Kai, meaning 'seed' in the Pima language, is the only AAA Five Diamond/Forbes Five Star restaurant in Arizona. Our Phoenix restaurant features a menu rich in creativity, history and Native American culture. Chef de Cuisine, Ryan Swanson, incorporates the essence of the Pima and Maricopa tribes and locally farmed ingredients from the Gila River Indian Community to create unforgettable masterpieces.
