We have been frequenting this restaurant for many years. It was always fresh and delicious. Unfortunately, the last three times we ordered sushi it was mushy and uneatable . We understand that sometimes you have an off night. So, we gave it another shot. We have learned our lesson. We will not be returning there any time soon.

The steak and chicken were over cooked. The chef did not use much fresh garlic and as a result the fried rice, noodles and protein were a touch bland. The miso soup was good. The ginger dressing on the salad was below average. The "show" aspect of our chef was good but not as exceptional as some other Hibachi places... More

I am a novice when it comes to sushi but my daughters have converted me. Their favorite place in our area of Monmouth County is Kanji. On our last visit we ordered the sushi pizza for an appetizer and it was so delicious I could have just eaten that for my meal. We also ordered the Sunshine Roll, the Christmas... More

We had a luncheon with a group of twelve. We were seated promptly and a waitress took our beverage orders and returned with the teas and sodas. A mix of the steak, salmond and shrimp hibachi special lunches were ordered. The meals came with fried rice, noodles and sauteed vegetables. A soup and salad also came with the meals. My... More

Great food in a strip mall. Most would look right over it. Its BYOB but the next store in the strip is a liquor store. They didn't have the AC on the other night...during a heat wave. The meal was very uncomfortable.

A few of us from work came over here for their hibachi special on Friday. A Good value and meal for $12 bucks. I ordered the steak, some of the others orders were the scallops, another the vegetarian. The meals were all tasty and enjoyed. Of course there was the, fiery volcano and obligatory zucchini toss. Which only one of... More

My wife and I like this place as it is local and the sushi is decent. BYOB is not a problem as we have a better wine cellar than most restaurants in NJ, so we know we have a good wine to drink with no corkage. The Hibachi is like any Hibachi - fun in a group, not so much... More
