Kai means "seed" in the Pima language—signifying the past, reverence for nature, and belief in the land as an eternal provider. Both the cozy indoor dining area and outdoor patio offer amazing views of our lush fairways and the Sonoran Desert. The subdued modern décor is accented by unique art pieces from the Pima and Maricopa cultures. Live musical performances by a Native American artist are the perfect accompaniment to your dinner Thursday through Saturday evenings.
From start to finish, your meal will take you on a journey through flavor profiles that bring an enhanced appreciation of the local culture. Begin with a refreshing salad of locally farmed greens or Gila River citrus and chile-glazed sea trout, then whet your appetite with a suckling pig torta. Choose from phenomenal main courses such as local pecan-crusted Colorado lamb, saffron-poached Spanish turbot, or tribal buffalo grilled tenderloin. Don't forget to leave room for a heavenly Mexican chocolate soufflé.
Select a wine to pair with your dinner or allow our sommelier to recommend a bottle. We also offer a selection of signature cocktails, including the smoky-sweet Mesquite Bean, featuring Maker's Mark, mesquite bean syrup, and grapefruit juice, or the Kai Mojito, with 10 Cane Rum, lime and cucumber juice, and crushed mint.
Two distinct dining spaces are perfect for private parties of up to 32 guests. The seasonal patio may also be reserved for a private event.
