Ordering and Processing Terms

Please Note: Because most of our fresh fish is hand cut, weights can vary per order. We make every effort to keep the weight variance within the weight shown on the product page.

All Orders Must Be Placed Online.
We do not have a brick-and-mortar shop so we are unable to accommodate walk-ins for shopping.  We do allow for pick-ups at our warehouse once order is placed on the website, the day before.  No same day order then pick-up.
Our service specializes in delivering to your door with our trucks (depending where you live locally) or via FedEx/UPS. You can also pick-up your order at our warehouse.  See time restrictions below.

Shipping & Delivery Terms

  • Most deliveries within 25 miles will be delivered next day via our trucks.
  • Deliveries within 25 – 60 miles of our facility can be delivered between 1 – 2 days depending on specific address of delivery.
  • Kai Gourmet reserves the right to decide whether to deliver via our own trucks or using a delivery service.  Recipient will be alerted if order is via FedEx/UPS with an accompanied tracking code.

How We Determine Free Shipping vs Charges

  • If customer’s final order (after discounts are applied) falls below the minimum requirement for free shipping, we will charge the fixed shipping rate depending on what zone the order is being delivered to.
  • Your credit card is charged once the order is packed.
  • Exceptions can apply if it is the fault of Kai Gourmet. i.e. order can’t be filled due to unavailability of item. In this case, we'll honor the original order amount for determining shipping costs.
