The location is good, with ample parking, and the staff is very nice. We enjoy sitting at the sushi bar, and watching the chefs prepare all the wonderful, tasty fish. The menu has many choices to offer, and the special rolls are very good. Sometimes the service can be a little slow, but I would not discourage anyone from making... More

This was one of the worst Japanese meals I've ever had. Nothing really good here. Strictly run-of-the-mill strip mall Japanese food.

Sushi at Dana Kai Japanese Restaurant was ok.. Good dinner but not good value. Service was fine, the oysters good but the sushi was average and expensive.

Excellent sushi! Better prices than I expected for the area. I wish we lived closer, as I would be here weekly if I could. The staff was super friendly and attentive.

Thus area has a great deal of culinary competition. This food was honestly really good. I have lived in orange county forever and haven't stopped at Kai until now. I'm happy and I'll come again

The Burrito was very good!!! Sake was not! Rolls are not anything to die for but overall a good value.

This spot has been an impeccable Japanese dining experience since the very 1st visit.The quality is consistently A+ everytime I visit(Not an avid frequent flyer here as much as I'd dream of to be^) due to my hectic schedule,so the consistency of their dedication towards a fine Japanese dining is clearly obvious with my inconsistent times of scheduling of visits...
