My wife and I went to Kai for our wedding anniversary. We chose the later seating. At 9 PM the place was nicely busy. While small it is a very cosy place with several nooks and corners for smaller groups or couples.
For starters we had the pigeon salad and crab with trout caviar. I was a bit nervous about the caviar but the waiter assured me that there was only a small amount of it and he was right! It added some flavour and texture to what was already very tasty crab. The pigeon and salad was also excellent.
Main courses were pheasant casserole and a striploin steak. Again, both were excellent. I found several pieces of shot in my pheasant which some might find offputting but I took it to mean that this was a wild pheasant which met a sudden end by way of a shotgun! Anyway, it was delicious.
Our deserts were a chocolate mousse and ginger cake with whiskey butterscotch sauce. I tried both of them and I would be hard-pressed to pick which one I preferred.
Our delightful evening was enhanced by the helpful, knowledgeable and unobtrusive staff who kept our drinks topped up without intruding, and kept the courses coming. The menu is not in the usual format but describes the tastes and/or ingredients in a dish. I found that this made us choose dishes we might not ordinarily pick, and so encourages people to try new dishes and combinations of flavours.
Highly recommended. I'll be going back asap.
