    Best Sushi you will ever put in your mouth. They have a care for the quality of ingredients far beyond any restaurant I know of. Everything is thoughtfully put together to balance the flavors and bring the fish to the for front of your taste buds. Eat here and you will never be able to go back to avg sushi !

    Amazing 18 course meal with each bite creating a memory. They seem to use the most fresh and high end ingredients from otoro, chu toro, truffles, and caviar. Don't come here if you intend to leave full.

    Sushi Kai is one of the Top Sushi Restaurants I have been to in the New York/New Jersey area. By far the Quality of the food was beyond reproach. The quality of the service provided was again beyond reproach. The Quality, Quantity, and services contained far surpassed expectations. The price was on point. Very inexpensive for what you receive. I will certainly be back the next time I am in town. This place needs more than a 5 star rating!!

    Chef is great,who is fun and artistic. We had 18 courses, which were scallop, uni and fat tuna texture was delicious. However, the rest of the nigiri was too simple to be this price

    Best sushi omakase in town. We’ve tried several Michelin-star Omakase in NYC and in Japan - and this one is by far the best in terms of creativity, quality / taste and value. Highly recommend this place. We’ve been to this place twice so far and each time has been an absolute pleasure. And, it’s BYOB!

    I came here for my birthday and really loved that it ended up just being my friend and I at the counter. We were greeted warmly from the getgo and had a great convo with the chef throughout the meal. Personally, I also just loved the music selection because it was music I recognized and added to the total ambience. Would absolutely recommend coming here. (They are BYOB, so be sure to bring your own if you want a good pairing)

    We returned to Sushi Kai when we heard the head chef changed and what a great change indeed!!! Quality, taste, service and everything in between were back to normal and close to perfection as it were before when Sushi Kai first opened few years back. Great move & we are so glad!!! Now we can continue to go back over & over!

    Quality of the food was amazing. You can tell from the first bite that the food and preparation is on an elevated level compared to restaurants around the area. Wait staff was attentive. Top 3 of any dining experience I’ve had and best sushi I have ever had.

    I've been everywhere in the TriState area for sushi. High end sushi in NYC and in Jersey, nothing beats this place. I've been here a dozen times and always impresses. This is a "No Brainer" if you want impeccable service paired with Unbelievable Sushi. I will continue to comeback!

    Highly recommend! I went here with my boyfriend as a special occasion and the food there was delicious! All the seafood tasted fresh and the atmosphere was great. Not to mention the absolute skill of the chefs as they made the sashimi in front of us! They truly knew how to put on a show and made the experience worthwhile! Not to mention how friendly they were on top of their talent we were able to have a conversation with one of the chefs afterwards! If you are looking for a place to go to if you want to celebrate a special occasion or even just splurg some cash I highly recommend!

    My family went to Sushi Kai for my son’s birthday. I was initially a little skeptical about an omakase restaurant opened by a non-Asian. Skepticism gone. We had a fantastic and memorable meal. The flavors were not so traditional in a good way. Really inventive flavors. Attentive service with a friendly staff. Will definitely go again. For $155 a person it’s not cheap, but very much worth the money.

    Overall Fort Lee Sushi Kai is a first rate omakase culinary experience. Great ambiance with a sort of Manhattan-esque sheik vibe to it. Chill loungy tunes play in the background complementing the just subdued enough lighting to make this a great date spot. The service is fantastic with your wine and water glasses seemingly magically filled at all times by the attentive yet unobtrusive stylish server. The dishes are eclectic and creative. The seafood fresh, succulent, and delicious. The attention to detail, especially in preparation of each piece, is second to none with every piece tender and flavorful. Be aware though, even though its BYOB you'll be paying Manhattan prices.

    Been to Sushi Kai about 5 times. Previously Sushi Kai was known for the searing of fatty tuna and wagyu beef. They no longer offer this to the customers. But instead offer 19 courses. Quality was good but nothing exciting.
