Voted the ‘Best Chinese’ in London by Harden’s Guide 2009 and recently awarded the Michelin Star, Kai Mayfair combines warm and attentive service in surroundings that whisper luxury- perfect for ‘romance or business’







‘Beccleuch Estate Sirloin with black pepper, garlic flakes and sliced Chinese croissant’ ‘Steamed Chilean Sea bass Fillet, Chopped Snow Leaf topped with Shrimp Crumble’ are examples of Kai’s modern approach to Chinese cooking. The style is fresh and innovative but never forgetting it’s true Chinese roots.

The food is nice for a Chinese family, but the service and ambiance is below the anticipation. The attitude of waiters are much nicer than waitresses.

Absolutely fantastic meal to celebrate the in-laws Ruby Wedding Anniversary. The food was amazing as was the champagne & wine. It was a really lovely touch that Kai's presented a 'happy anniversary' plate. Beautiful.

Mayfair disaster.
Pleasant, even posh, surroundings and courteous table service were ruined by poor and very expensive food. It was tepid and swimming in grease. For that quality, just 2 dishes, 1 portion of rice and a pot of jasmine tea I paid £90. As President Trump would say, very bad!

The food was beyond great. Duck and tiger prawns were amazing as were the desserts! Wine list was also good and worth checking out.

Make a trip to this gem in Mayfair!

Holiday in London, one of our favorite restaurants in London. Every visit to Kai is a culinary experience with flavors that are beyond imagination. If you miss going to Kai when in London, you’ve missed one of the truly memorable meals of a lifetime.

The restaurant is a disgrace to Chinese cuisine. It is the first time that I write a comment and the only reason is that the Kai is too bad. Any restaurants, namely, in China town outperform this one taking the price into considerations.

When sitting down, no one is serving you. After two requests, the food menu is finally provided. The two dishes I order are sold out. Please don't open reservation for 8:30 if insufficient food is prepared. Last but not the least, the restaurant counts one dish twice in the bill and it is only found out after payment. Even KFC would not do such a thing. The restaurant is worth no star. After the dinner, the waiter bring our coats incorrectly twice.

Please don't go to this one and trust me. The food they provide is not authentic. The ma-po tofu is sweet jeez.

Visited Kai after around 2 years. Location in Mayfair is prime. Food was good , service very good but ambience so and so. Restaurant with basement space doesn’t help. Nice overall dinner date but not in my top picks.
