Invited to a Child's birthday dinner, we were sat at the Hibachi Table, dirty, worn out and faded menus rested upon poorly washed dirty and stained plastic plates, my wife was in the ladies room and watched our server wash her hands in cold water with no soap, no Soap in dispensers, after visualizing what the kitchen staff may be...

Everything was horrible. The service was slow. Appetizer and sushi entrees arrived at the same time. The chicken appetizer tasted as bad as chicken nuggets from a fast food place, sushi were horrible and were served on hideously looking plates. To top it off, restaraunt was full of vulgar creatures constantly making very loud neandarthal-like sounds at hibachi tables. Jacksonville... More

KanKi Japanese steakhouse is our favorite in all of Jacksonville. The food is fantastic, they give chop sticks on request and the best of all is if you dine here on your birthday they give you a free dinner. They have a sushi bar as well as the table top cooking but we always opt for the table top cooking.... More

I was in town visiting friends and they took me here wanting me to experience hibachi. I had never eaten this type of food before. The whole experience was very good. I enjoyed sitting around the chef as he prepared the food and gave us a bit of entertainment as well. Everything we ate was very good. I would definately... More

We went to Kanki to celebrate my birthday. They will give you dinner for free ( only on your birthday and someone has to purchase a meal at the same or greater value). Great show, great food!

The evening started all wrong by the moment we showed to our 7pm reservation and were told we need to wait 15/20'. 35 minutes later we were showed to our table. Hint to the restaurant : DONT TAKE RESERVATIONS IF YOU CANT HONOR THE TIME YOU PROMISED. By 745pm we got our drinks (almost 10' after we were seated). Service... More

Recently went with some friends for a birthday celebration. Turns out, you get a free meal for birthdays BUT it must be the exact day and you must have proof. In this case, it was a child and we didn't bring the birth certificate, but they accepted the medical insurance card that listed the birth date. Our waiter was prompt,... More
