We went to Sushi Kai expecting good quality since we remembered that it always had a great sushi. And for our surprise they kept their quality for more than 3 years now. It is the best sushi option in San José without a doubt. My only complaint is that the sushi was to big to fit in my mouth!!! Which... More

Love the atmosphere here. Everything is always really fresh. If you are looking for cheap california rolls this is not your place. This is a true sushi restaurant.

I had only heard about Sushi Kai and how good it was and the reviews are spot on. The service was excellent too. We shared sushi and then ordered a pizza that was excellent. I will definitely be back.

My husband and I went there for the first time based on a food blogger's review. It was good and inventive. The tuna was very fresh which we loved. Being from Phoenix, we have eaten a lot not-fresh tuna. We had a few other rolls that were fun and different. If you like spicy, ask for a side of Siracha.... More

I found the food just ok. Not the worst but not "good". The outside seating was a bit odd, it seemed almost like they were setting up for a party or something. Service was OK. Wouldn't go back.

I went here on a Wednesday night with a friend to see a band. The band, "Los Ajenos" was an excellent cover band playing a wide variety of latin rock, pop and their own music. The environment was fun and friendly and the service was great. If you are in Santa Ana some evening looking for something to do I... More

My wife and I had lunch at Sushi Kai and we are looking forward to going back. This has to be one of the best sushi restaurants in the America's. Fresh fish never tasted so good and the presentation was beautiful. My favorite was sashimi octopus with a very thin slice of lime on it. Fantastic! The restaurant is about... More
