After a Tesla crashed into the Kai Lana Restaurant building in North Atascadero, Kai-Lana moved their staff and menu down to join Kochi in the middle of town. You can go to Kochi and get the Kai Lana menu or the Kochi menu, or both. It is a terrific Fusion of a Japanese restaurant and a Korean restaurant. I can... More

Was/is fantastic, however, relocated to Kochi. A car crashed into the building. Apparently I have to write more, although all I needed to say has been written.

Three words. Garlic Albacore Roll Take an albacore roll, and then put loads of crispy fried garlic on top. Sure, its probably not authentic, but man, is it tasty. All of their rolls are really good and they can also substitute cucumber on many of them instead of rice for those that are watching carbs. They have cooked rolls for... More

Great, fresh food every time! Love the baked dynamite. Good for lunch or dinner, like the patio. I'm not a huge sushi fan, but I've always liked every roll I've gotten her.

We were looking for a good asian place for dinner and we came across Kai Lana. It didn't have a lot of parking place but parking on the side/by the curb was safe and i guess, acceptable. We had the agedashi tofu, and the tempura california roll. Although the tofu was a bit bland, we did enjoy the tempura california... More

I have been to this restaurant on multiple occasions. The fish is fresh and the service is good. I just wish they had more variety of rolls to choose from. The Udon is ok, I just wish they made it with meat. I would have to rate this the best sushi place in Atascadero.

We were visiting Atascadero from Oregon today and decided to try the local sushi. We started with Green Tea, Edamame and Pork Gyoza. The Gyoza were fried a bit crisp for my liking. I prefer them steamed or very lightly fried. The Edamame were perfectly prepared. We enjoyed two cut sushi rolls. The first was the 9/11 roll and the... More

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.
