You are paying for the decor and attentive service. Incredibly overpriced food. Will not be returning.

Soft shelled crab same as high street Chinese with a delightful sauce.

Aubergine and shrimp awful. This is a gelatinous thick tongue of solid "minced shrimp" squashed into one skinny aubergine covered with a sweet gooey red sauce. Not nice. Would be embarrassed to serve this at home as shrimp stuffing had the quality of processed soy. Really not worth a Michelin star.

Chicken and cashews, very dry flattened triangles of chicken, cashews and sauce piquant but too thick and gooey.

Cloying sweet desert of caramelised peanuts and elaborate chocolate layered dry biscuit cake did not work.

Unbelievably disappointing lunch at £120. Will be returning to my honest usual Chinese restaurant with real food.

Without a doubt the best chinese restaurant in London. I've visited Kai on several occasions and must say this place always delivers. Sadly the decor is a little dated but if its good food you're after then look no further. Beats Hakkasan hands down!!

Everything we were served tasted good to very good. Perhaps a couple of dishes lacked that extra kick though.

Great service.

Overall slightly pricey... Had the bill been ~15% lower I would have been even happier with the whole experience.

Myself and 3 others went to Kai last night for the first time and all I can say is amazing.

The food was very so tasty and in the meat dishes we ordered the meat was lovely and tender and all the dishes were packed with flavour.

The Staff were very friendly and very polite and constantly watching that we were okay. They were very chatty and and even produced an Ice Cream dessert with a candle and insisted in singing to my Fiance (we were in London to celebrate his Birthday).

I would recommend Kai to anyone just wish they did delivery to my house as no Chinese will come close to how nice this was.
