This is one of my favorite restaurants. The food is good, the atmosphere is very comfortable. You feel like you are in another country, especially if you sit in a booth. The owner is always around making you feel like you are eating at his house. Very good menu, both Chinese and Japanese.

Recently ate here for lunch with a large group. We came with more people than expected and the wait staff were right there to add another table to ensure our comfort.

No surprises at Jani. Standard Chinese fare. The food is consistently good, the service is always professional and friendly. The dining room is comfortable with no crammed in tables and usually an acceptable noise level. Parking is plentiful and prices are moderate

Jani's has excellent Chinese cuisine. sushi is available but I'm not a sushi eater. Seating is plentiful, large groups are easily handled. Decor is somewhat dated but comfortable like an old shoe

New Years Eve, 2014 and the 12 of us made our yearly return on this date to Jani's Restaurant in Hicksville, NY. We all ordered the selections from the Chinese food menue and were not disappointed. The "Sesame Chicken" was delicious and the "Cold Seseme Noodles" was a delightful companion to the chicken. There were many other dishes selected by... More

Jani is a Chinese, Japanese, sushi, noodle, dim sum restaurant. We were in the mood for dim sum. We were promptly greeted and seated and then served hot tea and water. Fried chips were served with hot mustard and sweet sauce. The noodles were very greasy. We ordered a variety of dim sum items after being told each one would... More

Great for a quick and inexpensive lunch. The luncheon specials can't be beat. Dinners are good also. Try the Hanan beef.

Not the best chinese restaurant. Portions small and sometimes not cooked properly . Not cheap. The restaurant could use a good clean up and redecorating.
