daytime service is as it always has been: order at the counter and the food will be brought to you in the seating area we have created outside under the tents. Night-time is full service. Sunday through Thursday is upstairs. The tables are spaced far apart and there is an option of being out on the front deck for parties of two. On Friday and Saturday, we will be offering full service in both seating areas of upstairs and under the tents outside.
Ki's is a perfect fit for its local beach community culture. We provide food options that serve the needs of people who enjoy the outdoors and have a high degree of awareness for their health, fitness and well being. And Ki's is more than just a 'health food' option for many. It is simply great food for anyone-professionals, families looking for a home-cooked meal or friends hanging out enjoying some tasty eats.

The Macadamia Coconut Mahi was excellent. I love the fact that they offer small plates, specially if an appetizer is ordered. The restaurant is simple but the view makes up for it. Entrees are well priced and staff is friendly and professional. Casual atmosphere for interesting plates and family friendly environment. Looking forward to dining at Ki’s restaurant again.

love this place - inside or outside - both are nice. Great sushi on most nights (not M and T I believe). Excellent drinks and food too.

We were visiting the area and ended up eating three meals at Ki's because we liked it so much. The sushi rolls are amazing, the curry was generous and delicious and we loved our breakfast there sitting outside safely distanced from the other patrons.

What a terrific find..... food is innovative, healthy, and fairly priced!
They have also made outdoor dining as comfortable as possible, plus it is right across from the ocean at a prime location!
I think that Ki’s is a very underrated restaurant, considering all that it has to offer!

The coconut curry with chicken was fantastic, and the filet was cooked perfectly. I’ve had most of their appetizers and they are all delicious. We love going when they serve sushi and grab a roll or two with our dinner.

I had a very nice family dinner at KI's. It was my first time eating here & thought the place was really nice & well priced. Our party of four was helped out immediately as to where the most comfortable place to be seated was at. Our server was a great help as to specials & choices of wine.

I’ve been to Ki’s many times for dinner. I really like the food and the portion sizes. They have great gluten free options and sushi on the weekends. Very good for the price. Their outdoor dining situation is really nice during COVID, and we appreciate everything the restaurant has done to accommodate the current environment and still provide quality. Thanks Ki’s

As usual everything at Ki’s was amazing. The only thing was that we went in anticipation of the sunset menu and happy hour and they didn’t have that. I wish OpenTable/ki’s had made that clear on the website.
