My husband and I went for Sunday lunch. As always, it was a great experience. The chef was entertaining, food was delicious and always a plus, really good sweet tea! The only negative was it was freezing! The gentleman seated beside me made the comment to me that is was very cold and he could feel the air blowing down... More

As a frequent business traveler I often choose restaurants out of convenience and proximity to my hotel. That's what happened when I went to Kanki and I am very happy to have found this place. It looks like it is primarily a Japanese steak house (and the restaurant was packed with diners at the hibachi) but I went for the... More

Our food was great! The sushi chef did a really good job. I ordered two rolls, and it ended up being way more food than I could eat. Presentation was beautiful. The only negative was that our waitress ended her shift while we were there and didn't say anything to us before she left. We ended up waiting quite a... More

While traveling through Raleigh we decided to stop at Crabtree Mall to shop and have lunch. We were seated promptly. Our waitress was very nice and kept our drinks full. Since it was our granddaughter's 20th birthday our chef carved out the number 20 in the rice and placed lighted match sticks for her to blow out. Very nice. We... More

We have been to this location so many times, we keep going back because the value is excellent. But this trip the serving sizes were just huge! The soup and salad bowls are larger, I don't know I'd an overall serving size increase has happened here or what but bring your big appetite for sure. Our chef, Lucas, was the... More

We arrived at this place that looks like a TGI Fridays or Rubys just with Sushi and Japanese food. There is a hibachi section, but with 30 min. wait we went to the bar section and ordered our food. They had 30 min. wait on the sushi so we ordered some starters. One of those arrived long after our sushi... More

I have so many mixed emotions about this place. They do not take reservations and there is always a wait, so if you know you are going to wait then it's fine. The service is great from the bar to the server to the chef. The food is just okay but it is so much fun! We took the kids... More

The Food is still decent but the show has gone downhill. The cooks come to your table to cook and they just seem to be going through the motions. It has gotten very pricey for decent food and a lousy show.

Worst bartender ever. It looked as if he had just woken up, his skills were the same. Drinks were watered down and expensive. Ordered veggie roll, each piece fell apart the second I picked it up! Maybe if the service was better....
