Kaiili's is a very small (just a half dozen tables inside) comfortable restaurant. The food is Hawaiian. The owners are Islanders, during the growing season they use herbs and vegetables out of their two large gardens, food is fresh and well prepared. We have been going off and on for many years and have never been disappointed. The Chicken teriyaki... More

Kaiili's is a very nice comfortable restaurant. The food is Hawaiian. We had the teriyaki chicken and a rib eye. Both were really nice. No alcohol here. No wine. No beer. But the food is great.

We decided to go to this place for the wife's birthday. We were greeted and seated at a nice window location. Our order was delicious. We will be going back again.

We came here for a Christmas function and had the whole place to our party. It was intimate and the owners spent time with us asking questions and clarifying orders. The Poke was the best part of the appertisers which we had pot stickers and cake noodles. The main course I felt I was at a buffett. I tried the... More

We happened across this little restaurant in Santa Clara and what a great meal. True Hawaiian menu and the food was fantastic! Had the fish and Teriyaki chicken. Don't miss the Coconut Dream desert!

We were very excited to try Ka'ili's. We entered and weren't greeted for some time. There was only one other table there. We ordered. The food came out and the rice was cold...ice cold. Fresh out of the refrigerator. I had the teriyaki beef. If was flavored good but a little tough. The rice was amazing if you like cold... More

This is a small family owned business. The facility will seat about 20 maximum. It is in an older Pioneer home that has been carefully renovated so it is modern, but still has the pioneer flair. I think we were served by the owner and a son. We just dropped in on them for lunch with a family group of... More

Santa Clara is a small town in Utah that's a suburb of Saint George. You'll find Ka'ili's Restaurant on Old Route 91 in a quaint, repurposed home on the West side of Santa Clara's Historic District. These are homes and buildings that have mostly been in the town for a half a century or more. I surprised my group by... More

I work for this place and if you ever eat here and find something a little bit lacking, please let me know and I will rectify it and make your dining experience great. It is authentic Polynesian food and a great atmosphere to dine in.

My wife and I have had lunch there twice in the last six months. I tried the noodle cake with pork which comes with a Hawaiian sweet and sour sauce. It was so good I had to have it again. My wife and cousin had a salad with ahi tuna on it and both loved the dish. The owner, who... More
