Worth the wait!

Can is the owner and only cook. His wife does all the serving. It is well worth the wait! The meals are inexpensive for the amount of food you get. Cash only. I always have a great time and Can is hilarious!

Who can open weekdays for a handful of hours, close on weekends and for the summer months, not have a business phone, and still create a demand that has you waiting in line for hours? One answer: Can. Can is the name of the owner and only cook. The only other employee is his friendly wife. Due to it being... More

The food is out of this work, prices are better then any other hibachi restaurant, and kan the oner is the best.

His place holds urban legend around NE ohio. People drive from Cleveland and Pittsburgh to enjoy japanese in what looks to be an old gas station. Odd hours and small place but good food and Ken is great!

This is a family run business. Kan is the chef and comidian / philosopher. He and wife Hen run the Japanese style resturant. They are open 4pm-7pm but may be there until midnight as people line up before thy open and wait. The wait is worth it( although we won't wait more than 2 hours) Prices are $9-$15. Open season...

The best teppanyaki style food anywhere. The building is a bit of a dive (former gas station) in a sort of iffy neighborhood, and the wait can be two hours or more, but the food is worth it. Be prepared to wait and stay a few hours. Go with with a lot of friends so you can have some plum... More

You have to get their early - hours are 4-7:30 and people show up at 3 to be the first in line. You have to be in the building by 7:30 even though you might not get waited on until 10:00. We usually end up waiting for several hours, but the food is well worth it! The line outside says... More
