Istanbul cafe culture tradition
We believe that life is about relationships, and relationships flourish through food. At Kai, Istanbul cafe culture tradition comes together with traditional culinary methods. We focus on pristine traditional ingredients and cultural dishes that can be enjoyed and shared between friends and family. Our menu pays modern homage to some of Turkey’s most ancient flavours – showcasing beautiful Turkish influences and exotic flavours. Our pita bread is made in house and grilled in a fire oven and our shisha is carefully selected from sources we have encountered on our travels to Istanbul.
Kai offers handcrafted cocktails and Turkish beer, spirits and wine to enjoy with our selection of mezze and mains. We look forward to welcoming you.
