The restaurant was not busy but our appetizer crab rangoon came out with the main course and cool. I asked for extra spicy on the curry chicken but the waiter brought out the red sauce to add on later. Food had no flavor but it did come out hot.

Walked into the bar because they were running 15 minutes behind on our reservation. Bar was covered with half filled & empty glasses, dirty plates and food particles scattered everywhere. Bartender was nice but this should not be the 1st thing you see when walking in. Service was terrible. We waited for just about everything. Food was fair - nothing exceptional as advertised. Waiter was more interested in cleaning up the tables and resetting them so he could go home instead of waiting on us. Please note that we were there at 8pm and the restaurant closes at 9:30 so we weren't holding anyone up.

I really enjoyed the Sushi Kai. The food was great and the prices were extremely reasonable. Ana from Serbia was our waiter and she was too good to be true. Anyway a great time for both of us and definitely will be going back soon.

Stick to the Chinese...much better than the sushi. Salt & Pepper Prawns were good. So is the whole sole fish. The sushi was just ok. The rolls were poor. The nigiri were small.

Great for sushi and other Asian dishes. My favorite sushi is the seven star roll, but the other rolls with tempura soft shell crab shrimp are also delicious. They have small bowls of hot and sour soup, miso, and egg drop, but we opted for the wonton soup. They say it serves four, but we were two hungry girls and it was tasty and plentiful. Then we had our sushi and we were stuffed. On the menu are many regular noodle dishes, chicken and pork dishes, and seafood dishes. We have never been disappointed here. The staff is very attentive and eager to please.

I made a reservation at sushi Kai for my boyfriend and I on open table, before I told them I had a reservation they said were fully booked up. So I told them I had a reservation. Our reservation was at 7. We got there at 655. She said "oh well it's not til 7" it's like they didn't want us to eat there. They were Very rude. When I got inside the place was completely empty, 1 table. The Food was okay, defiantly over priced and By the time we left there was only 2 more tables that came. The place was completely empty. I do not recommend going there.

Food was good.
Hostess attitude not so much, we were told that there was no available tables, and I saw empty tables and bar sits open, we practically begged to give us a seat, coz we just wanted to eat. Hostess said: "it is Reservation only trough Open Table and they are all booked! " S
o, I said:: really? what do u want me to make this reservation? Which didn't make any sense to me, as if u have table why ask us to reserve it. So, practically in front of her I did make reservation, in 10 min and there were more times open.
SO, I come, and say: we have reservation. She was SADLY surprised, and said that will call to manager to find out if they can accommodate us and how to handle this situation. on the top of 15min spent there already we spend another 15 waiting for them to call and do I have no idea what. Eventually we were given place at the bar. Later I noticed that they had multiple tables open. So, this is the attitude...

Pan Fried Noodles over sauced and got soggy.

Waiter didn't ask if we wanted rice.

Sizzling black pepper chicken didn't sizzle at all - poor presentation as the platter wasn't big enough to hold all of the fish.

Suchi was excellent.

We had very high expectations for this restaurant and they were definitely not met. Service was very poor, we had to track a waiter as nobody came to our table....there were not many people there, so it can't be because he was too busy. They ambience is like a cafeteria. Our view was of a huge wine rack and boxes. The half booth was built for midgets and was not at all comfortable.

But.....the food was very, very good. It is still worth going there for the food...just do not have any expectations of getting treated special by the wait staff.

This was our third visit to Sushi Kai and we we chose Sushi Kai for our last dinner at Harrah's Lake Tahoe before going home the next day. The Sushi quality is excellent, really fresh! The rolls are delicious and are beautiful to look at. On all three visits we have had exceptional service, excellent food and a very pleasant overall experience. We will definitely visit Sushi Kai again!

The food was unacceptable. The prawns were covered in flour, fried and then mushy flour. Disgusting. The sushi roll was so dry it was difficult to chew, the seaweed was rubbery and difficult to chew. Amazing how a meal could be so inedible.

The 3 of us ordered a black bean chicken soup dish that serves 4 and was 45 usd. It was so bad that we hardly touched it, and some of the chicken looked raw. Fortunately, we had each also ordered a sushi roll. Those were fine. They forgot to put our soup on to heat so we had to wait awhile. The waiter apologized. Then he had to apologize again for the delay. He could see that we hardly touched that big pot of soup. He just kind of smiled as if to empathize but did not offer anything, such as free dessert. We were very dissatisfied with this place.

 (Tahoe)·Dined on September 3, 2016

We dine at Sushi Kai at least once per visit to Tahoe. Sometimes 2 times a stay. We were looking forward to this meal and were very disappointed in the food. We order pretty much our same favorite items each time. The items were different in appearance and taste. There was no flavor what so ever in any of the 4 items we ordered. I mean zero. Not even the flavor of soy sauce could redeem our meal. The saving grace was the sushi we ordered. The hostess and wait staff were excellent as always. We were told there was going to be a menu change this week. We will look forward to trying it in the near future with hopes that the experience will be much more satisfying.

If you just simply want to go someplace where you can't be found, this is the place. Great for secret agents. It's as hidden as you ever want to be. Good luck trying to find this place.

When you go often enough to see what the overall performance as one, as two friends, as two to four for business, as a very special occasion for two and when parties of 8 to 23 are brought you can understand I give this restaurant 4.5/5 stars for overall rating. The food preparation after losing "Smiley" a top chef to NOBU Restaurant in Las Vegas has not suffered, that the General Manager Alice Alexander has the staff to continue with great results that we will return in three weeks for another celebration! Please note our table of eight except for Martina and I were all Caesar's Seven Stars and they all remarked this was successful dining experience.

Our server was really nice but we ordered pot stickers as an appetizer and she forgot them.
It worked out fine as the meal was enough but I was looking forward to trying them. Food was really good. I was expecting the California rolls to be better; if I had to do it again, I would leave off the sesame seeds.

Don't understand some of the negative reviews...we had a great experience. The service was fast and friendly. The sushi rolls were great and on par with many other sushi rolls I have had all over the US. We also had the Mongolian Beef Dish and it was also fresh and delicious. The atmosphere was fun and modern and we had a great time.

I've read mixed review about this restaurant and decided to try for myself.

This restaurant is a disgrace against other sushi restaurants, and is nothing but a Chinese Restaurant which is sourcing their sushi from Harrah's buffet on the top floor.

The sushi is skimpy and charging $15.00 for five pieces of Paper thin Salmon Sashimi which are cut razor thin is ridiculous.

The overall quality of the meal was equal to any sushi tray you can buy at a supermarket.
