We had an amazing time. We had a seat over on the corner so we could truly enjoy one another. I’ve been to Kai quite a few times and this time I wanted to try new things. The server recommended quite a few things and all of them were delicious. I really enjoyed my time. Thanks Hai

This was our 20th wedding anniversary celebration, and our table had a couch and was situated in a private niche for us to celebrate. Overall the ambiance was top notch, the drinks were great. However, the food was a bit over priced for the quality and quantity, but you expect that from a high end restaurant. The ox tail and bone marrow fried rice was the star of the menu.

Went there for a late dinner which in the evenings on Saturdays turns into a nightclub. It was SO much fun from the service to the food, to the music. It was excellent!

First time here. Great atmosphere for a date or girls night out. Food is delicious but sharing plates came with 4 pieces max so just keep in mind with a larger group. Music was really good. Service was amazing. Our waitress kept us well hydrated and gave great recommendations on things to try for the table. We can’t wait to come again!

Only criticism is that the wait staff are wearing outfits that make them appear like they offering more than food. Really don't need another woman's breasts in my face while I'm having dinner with my wife. One server was wearing a garter belt and stockings. Just a bit over the top. They are attractive women but the restaurant does not need to exploit them this way. Unfortunately, we won't be back just for this reason which is too bad since everything else was fabulous.

So the food was good but way way way too expensive for what you get $27 for half a plate of fried rice is a bit much. Waitress was friendly enough but seats were small and uncomfortable. Sad watching posers flex at the bar with their $2 fake watches.. just a 6/10 maybe 8/10 if you don’t care about money

Used to love this restaurant but sadly standards are slipping. I appreciate that staffing is an issue in the industry today but doesn’t excuse dirty menus and carafes.
Food was good but has been better before. Regret to say it will be a while before we return.

Great food and ambiance… we chose to do the Chef Made Menu - Omakase. It was fun and yummy - a little expensive for what you get. But we got to try many things! Drinks were wonderful. Callie (spelling?!?) was a great server, she did wonderful!

We went to the lounge area for a birthday with a reservation at 9:45 and was never informed of a two hour minimum time slot. Everything was great until it wasn’t. We were a party of 9 ordering bottle service and other drinks. We were dancing enjoying the music and were quickly told we had to leave. While we could understand if they asked us if we were done and wanted to tab out but no we were forced to finish our drinks and we’re kicked out of the bar for another party coming for our table with no option of moving areas or just moving to the bar to continue drinking. The people are rude and I will not go back there for any event. They lost me as a customer. Do better Kai and learn customer service.

Food was good, the seating was awful. We were sitting on wood frames and there was no cushions left on the weak benches we were seated at. For the price of the food, I would expect some better seating. Plus the music was so loud we couldn’t hear each other talk. I would not recommend

It was my sister s birthday and we wanted to celebrate in a cute ambiance for cute pics. KAI was definitely the cutest and the staff was very nice and attentive. The hostess was absolutely so amazing and sweet. The waitress was nice. Drinks had long wait times but server kept us updated. Now the food… do not go there if you’re hungry. Sesame chicken was not good. Dark meat with no flavor and small portion. The pepper appetizer was yummy. The asparagus was just ok and that’s really all I ate. My friends said the food was overall “okay” and they would be stopping to get something to eat on their way home. Drinks were pretty good. But the location and decor was amazing! Beautiful place!

Service was terrible and mentioned it to wait staff and nothing changed. Said it was a birthday and no attention was received. Our waitress was very nice though and food was good but teeny tiny portions. Not worth your money.

I found out about this restaurant through TikTok, so a friend and I decided to check it out. Reading previous reviews, we didn’t expect much in regards to food. However, we were pleasantly surprised. It is definitely worth checking out.

I love the decor and I'm glad they kept our table even though we were late due to the parking disaster. I think they need to fix the parking situation or have complimentary valet.

Greetings and Thank you for providing us with feedback. We completely understand that it can be difficult to find parking during busy weekends. I do want to let you know that we do indeed offer complimentary Valet for our guests. It is located on the corner of Windrose Avenue & Worth Street in front of Toulouse. It is complementary as long as you are visiting any of the three Lombardi Family Concepts here in Legacy West: Kai, Taverna, or Toulouse. We look forward to your next visit.
