Our Story

Welcome to Kai Sushi & Dining, located in the heart of Santa Fe. We are a family-owned and operated sushi restaurant dedicated to bringing the authentic flavors of Japan to your plate.

Our journey began in 2011 with Pak and Nari, two sushi enthusiasts from Las Vegas, whose passion and quality standards laid the foundation for what Kai Sushi & Dining is today. In 2016, Sara and Zolo took the ownership, Sara brings her expertise in French and Japanese cuisines, while Zolo is formally trained at the Tokyo Sushi Academy in Japan. Their leadership has since drawn a team of exceptional chefs, including Taka Ayamoto, Buddy, Aku, Damien, Nomi, and Donna, each contributing to our collective mission of culinary innovation and excellence.

At Kai Sushi & Dining, we’re all about providing a unique and delicious dining experience. Our skilled chefs create amazing sushi using fresh ingredients from certified vendors, ensuring a delightful taste in every bite. Whether you’re into classic nigiri and sashimi or inventive rolls, we’ve got something to please your taste buds. Our menu goes beyond sushi, offering tasty appetizers, grilled, fried, and steamed dishes, and delicious noodles. We have vegetarian and gluten-free options too, so everyone can enjoy Kai Sushi’s flavors. Plus, we have a great selection of sake, beer, and wine to go with your meal.

Welcome to Kai Sushi & Dining, where every dish is made with love!

Happy Customers

“Great Sushi! Awesome Ambiance!”

“Best sushi in the state of New Mexico! THey do it right here! No pink, sugar-laden ginger. Top ingredients only. Amazing fish! Might as well be sea side in land-locked New Mexico!!”

“Hallelujah! Gluten free sushi in Santa Fe!”

“Not just “we have tamari sauce.” Gluten free items marked directly on their menu (so are vegetarian, cooked, and spicy.) Ngiri prep area is dedicated gluten free. Staff is knowledgeable about Celiac specifically.”
