My husband loves sushi and the kids and I enjoy hiachi. The owners, Roger and Sue are delightful. The food is out of this world and so is the atmosphere. We have never been rushed and its a BYOB! Definitely worth giving it a shot!!

We have been to Kanji more times than we can actually count and have never been disappointed. We found Kanji years ago after our then favorite sushi restaurant changed hands. Kanji has wonderful food and we cannot say enough about head chef and owner, Roger, and his wife-they are wonderful. The restaurant also offers a loyalty program that actually pays... More

My one negative comment is the way the rush you. It's a bit annoying since you are paying more then average for the dinning experience... More

My friend and I came here for lunch. Kanji has a nice open entrance area. The waitress sat us in the dining area. There is a separate Hibachi area off to the side. We both ordered the Hibachi shrimp. It's served with soup, salad, fried rice, noodles and vegetables. The food is quite delicious. Topping iff the meal we had... More

I have never been for hibachi before. So my daughter treated me for dinner. She picked this restaurant. We had a wonderful time! The food was delicious & well prepared. Thank you JOE! I told my daughter I would like to come back with the rest of the family for my birthday dinner.

I have tried Kanji a few times but always left feeling like something was missing. Food is good, service is good but something is keeping it from being better than it is.

Lovely décor. Sushi is fresh and presentation is fascinating. I think after this post my secret is out. Plenty of parking and about 8 minutes from down town Red Bank by auto.
