We eat here often for lunch or dinner. Miso soup, salad. The teriyaki salmon. The California rolls are great. My favorite are the crispy/spicy tuna rolls. It's a great spot for lunch or dinner. It's kid-friendly. The service is superb.

Kaido is a very local restaurant. It is in a very unassuming strip mall but don't let that stop you from having a really good dinner.
We had gyoza, California roll and the Special. It was a huge plate of fresh sushi of all varieties.

Victor at the sushi bar is great. This is a hole in the wall sushi joint - don't let the decor turn you away. Everything is solidly good. Try the specials on the blackboard. The pepper tuna sushi is great!

Their hot food is also good and you can't beat their weekly lunch specials.

What a delightful surprise lay beyond the suburban facade of Kaido. I enjoyed the Gyoza, Beef Tataki & Chicken Teriyaki Dinner Set served with Miso. The Miso was fully flavoured, the Gyoza were delicious; the Tataki - melted in my mouth & the Terriyaki was chargrilled to perfection. My friends enjoyed several of the sushi & sashimi offerings, all were excellent. We look forward to our next visit to Kaido, this is a local treasure!

Kaido proved a particularly popular and delicious neighborhood sushi, off the beaten track of touristy downtown Santa Monica. The seafood was fresh, creative, and deliciously served. The bites were well-sized; easy to indulge too much. Hospitality was genuinely Japanese...
