Verdict

Eggs Benedict – 9/10
Full Kiwi Breakfast – 9/10
Mocha – 9/10

The All Day Breakfast menu was just what I needed on a hot winter day in Bangkok.  The breakfast was not the typical ‘Asian” style Western breakfast but a proper Western breakfast.  With the Full Kiwi Breakfast, Cumberland sausage was served, I was given the choice of two different eggs.  I chose a sunny side up and also a poached egg.  It also came with baked beans, cheese and toasts.  The bacon was a let down however everything was fresh and well seasoned.  I loved the Eggs Benedict, it was served on a piece of sourdough bread than the traditional muffin with avocado and bacon.  
I am glad we came by Kai New Zealand by accident, the food was superb and the staff was ever so friendly.  We sat outside at the terrace at first, however there were too many ants so we moved inside with the aircon.  We came at an off peak hour so there were plenty of empty tables however this place is packed during happy hour because of their laid back vibe.

Would I go back again? Yes if I am in that area
