We were visiting Central CA for vacation and our friends with us suggesting going out for Chinese food. I had never been to a restaurant that served dishes family-style and I was not aware that this was one of them. So I was pleasantly surprised when these large dishes came out and took up all of our table space. It... More

We enjoyed an excellent Chinese meal, as fine and authentic as any meal we had in China. Service also top notch.

The food is too sweet, definite not authentic. We are the only Chinese there. The white couple who sit next to us came in 10 minutes after us, and got all their food 15 minutes before us. Terrible experience.

This little hole in the wall is amazing. Thank goodness Mr. Pickle Sandwich shop was closed because that's where we were headed. Saw Lily Kai and said Chinese sounds good so we went in. Amazing, just amazing. We had the Wonton Soup, small, thank goodness our server said it was more then enough for both of us, which it was.... More

Awesome fresh Chinese food! Fast service. Dining area fills fast and a bit crowded but well worth the food!!! Our favorite Chinese !!! I always make a reservation so I don't have to wait. It is a popular spot!!! Reasonably priced and lots of food.

I typically eat lunch here 2 days per week-take out to office. Food is always fresh and flavorful. Curry Lamb is always good as is the Wah Won Ton Soup. Lunch entries include rice of your choice, soup and egg roll. A great value for a lot of food.

I absolutely love this place. Everything is super fresh, and they use an abundance of fresh veggies! You normally never see that at a chinese food restaurant!

Eating at a Chinese restaurant can be a mixed experience. My first meal at Lily Kai was unimpressive, but this last time we dined, the food was wonderful. I had broccoli chicken and my husband had a lamb dish. We were amazed at the freshness of the vegetables, which were cooked just the right amount, crisp, not soggy, all of... More

Very modern setting with nice décor. Staff is efficient but not gracious. Hot and sour soup reasonably priced for a large quantity, but an unusual recipe. Spring rolls were a bit too dry. Main dishes were huge and very tasty. Steamed rice was well cooked and also a generous portion. All of our dishes were quickly served and timed well... More
