We had a most romantic dinner at elements - everything about it was perfect. We had a fabulous table looking out at the remarkable view and it was very private. Our server, Michael, was top notch! The appetizer and main course was a gourmet's delight, but the chocolate dessert was a bit of a let down. We will definitely go back and enjoy this outstanding restaurant on our next visit to Scottsdale! More

Southwest | Chandler, East Valley

This is a "must-go-to" place if you want a special fine-dining treat; it's awesome. I'd give it 10 stars if I could. We've been going there for years and it just keeps getting better. I was able to cut my bison tenderloin with a fork. My wife raved about the Kachk (seafood) and the duck our guest ordered was the best I've ever tasted. Four servers were only a few feet away to assure that we didn't want for anything, and they brought several different 3 or 4-bite fun appetite "teasers" before the meal came, all apparently made with yummy Native American ingredients; a nice, unexpected touch. The wine choices are incredible and range from about $40 to $10,000 a bottle (something for everyone). Wine is also available by the glass. The staff was so courteous and friendly that you'd think they had known us all our lives. Our car had been brought curbside when we left and the card and gift left on the dashboard was another nice surprise touch. Kai is a little bit pricey, although not as pricey as some fine dining restaurants in the city, but well worth it for it's exceptional quality, uniqueness, and service. I sound like an employee, but I'm not; just a very happy customer (again). More

Always a wonderful experience here. Not only is the food amazing and terrific, it is served hot and fresh at the proper temperatures, and the staff are quite pleasant here and friendly as well. Worth the trip if you would like authentic Indian cuisine! You may adjust your personal individual "spiciness preference" to your liking, so don't be afraid to check it out. More
