My husband and I had a wonderful dinner at Kaiyo a few weeks ago while on vacation in Islamorada. The food was outstanding, and the black grouper dish I got was one of the best dinners I've had in years! Thanks to Kaiyo Grill for a wonderful evening!

There are signs warning you about the time it takes for the cook to make you food - it's true it takes some time so don't go there if you're in a rush. That being said, I always feel relief to see someone actually preparing my food - at least you're not eating frozen food. And I think that Kaiyo... More

I am usually very picky about my sushi, but I was on vacation and decided to try kaiyo grill. It had great reviews and now I know why. The waitress was very attentive and gave great recommendations! I will come here every time I'm in the keys! My favorite was the pineapple hogfish with mango sauce.

They don't do take out. Wanted to bring sushi to my friends and family via take-out. Went with a friend and told the hostess we would like to sit at the bar and each order a drink and then order take out. We were told there was no room at the bar and that they don't do take out. Wow,... More

My husband and I went here for dinner and it will be our last. The quality of the food is poor. My husband got the crusted chicken: dry, dry dry. The chicken was dry, the rice was dry and plain, and the veggies were dry. He only ended up eating just the one chicken. The soup of the day tasted... More

Ate here twice while on vacation. Very good sushi. Nice mahimahi. Reasonable prices. Left stuffed. No room for dessert. Go early if you don't have reservations - it was quite full by 7 PM

We enjoyed the dining experience immensely. The wine selection offered some interesting international choices. We selected one that paired well with our chosen dishes of crab cakes and yellowtail. The service was excellent. Definitely would return on our next trip to the Keys.

Small and casual, the sushi and fresh seafood here was simply excellent. No views to speak of, but the food is well worth the visit.
