we were looking for good Japanese food and sushi. This place looked nice located in high end mall. So we went in, very disappointed. Sushi was cut so thin and the quality was not special, Udon noodle soup was ok, the one thing we like...More

If you are into fine sushi - pass. If you really are dying for sushi and need a fix - it's ok - nothing special or fancy. A bit over priced - maybe we are spoiled in LA

We have stayed in Wailea several times. We always enjoy at least one meal at Kai. They are accommodating to our 5, 3, and 1-year-olds. The child's plate has several things, so even a picky kid shouldn't go hungry. If they do, you can always...More

We chose Kai because it was within walking distance of our resort and there are other shops around it. The food was good, and the service was attentive & friendly. They have a large selection on their menu so there is something for everyone.

Nice ambiance , great sashimi but the rolls were mushy and did not taste very good. Definitely does not live up to the hype. Try Sushi Paradise or Sansei if you're looking for better quality.

My husband and I went to the restaurant with another couple. The atmosphere was nice, and the service was great. I've never had raw fish before but everything on the menu was fantastic.

We went to Kai on a suggestion. It was possibly the worst dinner we have ever had in Maui. We should have left before we ordered when our server spilled my husbands drink all over him. The food was ridiculously overpriced, even by Maui standards...More
