Watch out for this place!!! Lily Kai engages in deceptive and deceitful business practices. The staff presents you with a "lunch menu" with a lower set of prices and then deceptively lures you into ordering "a la carte" which is, in fact, the "dinner menu"...More

We were a party of four enjoyed and our meal at the Lily Kai. Food was excellent, although I made a poor choice it was still tasty and plentiful. Early evening so lacking in atmosphere but service attentive without being pushy and reasonably priced.

It's taken 15 years and many attempts but we have finally found a Chinese restaurant in the US that produces great food, with clean tastes, sensible salt levels, fresh ingredients and that has great service. Lily Kai is a spacious welcoming eatery on the edge...More

We visited on a weekday evening and the place was pretty quiet. The food and service were very good though. And the view is great for a Chinese restaurant.
