Kai Mayfair

About Kai Mayfair

If you're fed up of the same old Chinese food book yourself a table at Mayfair's Kai. With a raft of awards to its name, Kai is the last word in inventive Oriental cooking. Behind an interior which owes more than a little to the world of designer boutique you'll find understatedly gorgeous rooms, oozing style yet as welcoming as a favourite friend's dining room. Simple striped upholstery sets off decadent chandeliers while the most classic white tablecloths are a foil to gleaming marble tiles and wrought iron balustrading. Meanwhile the menu offers in equal measure recognisable flavours and exciting new ideas; the very thing which keeps you coming back time and time again.

Sample a la carte


- Tan-jia's lobster broth (a specialty of our chef best described as an oriental interpretation of the classic lobster bisque) £18
- Oriental lamb shank (pulled off the bone, cooked in a 12 ingredient marinade and topped with a rich chicken & garlic crème layer. Lamb shank is often served in very large, filling portions. This however, is an appetiser sized amount designed as a prelude to a fulfilling meal) £14
