As of August 18, 2017 Kai Sushi has closed down. Will reopen as a different restaurant. Sad, this was one of our favorite Maui restaurants (we live here most of the year). Far less crowded than Sansei with better service.

Sushi was excellent but service and ambience was just OK. I expect more from the Ritz Carlton and the prices charged.More

Opens only from monday - thursday and you have to make a reservation before at the concierge. The prices are high but the sushi is really on a top level. If you're a Sushi gourmet it's worth to go

Nice selection of sushi on the menu here. We are at the bar and it was a bit tight but the hostess said we'd be waiting 2 hours otherwise.

We sat at the sushi bar and ordered specialty sushi rolls and we even asked the sushi chef to create a unique roll, which he did!!! Had a bottle of wine and all was reasonably priced! Service was excellent
