I carry out from here on the way back from work every now and then. It's great if I want sushi or chinese food. My favorites are chicken in lettuce cups and eggplant in garlic sauce since you can't find them in other places. The sushi is very delicious too, and the staff is super nice. I like the ambiance, but just a little more light would be great.
I seriously never write reviews on restaurants because I just don't have the time, but this time it was so bad I had to write one. Kite's food was not only not very good but also pretty expensive compared to other places we usually order from. The sesame chicken was basically little pieces of chicken (not sure what type) fried in a bright red sauce (I am scared to know what was in it that made it bright red), the other dishes we got basically gave us all indigestion. We order out A ...view moreLOT and know good asian food, and this was definitely not good. I do not recommend this place.view less
Excellent food, definitely not the best ever, but probably the best food for the money bar none.... Service is always good, and somehow this hidden gem hasn't drawn a crowd yet. As stated in other reviews, never a wait for a table. \r
Sushi is definitely good here, and the moo-shu pork is delicious!
I've been to Kite several times on Friday or Saturday nights and have never waited for a seat. It's never crowded. I'm not sure why it doesn't draw a big crowd, I guess it's not trendy enough. But the sushi is good (especially the double tuna roll), the Mai Tais are AWESOME and it's pretty reasonably priced. It's not the best sushi I've ever had, but it's pretty good. Don't forget to finish off with the Muchi ice cream. Yum.
I also have become a regular customer since Kite moved into the neightborhood. The sushi is great, and the service is top notch. They easily made accomodations for our large group, and there is a cute little outdoor seating area for nice nights.
Since Kite has moved into the neigborhood earlier this year, my girlfriend and I have become regular customers because of the food, atmosphere and service. I have tried most of the items on the menu and haven't found anything I didn't like with sushi being an added bonus. The two owners of the restaurant are always very friendly and make sure to stop by and chat at our table. Delivery and take-out are always quick.
