We sat in the private dining area and watched the chefs prepare our sushi. We also had the hibachi chicken as our lunch entree, which paired with the sushi was enough to take home for dinner. The service was as fantastic as the food!

I love sushi and found this spot. I had spiral ecstasy roll and honeymoon roll and it was really good. I also had stop by Torii one day for lunch, I also enjoy a good noodle bar, so this was right up my alley. However, it was ok, not the greatest. I had the hot lava beef ramen. It says... More

Being a local and eating here as much as I can..I had to comment on just how great this place is. We travel quite a bit all around this great country and one of our favorite things to do is try different hibachi places. I thought it was time to make a post about Kanki. Simple the BEST out there!!!... More

We were at the Crabtree mall and decided to give his place a try. A student of mine raved about it and said it was her favorite place to eat. We sat at the sushi bar as it was busy (good sign for a restaurant). We ordered a spicy tuna sushi roll and a more mild sushi that was akin... More

Savory steak, great food, authentic entertainment, immediate service--all good! We had come on business before and returned for another great meal. For less than $30 you get a great meal of shrimp, soup, salad, steak, rice, vegetables etc. If it is a special occasion, they bring free ice cream. I ordered the mint brownie cheese cake--which was delicious.

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
