Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fresh and delicious. We ordered both pizza and seafood and each dish was delicious. The Chirisaki bowl was the winner - hit rice, soy tuna and fresh salad veg. The kids loved the pizza. We also had sashimi and sushi and we couldn’t eat it...all, generous portions. We eat in one night (take mosquito repellant) and had pick up another. Service was SO good. And look out for sweet Pirate the kitty. Highly recommended.More

I was looking forward to eating here, great recommendations and a great experience several years ago. We booked early as we had a large group (10). We headed up the back for a brewery tasting but 2 of our group went down at 6:30 to...order their meals. The rest of us were ~10mins later. We were the second table to be seated. All orders were taken promptly. 1 diner got their meal in a reasonable time but he had finished before the next meal came out. Other tables were getting seated and finishing their meals before the remaining meals came out after 8pm. We would have left if there were other dining options available to us.More

What a gem! Freshest of Niue seafood with Japanese flair. Great atmosphere and service from Avi and family . The pizza oven makes sure you can mix it up and cater for everyone during multiple visits . Make it a definite visit .

Very good food. Went here a lot while on the island. Asked to have some spice on the pizza and was not disappointed. With fresh Niuean chilli’s. Awesome food and even better company. Definitely will be back.

Grabbed a takeaway dinner from here - a fish and chip meal and a donburi bowl-type dish that came in mild and spicy flavouring. Had great expectations based on reviews, but was left disappointed. Barely noticed the difference between the two spice levels of the...fish/rice/salad bowls and the fish and chip meal was pretty ordinary. Fulfilled the brief of dinner but wouldn't rush back based on this experience.More

Who would think that one could find pizzas this good in little place like Niue. Had to go back and have the sashimi and their take on sushi Niue style with both dishes 109% on song!

The food here was delicious. We had fresh yellowfin sashimi and enjoyed a few of their other fish dishes. Great little location on a seemingly perfect island

My husband had read reviews for this place and heard that it was meant to be some of the best Japanese food outside of japan! We were not disappointed that food was fantastic - we had four dishes between us and they were all great...- we have been to japan and can confirm that the dishes were as good at Kai Ika as they were in Japan. we had lunch so did not book. However it gets busy in the evenings so we recommend booking!More
