Kai! If you are a foodie and enjoy spectacular and creative food, served with artistry and surrounded by amazing views…Kai is the place! Kai is rated by OpenTable as one of the Top 10 Restaurants in the Country! It is also the only Forbes 5 Star and AAA 5 Diamond Restaurant in Arizona.
There is so much that is fabulous, that it’s hard to explain it all. You really just have to experience it! The service is truly superb and not only will they explain the menu, but you’ll get a little Arizona history lesson as a bonus.
The little touches are really impactful too! The menu covers are all adorned with original watercolor artwork. The curtains will all swish open as if a symphony orchestra conductor has lifted his batton to instruct the staff. We could go on and on, but we hate to give too many of the surprises away…you’ll love experiencing it all, including the little surprises. Even the dishes have little surprises and that’s how they’ll describe some of the menu and they are right!
We aren’t food critics and don’t know all the perfect vocabulary words to describe all that we enjoyed, but we can tell you it’s the best dining experience we’ve ever had. The way the food is served by staff, plated, the combination of flavors, the wine decanters, the options of dishes. I really wish the Chef had come out at the end of the meal so we could give a proper standing ovation.
When you visit, I hope your view is as amazing as the view we had. Not only the best sunset and mountain views, but we enjoyed a little lightning storm at the finish of our chocolate souffle.
For more information, visit their website – Kai. They are located in Chandler, in the Sheraton Wildhorse Pass Hotel, which will be where I hope to spend my next Staycation! The hotel and grounds looked fantastic! If you’re thinking the drive is too far, the restaurant does partner with a car service and you can arrange transportation very easily. We enlisted an Uber and it was only about $50 one way from North Scottsdale and that was well worth it!
