“Terrible Food”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

I picked up two meals from here a couple nights ago. The food was terrible; the "fried rice" had nothing in it, the egg drop soup was the consistency of a thick jam, and the chicken was soggy. After having 3 bites we threw all the food away. Don't waste your time or money! Even Panda Express is ten times better than this!

“Kai's Kai's Kai's near UNM”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

A short walk from UNM main campus will get you to Kai's. Nice selection for lunch menu. Great lunch prices. I've been coming to Kai's & back in the day was called Kai's Kung Foo Cafe. I don't know if that was official or just the UNM slang name. Way better than a franchised Chinese place. Go local! In any case, this is one of my favorite spots. I've mostly stuck with the lunch menu. This past wk. I had gen. tao's lunch special & last week I had just the stir fried vegetables which were tasty. Whew, the little red chili's had an unforgiving bite. Tip: watch your first step up into restaurant! It's a tiny step but if you don't see it, it can get ya.

“Total let down :(”
Reviewed May 17, 2012

We live next door to this place and it always smells great, but the food was very bland and the service was just so-so.

“Great value”
Reviewed May 12, 2012

Very cheap, fast, made following Chinese tradition but from local ingredients (try the jalapeno chicken with rice). Definitely a hole in the wall, but perfect for lunch.

“Best Chinese food. Ever.”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

Ya know how you are only supposed to be able to get two out of three when it comes to good, fast and cheap...? Well Kai's Chinese Restaurant in Albuquerque really can give you all three. The place doesn't look like much, but what it lacks in decor it more than makes up for in yummy deliciousness!
