Tiny hidden gem in the back streets of Sedgefield. The most delicious freshly caught fish you could ask for. Don't expect anything fancy, this is a self order place. Just get there early because you won't get a table.

Mr Kaai just keeps on impressing. We go regularly in a group. Their fish is legendary! Always expanding and improving where they can. They have broadened their offering and now include savoury pancakes as well.

Their small fried hake portion is really generous and is enough to feed an adult. Their chips are also generous portions and is not the traditional "slap" chips but crispy chips. Very good food and freshly prepared. A must visit when you are visiting Sedgefield.

The food is very fresh and well cooked although I have had very oily battered fish there. The salads are delicious.

There's nothing flash about the premises, but the fish and chips are excellent and the service terrific. If you get take away, drive down to the river mouth about five minutes away for a nice view of a pristine beach.

We went one lunchtime, one of those typical quirky little places with an outside eating area. Lovely people/service and the food was amazing! I had the seafood platter and it was huge - easily enough for 2. Very good value, and wonderful fish.

Don’t just get a takeaway- stay and enjoy the atmosphere and the great outdoor space which is quirky and cool. We had the seafood platter for two shared between 3 of us for lunch and it was simply divine! Don’t miss this little gem even...More

What a lovely little spot in Sedgefield. Very reasonable but really delicious seafood. Everything is prepared to perfection - you can try the salads, fish and calamari. You will be served quickly because the cafe set-up is such that you can order at the reception...More

Hi Sathie they have salads (also greek salads) and only fish ... so if you are a vegetarian eating fish you will be fine. Am not the owner of Kaai's though ... maybe you contact them directly. Best
