We had lunch here in a private dining room. The food was good, not outstanding, but the overall experience was excellent, and the price fair for the quality and outstanding service. If you want to try crab in Sapporo look no further.

We went there for dinner as part of a tour. There was crab and crab cooked different ways. Cannot remember all the types of crab we had but all were tasty and delightful. If you go for the crab menu be sure to like crab!

There may have been other stuff on the menu, but as far as I know it’s all crab everything! Delicious Sapporo seafood and every crab dish you could imagine. Fresh and delicious in a beautiful ambiance. Reasonably priced and worth the visit.

Enjoy these special tastes of Japan: Fresh crab meat sashimi and "Kani Sushi" only at KANI-HONKE! Enjoy "Baked Crab," sweet, mild Crab Tofu, and Crab Marimo (spherical, moss-shaped crab), Boiled Crabs. Enjoy original tastes of supreme "Kanisuki" (Crab Sukiyaki)", etc. Every dish only at KANI-HONKE! Have a blissful time in our luxurious space. Each restaurant looks like a grand castle on the outside. On the inside, it's like a folksy fisherman's house in the Japanese countryside. Have a blissful grand time in our luxurious and folksy space such as the Head of a fisherman's house in Japanese country side. We are happy to serve our guest to enjoy and satiety the best tastes of Crab.
