Authentic sushi, low key atmosphere.

Several sushi restaurants within 15 miles, this one is best. Great food, great value. Traditional standby dishes as well as gourmet sushi available. Other sushi restaurants in the area more expensive, but not worth paying more than Kai Lana.

We use to love going there but the last 4 times we've gone the service has been terrible. The staff seems scattered and irritated to bring out your food. Not impressed with the food or service anymore.

I had sushi here a while back and don't remember much about it, so it couldn't have been bad. Today, however, I went for early dinner with a friend and ordered the tempura dinner. Now, I've had tempura before and enjoyed it, but this was a whole lot of very bland tempura. It was shrimp and veggies. It all tasted... More

We ate here two times and enjoyed everything we tried. I loved the Hot Nights roll. Miso was really good. Service was prompt and friendly. Only praise, no complaints of any kind.

I have been to Kai Lana many times; it is my favorite sushi restaurant. There is inside and outside dining areas. I enjoy eating outside because of the relaxing atmosphere. I would definitely recommend this for anyone visiting Atascadero.

Went to Kai Lana the first night, it had been a long train ride down. I had an order of albacore sushi and a tuna roll as well as a Shapiro, it came to about $20. The food arrived timely served by a very friendly staff. I eat a lot of sushi and Kai Lana's was one of the best.... More

This is a great hybrid sushi bar/restaurant. They have some excellent lunch specials and some excellent artisan sushi rolls.

I'm here at least once a week. My family and I love coming here. The staff is amazing and the chefs are always having us sample something new. I can't wait to try there other restaurant once it's open.
