Good Hibachi

we went with a party of 7 for the Hibachi grill. It was very good and the chef was very entertaining. The filet mignon was very tender and tasted great not to mention the fried rice. Very much enjoyed the experience.

Overpriced, value lacking. Nicely decorated. Not a horrible place, just so, so - and for the money = NOT decent value at all!

The sushi, seaweed salad, and squid salad were delicious! My mom doesn't like sushi, and her order from the hibachi grill was delicious as well!!

Dinner with friends was wonderful! We sat at a table so we could eat and talk. The waitress did a good job of explaining the choices. No one was disappointed with his/her choice. I had a Bento Box. We will return.

Unless you've never had a Benihana-type dining experience or you have a party of 10+, choose to eat on the right side of the restaurant away from the noise, smoke and show. There, it's a more intimate dining experience and proximity to the sushi bar makes your sushi and sashimi choices easier. There are tables and booths that fit parties... More

I have had some success at this restaurant if I go by myself and only eat Sushi. It is better also for lunch during the weekdays than dinner. Here is my experience for nearly $200 with tip for three people. Had dinner there last night. Staff was overwhelmed, and didn't get any help from management. We had a short 15... More

Rolled up to the Kani House in Dawsonville, GA on a Tuesday. Not a busy weekend night. We won't be back until we are 100% convinced that the place is under new management. It took forever to get seated. We waited in the bar where we were doubled billed. We finally got seated and it took over 45 minutes to... More

We went for dinner and enjoyed the food and the service. They have lots of Sushi including some very unique rolls. Also many types of rice and noodles dishes. The service was great. We were served by Anthony who was extremely friendly, kind and helpfull.

Went with about 35 seniors after visiting the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame. The Japanese cooks put on a show chopping up the onions, shrimp and vegetables and setting stuff on fire! The food was fantastic and the prices were very reasonable. Make sure to get the ginger dressing on the salad, it was awesome.
