Good food, decent prices, quick service

Had a good first experience at this Hibachi-style restaurant. We knew the ppl at the table next to us that were just finishing what must have been an exactly opposite time, but we had quick, courteous svc, they had good food and decent prices. We'll definitely be back.

Eating can be a chore but at Kani House, it can be lots of fun as you sit around the Habachi watching your meal and prepared right before your eyes by a professional staff having fun, too. The food is delicious and in the proper portions, not those huge ones which are a thing of the past. Atmosphere is wonderful... More

We absolutely love Kani House!! The shrimp and steak hibachi is excellent as well as the dragon roll sushi. Very good and an excellent value. Love the hibachi "show" and is a great thrill for our little guy.

My husband and I went on a date to Kani House. We love Japanese steakhouses, and decided to give Kani House a try. The restaurant is large and well decorated and we were seated quickly. Our server came right away and took our drink orders and our food order. I ordered steak and shrimp and my husband ordered chicken and... More

We were traveling back from Cleveland, GA, and I just had to have hibachi. My kids hate the stuff; but when I found out I could get them FRIES at Kani house, I knew I had a winner!! We ordered them the kids hibachi with fries instead of the rice. The adults ate most of their veggies; but even without... More

I am not a big hibachi fan so I am only commenting on the sushi bar. The sushi chefs are masters! The fish is amazing and beautifully presented. They will customize rolls or sushi per any special request. The service is great. We have been eating at the sushi bar at least once a month for the last several years... More
