Roasted Peking Duck in 2 Courses
Course 1: In addition to the pancakes, cucumber, spring onion & the sweet 'duck sauce', our version is served with a dash of our signature chilli sambal made with red chilies, shallots and yellow bean. Restaurants have their own versions of Peking duck and we wanted to pay homage to chilli oil, a condiment which is a tradition of every table in London's Chinese restaurants. Course 2 (Served with your main course): Duck stir-fried with the classic combination of oyster sauce, shimeji mushrooms, asparagus and sugar snaps
Upscale and lovely decor. Service was alright, could be better. Food was alright but not Michelin star worthy.
Food was very nice but the whole experience was not Michelin’s star worth.
The service was not up to standard of Michelin’s stared restaurant. For example, the main was served when one of us was in the bathroom and plates were removed from our table whilst we were still eating. The whole meal was served by 5 different servers with one person spilling wine on food during pouring.
Really amazing meal the food was out of this world! However we did order to much but we have thankfully taken it home!
Really outstanding dining experience!
If you want to spend a lot of money and get very poor service. This is the place to be going. Good was average for the price and service was very poor. 35 minutes for the table to be cleared after everyone has finished eating. Asked for a taxi to be order and told to wave one down. I asked another waitress who then got me a taxi. Shocking service for a restaurant with a good reputation.
It was my sister’s and my first visit to the Kai Chinese restaurant in Mayfair. I chose the Kai Restaurant to celebrate the launch of my book release. The reception, waitress, waiter, Barman were all very welcoming. The barman knew exactly what we want in our champagne cocktail , the waitress and waiter who took our food orders were very knowledgeable and equally informative, plus they were patient and helpful , we never felt rushed in any way, shape or form when we were ordering. The food arrived at our table quite quickly , but unfortunately the food was still a little cold. Nonetheless the food was delicious and tasty. I would definitely recommend the Kai Chinese restaurant to my family and friends.
Outstanding service and food, will continue to go back
It is by far the best fine Chinese dining we have had.
The Peking Duck was absolutely delicious with the blend of nuts and sauces.
The chicken with chillies was sublime. The dried chillies were beautifully caramelised.
The sweet and sour pork was the best version we have eaten.
Why on earth have I never thought of marinading lamb chops with soy and honey?! I must now.
This is one of my favourite Michelin star restaurant. The food is absolutely amazing. A variety of different dishes and tasty deserts. The staff and expecially the manager was so welcoming and friendly. They knew how to make you feel comfortable and not rush you out in 2 hours. I would definitely recommend kai and will be going back myself
As always, great food even better staff
We went to Kai for our anniversary, and we received the best service and food. It was an incredible experience, truly first class, with fast and efficient service, and the food was exquisite. All the waiters and staff were fantastic and very welcoming, and we will definitely be coming back here again!
Excellent door and very professional yet friendly service. A great meal.
Great service , delicious food. Attentive staff
IMHO Simply the most amazing Chinese food in London, not cheap but worth every penny
An excellent faultless meal! The ambiance downstairs is less clinical than upstairs, so glad we moved - no trouble for the staff who were very accommodating.
All 4 courses were outstanding! Only a small complaint in that starters and 3 of 4 plates were cleared whilst one person was still eating ..thought the meal would be rushed but things settled and as the restaurant filled the atmosphere felt more relaxed
Well worth the 3 year wait!
Great food and service. From start to finish. Very friendly staff
Delicious food, decent portion size & great service.
Excellent food, great service, thoroughly enjoyed dining at Kai
Great food but surrounded by scruffy men in hoddies and baseball caps, made for a bad atmosphere.
Setting in waiting area if customer turn up early
Outstanding food! Great service and the best ambience
Enjoyed our dinner.
Amazing service, helpful and kind staff
Food arrived promptly and was presented impeccably
Calm ambience and atmosphere
Only downside for us was a loud group of 4 next to us but that’s life…
Myself and husband celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary at Kai on the 14/08/2021 the Food was tasty and at the end of our meal we were presented with a lovely mini dessert platter with 10th anniversary on. However there was only one dessert available from a menu of five this was very disappointing for a restaurant of this standard.
Me and the girls had an amazing time at Kai. Staff were extremely accommodating and food was absolutely DELICIOUS!!! I’ll definitely be going back.
Food was excellent, would return again and again. Service was hit and miss. Food service was very fast, friendly waiter. We were seated next to a larger group and felt that we had to wait at times before the next table was served. Had to ask for the bill twice and had items on there that we did not order.
Amazing food and service
another impeccable meal at Kai. The food remains top notch and the service was exemplary as always. remains top of the Chinese joints in the UK
It was good
It wasn’t the experience we expected at all!
The starters were nice but the main dishes and the desert weren’t at the level of a Micheline star restaurant! The chicken was tasteless with a soggy skin on. The prawns weren’t exceptional. The noodles were bland. The cream brûlée was very runny, the crunch was soggy and of a poor taste with chocolate powder dumbed onto it.
Sitting in the basement was stuffy and the staff were quite arrogant. The whole experience was unpleasant and not worth the cost associated with it.
We don’t recommend this restaurant, I am afraid!
Excellent food and experience!
Personal service, great decor and great menu!
Amazing food - wish I had found the restaurant before!
Such a brilliant meal. Service was outstanding, ambience was perfect and food excellent. Stand outs - Wasabi Prawns, Seabass Hotpot, Slow Cooked Pork Belly & Crispy Duck. 100% recommend!
Stuff were lovely and food was amazing ! I would definitely come back .
Had an amazing dinner last night with wife and kids, the food was sensational, the atmosphere was great and the service was faultless. Great experience will be definitely going back there.
Everything was perfect, especially the staff. Enjoyed the evening thoroughly. Will definitely be back soon. Thank you!
