we had asked for patio seating through pentacle, but when we went there, they did not see it in their records. But they did find a table for the four of us. We were celebrating our daughter's 18th birthday and they bought out some ice cream with a sparkler on the house, which was a wonderful gesture. Alexa was wonderful in her service and the food was exceptional. The drinks were good, though a bit on the expensive side. All in all, a wonderful experience and we will keep going there.

Have been to Kai on numerous occasions. This was special as it was my wife's birthday and Kai is her favorite place. Once again Kai did not disappoint. Everything was wonderful and especially tasty. We splurged on the Royal Roll which is quite the indulgence. It did not disappoint. Kai continues to be one of our favorite places.

We love Kai and we are sushi/restaurant snobs! A great atmosphere with great food and great service. No need to drive to Dallas for “something fancy”, just head to Legacy West, Kai is worth it!

Had wanted to visit for awhile and decided my fiance’s birthday would be a good time and Kai did not disappoint! Sashimi was super fresh and compliments of the chef we had an amazing eggplant dish...everything was perfect (the bathroom situation was a little off (gender neutral) leaving the toilet seats up guys...a little off-putting (it just wasn’t as clean as a ladies room only) but other than that it was perfect.

Took 3 times to make a drink correct. Did not have peeking duck even though I had ordered more than 24 hours in advance. Food was bland. Not worth the money.

We went there for our anniversary and we weren’t disappointed. I’ve had better sushi before, and the short rib had a little too much fat for our taste but it was pretty good overall.

My favorite part was the ambience and atmosphere of the place. The music was on point and the decor and style were sublime.

The hosts and waiters were very nice and accommodating also.

Will return for another roll of sushi and drinks!

Kai has a wonderful patio that is warm even in fall/winter. Decor is beautiful and food is wonderful. Small plates made to order and share. Makes for a great night with family or friends. Highly recommend.

We had poor service. It took them almost 35 mins to even come to our table and only after asking someone. We already had a drink from the bar, so we were fine with drinks, but no one even came to the table. When it was time to get and pay/sign bill also took a tremendous amount of time. Noise, food, atmosphere all 5 stars. Service- 2 stars.

Second try at Kai with another couple. Service was OK and food was tasty but portions were tiny and pricy. There are much better options in the area.

Great food and cocktails in a fabulous atmosphere! The only downside is that the portions are small but the food is delicious. Our server did explain that they are a Asian “tapas” type of restaurant but we were still surprised how small the portions are for the price you pay. I would however go back again! They also have a DJ in the bar area that makes this a fun place for a Friday or Saturday night!

We had a great time. Our waiter recommended some things we wouldn’t have ever ordered and they were fantastic! Try the eggplant, it is
Divine! A great place for a birthday, they really make the guest of honor feel special. The food comes in small portions, but it is delicious. Our waiter was such a gem, he really took care of us

We went to Kai for our Anniversary specifically to try their Chilean sea bass. Unfortunately, the portion size is ridiculously small and the price tag doesn’t include any sides. If you’re looking for chilean sea bass done the right way, fillet style, we would highly recommend Nick’s in Laguna Beach, California. The price is comparable but you’ll receive a larger portion, sides, and the quality and flavor is extraordinary.

The food was amazing, the ambience was beautiful and our server, Charles, was very friendly and knowledgeable of the menu. Everyone was very nice to us the moment we walked in. Wished us “happy anniversary” the moment we walked in and surprised us with complimentary champagne and dessert. Definitely recommending this restaurant to all my friends and will for sure be back for those stuffed jalapeños.
