Kai's is a cozy 50 seat storefront oasis just a few steps away from Na's Thai restaurant. Both are across the street from the old Chanhassen Dinner Theater. We first noticed it last week when we were on our way in for dinner at Na's Thai - which by the way is still excellent. Our expectations were not that high when we walked in a few days later for a late Thursday lunch after a ramble around the Minnesota Arboretum. We started thinking maybe it was going to be ok when we saw just how filled up they were. After a short queue we got seated by the friendly host. She turned out to be our waitress and was super attentive - watching over us for whatever we needed. There is a small sushi bar in the rear. The menu has variety - took a while to decide finally on the $10 Bento box lunch specials. Roxanne for the Sashimi and me for the Salmon. Wow! Miso soup Goyza dumpling pot stickers, 6 pieces of California roll and good sized portions of salmon(with fantastic grilled onions) and sashimi (with kale and white radish). It was all perfect. Excellent food. Very friendly staff. Great service. Very reasonable prices. Money and time well spent. We will be back!
