Nestled at the base of Heavenly Mountain in South Lake Tahoe, Kalani’s Restaurant offers a unique dining experience like no other. Guests are greeted with a warm Aloha and are invited to relax and enjoy a comfortable evening in one of the nicest dining rooms in the area. Whether one ventures in from a day on the snowy slopes or from enjoying some time on the lake, our tropical and inviting dining room provides a distinctive contrast from the natural mountain setting of the Tahoe basin.
Our goal is to create an exceptional dining experience for all of our guests through outstanding service and creative dishes of the highest standards. Kalani’s cuisine focuses on the flavors of the Pacific Rim. We strive to create unique dishes by blending the fresh ingredients of Hawaiian regional cooking with Asian and European techniques and influences.
Kalani’s menu items are sure to please a wide variety of guests. Our dinner menu features fish imported directly from the Hawaiian Islands as well as high quality steaks and proteins from domestic ranches. Kalani’s also offers a full sushi bar with our signature rolls, nigiri, sashimi and other fun, artistic dishes. Additionally, our Puka Lounge offers a wide assortment of appetizers that go hand in hand with our full wine, beer and exotic specialized cocktail list.
We at Kalani’s would welcome the chance to serve you and allow us to provide you with a memorable experience.
