I had been to this place about 3 years back. The first time to be quite honest with low expectations. It turned out to be amazing, fresh and memorable. Went back last night. Still great service and great food! I love their organic miso soup and coco loco roll! 🙌🏼

This was recommended to us and it didn't disappoint. If you love sushi this place is a must. The sushi rolls are fabulous! On the night we were there a very talented musician was playing live music. Great night!

We visited this last year and the food and service were both great. On a return visit this year, I was disappointed in the food and slowness of the service. Our server was fine, but something was amiss in the kitchen. There were two large parties, but we were a party of two with alot of time between drinks and... More

We enjoyed our food here, and the quality of the food was pretty solid. But it's definitely catering toward people who want specialty rolls. If you just want a tuna roll, I think they'll charge you $10, which is kind of steep.

We had a magnificent dinner with fantastic service! The menu was varied, and all dishes from appetizers to entrees were delicious. The sake selection was great, as well. We will definitely return to Kaiyo for dinner during our next trip to the Keys.

We happen upon this place last minute and it was a great choice. Both indoor and outdoor seating. service was great. Sat right away. All our food was delicious and i don't think you could make a bad choice. Parking lot was waaaay to small and we couldn't get out. Scary.

Liked the food, service was good though it was their first night trying their new tablet for taking orders. The server explained the delays so we had no problem with it. Didn't slow down the service. Food was good, server was friendly and attentive despite the new ordering system. Only place we found for sushi so give it a try.... More

Came her a few times for take out sushi rolls and it was some of the best sushi we have ever had. We have 3 littles and one is always crashing during dinner, so to be kind to other diners we got them to go. Have to call right at 5 and they had time (we had tried calling later... More
