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.

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.

Filets are always done to absolute perfection served with delicious mushroom sauce.
Totally surprised by their delectable Sushi servings. Ki's is one of our favorite dining spots along the coast. You won't be disappointed.

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.

Due to the lockdown and Ki’s interior remodeling we dined under a tent in the parking lot. They tried to make it as pleasant as asphalt can be. A nice touch was the mellow music playing from a boom box in their window. And eating with a masked wait staff is always creepy.
But the food was delicious. Spicy rainbow roll and fresh spring rolls. I tried the luscious mango Margie with spicy salt. Will go back when we can eat dinner inside.

Be sure to ask what the specials are. Unfortunately our waitress failed to share them. We would have loved to have tried the sea bass! This was our first visit for dinner and found the waitress to be non attentive. I’ve been here for lunch many times and have enjoyed it. Dinner was disappointing!

Hard to rate ambiance during Covid eating in a temporary outdoor space. Food had good flavor but, my fish came with a tropical salsa and the fruit (which I typically love) I didn’t eat because it looked as though it was a couple days old.

Gourmet delights for vegans and omnivores. Our birthday party of four had a fabulous time, the outdoor seating is very comfortable with a nice ocean view. All staff were friendly and welcoming. Our waiter, Parker is a real gem and made our evening a nice social event. Five star, diamond service and attention to detail. We hope to return soon and enjoy more of the menu and great atmosphere. Thank you to all staff who make Ki's a delightful local destination. Save room for the chocolate decadence!
Virtual hugs and blessings for health and wealth to you all.

Ki's is a long-time favorite of ours in Cardiff and they have pivoted well with their patio dining. The food is just as good as it's always been and the staff is friendly and capable. We always follow our dinner with a walk on the beach. Perfect!

Food was excellent! We had the Warm Brie, mango and avocado roll, Chili/Lime Edamame and the Cajun Persuasion roll. Service was great too. Because of COVID-19 they had to convert the parking lot into the seating area. Still saw a sliver of the beach from where we sat. Distancing was good.
I would recommend to family and friends.
